Spring Is (Finally) Here

After a winter that dragged on far too long, we finally got our first dose of spring last weekend. It couldn’t have come at a better time, as I was becoming increasingly concerned with Carter’s odd behavior the longer we were cooped up in the house. He would spend hours at a time alone with…

Spring Cleaning!

With spring cleaning in full gear this weekend, Carter thought he’d lend a hand by helping sweep the house. It didn’t go nearly as well as I had hoped, and if he keeps this up, I might have to invest in large amounts of spackle. Clearly, Mugsy did not agree with his approach either. (CAUTION: You might want to turn your volume down, as Mugsy voices his displeasure throughout the first half of this video…)

Twinkle Twinkle

The hits just keep on coming. Allison and I might have to think of putting an album together soon — today’s tune: twinkle twinkle. He’s been singing this for a little while now, and every now and then, he’ll throw in random names at the end of each line. Listen closely and you’ll hear that Betty and I get a shout out in this particular rendition.

Carter In Disguise

When I dropped Carter off at daycare the other day, he went straight for the dress up box that the other kids were playing with. A couple of minutes later, and he was in full disguise.

We’ve been working with Carter on his ABCs recently and he keeps getting better and better. Here’s a recording I was able to take the other day, when he was in a practicing mood.

Recipes of the Month: March

Allison and I both really like cooking, but with our busy schedules, it can be difficult to find enough time some evenings. With that in mind, for the better part of this past year, we came up with a fun idea to take turns cooking one new recipe each week. This allowed us to experiment…

Weekend with Mommy

This is Allison taking over blogging for the week.  This is my first time making an official entry. Unfortunately, my camera skills aren’t up to par, so the images might be little fuzzy. Vish left last Thursday morning for a golfing weekend in Kansas City.  This meant that Carter, Mugsy and I would be on…

Easter Weekend

Judging from Carter’s obsession with the Easter Bunny over the last couple of weeks — it literally went everywhere with us — it was safe to say he was very excited to travel to Iowa City for a long Easter weekend. He could hardly contain his excitement as we left the house, repeating “Grandma” and…
