Running errands in the truck

When Mike is using our Honda, sometimes I borrow my parents' truck to run an errand--don't worry, we only drive through the lawn--no road driving. Yesterday, I needed to move Alan's big boy bed frame to my parents' so I could paint it in their yard while the kids played. Our yard isn't very conducive to kids for playing in yet, we still need to fence off some danger zones.

At the New Haven Park

I took the kids to the park today. It's been very pleasant outside so I thought I'd take advantage. They had a great time. Alan went down the slide, went on the swing, and ran all over the play area. Rosie spent the whole time happily eating crackers in the stroller.

First Haircut

Alan had his first haircut today. He was adorable and perfect! Grammie and Grampy came for the event.

Rosie's 5 month check up

Rosie went to the dr on Tuesday for a check up and she came out with flying colors! Aunt Devanie babysat Alan so I was able to pay full attention to everything at Rosie's appt. Usually when I bring Alan along he melts down and screams so loud that I can't hear a thing. I once had to call the nurse after I left to ask why I had the RX I did for one of the kids. Alan does not like going near the dr office.

Anyway, Rosie ranked in the 98th percentile for head size (which prompted the dr to also measure my head and declare it larger than usual). She weighed 17.4 lbs and was in the 90th-95th percentile for weight. I remember Alan's fifth month check up so well and can't believe I'm already there with another baby! My, how time flies!

Roly Poly

Marie Rosie is growing bigger everyday. She's a great smiler, giggler, and eater. And she still has her big beautiful blue eyes. I can't believe she's already 3 months old.

Today we ran some errands and then had Auntie Maureen and cousin Max over for dinner. Rosie and Alan enjoyed visiting with them. Alan had lots of fun playing chase with Auntie Maureen.

Postman Alan

One of the many gifts Alan got for Christmas from Grammie and Grampy was a Melissa and Doug mail box. As you can tell from the photo he might have a career as a mailman in his future.

This moment

I was trying to get dinner ready so we could eat at 5:30 promptly but Alan was becoming increasingly impatient to go outside. So I decided to take a break and chill with him in the backyard.

I'm most of these shots he's getting gravel and dropping it in old post holes which is apparently very entertaining.
