shut down

We had a bit of excitement this afternoon, when there were three police cars outside our house, dealing with a minor issue at the neighbors. Audrey thought it was funny to tell Charlie they were going to be taken to jail and convinced Charlie to hide under the couch with her.

twenty-six months

Charlie's language abilities have exploded! The boy whom I was worried would never talk is talking in sentences and saying new words every day.

It is so nice to hear him express himself, even if it hasn't helped as much as I had hoped with the occasional meltdown.

We love this crazy, little guy!

Susan started her spring break early with a lunch with me, Audrey and Charlie.

Even though they wouldn't try anything greek on the menu, they were both very excited about the pasta with parmesan cheese.

off to see the wizard

We hadn't seen Brylen, Amber and Patrick for way too long. So when we decided to see a puppet show at Todd's hometown library, we got together with them for breakfast, then all went to the show.

It's like these two were never apart.

Patrick kept Charlie well entertained.

Sitting so nicely waiting for the show to start.

Charlie checks out the puppets after the show.

Before heading home for Charlie's nap, we got to visit with Nana and aunt Nancy.

drop off

Todd's car is in the shop getting some work done so we took him to the train this morning.

Charlie was thrilled to be so close to real trains and insisted we stay and watch several more go by, even after Todd was long gone on his way to work.

tap tap tap

I visited with Sara today while Audrey was in school and she gave me some great hand-me-downs from Emma. Despite the princess gear, Audrey was initially the most excited about the tap shoes. I think she may be giving up ballet for tap this summer.

Today we dug it with Mike and April for lunch.

Audrey and Charlie were both very interested in Mike's tats and he was more than happy to show them off.

free pancakes

It isn't very often I take both Audrey and Charlie to a restaurant by myself, but today was free pancake day. How could I pass that up just because I didn't have another adult to supervise with me?
