william, you may not be very enthused about the tractor now, but trust me, you are going to love them.

william, 1 month old, playing on his mat. or as mary martin calls it, his baby house.

someone insisted on wearing her winter coat today while it was 100 degrees. then she asked for ice cream...go figure.

a sweet treat for the sweet girl.

4 years and counting...

today is our 4th anniversary. we celebrated with dinner at tico's last night (thanks for babysitting, shari!!) which was delicious as usual. and tonight we will have our traditional chocolate strawberries and champagne...that's what we had the first night of our honeymoon. i'll spare "all" my readers the mushy stuff...but we are very happy and very blessed. :)

sweet william

it's so hard to get a cute picture because of the floppy head. :) but i promise he is a cutie!
snuggling with mommy and mary martin

all 3 of our children. gus hasn't missed a beat, he is probably excited for an additional plate to lick in the near future. and mary martin is beginning to like william. if you ask her if she loves him she will at least say yes now. and if he cries and i'm not in the room, she will bring him a stuffed animal or a toy. it's pretty cute.

william is still doing great and we are feeling very blessed. he is eating and sleeping very well...only up once in the night! usually at 12 or 1 then again at 4 or 5, which is still kind of night time, but i used to get up at 5 every day for school so i'm giving him a break on that one. :) plus i get to go back to sleep until princess mary martin wakes me up between 7 and 7:45.
we went to the pediatrician for his 2 week check-up and he is in the 67% for weight, 57% for length and 52% for head circumference...we are excited to be on the chart! mm didn't even make the chart until she was about 13 months old! yes, as in 0% (or 100% of children are bigger than she is) so this experience continues to be different and wonderful! not that we would trade the first one..that's probably why this seems so much easier.
