Happy 2nd Birthday, Harlan Joseph!

Time flies when you are having fun!  These past 2 years have FLOWN by!  Harlan, you are turning into such an amazing little boy.  You are a sweetheart of a son & a patient & loving little brother.  A few things about you as you turn 2:
- You love to say "What da heck?!?!"
- You call Emory "Emmy Vaughan" or "Emmy Joseph"
- You always ask "Where's Tistan?"  when we get home
- You are still a Momma's-Boy & I hope that never changes
- You enjoy being read to
- You are starting to make the same sily faces & noises as Emory does/did
- You call Daddy "Robert" often
- You pay more attention to Layla than anyone else does
- You talk, talk, talk, talk, talk from sun up to sun down
- You think it is funny when we put you in time out
- You like to jump on the sofa...hence the time outs!

Happy Birthday, Harlan Joseph.  You make our family fun & we would be lost without you.

Summer 2012 - The End

Well it was a whirlwind & it if officially over.  We are settled in nicely to our new home & you boys love it!  Cameron has a new neighborhood friend, just as we always hoped for him & Emory & Harlan have the same, but 10 times over!  We went to Wildwood, Dutch Wonderland & spent countless hours outside playing.  We stayed up late, we ate Kiwi Yogurt, we had picnics, we saw the Reading Phillies, we took some hikes.  We played in pools & creeks & rivers.  We explored the Franklin Institute, Cherry Crest Adventure Farm & the Garden State Discovery Museum.  We had countless playdates,we  rode on Power Wheels, climbed trees, caught crayfish, made art, climbed the steps of the Art Museum, saw the Eagles play & we went to Elmwood Zoo.  We played with water balloons & cars & "guys."  We had an amazing Summer.  I can't believe it is over, but I am so glad to have made so many wonderful memories with our sons.  Here is to the Fall & tons of new memories. 
Here is a link to our Tumblr where we posted some pics!
