Thomas is about 1-2 inches taller than william. I think they will be taller than Larry, if not both thomas for sure
We met Victoria and Alberto up in Milford, CT for the day on Monday. Her parents have a house on the north side of the Long Island Sound. The water is perfect for little bodies just getting used to the idea of water. The boys loved it and thought the sand was quite tasty. We had a great time and as always it is great to see our friends. Hopefully we will make a trip up to Portland this winter.
As Kate desperately tries to sleep crammed between two car seats, we found the opportunity to take a picture

As I entered my daily breakfast routine with the babies I looked at their vitamins. I am so pissed that I had let this slip. Anyway, why do we get fluoride? Do we really need it? And, should we (I) be giving it to my babies or any of us for that matter without knowing all of this. Ok, so I don't know if you can read the label. there is no allotted percentage for infants on fluoride, hence the * and the * means, U.S.Recommended Daily Allowance has NOT been established!!!!!!!!!! WTF Do we blindly, WILLINGLY inject poisons into our bodies because our government says so. I think i am as heated about this subject as I am about vaccines. Looks like I have some serious research to do before we continue to take fluoride infused vitamins.

Every year the local YMCA sponsors a Taste of (fill in town). In this case it was Pearl River. Of course my family showed up 20 strong. We had a great time doing a mini bar/restaurant crawl in town. I think we might be the only people to ever play Charades in the Pearl River Hotel. Having a stage was key and being able to embarrass my youthful cousins was great. It is amazing how the older you get the more you understand about what is important in life. Having a family where all of my cousins are on speed dial is important to me.
We stopped at Larry's Uncle Robert and Aunt Paula's house while we were on the Cape. they were excited to meet the babies for the first time.
We took the babies to the pond by aunt megs house. colinand kate decided to go on the boat with uncle vinny this day. the babies loved it because it was so shallow and they could sit and splash around
