The last couple weeks in far too few pictures.

Liam's losing his baby teeth one after the other.  Another one out yesterday.  Priceless, toothless grins.

The grandparents came through once again.  A couple days ago, a tent arrived in the mail for the boys.  Jesse only swore five or six times putting it together.  But not just our average, everyday, run-of-the mill tent.  No, this one has a TUNNEL.  A TUNNEL that makes Harry absolutely giddy with delight.  A TUNNEL that allows him to escape and hide out from Mama when she wants to do something sinister like put him upstairs for a nap or check to see if his big boy pants are still dry.  The TUNNEL is awesome.

catch me if you can!

Although it’s been a terribly dry summer, it has been rainy and wet… oh, pretty much since this came in the mail.  So right now the tent and tunnel are taking up far too much room in our living room.  But the boys are enjoying it and it is buying me some much needed grown up time.

Liam is a very tall six, so he’s a tad too big for the tunnel and tent.  But he enjoys struggling into and out of it nonetheless.  Yes, the Bionicle is surgically attached to his hand.  And yes, that is an incredibly goofy smile on his face.  But at least it’s a smile.  AND his eyes are open. This is progress, people!
