Father's Day Weekend

This was a whirlwind weekend for our little family. Pop Pop Fish (my dad) was visiting on Wednesday and Thursday. It was a short visit, but I was happy he had a chance to meet his new granddaughter and at this point, we don't do a whole lot except nurse and nap :). He left Friday morning. That night Norrin had his end of the year performance. They sang This Land is My Land and Under One Sky. He did a really good job and was just so stinking cute. I'm having a hard time downloading the video on the blog, so we'll have to settle for pictures for now. He was given a certificate because as of today he officially moved up to preschool. I gave him some playdough, took him to Friendly's then to a playground. It was a great day for him and an exhausting one for me. Ani slept through most of the adventures, then gave me a hard time when we got home :). On Saturday, we went to our nephew, Jack's, birthday party. Norrin loves playing with his cousins and gave us a hard time when it was time to go. To quote him directly, "I'll leave now, but I don't love you anymore and I'm going to live like a mean boy". As I've said before you can totally gauge how much fun he's had by how much he hates us when its time to go :). On Father's Day, we went out to breakfast, visited Pop pop Joseph in the hospital and went to the playground. Once again, Ani slept straight through everything. When we got home, I entertained both kids while Todd took a nap. Then, when Ani and I went up for a nap by some miracle, Norrin fell asleep on the couch at 6:30. Todd carried him to bed, I made a late dinner, we watched a movie and it was a very peaceful ending to his special day. Ani stayed up for most of that time, but she was so pleasant and then she was asleep by 9:30. It was a good weekend. And as of today, Norrin started preschool and Ani is exactly 2 months old. Time is just flying by with these two wild and crazy kids.

Norrin sitting with his classmates. He was looking all over for me and was so happy when Miss Erin showed him where I was standing.

His graduation certificate. He's so proud to be a big boy going to preschool.

The calm, sweet little boy I came home with after a full day of adventures :).

Norrin passed out in the car about 15 minutes before we got to Uncle Steve's house.
