Tough Week

Now that this wonderful cold had been passed through the family with hitting me I began thinking "Hmmm maybe I got lucky this year."
It was just waiting for Noah to start teething before it decided to attack.
Now that Noah is writhing in pain and waking up 13 times a night, Why not toss in the good ol' flu? Yay...

Little Noah... fell asleep while screaming in his walker.

Good thing is Eli has decided to step it up and make Noah smile by playing with him.

On a boating excursion to Candy Island... Eli's imagination not mine...

An End in Sight?

For a year and a half we have all suffered through the dreaded
Terrible Twos!
The sneaky, misbehaving, non-cuddling, tantrum throwing, sleepless toddler days.
Cross your fingers... knock on wood... find a four leaf clover and break me a wishbone...
but I think we are seeing a reemergence of our sweet little boy!!
Lately he has been very kind, doing things when asked and actually dishing out some affection everyonce and a while!!
Can I be the first to say

Just Eli

I just realised I haven't blogged about my little Boog lately.
He is really just growing up amazingly fast lately. I cant believe he will be 3 so soon.
He tells extravagant stories and will have long drawn-out conversations with you.
He docent "play" with Noah, but he tells him that he loves him and will try to make him laugh when he cries. He can be boyishly aggressive, but then feels very bad if he actually hurts you.
He knows everything hes allergic to and likes to recite them to strangers.
He is on a definite dinosaur kick. He has a dinosaur encyclopedia that he looks though everyday.
Oh and yes those are UNDIES hes wearing! We are working on that...

We are all just miserable this week.
Two words explain it all.
Cold Season
We all have different aspect of it though.
Daddy has the nose downpour...
Eli has the hacking cough...
And poor little Noah has the throat.
He cant laugh or goo or even cry. He lost his voice yesterday. When he cries its the most pathetic thing I've ever seen. Its like hes whispering. What can I do? I cant give him cold meds. Any suggestions mommies?

Glass Beach

No one else in my family enjoys Glass Beach. They're all beach "loungers"
I LOVE Glass Beach!
Its so photogenic.I love when you reach down to pick up sand you're rewarded with beautiful, colorful glass. Old glass bottles that have been worn and rounded by the constant waves.
The squirrels are the chunkiest squirrels I've ever seen and the flowers are unnaturally vibrant.
I wish I was there now.

Down to the Shore

Why is it that people on the west coast say "to the beach" and people on the east say "down to the shore" Just a silly thought.
We took advantage of our dwindleing summer, packed up our boys and drove to Fort Bragg.
The salty cool air, un-naturally vibrant flowers, friendly downtown knic-knac shops... everything about Fort Bragg is homey. We only make it out once a year but it feels like home everytime we come back.
Maybe someday my husband and I can grow old, watch our boys go off to college and start their own families and retire in a old cottage "on the shore".
