A few of my favorite moments from the last week:

  • Jeffrey crawling into bed with us one cold morning, huddled between our knees like a sleeping puppy, with his blanket over his head.

  • The girls in their hammocks at the USS Constitution Museum

  • Beth and Eleanor "taking a nap" one afternoon (oh, the decibel level on the giggling!). I heard Beth get out of bed at one point, and when I went in to wake them up (they did finally fall asleep), Beth's doll Baby Margie was in the crib with Eleanor. I guess she decided her friend needed a doll to snuggle with.

  • Snuggling sweet baby William

  • Rub-a-dub dub, three kids in a tub
  • The "We did it!" moment when Brooke and I got to the Children's Museum on the T. I've already written about this, but wow! were we impressed with our cool streetwise urban mommy selves.

  • Bethie and Eleanor giving each other hugs, over and over, and falling down almost every time.

  • Discovering the Danish Pastry House with Brooke ('cause I never would have gone in by myself). Cream-filled marzipan frogs...yum.

  • Radio Jeffrey: all talk, all the time.

  • The morning our friends left, when Scott was pushing the trundle under Beth's bed, and she wailed, "Where's Jeffrey going to sleep?"

  • The chaos of the playroom

  • The Swiffer Brigade, in their newspaper hats!

Oh, I just love all the pictures and Boston stories. The kids on the stroller is classic. How exactly is Eleanor not falling over?? And of course I love and miss the mean bean and enjoy all tales that involve the T. Well, most people don't call it the mean bean, but after grocery shopping there for the first time, it seemed to fit :)

And I too want to see this new short hairdo you speak of.
