despite all of the musical beds, I've been getting a decent amount of sleep, but the infection I've been dealing with, as well as this cold, is making for a bit of a miserable time - at least physically. Nonetheless, we've been having some great times with the boys. Last week we had our first snow - which Raf absolutely loved - and then today we had weather in the 60s and Raf was in shorts and a teeshirt running along the beach.
... I began this post last night!
Anyway, we finished up the long weekend with a lovely playdate with Raf's friend Rowan from his new school. He's a really sweet boy and he and Raf had such a fun two hours. They played on the playset and then the two train-crazy preschoolers spent some time upstairs playing with Raf's trains. There wasn't too much fighting over trains, and truthfully Rowan was so sweet and gracious when Raf wouldn't share his favorite trains and carriages that it made for an easy time. Both boys were so sad to have their play date broken up and they hid, giggling, under the blankets trying to hide from us. Rowan's mum, Anne, also came along and we had a lovely time watching the boys while having actual adults conversations.
This morning Charlie and I dropped off Raf at school and Charlie attended his first Chairs' meeting. It might have been his last one, too :)
Morning cuddles with Rafi and Charlie. Charlie already seems to be enamored with his older brother. He put his arm around Rafi while Raf was chatting to him and kissing him. The first snowy day and no power... so cuddles were really needed.
Raf LOVES the snow.
Snow day cuddles.
Every morning there is a new sleeping configuration but we always end up in one bed with the boys cuddling.
Then we had gym class. Raf is so happy to be back with Coach Dan!
Sunday hike... Charlie's first one. Raf's first time in a carrier in a LONG time. I think that he's feeling some 'being carried' envy.
Monday morning cuddles..
Monday morning at the beach with the dogs.
Play date fun!
