Best Friends

I don't suspect times will always be so peaceful, but for now these two kids get along famously.  I have been worried about the age gap between them since before Mallory was conceived, but it has actually been great.

Mallory has become quite a busy toddler.  I can't remember anything that Spencer ever climbed, but put a mountain in front of Mallory and she will make it look like a mole hill.  Today she climbed on the kitchen table and was standing in the middle of it in a matter of seconds.  Then the coffee table.  Then to the top of our large playground while I turned my back for about 10 seconds.  If I had a 3 year old to deal with all day too, I'm not sure if I could handle it!  So in that regard, the age gap has been fabulous.  I was able to spend tons of time with Spencer before Mallory arrived, and now I get to spend tons of time with Mallory while Spencer is in school. 

I hope to be back in the next day or too with some of the crafty things I've been up to.........until then I will leave you with a picture of Mallory talking to the birds at the zoo............

and Spencer posing with his wax Florida Panther in front of the Manatees (excuse his drowned rat look - he went on the log flume twice!)


  1. Fabulous post!
    Tell Spencer he is a very handsome drowned rat! Miss Mallory is something else with all her climbing, (I don't remember any you being such climbers), and very cute.

  2. Thanks for your comment on my blog!
    Love the idea of collecting some used Christmas books all year round to add them to the calendar in December ... Unfortunately we rarely have garage sales and there are almost no thrift stores. :-/ But sometimes the library sells older books .... and we also have flea markets once in a while. If there is a certain title I would like I also check ebay.
    Have a great day
