Baby Reunion 2009


We missed the 2 year mark by a couple of months, but we managed to get together with 4 of the other couples that we met in childbirth class this weekend. Of the 9 couples that were in the class, 7 of us still keep in touch here and there, so it was great that 5 of us were able to come! We got together at Chautauqua Park in Boulder. It was a great morning!

Birthday fun

Last weekend, one of my very best friends Tristina came to visit to celebrate our 29th birthdays. We were both born on the same day, June 20th 1980. What are the odds?

We had a great four days, lounging by the pool, going shopping, eating on various patios around town. Somehow, and I have NO idea how this happened, but I managed to not get ANY pictures of Tris and Finn together. I did get a few fun shots of us, though.



And here's a couple of older pics of Tris and Finn that are my favorites. I'll definitely have to get more when she visits after the new baby is born!

Summer Lovin'


The weather has been so strange here this summer - it wasn't until the official first day of summer, June 21, that it really got HOT. We'd have mild temps and afternoon thunderstorms every day, which is *very* weird for dry Colorado. Also lots of random hail. Finn has heard thunder for the first time this month, and he does NOT like it! Almost every night now as we put him to bed, he says "no thunder, okay?" I love that he thinks we can control this!





We get outside as much as possible. Ever since we planted the flowers, Finn loves to help water them, and especially likes to wield the hose.

Funny faces

We got Finn a Mercer Mayer book about becoming a big brother. It explains all the things you can do for the new baby and one part talks about making funny faces. Ever since we started reading it, he's been the funny face master. The other day at breakfast, he was showing off:

The Dubs Have Moved [Back]

Well hello there! Welcome to our new (old) blog! These are our new, and hopefully permanent, digs. So what's the story on the new blog? Wellllllll, a couple of things have happened in this past year. #1 - Kym, the ever busy blog poster of the family has found it harder and harder to trudge to the upstairs loft (because I am lazy) where the desktop Mac lives to post a blog. Despite my best attempts to be a diligent blogger, it just doesn't happen as often as I'd like and it is a lot more convenient for me to post from my tried and true laptop. #2 - due to the upcoming addition to our family, we just didn't want to spend the money to renew the Mac blog, and felt it was time to go back to the old trusty (and free!) blogger account. The upside to this, of course, is that you can now peruse through Finn's first year of blog posts! The downside? The subsequent 16 months are gone :( So here is my compromise: Over the upcoming weeks, I will post the "best of month" entries with the best pics and videos from those 16 months that are unavailable to Finn's adoring viewing public. Deal? Deal!

Anyway, I guarantee that the posts will be more frequent and so that's the biggest upside of it all. Blogger doesn't let me cheat and post in the past, so I've gotta stay current. Also, I'm going to make Mike blog at least once every couple of months.

FAQ: What the heck is the name of the site all about?
Answer: Mike and I call ourselves Team Dub frequently...ya know, for the first letter of our last name....W....Double-U....Dubya.....Dub. So, we are 4 Dubs. Cute, right??? Haha, go with it!

So give us a shout on the comments, let us know you have followed us here. We are excited to continue to share our Wootton adventures with you!

Love, The Dubs
