Vacation Video

LT Swimming on the first day

The last day - he got more fearless everyday!

Even DT was learning new things on this trip.

We're back

In case anyone noticed we were gone, we were on vacation!

We went to Puerto Vallarta and had a great family trip. Here is a teaser picture until tomorrow when I have time to upload some video...

Can you believe it? I did it! I finished their outfits while DT could still fit in it! Just in time for the trip.

Well, I gave in and got a mom car. Sort of. A sporty mom car. A mini-minivan. I think they call it a crossover? It does have 3rd row seating, so we will be able to get 6 in. I will have to rearrange the carseats, though, for that. Probably put LT in the back row behind DT. Plenty big, though, for everyday and just the 4 of us.

I don't know if it's just because my old car was 8 years old and economy, but wow! This car feels so luxurious!

My favorite feature is built-in bluetooth. Perfect because, you know, here in CA we have to be hands free cell phone while driving now.

LT got a new carseat, too.

DT seems to enjoy the ride!

And here's DT enjoying LT's heart pillow landing on his tummy yesterday...

Possibly LT's most favorite person in the whole wide world came to visit ... cousin JT! They were a bit crazy. :D

Dueling airports

A sprinkler ball series.

One boy

Second Boy

Three Boys

This was followed by some relaxing in the hot tub. LT never stops swimming now.

And the little one got to enjoy the exersaucer for the first time.

The first weekend we were here we went to a birthday party and one of the other moms asked how often they saw each other (LT & JT). When we said just a few times a year, she couldn't believe it because they seemed so close! After that birthday party, we had a preview of LT's birthday party back at our house. I think BLTSr took some video on the other camera, so I'll have to download that...

100 Days

Happy 100 days DTT!

100 days has gone by so fast and yet, it seems like you have always been with us. I love watching you laugh and smile at your brother's antics. You also love it when Mommy gives you kisses or pumps your legs. You like to grab toys now and put them in your mouth - if your hand isn't already in there! You smile and laugh easily. We love you!

I took DT in for his picture to celebrate. Do you know which 100 day old baby is which?


An aside:

Mel wins the blog contest! You all may have been thrown by the sword. I don't think Indiana Jones has a sword necessarily, but he does have a dagger sometimes. LT said he needed a rope to play Indiana Jones, so I asked him if a ribbon would do, and it did. LT hasn't seen the movie, so what he knows is based off what he hears at daycare. It's amazing that he knows the tune and words to the Spiderman and Ironman themesongs and the tune to Indiana Jones themesong, all without hearing the actual songs!

Who is this character?

Here's a bit of a blog contest. Guess who LT is protraying in this "show"! First commenter with the correct answer wins something! (Not sure what yet. :D)
