Happy Earth Day!

Grandma and Grandpa Pieton left this morning, Earth Day, after a wonderful visit. Their help around the house and with the kids was GREATLY APPRECIATED. We're looking forward to their next visit next month.

The following video is from the Pietons previous visit (in February), but I didn't get to post it before. We thought it was hilarious. As you'll see, Jack is not a big fan of baby food.

Swing me faster, Grandpa!


Sofia was my little gardening helper. She likes to help water (feed) the flowers.

Buona Pasqua (Happy Easter)

The hunt is on!

Sofia had a number of Easter Egg hunts she participated in this year. We had so much fun watching her gather eggs. My family was able to come and spend Easter with us, which was so nice. We had a great visit and really enjoyed the extra help. We are convinced that we want my sister to be our nanny! She was such a wonderful help along with my mom, dad, and brother. Madison was a great help with Sofia, too. We got to help her celebrate her 10th birthday while she was here. Happy Birthday Madison! Come back again soon!

Home and Healthy

I'm happy to report that Benjamin is home from the hospital and doing well with his bottle feedings. His feeding tube had fallen out Wednesday (for the 2nd time) and his doctor allowed him to see if he would decide to eat more from a bottle before putting the tube back in. Well, Ben did well and continues to eat more and more everyday. He's still on a high calorie, hypo-allergenic formula (Neocate) which is $139 for 4 cans! He goes through a can every 2 days. That's been a crazy adjustment.

We're so happy that he is home and I think he is, too!

Ben at the hospital- so happy even though he wasn't feeling well.




Glad to be home
