Life with two...so far

We are very slowly starting to get into a routine here at home, and juggling the two kids has become easier in many ways. Rafe has started bringing his brother his blankets, and letting him "hold" various stuffed animals for him. Rafe also likes to pat Arlo on the head, and touch his eyes (which I of course discourage!). Rafe tells me when Arlo is sleeping, and makes sure I don't forget to put him in the stroller before we go on a walk.

As Arlo has gotten older and the weather is getting warmer and less rainy, we've been able to get out of the house more often, which does wonders for all our moods. Rafe starts preschool next month (every day for 3 hours), and I think he will really love it, once he adjusts. It starts at 9:15, and I have to admit I am a bit apprehensive about getting everyone out the door on time. It is about a 15 minute--or 12 minute brisk--walk away, or a couple minute car drive away. I'm very much looking forward to 3 hours a day to get some housework done, exercise, or maybe even blog ;)

Unfortunately I don't really have any new photos, though if you want to stay up to date you can find me on instagram. Here's a little video of Arlo smiling and cooing (which he started doing earlier this week). Enjoy!

Welcome, Arlo James

Hello again! As many of you are probably aware, it has been a very long time since I last made an appearance on this little online space of mine. I am really hoping  to slowly update more often, as I have really missed this creative outlet. My expectations aren't too grand, however, as we are happily (and sleepily) adjusting to our new life as a family of four.

So for now, I simply want to introduce Arlo James, born at 3:40am on January 15. He weighed 8lbs 11oz, and was 21.5 inches tall. We were a bit surprised by the dark hair, as Rafe is blonde, but are completely smitten with our newest little boy!
