July 2-10 Vacation

Our family vacation this year was a few day trips to Sesame Place, Adventure Aquarium and Dutch Wonderland. On the days were didn't go anywhere we relaxed, went to the park and the pool. Alexander had a great time at Sesame Place, he loved going on the rides and playing in the water with Avery. Alexander even met Bert and Ernie! We saw a show while there, where Xander and Avery were able to watch up close by the stage!

Alexander loved seeing all the fish and animals at the aquarium. He even gave his pacifier to the seals! We were able to touch sharks, watch the stingrays and seals swim around.

On Friday we went to Dutch Wonderland, but we were having too much fun to take any pictures. I hope we can get back out there before the summer is over!

Pictures from June

Just pictures this time

Long time, no post!

It has been brought to my attention that it has been forever since I wrote a post. We have been busy the last few months, with house hunting and family visits.

We had a great Easter with Alexander this year, but he did not have that big of an attention span for the egg hunt!

Sitting next to it is easier

In May Amie and Aiden came out for a visit, and the boys had a great time playing together. We went to the Strasburg railroad and the boys loved seeing the train.

Welcome March...I hope you will bring the spring weather with you!

Alexander is 15 months now, where does the time go? It has been amazing watching him grow into a little boy from a baby. He loves to walk and run all over the place. He has enjoyed playing outside when the weather has permitted for late winter. I think my family is ready for spring to sprung! I know Andrew and I are looking forward to taking walks as a family again and finally getting to use that wagon we bought for Xander's first birthday. This spring has some fun trips in store for us already, a trip to the zoo, Sesame Place, and we want to take Xander to Strasburg Railroad to ride the train!

I took Xander to his 15 month check up last Monday. The doctor was very happy with him and how he is progressing. Xander now weights in at 26 pounds, 14 ounces and is 32.5 inches long. He's a tall skinny boy now! The doctor confirmed that all of his baby teeth are in except for his two year molars. I scheduled a visit to a pediatric dentist for the end of this month just to make sure everything is going well for the little guy's teeth. 

Here are some new pictures of the little love of my life:

Acting silly!

Fun in the snow

Winter 2010-2011 has been a very snowy one for the region again. It seems like we are getting one or two storms a week right now. I personally can't wait for the spring and warm weather to arrive again. Xander has been enjoying learning what snow is and playing in it.
