Look at that double chin!
If you haven't noticed, Evelyn has "stork bites" at the corners of her eyes and one in the center of her forehead. I know there is a technical term for "stork bites" but I was in a bit of post-birth haze when the nurse told me. Lots of kids have these little markings and they usually fade by the end of toddlerhood. I am not sure why...but I love these little markings on Evelyn.
Yes, I had to bribe Isaac in order to get him to sit and have his picture taken with the baby. However, he is currently quite easy to bribe. I told him he could sit in his ribbit chair on his big boy bed if he would just take a few pictures. I might not be so lucky with easy bribes in a few years...
Isaac loves to clean...here he is cleaning his window ledge with a wet wipe
Isaac has become quite the puzzle fanatic. He has quickly moved from basic wooden shape puzzles into jigsaw puzzles. Here he is working his nine piece tiger jigsaw puzzle that is quite difficult. We are on a constant search for challenging puzzles for him.
Obviously this puzzle session was after nap time , thus the reason for the nice bedhead
We had a lovely Memorial Day weekend that included a family trip to Target where we purchased Isaac a super cool pool for the summer, super cool work news for Tobe, breakfast at the Cracker Barrel where I consumed no less than four cups of coffee, two movie nights once the kids were in bed (films viewed were "Shut Up and Sing" and "Children of Men"...both great flicks), a shopping trip alone in search of clothes that fit, Tobe surprising me with super cool new tennis shoes (even Isaac thinks they are cool), our first batch of fruit salsa for the summer (I will post this recipe soon--it is a great summer treat!), and a grocery store trip to Central Market involving just Isaac and me in which every customer felt the need to talk to Isaac about the apple he was eating quite adorably (Central Market has a kids fruit stand where you can purchase pre-washed fruit for your child to munch while you shop). I hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend as much as we did here at casa de phillips!
