Family Hiking Trip

Here's us hiking the other day, although they say you can use the Ergo on a 5 year old, I don't think I'll be using it when Samantha is five. Hiking uphill with a almost 2 year old on your back was quite a work out, I can't see myself doing still in another 3 years. We got a good workout on this hike. We hiked up the falls at a state park close by with Peter.

Never Trust a One Year Old

I'm having some friends over this weekend. I have a lot to do to prepare. I have to cook dinner for 8 people. And I have to clean, clean, clean 3 floors and the yard. I was very upset with the fact that Samantha napped on the way home from the store this morning and woke up when we got home. I was planning on cooking some things when she was napping. But I was surprised that she was being very well behaved, while I cooked for two hours. She was happily playing. I was jus thinking wow I was totally underestimating her, she doesn't need to be entertained all the time. I could see her playing, in the doorway to the bathroom. The toilet was closed so I wasn't really worried. Then I looked over. She had gotten a box of spaghetti out of the cupboard had it all scattered on the bathroom floor, and was attempting to open the toilet and put it in. I must remember next time, a quiet one year old usually means a naughty one year old.
Lesson learned.

We're getting visits this weekend from our favorite Met fan (little Jim) and our favorite Yankee fans, David & Peter. Tim was very upset that a picture was even taken of Samantha in a Met hat. I promise, it won't happen again.

So cute

I have nothing really to post about. We've been busy with summer stuff. But Sarah emailed me this and it is so cute I really want one for Samantha. She would look adorable. However they are ridiculously expensive. I can picture her in it, so cute...
You can find one of your own at

Speaking of Sarah, she shared this news yesterday. Congratulations!

Please Touch

These pictures are from the Please Touch museum in Philadelphia. It was so cute. A great museum for little ones. I think its up to age 6. Sam loved it. We are going to Long Island today for Emma Kate's and Sara's birthday parties. I am so tired of traveling. We just got back from a 4 hour trip Tues and now I'm leaving again.

oh, and Tim woke everyone up when he left today. 1 hour before I have to get up.

Pick My shoes

Pick my shoes for my sisters wedding, and Samantha's. My dress is brown and Sams is white.


REad this article, those of you with babies. Many bottles are made with a chemical that isn't safe and that leaks into what your child is drinking. Here's a article about it and what bottles are safe and what aren't.

Many bottles are not safe. The bottles I used (Dr. Brown's and Avent) are not. they also tell you which ones you can buy.
