Week 22 (May 28 – June 3)

52 Weeks :: Week 22

22.3: Ice Break
Mallory took her last ice skating lesson for this session today. She really has come a long way… she can now glide straight, move her skates in and out to move forward (“swizzle”?), hop (notice her skates are off of the ice in the picture above), pick one foot up, and move backwards. She is now taking a little break from ice skating and we hope to get her back into gymnastics, since she has been asking to do it again.

52 Weeks :: Week 22

22.3: Mr. Brian’s Girls
We are so so sad to find out that Brian and Angie are most likely moving (the if, when and where TBD). They are our family-away-from-family here in Texas and have played the part of Uncle and Aunt to the girls. Until they do move, we will take any hanging out time with them that we can get. Mr. Brian came over tonight for dinner (Angie was out of town) and the girls, as always, loved playing with him (this Curious George puzzle being the main attraction).

52 Weeks :: Week 22

22.3: Tiny TV
Our big family room TV is still out of commission (has been since April 8), despite the Samsung repair man coming to the house to fix it three times without any luck. Last week we finally thought to move a little TV into the family room, so we could watch/listen to some TV at least in the family room. And now, wouldn’t you know it… the little TV started to malfunction today. The color is all wonky.

52 Weeks :: Week 22 [14 weeks old]

22.4: Tessa at 14 weeks

  • she’s figuring out that she has hands and that they can grab things, if she tries hard enough. She’s not really grabbing things yet, but she’ll occasionally move her arms/hands to touch something of interest near her.
  • she is entertained by watching the activity bar on her bouncy seat (it has lights, music and moving colorful bits). she can get a big smile on her face when sitting in the seat.
  • she’s sleeping more in her bassinet, both at night and during the day.
  • she seems to always smile at the picture of the baby and mom on the wipes box when she’s getting her diaper changed (the box is situated by her head on the changing table).

52 Weeks :: Week 22

22.6: Sharing
Chelsea loves her baby sister so much that she does not mind sharing her favorite things with her: brown bear and bear’s blanket. Tessa isn’t interested much, yet.

Creative Space Update :: Finished

22.6: Finished
Last spring, Lucia started to update her creative space (AKA the window-less media room) to make it prettier. She finally finished the update and took pictures of the finished (for now) space.

More pictures here.

  1. Lucia – I have to break the bad news to you about your TV. We have the exact same TV, and ours was “fixed” several times. I lived w/ an old 19″ for a few months until we bit the bullet and bought a new, cheaper plasma. We spent a damn FORTUNE on the Samsung when we bought it, but now the plasmas are a fraction of the price of the DLPs.

    SO SORRY! I feel your TV pain!
