Language Development

They say just before 10 months of age, the expression of emotions becomes more complex. And he’s beginning to understand language, but can’t yet use the words himself. Nevertheless, he makes himself quite clear.

TBT: Little Monkeys



Today’s Throwback Thursday photo is from five years ago this week.
Martin was away at basic training, and I had these little monkeys all to myself! Crazy to think that five years from NOW, one will be in university, one will be a teen, and the other a tween.

Worth It

Martin just called to report that Jaz came home from school with a headache, and is taking it easy on our couch.

Me: “That doesn’t sound like him. Oh my goodness, WHAT HAPPENED?!”

Martin: “Chill out, chill out. It’s okay. They were playing soccer, and he scored a goal for his team with his head.”

Jaz (in the background): “WORTH IT!”

Tax Season

We done already done had ourses! American taxes signed and filed. He’s already thinking of the amendments we will need in the future, while I mentally prep for the burning dumpster fires waiting for me at my office.

It’s FRIDAY, ya’ll!!!!

TBT: Travel in Italy

Today’s Throwback Thursday photo is from March 2005, taken in our hotel room in Florence, Italy as I got our daughter dressed for the day. My parents were with us from the States, and after breakfast, we continued our adventures by driving to Rome with a pit-stop in Orvieto for lunch.
