I now have a 1 year old and a 3 year old

Boy do I feel old! And busy! And tired!

But the kids are really starting to be able to play together. It is very cute to watch. They're not always nice to each other, of course. But I think they both appreciate having a playmate sometimes.

Will's birthday went well. We had 12 babies ranging from about 10 months to 18 months, not including Will. Leah helped me make Winnie the Pooh cupcakes, which were well received by all and especially loved by Will - his first cake!
We also served a nice spread of homemade banana bread and blueberry muffins, fresh fruit, OJ, coffee and tea. There were blowers, party hats, and balloons - just to set the festive mood.

Later in the day we went to Archie's birthday party - which both Leah and Will had a great time at.

Will has definitely been enjoying his birthday presents - a Little Tikes car, a driving toy, and a beanbag chair - plus some other little gifts from friends.

Since the big birthday the kids have been doing some swimming. Leah loves practicing swimming and is getting pretty good. Will has figured out that if he holds a swim noodle in front of him he can walk across the baby pool - he loves it - but of course I have to follow close behind in case he falls over.
I've had 3 days of dragon boat races. The AWA Globe Paddlers came in 5th in Deep Water Bay, 1st (winning all 3 of our races) in Stanley Warm Up, and 4th in Lamma. We're feeling pretty good. Leah came out for the first 2 race days and had a great time. Now I'm getting ready for the big Stanley International on June 6. Hopefully both kids can pop down and watch some races that day.
Will got another tooth a yesterday (May 16). He's up to 7 now, but he's still chewing on his hand and drooling quite a bit so I am sure there are others coming soon. This one is the on the bottom to the left of his center teeth.
