Colors & Tummy Time

Alexandra has started the phase where she has to be the one that picks out her outfits. She is also learning her colors so most of the days she thinks she has to wear the same color from head to toe because they "match". This day her shoes were even this turquoise color. I'm not a fashion queen by any means but I don't think the same color all over is whats trendy!!

Johnny's favorite way to be is on his belly right now. I have also uploaded a video of him on his belly, smiling, talking and trying to grab at some toys. He has started trying to reach for toys. He has to concentrate really hard and it is more luck than skill right now but its cute. Everything is just as exciting and cute with the second kid as it was with the first.

Unfortunately our camera just broke so it will probably be a bit before I post some new pictures but I will make sure to keep uploading the videos until then.

Rolling Over

My Sous Chef!

My Johnnycakes!

Hi! I have added two new videos. Johnny has mastered rolling from his belly to his back. It takes him a few grunts but he can do it. So of course I had to get it on video one day. Well, now if Johnny gets videotaped or photographed I must do the same to Alex. She makes sure I don't forget her. This day she had to do exactly what Johnny was doing on video. So although she mastered rolling over two years ago she had to show me how good she can still do it now! She cannot be outdone by her brother!

Birthdays, Baptism, Anniversary, and lots of Marco Fam time

Hi! Alexandra, Johnny and I just got back yesterday from spending two weeks in Wisconsin with all of my family. We had a great time up there which included celebrating Donovan's baptism, my 32nd birthday and Jaelynn's 2nd birthday. I was sad to leave but managed not to cry for once since I know I will see a portion of my family in a couple of months for Johnny's baptism.

I have added an album of my favorite photos from the month of April. There are also three new videos. The video of Johnny is just some footage of him doing tummy time. There are two videos of Alex and JJ together. In one they are playing Mommy and Baby. If you can understand JJ when she is playing Mommy she is saying oh so politely "LAY DOWN". In the other video I had them both say all the names in our family to try to showcase their personalities. As you will hear Alex is very soft spoken while JJ is very loud. She is a riot.

Both kids are doing good. Johnny is now 3 months old and is continuing to grow like crazy. I have always wondered where Alex and now Johnny have gotten their height. Nick finally tells me last night that the men on his Dad's side of the family are very tall, over 6 feet. We have discussed the height of our kids over and over and he never mentioned this before, men!:):) Johnny is still a very, very smiley baby and has started to coo all the time. Alexandra is still a very busy two year old, talking more and more everyday.

It was our 3 year anniversary this past Wednesday. I obviously was in Wisconsin and spent it with Michelle with dinner and a movie. Nick, who has been traveling constantly lately, was in Philadelphia and had dinner with some co-workers. Now that we are both home we are going to celebrate next weekend. I can hardly believe we have been married three years. We wasted no time growing our family!!
