What a fun and relaxing summer we've enjoyed thus far. Our days are spent mostly playing outside. Sometimes in the driveway the kids will drive their trikes and trains in circles and later it's to the backyard to play on the swingset or take a dip in the kiddie pool. The kiddie pool has definitely gotten more attention since Sharon put Analisa's (her grand-daughter) little slide into it. The kids just LOVE it! What Sean also loves is having another playmate. Analisa along with her parents are living upstairs for the summer and so whenever Sean sees Analisa outside he wants to be out there too! Today Analisa blew bubbles while Sean and Emma-Lyn chased after them.
Emma-Lyn was in for her 18 month shots this past week and did really well. She got upset when they put the needle in but then quickly settled and was back to being her happy little self again. We got to weigh and measure her so now she is a little over 25 pounds and is 31 inches tall.
Funny comment from Sean this evening: As we were snuggling before putting him to bed, he pointed to my belly and said, "Mommy is your baby still in your belly?" "Yep, you know I should let you feel him in there sometime. Not right now since he seems to be sleeping." "Oh, is he in his crib in there?... Is the door shut?" "Ummmm, I guess so?!"
Both kiddos love going to the park and especially the one at Glen Stewart School. And here are some cute little shots of them playing:

King of the playground. He loves climbing up this structure and just sitting on the top.
