Visiting Santa!

Last week Latham, Ronan and I went to visit Santa. I didn't tell Ronan that that was what we were going to do, because I didn't want him to freak out; I just told him we were going to the store. When we got there, he saw him and said, "Santa!" He had no problem sitting on his lap, but didn't quite understand the question, "What do you want for Christmas?" Ronan answered by telling Santa all about our Christmas tree at home. Latham slept through the whole affair. As we were leaving he said, "Bye bye Santa, see you later". Ronan loved the candy cane that he got, so we bought a box of mini candy canes and he shares them with his friends and family members. This year's visit was so different from last year's, when Ronan cried the entire time so I had to be in the picture with him.

Ya, I don't like it!

I got Ronan a new winter coat last week, and for some reason, he didn't like it. I'd mention it and he'd say, "Ya, I don't like it!" I figured that I should get him saying that on video, since it was so cute. I also got him to talk about his little brother, "Baby Yay-kun".
Enjoy the short video!

Edible Art

My friends threw us a baby shower on Monday. Along with wonderful friends, food, fun and games, there was an absoutely amazing cake! Definately a work of art!

My favorite is the little baby and teddy bear made out of fondant icing - wow!

Bob the Builder...er, make that Ronan the Builder

Since we've started on the renovations, Ronan loves to help Daddy. Ronan finds his tools fascinating, and he can't keep his little hands off of them. When we were at Lowe's this past weekend we spotted a Lil' Helper kit, and we couldn't resist. Ronan loves it, but can only play with it when Daddy is working on renos.


I was taking a nap when these photos were taken; when I downloaded all our photos to the computer, I found these and was howling with laughter.

All ready to help, Daddy!


I love the miniature toolbelt, it looks exactly like Collin's real one.

My Boys

Ronan and Latham are doing great, and we have settled into a new routine now that we have two little ones.

Mommy and Baby Latham

Bath time - not very fun as you can tell by Latham's reaction, but it's over fast...

...and then he gets wrapped up in a nice warm towel.


Ronan studiously checking out a book that he got from friends, Kathleen, Olivia and Gavin.


100% Boy

This is how I see Ronan these days when I'm holding Latham - he is right in my face wondering what the baby is doing and how the baby is doing.


Mommy?!?
