Clare’s First Steps

Clare finally took her “official” first steps on Sunday at the pool.  It is amazing how different kids are!  She is so different from either G or J.  Grace walked at 10 months and Jake at 11 months, but they didn’t talk much until they were close to 2.  Clare is later with mobility milestones but much more talkative.  She says so many words!  She’ll even point to the backyard and say “swing”.  She loves to swing in my lap.  She says bye bye, hi, dada, mama, Juhjuh (Jacob), Gah (Grace), Emma, eat, swing, outside, slide, shoe, eye, nose, foot, ball, and much more!  She is so much fun and growing so fast!

Happy Daddy’s Day!

After a rough start to our day (and if you witnessed our Mass behavior you know what I’m talking about), we ended up spending a relaxing afternoon out and about.  We went and picked up a bottle of wine at World Market and did some browsing at Best Buy (the twins loved the media area with all the movies on dozens of huge TVs).  Then we rode the trolley to the Waterway and ate dinner at a restaurant on the water and had some ice cream after we rode the trolley back.  We got home in time to get everyone ready for bed and either asleep or in their beds by 8:30.  Of course, as I type this, Clare is waking up.  That kid just doesn’t want to sleep without me beside her. 

Waiting for the trolley, you can see it coming up the street

Wedding Photos

Back in April, the twins were in George’s cousin Tina’s wedding.  The pics just went up on the photographer’s website this past week.  Here are the ones of the kids.

Last T-Ball Game

This morning we had our last T-Ball game of the season.  I think, in retrospect, that the twins weren’t quite ready for group sports.  We definitely spent more time playing in the sand than we did on the field, but we still had fun and that’s what counts.  I’m looking forward to next year!

Our Team went to Chuck E Cheese after the game.  All the kids had fun, even Clare who enjoyed scooting around, pulling up on all the games, and pulling kids’ tickets out of the games while they were playing.

This one had them totally mesmerized.

We finished up the day with a Spaghetti Dinner in honor of St. Anthony of Padua’s feast day.  He’s our parish’s patron saint.  We had a good time and the kids enjoyed running around the gym with their friends.  It was a busy but fun family day!
