Still Here...

I just wanted to let all my faithful blog readers (both of you!!) that we are still alive!! July has been a crazy month...we moved into a new home and went on a 10-day vacation out west. I will blog about these two events when I have a bit more time, but for now, here are some pictures of our adorable munchkins...
Abby lovin' on her little brother.
My little fan after his first minor league baseball experience. Go Hagerstown Suns!!

Can't get much cuter than this!!

National Zoo

We've been keeping ourselves pretty busy this summer. After my first week alone with two kids, I decided I had to keep busy or I would go crazy! I'm just not the type of person to stay at home all the time so needless to say, I've become rather proficient at handling both kids outside the house. We've gone to several parks, the library a few times, to the free summer movies at the mall and I even went grocery shopping by myself with both kids last week. Before having Landon, I thought I would have never attempted these things alone, but it has actually been easier than I imagined it would be. It helps that Landon absolutely loves both his sling and Baby Bjorn, so once I pop him in either of those, he's out for at least an hour or so which leaves me both of my hands free to play with Abby.

Last weekend we traveled as a family down to Washington D.C. to the National Zoo. It was pretty hot, but we all had a good time, especially Abby. She has been to a couple of zoos before, but this time she was really into it and knew all of the animals and what sounds they make. It was so fun to watch her get excited about seeing all of the different exhibits. Here are some pictures from our time at the zoo...

Abby has been so good with Landon. She is a big helper for me and she loves to give him hugs and kisses. I am so happy that she has adjusted so well (at least this far.)

And to celebrate Landon's milestone of being 4 weeks old today (wow, time is flying!), I have included a couple of picture of our little man before church last week. Although he's less than a month old, he already has that "GQ" style!!
