preschool songs

Here's another video of Oliver from November. He's singing two of his favorite preschool songs, Little Red Caboose and the goodbye song.

he calls me sweetheart

I am finally going through some of my video footage from as far back as November and came across this clip:  

Oliver went through a phase a few months ago where he called me sweetheart all the time. I think I kind of miss it!

Look who made the cover of the March 2013 issue of Seattle Magazine! Yep, miss Penny!

Happy Valentine's Day! Hope everyone had a love-filled day :) A few pictures of the cutest Valentines you'll ever see!

Valentine artwork

Valentine artwork by the boys! This was the first time Elliott has been interested in painting at preschool and he painted the first heart below all by himself. He even did a great job of dipping the paintbrush in the paint. Oliver has not been that interested in artwork this year (which is much different from last year where he spent nearly every day at preschool at the art table) so I was thrilled when he got into making the salt dough hearts.
Elliott's first painting! When Oliver saw it, he said that Elliott painted it for him :)

walking again

Now that Elliott is feeling better (he was sick in early January followed by teething pain) he has been walking like a champ. At home he has just about given up crawling and I love it when I come home and he walks over to the door to say hi!

shopping cart

Shopping carts are a big hit in this household!

January pictures

We have been so busy lately and my posts have definitely been lagging. Here are some unpublished January pictures!
Oliver asked Nick to build him a Duplo Monorail, and Nick created an awesome one!
Oliver loved it!
umm, a two-bodied monster?
finally, a happy boy!

Penny waiting for her turn in the studio!
It's Raining Cats and Dogs was fun! I was nervous before being on the air for the first time yesterday (actually the third show) but ended up having a blast with trainer and friend, Wynona. Penny also joined us in the studio and for the first half she sat on a chair between Wynona and I, it was cute! All of the podcasts from the show are available here and you can listen to hour one here and hour two here.

Penny and I make our radio debut tomorrow! Not the best timing as the show is right before the super bowl. For those of you who are local to the Seattle, you can tune in to 97.3FM at 1pm, tomorrow, 2/3. For those of you out-of-towners, I believe you can watch live at this link: 

 My schedule will be about every other week on average, and I have the next few dates scheduled:
2/3, 2/24 and 3/24. The show runs from 1-3pm, and I'll warn you, there are a lot of commercials.
