Wesley’s birthday lands over Spring Break this year, so school held his Montessori classroom celebration a bit early. This is the idea behind the Montessori birthday celebration: “Children are given a first impression of the relationship between Earth and the Sun and taught that a year is the amount of time it takes for Earth […]
Sunday in photos (and a new look for the blog): new clock (and new time) tulips added the yummy kidrobot egg to Wesley’s bed pillow collection a trip to Dunkin Donuts an early birthday present a little TV watching while daddy napped a bicycle ride and a trip to […]
I’m not sure why we skipped out on Santa photos the past two years, but this year, Wes so excited to meet the man, we couldn’t say no. And holy smokes. Our boy’s baby days are waaaaay behind us. ( Santa 2009)
I love Halloween, and I love this age Wesley’s at. 3 has been absolutely full of wonder and awe and laughs, and I can’t get enough of it. This was also the first year Wes picked his costumes all on his own, and on Halloween night, Craig joined in the fun: For his school’s fall […]

Twice now he has scolded me for calling him Wesley instead of Wes.
It was a bit like “let the wild rumpus start” last night before bedtime.
