Catch-up part 2: Trip to Utah

We had so much fun taking care of Greta, in Utah, while Somer and Brock went to China. Between Lindsey, Lauren, my mom and Reghan, there were always extra hands around to help. Greta was such an angel, I really couldn't believe that she was just smiling and happy all the time, she went to sleep when she was tired, and ate all her food at mealtimes! Made my kids look like monsters. We also loved having aunt Reghan in town from New York.

Axel loved having a back yard to play in at my mom's house. He also had a super fun time at his two day sleep over at Caca and Honey's. It took a couple of days for him to recover from so much fun!

Lulu and Greta tooled around the house together-these two are going to be trouble together someday-I can see it coming.

When we left Utah for home, so did my mom, Lindsey, Lauren and Reghan, only they drove. We met up the next day and spent the rest of the week doing fun LA things. We went to the Grove, the Getty Center, toured cool neighborhoods, swam, and had a great time. Being the out-of -towner, it means so much to have family visit, so thanks for coming!

Catch up-part 1

I have a lot of catching up to do. The past few months have been so busy-but with lots of good times.

A few weeks ago when I took Louisa downstairs for her nap I left Axel, the world's slowest eater, upstairs to finish his lunch. It seemed awfully quiet up there as I was coming up the stairs. Axel, who didn't seem particularly tired that day, had actually fallen asleep while eating his lunch! I went over to get the camera and right after these pictures were taken he slid off of his chair and hit the floor before I could catch him. Drowsy and confused he looked up at me and opened his mouth and it was then I realized it was full of apple-he had actually fallen asleep mid-chew! Poor kid. Guess he was really tired.
