I finally finished our 'headboard' photo collage. Assembling this was like a gigantic puzzle game. Lots of trial and error. The worst part of the process was one night a photo fell off the wall and hit Nathan in the face. He wasn't too happy about that one. Oops. Sorry hunny. I spent the next day reinforcing.

Beckett's ever the crafter--we made a pirate ship equipped with 3 sails and portholes. Just in case it ever found itself in a battle.

And one last one of my sweet babe, who's not really a babe anymore.

Ollie Baby

Sweet Ollie bear is 18 months and since we totally forgot his first birthday (moving countries and being sick will do that) we celebrated his half birthday with some friends last weekend. 

At 18months he:
-runs around like a crazy man
-tries desperately to keep up with his brothers
-loves swimming--he's mastered his water wings
-runs into the elevator and stands with his back in the corner, hands behind his back
- kicks his feet happily when I put him down for a nap
-loves eating grapes and oatmeal
-can say 'dada' and 'hi'
-nods yes whenever he's asked anything
-only snuggles when he's tired
-gets into everything
-pushes his food off his tray when he's finished eating
-stares at people blankly when they try and interact with him
-always has a smile for daddy
-loves the binkie
-usually sleeps 13+ hours a night

We love Olliepop!

I rarely just sit and browse the web, but today I found some fun stuff to ogle over. Thought I'd share.

Thailand 2013

An update! After half a year, I still remember how to log onto this thing. We took a trip to Thailand earlier this month and had a blast. Longboats, elephants, curry, pina coladas, sunburns, monkeys, thai pancakes and massages were some of the highlights. I want to go again!
