spring cleaning

We had a few trees that died this year so on a rainy Memorial Monday Shane and the two neighbors, MD and Cheddar, took them down.

It has been pretty warm here lately. It is starting to feel like summer.

A surprise visit

Shane's cousin Craig, who lives in Denver, was out in our neck of the woods for work and we were lucky to have him stop by the house to meet Simon and then go out for dinner. It was a fun visit and we were happy to have the chance to catch up with him.

Simon is such a busy little bee these days. Since discovering his new ability to scoot across the floor it seems that he has really started to thrive as a man on the move. The minute we set him down on the floor in the morning his is instantly crawling and squealing with excitement , this continues until he heads to bed at night. He has even been so excited that it seems he has lost interest in napping. The other day he had managed to sit himself up in the crib and after I heard him squealing I checked on him only to see him sitting up clapping and laughing in his crib. I only hope all the movement will catch up to his little bod and that he will eventually realize he is exhausted and fall back into his 3-4 hours of naps each day. For now we will settle for a super happy little guy that is eager to find out just how much he can get his hands on!

Mother's Day

We had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend. Yesterday we went fishing and spent a lot of time out in the nice weather. Today we went out for a late breakfast and headed to the park for some swing time. Hope all you moms had a nice Mother's Day.

army crawl

Simon had a big week. On Tuesday he started clapping his hands, Wednesday cut his first tooth, and Saturday started doing the Army Crawl! Baby-proofing the house can't happen soon enough.
