Ok, I'll admitt, I have been neglectful. I have chosen walks in the sunshine over blogging. I have chosen trips and dinner with friends over blogging. I have chosen naps and extra long coffee-quiet times over blogging.

But I choose to catch up (ketchup) on my blogging silence.

Last weekend I spent a wonderful weekend with two very good friends. J came down from NY and we drove to see M and her precious kiddos Z and B.

It was great to see and spend time with such good friends...and the mini vacation from being a mama was LOVELY... the captain was a trooper and daddied up for the whole weekend! Father son bonding and what-not.

I learned J was with child! (even though she is so skinny a strong wind could knock her over)

and her little bambino is making her TIRED!

Z is as cute and loquacious as I could have hoped for.

M is the best mommy (such patience) and B is ADORABLE!

I cleaned out my diaper bag and found 7 spoons...

I took the boys on walks

I gave them crazy hair during lunch whilst I applied sunscreen

Rigg is starting to scoot and bounce... crawling might be in the near future....

All the moving wears a little man out

Andy had his one year check-up with an MRI and EEG ( I am sorry I did not mention it so you could pray...) Everything came back clear... THANK YOU JESUS!

Rigg is getting big (or staying big) at his 9 month check-up he weighed in at 23 pounds and was 32 inches tall... he still has 8 teeth!

Ok... all caught up. But I would like to know...did my absence make your heart grow fonder? :)

2 things:

1) Thrilled to hear about Andy's test results

2) Totally stoked to have "made the blog" - Wow, if I had know all it would take to make the famous Cari blog would be to get pregnant, me and "S" would have had a baby long ago!!! : ) Hugs

definitely fonder.

Yea for (almost) crawling! Sarah likes to "carry" things in her mouth, too. I think she looks like a little puppy when she does that.

I'm excited for Julie!!

Ok now your making me feel bad... I need to look up the word loquacious (it sounds way cool;) AND I need to do some "ketching" up of my own.(ketchup) I am scheduling Josie and big kids into my planner for a photoshoot with Mommy. (so sad it has to be that planned) But alas it must be done so I can post it. Peace to you friend, AWESOME news about Captain! Yeah God! lv, jen
