He will leave no toilet paper roll... rolled!
I guess that's what we get for leaving him unattended for 5 second!
(that's alright, it made for some pretty cute pictures)


Thirty, me?

Although I turned 30 two months ago I have been very reluctant to write about it. Me, thirty, not possible, right?! I don't feel like 30. Do I look like I am 30? What DOES 30 look like? Why is it that 30 seems so much older than 29?
Well, with the help of some time, some good friends and a lot of wine I think I have finally accepted the big 3-0. Maybe this decade won't be so bad. It's got a lot to live up to with such an eventful 20's, but I am sure we can top it. It started out right with a great dirty thirty Lake Chelan weekend. If this is 30, bring it!

Thank you Lauren and Jeff for hosting such an amazing weekend. It was a real reminder that it doesn't matter how old you are when you have friends that you can act like your 21 around. Can't wait to do it again... next time hopefully Dan can join us.



He did come... 2 weeks ago!

The Easter Bunny that is!
This year I was blessed to be able to spend Easter with my family (somehow Easter always falls on my weekend to work. Tis the life of a nurse!).
After church we headed to the Hirst's for an Easter brunch with most of the Cross Clan. The kids had fun hunting for eggs and then proceeded to eat ALL their candy.
Dan and I got to go out for a run by ourselves while Alex napped and Tyler played with the cousins. Can't tell you how long it has been since we did that! It was heaven!
Dan and I have been busy these last few weeks... but that is for another post!
Hopefully I get around to downloading pictures and writing it before the news turns to old news!



One more month!

There is something about that big 1 year birthday...
It makes things kind of official that they are no longer a baby. Sure, I can dress him in Carter's sleepers, put him in size 2 diapers and carry him in the infant seat, but I can't keep him from turning one. My baby is no longer a baby!
This month Alex is on the go. He has a new found appreciation for the art of crawling and he uses it to the best of his abilities. Don't get me wrong, he still much prefers to be held but now he can follow me from room to room whining and crying for me to pick him up instead of just sitting in one place hoping I would come back. Oh joy!
He is an eating machine. It is kind of as if he is saying, "I'll prove you wrong Dr. Champoux!" (At his 9 month appointment Dr. C was pushing to get some weight put on him by his 12 month.) He loves anything we put in from of him, broccoli, carrots, chicken, ground beef, you name it, he likes it! He has taken to calling all food nana (Nana likes to think he is talking about her). So there is no question what he wants when he starts waving his arms and yelling naaanaaa with all his might! My milk supply is slowing so we decided to start him on cow's milk to get him used to it. Like we assumed, it didn't phase him one bit. He still likes to nurse first thing in the morning and last thing at night though.
Alex is continues to be a happy little guy... as long as he is being held:) He is a rockstar napper taking 2 2-3 hour naps a day. Wish I could say that about the night time, but we are working on it. He is always smiles, especially when brother is around. Much to Tyler's dismay, that dreaded day has come... Alex is enthralled with what ever big brother is doing.
We love this little guy and couldn't imaging our lives with out him in it.


Hanging out at the WBC

Dan, the boys and I decided to spend Dan's last day before work relaxing... the best that the Bugbee Family can relax with 2 little boys, an anxious daddy and a house on the market. Luckily, the weather was on our side for once. After Tyler got home from school we all headed down to the Windermere Beach Club to enjoy the sunny Seattle day. It was beautiful! I think that it really renewed Dan and my spirits. We walked away feeling refreshed and ready to take on all the chaos that we are facing over the next few weeks. Now, if only we could have these "renewal days" about once a week we might be able to make it through.


We have been a little busy around the Bugbee House.
Dan and I have been working like crazy to get the house on the market. Check it out here. Luckily, I have wonderful parents who are allowing us to take over their house for a short time so the stress of keeping it clean for showing is a little less. It's been on for 3 days now and we have had quite good traffic, yet no bites! The brokers open houses have brought great feedback, however, talk is cheap. Bring on the offers! Luckily, we have the best Agent/God-Momma around. Thanks Sue for putting up with us!
