Millionaire monopoly—this was a gift from grandpa Bernie and Joseph LOVES it.  He is super into all things money so this chance to acquire millions is perfect.

Snoozing in the sun.  She used to sleep all the time on her boppy.  She would just lay there and pass out.  (I am aware this it totally “off label” use).  Now she is all grown up and usually naps in her crib .

Tons of the same pictures.  As you can see we get lots and lots and lots of use out of the play mat from “auntie” Jenn!!

Oh just another day snoozing in the sun.  I guess these pictures are kindof repetitive.

Nora truly is just gorgeous! And I think you have a very advanced, smart kiddo there. It's great that you have a baby group you can participate in. I miss going to playgroup like I did with Henri, but there's not really anything I can drag both of them to at this point. Is Joseph liking hockey any more now that he's stuck with it?

Thanks Meredith! There isn't any playgroup that would be good for both of your kiddos? Around here we have A LOT of playgroups--I used to facilitate some of them actually--and most are 0-school age. And hockey has it's ups and downs; he seems to have fun when he is there, but he dreads getting all the equipment on. Thanks for asking! I love, love following your family on your blog ;-)
