The Clifford's are officially uncool...we bought a minivan over the weekend. It was an inevitable purchase that we tried to fight, but we were starting to outgrow our cars. It is a nice minivan, but that doesn't do much to assuage the loss of our youth.
Matt took the week off of work and we spent some time at Nonni and Grandad's house. It was nice to have the extra help around and to play with all the fun things at their house. We took the kids into the pool for their first swim. It was quite an adventure. Sam really enjoyed it, which now has Matt dreaming of an Olympic swimmer. The girls didn't take to it the first day, but they liked it a lot better the second time around.
Sam is now a blabber mouth, talking to his hand, various inanimate objects, and when he wakes up in the morning. Peyton went a long time without talking, but she's found her voice again and is a big talker, too. Adah is trying to get over a cold that she probably picked up at Uncle Bryan's wedding.
Matt had talked to a lot of dads who were looking forward to a game of golf or some time on the couch. He decided against that and wanted to spend some extra time with the babies, although he lobbied against changing diapers successfully.
We put a new album on the website. Check it out here. Now that they're older, we'll try to update the photos monthly, so stay tuned.
