Spring Break

Nan and Pop Horne came for a visit for Spring Break. We had a great time, and Amos got lots of Grandparent attention. Eric and I capitalized on the free babysitters and enjoyed a couple date nights.

Amos loved all of the attention and is definitely going through some withdrawals.

Our family. We're starting to dress alike.

Beanie has become a push-up champ. He can do more than Eric and I put together. Seriously, he is getting scary strong.

Gated Community

With Beanie's new ability to roll, squiggle, squirm, and twist we've decided it was time to protect the stairs and the Bean. Here's the little jailbird:

Follow-up to "Malfunction": He definitely did it again. And again.


Its really the little things that keep me entertained as a mom. Like yesterday, when all of Amos' kicking caused his play gym to collapse on him.

Luckily he thought it was funny. I am sure he will keep doing it now.

These last couple of weeks have been really busy for us. Eric and his team launched the beta version of their new website, They have been working on this project for over a year, and to see it come to life is truly amazing.

I hope you'll all visit the site to check it out, and share it with your friends who might be interested. Its currently in the beta form, which means a lot of changes and new applications are still going to be added, so be sure to check back in the future to see it evolve.

Thanks for all of your support and get ready to kick some class.

I'm such a mommy now


It really struck me tonight as we were watching "Step Up 2 The Streets" when all I could think about was how fun it would be to dance with Beanie. We dance together a lot and he would have really enjoyed the soundtrack. Seriously, don't laugh, but I L-O-V-E movies like "Step Up 2." I definitely missed my calling in life as a dancer. I blame my mother who let me drop out of ballet when I was 6. No, not really. I might be lame, but I will definitely be watching Step Up 2 again. I think you should all see it too.

Little Laura

My mom just found these gems and sent them to me. I would guess that I am 1.5-2 years old. I think they look a lot like Amos. I sure hope he gets blond curls like that. The older girls are my sisters, Liz and Kate.

More of the 5 month old

Here are the new bear pictures, and some other cute ones.

Learning to sit up

I've been trying to teach Beanie to sit up, and he is finally getting closer.

Eric likes to point out the drool mark on the couch where he face planted.

5 Months Old and Mobile

Amos turned 5 months old today. He's not crawling yet, but he definitely gets around. This morning I set him on his play mat and went into the kitchen to load and start the dishwasher. When I came back there was no Beanie to be found. Only an empty playmat. It took me a minute to figure out where he went...he was hiding under a footstool. Silly baby.

Father/Son time

Amos gets to be more fun everyday. Yesterday he and Eric had some father-son time while I was at the spa. They got lots of work done.

Amos sent me an email!
