Spring Break



Coolidge and I spent our spring break visiting Aj, Sean and the girls in their new home town Columbus, Ohio. It was our first time meeting baby Lily and we both just fell in love. Aj and Sean have a beautiful new home with more room and toys than Coolidge knew what to do with. They took great care of us and we took the kids to some indoor play grounds in their area. Coolidge loved running, jumping and climbing with no shoes and no coat. It was great to see how they are living and now I have a picture in my mind when her and I talk to her on the phone. The most amazing part to me was sitting with Aj looking at the two mini versions of us. I went to high school with Aj and always hoped we would continue to be friends once we were married with kids but, never really believed it would happen. Thanks guys for taking such great care of us we had a blast. Here are some more photos of our trip.

Ben stayed home and enjoyed a break from all the hard work he put into the play. It was good to just have some quality time with my girl Aj. We are looking forward to them coming to NY some time soon.

Some other exciting news is that my younger sister Brandi has moved to St. Louis to live with her man Jeremy. She took off yesterday and is driving her stuff with my brother across the country. I am very excited for her and her new adventures. We wish her all the best. I also want to say happy birthday to Mitzi and Kendal. They both just celebrated a birthday. We hope they had a wonderful time on their special day.

We also gave Coolidge a new haircut. We have been wanting to cut his beautiful locks into a Mohawk but never had the guts. His hair was the perfect length and decided to do it. Check out the new doo. We are also working on potty training. We were so impressed with Maya and how well she was doing that we thought we should give it a try. He is so proud to be in underwear and loves the way it feels. He even talks about how Maya goes potty and wanted me to take his photo.

My pregnancy is going well. I am officially in my third trimester and my seventh month. I just saw the doctor and everything is just fine. The baby weighs about 2 lbs but feels like seven to me. My belly is much bigger this time around so I can't believe she is only 2 lbs. I am very eager to meet her but also willing to wait because of all the sleepless nights I have ahead of me. Coolidge is already very protective of her. I burned myself on my belly today and the first thing he asked was if the baby was ok. I can tell he is going to be very nurturing because he couldn't get enough of Maya's baby sister Lily. I will keep everyone posted about the pregnancy on my blog.

Recovery


Any Old Company had their last show on Saturday and now we are recovering from all the hard work that went into it. It was a great run. They had a wonderful turn out and most importantly an experience that will make their next show just that much better. I attended the opening and closing night. It was great to see the changes it went through and how two different each audience responded to the show. I want to thank all the people that came to see the show. We appreciate your support and hope you will come to see the next one.

Coolidge is growing like a weed. He is very excited about the idea of having a new baby sister. He kisses my belly daily and has felt the baby kick. He also tells me that he has a baby in his belly and his baby kicks also. We are planning on moving Coolidge to a toddler bed in April. We went shopping to see what bed would be best because we live in such a cramped space. He will soon have to share a bedroom with the baby so we need it to be small. I am excited and nervous about him having the freedom of getting in and out of bed. He just loved jumping into the bed and trying it out.

The pregnancy is going well. A little bit of back pain because my belly is growing and growing. This baby moves like crazy. I swear she moves more than Coolidge but maybe I have forgotten. I am currently in my sixth month and everything seems to be going according to plan. Coolidge just loves that I have a big belly and I think he will miss it when it is gone. Please pray that it will one day be gone. Ha ha ha.

Coolidge and I are taking a trip to see my best friend Aj and her family in Ohio. I am so excited to go see her. She has bought a new house and had a new baby girl that I have not been able to see. I am dying to see how she lives and get the kids all together.

I haven't been posting many photos so I am going to add some old photos that I have been meaning to share. These are some photos of when we took a trip to New Jersey to visit our friends. This is Nicholas, Belen, Coolidge and Catalina. This was in the fall and the weather was still pretty good so we were able to play in her big yard.


We have also had some snow this year. It wasn't nearly as much as last year but Coolidge just loved making snow angels and digging the car out. This is a photo of our last storm which I think was the biggest in a long time.
