What we've been up to

Shame on me for not updating the blog in almost over a month!

Mimi and Grampy visited and we had lots of fun!  We went to Greenfield Village - the train was a huge hit.  We definitely need to go back and are contemplating an annual pass.

Conor and I have been having lots of fun together on Mondays, my day off.  A few weeks ago, we went to Domino's Farms, which of course he loved.

Tim is working long hours coaching after school this fall and winter, so some nights it's just Conor and I for dinner.  Last week we went out for a special date.

We had our family photos done in Ann Arbor by Melissa Palomo.  Love them - will share when I get them downloaded and organized.

Conor is really growing up fast.  He says the funniest things that make him sound like such a big kid.  The other morning, on the way home from swimming, we saw a man walking two dogs.  Conor said, "Hi dogs!  I'm Conor.  Pleased to meet you."

No progress on the potty training front, not that we're really even trying.  He will sit on the potty when prompted, but hasn't actually gone in quite some time.  For now we'll just keep offering and see what happens.  I don't get the sense that he's really ready and I think we'd be in for a lot of frustration if we tried to force it.  He does love watching "Elmo's Potty Time" so maybe he's getting curious.


  1. He does sound and look like such a big boy! Love that top picture (well, I love all of them but that one especially!)

  2. Beautiful photos of our precious little guy! Love to hear the things Conor says ~ so cute! We had so much fun on our visit, we should put Domino's Farms on the list for our next visit! We miss you guys!!!! Happy Halloween to the world's cutest Superman!
