Wedding Wardrobe Preview

Gabe's tux and Claire's sash came in the mail today for their upcoming roles as flowergirl and ringbearer in Erin's wedding in August. I couldn't resist trying them on to see if everything fit, and then of course posting a picture of their adorableness. I think it is cool (and also a little weird) that this is Gabe's third tux in his 4 years of life.Trey will be sporting Gabe's first tux as the second ringbearer. Watch out, Nini! Your little people might steal the show come wedding day!

Ducky Tub Revival


The ducky tub is making its third go-round as the tub of choice for 6 to 12 month old Traynor cousins. Did you know you can fit 2 kids in it as long as they are not actually in the bathtub with water?

Two-Wheelin'

Another milestone -- Gabe can ride a bike with no training wheels! I was making dinner, and when I came out to check on them, he was tooling around the garage doing big loops without falling down (or slowing down hardly!) When I asked him how he figured it out, he said "I just thought about it and then I did it." However it happened, we couldn't be prouder of his big accomplishment. Check it out:

Mudcakes (aka Waffles)

A rainy day doesn't keep our spirits down. Gabe and Claire (who was decked out in her cupcake dress in honor of her birthday) pulled on their rain boots and went outside to enjoy the weather. While I was watching, they were running in and out of the garage to get dripped on. When I went inside to make dinner, they started making mudcakes. Yes, in the cupcake princess dress. When I went back to check on them, Claire was a muddy mess. Oops. She offered me one of her creations and said "Here Mama - it's waffles."
