I get by with a little help from Sofia

Sofia ADORES her fratellini (little brothers) and is always wanting to help us care for them.

Yes we have our hands full!

Everyone makes comments to us when out in public with the bambini. I must say, however, that the comment, "You sure have your hands full!" is no longer amusing. Don't get me wrong, I love talking to new people (strangers), but this comment has simply been exhausted. The Eleanor of the 80s would respond, "NO DUH!" especially if the comment was made by a certain little sister or brother.

FUTURE GOAL: Have t-shirts made for us to wear that read "Yes, we have our hands full!"

Sweet Potato Sweeties

Jack and Benjamin have started eating solids. They've really enjoyed peas, sweet potatoes, and carrots. They've also had green beans, but didn't seem to like them as much... YET- but, we'll work on that!

A Happy Ben loves him some sweet potatoes!

A Happy Jack loves him some sweet potatoes, too! The messier the better!

Our Two Happy Boys

Experience the way sweet potatoes make them chatty! They were telling me all about it.

New Year's Eve- Happy 2009!

Our friends, Sarah and Rich invited us to their house for a lobster boil on New Year's Eve. Rich had driven through Maine 2 days earlier and picked up live lobsters for us. He rigged up a cooler and air pump to keep them alive so they would be fresh. Though we kept listening for the shells to whistle, we never heard them. I thought that's what was supposed to happen!

My dad came down and for a few days and got to celebrate New Year's with us!

Rich and Sarah

Nola, Sofia, Abi, Ben, and Jack
