Summer is here, finally

The weather is finally getting nice, my brother is visiting this weekend, and our planned vacation is a little more than a week away. I'm really excited about my brother coming - he is my half-brother, and we really only got to know each other over the past 15 years. He has a really neat family (4 boys) and they are all coming and staying at my house on Saturday night. Sunday we are going to go into Boston and do a duck tour... and then they are off to the Berkshires for the week.

For our vacation, we are staying home. This is what we usually do, and as I've mentioned in the past, Aaron will be embarking on his favorite thing - tearing up a part of our house. This time it is his workshop. I'm hoping to be able to work on the nursery. But Hulk is going in for his minor surgery on the 6th...so we'll have that to deal with also. I am excited for a block of time when I won't be dealing with work bullshit. Things at work are just annoying and crazy.

Hulk is so funny now that he is crawling. I want to make a video in which I put 3 items on the floor - a teddy bear, a sharp stick, and a knife. I will bet a million dollars that he will first crawl to the knife, then the sharp stick and then, reluctantly, the teddy bear. He is also finally figuring out that he can follow me places, so it isn't such a crisis when I leave the room. Oh! And the bath scare seems to be over. Last night he was totally fine in the tub, and had a great night's sleep. I'm hoping that keeps up for the weekend when I have 8 people trying to sleep in our house!

At my house, Jillian will make a beeline for the dog food every time. I can't tell you how many times I've fished dog food out of her mouth. It's like it has been doused with baby attractant or something.

Enjoy your visit! I have my mom in right now, and have totally been slacking on reading blogs. Trying to catch up now!

Hi Cece!

It's Cristy from wscmmota.

Thank you for checking out my blog! I'll add your blog to my list of blogs. Can you do the same for me?

If so, wait a few days 'cause I fell behind due to a big, unexpected commitment. My blog looks really lame right now!

Congrats on the girls!! That is FANTASTIC! I plan to be a follower!

Talk soon,
Cristy
