Touch a truck

Yesterday we went with some friends to an event called "touch a truck"...a little boy's dream and I must admit that I was quite excited to see these vehicles as well! There were dump trucks, fire trucks, moving trucks, tanker trucks, "bob-bob" trucks...a bus, ambulances, and even a studebaker equipped with a surfboard and a man convinced that I needed to buy one of his boxer puppies. (obviously he was oblivious to the baby I was carrying and my banshee of a two year old running wild). We enjoyed it all until the end...Jennie, if you are reading we had a tantrum that would rival the one you experienced at the zoo. How fun it must be to be a boy!

And today the nap goes to...

absolutely no one in the Broadrick house...are you kidding me????

Note to self: Max-Jean is a lousy babysitter...

Unless you need nearly every inch of your porch colored a beautiful color of blue!

1 month photos

Here are 1 month shots of Mary Susan is her oversized onesie! I can't even believe that she is already one month old (acutally now 6 weeks). She is smiling and cooing...we are starting to recognize her cries and needs more regularly now. And I can say that after a scary 1 month check up I gained perspective on children and my daily enjoyment of each of them. Although my house is a complete wreck and at moments almost puts me over the edge, I try to remind myself each day that this is a season and it is passing by far too quickly already.

Friends, remind me of this on the hard days!

1 month stats:
10 lb 7 oz (90%)
22.5 inches (90%)
Head---don't remember but 50%

1 week later back at the dr she weigh 11 lb 1 oz so the girl is not missing any meals!!!

Bo's first day of "school"

Bo started a wee care/mother's morning out this week. He is going 2 days a week and loves it. He is so excited to see his "friends" and "teachers". Bucky taught him to introduce himself and say, "nice to meet you Ma'am" to his teacher. It is very funny to hear. Poor child did come home both days this week in his spare outfit...poor thing...maybe I should tell the teacher it might happen more often than not!

Gone fishin'

We spent a few days at the lake for a change of scenery with the 4 of us a couple of weeks ago. It was a nice time to relax and get away...we figured a drive to the beach was out of the question with a 2 week old! Bo had his first fishing experience with his daddy and PawPaw which he LOVED! He was such a big boy walking around the lake, talking, and just in general bigger. My heart just melts over him and watching how he explores more and more.

Happy Late Birthday Daddy...

Dinner at Steak & Shake (kids eat free on weekends)

And Bo enjoying the big cookie cake!

Picture please!

These are some comical attempts to take pictures of my two children together...will it ever happen???

Bo's 2nd Birthday

Only a month late :) We had so much fun celebrating Bo's birthday. Although we did have an uninvited guest that we hadn't anticipated making an appearance at the party---Mary Susan! We planned the party the week before his actual birthday and my due date (August 9th). However, the party ended up being the day after we came home from the hospital. It was a great transition to have all the focus on Bo. Both grandparents, Bucky's grandmother, and Bo's friends Jacks & Wil all celebrated with us. We had "Bob-Bob's" (Bob the Builder) everywhere. He was so excited and I still can't believe my baby is 2! He continues to amaze us with his expanding vocabulary and fun personality. He is such a sweet big brother (when he actually acknowledges her existence).

Blowing out the candle!

Opening the presents...

Jacks was so excited and so entertaining with everything. Bucky's mom said it reminded her of Bucky with his friend, Mack when he was little.
