the help went home...

and we are still managing to survive...barely.

My parents came for a few days to help out with the new baby. They cooked and cleaned, let me sleep, and most importantly...entertained a very active 19 month old.

They took Jack to the splash park.

They went on a hike to see the wild flowers and to bury a secret time capsule treasure.

Look closely...our house is down below!

They took morning baths together. SIDENOTE: If hairy, grown men over 60 in the bathtub bother you, then avert your eyes. I did get permission to blog this photo.

Now that they're gone, things are slowly returning to normal. Jack loves to steamroll over lucy. He is showing some signs of jealousy. He climbs on top of lucy while I am feeding her. He still kisses her A LOT and likes to test out her binky.

Jack is reverting back to his baby days. He likes to test out her bassinet, bouncer, and swing. Here he is in the swing mischievously waiting for someone to reprimand him. When his act goes unnoticed....well....

...he just makes himself comfortable.


important thing is...we are still alive!

Ali! Move by me! I love your kids and they don't even know me¡ I am so happy for you! I just commented on your first Lucy entry cause I didn't even know she was here yet--she is so beautiful Al! Jack looks so much like Troy in the swing! I'll call to see how you're holding up--we're just surviving here after SEVEN weeks!

those pictures are awesome (well, maybe not ALL of them! :) ).

You guys seem like you're doing great, and jack is just as happy as ever! I'm so glad he had fun with g'ma and g'pa.

Oh boy with the Degraff family (or shall I say Session Family) the adventure never ends. You have great parents.

Love the bath photo!! It's so spring at your house. My favorite is the one on the grassy hill. Time capsule is such a cute idea.

I'ts 1:00am and I'm in my kitchen alone laughing my head off! SO funny! For some odd reason your dad reminds me of a Dr. Suess illustration. I can't believe you got permission even! So funny! I know I already said that. I've still got 4 weeks of help left. WOW!
