March 2016

March 2016

March was chock full this year.  James Robert's birthday and our trip to Charlotte kicked-off the month.  James Robert also learned to use the big boy swing- an accomplishment he is so very proud of.  Mat traveled to NJ and India for a large chunk of the middle of the month.  The end of the month proved to be just as busy.  We celebrated Easter and took a quick trip to Seattle all within a couple of days.  And from the pictures you can tell that baby boy #2 grew enormously throughout the month.  Whew!  I'm exhausted just thinking about March and all that happened- a memorable month indeed!

Easter 2016

We celebrated Easter in Oakville this year.  James Robert was delighted that the Easter bunny visited him with lots of Jelly Beans (his favorite flavor continues to be butter popcorn).  After celebrating at our Church, we enjoyed a brunch at home and then quickly packed to leave for Seattle in the evening.  

Here are some pictures we snapped of the day; is there anything cuter than a bow tie on a little boy?

Trip back to Charlotte!

At the beginning of March, we returned to Charlotte for the first time since moving away and enjoyed a wonderful trip.  It was so good to be back with family and friends and familiar places.

James Robert celebrated his birthday all week, starting with a celebration at Meme and Pops house where he was reunited with his best buddy, Harry!

On his birthday, we took  him on a train ride into uptown Charlotte and at his request we ate at chik-fil-a where he enjoyed his first ice cream cone. I think that was a highlight of his trip! 

Mat and I stole away to Charleston for a day trip and enjoyed every minute of the glorious sunshine- I also hit the 24 week mark of this pregnancy! 

We had the best time with Grandma and Grandpa and James Robert was over the moon with all the attention! 

We were able to catch up with lots of friends, welcome new babies and revisit our old favorite places.  More about James Robert's train birthday party is here.
