many new things

i just don't have a lot of time to write these days... the boys are changing so fast, and keep me busy from 7am until i finally go to bed at maybe 11pm. right now, i'm especially tired, after two atypically wakeful nights, but i wanted to share some landmarks...

shoghi has finally, finally started socially smiling, and it is completely delightful. now the race is on for who will let out the first laughter. he also spends 20 minutes or so on the playmat, batting at the toys and kicking his legs in excitement. he actually grasped a toy the other day, and i caught the moment! he looks so much like his uncle simon, it's amazing.

i put together the used mountain buggy stroller a few days ago, and it's awesome! so nice to be able to walk without wearing one... don't get me wrong - i wear the boys on and off all day long and love it, but my postpartum body is much changed, and frankly, i hurt all over. i've been taking motrin for days now for my poor, aching joints and muscles.

anyway, love the stroller.

max is starting to get his hair back, and as we all suspected, it won't be red... i'm sure we have two brown-haired boys. he's almost 12 pounds now!! he is such a happy little guy, with cheeks as edible as the shiny red apples they resemble.

i don't know... i had a bunch more composed in my head, but it's all gone now. i've got to do a big nursing update soon, plus we're leaving on tuesday for our big trip east.


  1. Ditto on the body thing - I wake up with sore hips, a crooked neck, etc! Is it the extra 15 lbs I haven't lost yet? Or the exhausting days taking care of the babies!?

    I can't wait to hear about your trip - how in the heck did you do it alone?? Wow!

  2. Your two boys are really very cute; as they grew up they need to have double buggy or a double stroller .I suggest Mickey sport buggy which can be converted into double stroller that suits your babies.
