We did a long weekend in Hilton Head in May which was a great time, but exhausting! We took a chance and pricelined a hotel - we got the Marriott for a steal, but sleeping in the same room with Tate was rough. He went to bed fine and the three of us were able to watch a little movie at night, but he did not do well in the pack and play so sleep was an issue for all. That said, we did enjoy playing on the beach and relaxing a bit in the sun.

We had a bit of a rough start to Easter. Tate went through a phase of getting in Chester's face and scaring him and one evening Chester bit his lip. It was horrible, but we took him to a pediatric urgent care and he was such a trooper. He had to get stitches and didn't even need to be sedated, he is such a calm and collected kid. It's now been a few months and there is just minimal scarring so he's doing okay. And we've learned to be vigilant about separating the dog from him, although everyone seems to have figured each other out. I'll tell you, having that happen was gut-wrenching but I'm glad things are going well and we were able to keep Chestery.
I am wayyyy behind on blogging. I just never seem to upload my pictures from my phone and have gotten a little lazy. We had a busy winter, just doing stuff around Atlanta and enjoying the mild weather.
Enjoying President's Day off with mom.
Warm weather for Papa Don's visit!
Meeting Baby Luke
Taking a picture in bed. We went through a rough patch of Declan getting us up at night. We ended up moving Tate into his room a few months ago to give him some company/comfort and it's going pretty well.
We went in with Don's parents on a rock climbing wall for Christmas for the boys. We've been debating whether to get a swing set or a trampoline or something like that for awhile. We have a large lot but the majority of it is wooded so we only have a small flat area in the backyard. We found this "mountain" and it has been a hit. Declan constantly climbs on it, plays in the middle and jumps from it. It was perfect!
We traveled to MN for Christmas and stayed with Don's parents along with his sister and her boyfriend. It was a great 4 days, despite some rough nights with Tate - we did a lot of relaxing, eating, drinking and laughing. Unfortunately there was hardly any snow, but we did get the boys out on the lake down the street.
