It’s Been A Hard Vacation

The blog title is a direct quote from Wade this evening. He’s spent the day working on a new shed. Our old rubbermaid shed finally collapsed. We’ve been storing everything in the garage, but that only works until winter when my car needs a home. Wade spent the day buying supplies and framing the shed:…

He Sleeps, We All Sleep

I know I am going to regret writing this post, but here goes. Alex is an awesome sleeper. At 16 months old he is still taking two naps a day. The morning nap is usually 2 hours long and the afternoon nap is between 1.5-2.5 hours long. He doesn’t quite sleep 12 hours at night…
