Shore Scenes

We had another wonderful week back down in Avalon the week of Fourth of July.  The weather was perfect each day.  We swam, played on the beach, ate our favorite meals and enjoyed family and friend time.  

Tatum got his very first boogie board which has been such a hit.  Teddy did great and couldn't wait to get his fingers and toes into the sand.

This & That: Summer Snapshots

Summer has been flying by - the boys are both at such fun ages - Tatum is old enough to start to do activities and Teddy is at such a fun baby phase.  We spend a few days a week at the pool and Tatum has a lesson once a week which he loves.

Lots of firsts recently too - Tatum had his first tennis lesson last week and he absolutely loves it!  We've played with his racket every day since.  He also got his first big boy bike with training wheels and wakes up asking to ride it.

As far as Teddy's firsts, he just recently tried baby food (cereal) for the first time and loved it - he also loved holding the spoon.  He loves to army crawl his way to any toy he wants and is such a busy body!

We've been doing all the summer basics - sleeping in, doing s'mores and marshmallows, playing outside even though it's been in the 90's most days recently and staying up late (sometimes)!

Theodore: Six Months


Six Months!  I can't believe it's been half a year since our little Teddy joined our family.  He is at such a fun age - is always smiling, drooling up a storm, slowly working on his army crawl and can move himself all over the place.  A couple days after six months we tried baby cereal for the first time and unlike his brother - he loved it!  Looking forward to seeing his other baby food likes.  He sleeps 11-12 hours at night and tends to still let himself get over tired sometimes.  

Trips to Nantucket, Avalon and the lake house were all on his agenda this month and he continues to just go with the flow following big brother around to his activities.  Speaking of big brother, he loves to hold Teddy standing up, lay next to him in bed and jump into his playpen to play.

Lake Scenes

 It's been a busy summer so far and we've had a few nice visits up to the lake.  Tatum really enjoys it this year more than ever and we've all enjoyed our new jet ski's on the water as well as the family time.

We spent Father's Day up there as well as a few other weekend and look forward to some more longer weekend stays throughout the summer...
