Rockies Game Fun

Every year, Mike's alma mater hosts a BBQ and Rockies game for alumni, a nice treat for all of us!  This was the first time we brought the kiddos, and they had an awesome time!

It's ice cream time! 

I'm not sure who won the game, but we sure had a blast and the boys were on a sugar high for several hours after far too much ice cream, popcorn, and cookies!

Nearly 3

Oh, Will.  If you only knew how often your dad and I look at each other and shake our heads, astounded by you.  We've had to come up with all new words to describe you, like cute-plosion.  For so long, you were fiercely independent and not too fond of pausing for affection.  In the last several months, all of that has changed. You beg for hugs, kisses, high fives, and snuggles.  Lately you've been saying "Mommy and are my best friends."

You want to do everything that your brother does, no exceptions. You are right beside him practicing every sport, playing with every tricky toy and puzzle, singing every song, attending every impromptu dance party.  

Your favorite game is basketball, your favorite food is noodles and chocolate milk, you love fruits and green beans, you are an amazing block stacker, and you are crazy about playing on the iPhone.

One of your favorite thing to do is sleep in Finn's room, but thankfully you are a champion sleeper just like your brother.  You still love the blanket your Auntie J knitted you for your 1st birthday, and you love doggy stuffed animals.  

We love you, our sweet and beautiful guy. Thanks for being such a perfect member of of the Dub family.

We can't believe how totally sweet these kiddos are with each other. They do everything together, and Finn takes his role as big brother very seriously.  Of course, every moment isn't magical, but for the most part they get along really, really well and have SO much fun together.

Soccer Season Begins!

Mike and I both played soccer when we were kids, so it was only a matter of time before we urged Finn into that direction.  We were so happy when he enthusiastically wanted to play, and he has been SO much fun to watch play.  He has a ton of fun, and is learning the game quickly.  The thing I like about soccer is that there is a lot of cheering each other on, which wasn't the case with tee-ball.

Stay tuned for videos of our little soccer star!
