spring soundtrack

I've been out of pocket lately, but I'm back to the blog this morning. There's a breeze outside, one last cool dip before the real heat of summer approaches, and I have the new Steve Nicks album playing in the background. I love her and her romantic, gypsy vibe. We had our friends the Hayes in town this past weekend. A walk to the Community Tap was our first stop and a perfect weekend continued with lots of good food, a baseball game, walking downtown, and relaxing in the backyard. We sat outside on a blanket, throwing the ball & feeding the baby bird mini pieces of bread. Every time the wind blew the smell of honeysuckle filled the air which was like heaven. We talked and talked and talked until the minute they left. Tricia and I even curled up in bed at the end of one night with magazines and wine while the guys watched the draft. It was so fun to show off our town.

So, some big news on the bay front…drumroll please…Miss Miriam is officially crawling. It took her 10 months and she's a tad wobbly, but look out everybody. She'd been rocking for a while now so we did some coaxing with an apple. Kinda like you would a pony and it totally worked. Then it was like a lightbulb went off and the girl was mobile. I watched as she went straight for that air vent and dusty, hairball in the corner of the room. You notice a whole lot more dirt when you're on your belly. Darn, gotta get that swiffer out asap. She also reached for the small bookshelf in her nursery with a heavy vase on top. Hmmm, apparently I can't procrastinate any longer on baby proofing. Looks like life is changing right before my eyes.


  1. Looks like the perfect weekend.

    I thought you were going to say that M was going to be a big sister. Haha!

    Collins is officially a walker. I can't believe it. But it's not bad... no different from crawling!

  2. Go, Miriam, go!!! Little miss Rainer is into stuff too. She's probably a tad slower as she still prefers the butt scooch, but I am having to babyproof much more than I ever did with Kate!
    I always love seeing pics of her, she is just the cutest!!!
