New things

Things are changing here in the LaBombard household. The biggest change is that Eva started preschool a couple weeks ago. Man, seriously? It seems like yesterday we were timidly driving her home from the birth center. I've been going through a lot if the kids clothes an finally letting go of them. Why have I been saving all this stuff?? I don't know. All that to say, she's growing She's such a beautiful little girl and I feel blessed to be her Mommy. Her heart is so sweet and she brings such joy (when she's not exploring her, ah hum, independence).

Little Eddie V has been cruising down big boy lane. We brought Ed's old horse upstairs, you know, the kind with the springs. Man oh man does Eddie V LOVE that thing. At first we held him and he kind of sat there. Now, oh my, he rivals Eva for top speed. His smile, while riding, is the cutest thing I've ever seen. He can practically climb up himself but not quite yet. That aspect of his riding keeps some of his little boyness in tack. He's only 16 months old but when he's riding he looks at least two years old. Sniff. He is incredibly sweet and he easily melts my heart when he comes over and just flops on me with a huge, charming smile. What a joy.

The kids are starting to interact a little more when they play and that's really fun to see. The more words Eddie V gets under his belt, the more fun they have. Right now he mostly knows words that start with B, bubbles, baby, bath, ball, etc. We were out hitting up some yard sales a couple weekends ago and there was a little girl blowing bubbles. Eddie V pointed at her and just out of the blue said 'bubble'. We got pretty excited so for the rest of the day he kept saying bubble over and over...reeeeeaallly cute! I can't wait for his little personality to continue to emerge and to see the relationship between the two kids continue to grow and change.

What a blessed life I lead! :)


  1. Yay! A new blog post! I miss you guys soooo much!! I can't believe that Eddie V is building a vocabulary already. I think you and Eddie IV make some really smart kids! I also can't believe Eva is big enough to go to pre-school. Boo. She's growing up too fast for Auntie Manda. Once again I miss you guys! Love you so much! I can't wait to see you soon. :)
