Alexander and Jordan
June 19 - July 8, 2006
Alexander: It has been such a long time since my
dad has updated our website and he wanted me to tell you that he apologizes.
Because mommy has been gone a lot for her piano competition, daddy has been very
busy. Then, when he was finally able to update it, his computer crashed
and it took a long time to get it going again. Enough of that...
Grandma and Grandpa Branzburg were here for the last week. They were here to help daddy while he was working in the hospital and to keep us company while mommy spent a lot of time working for the competition. They spent everyday with us - fed us, took us to the park, played baseball incessantly and spoiled us silly. It was a lot of fun to have them visit, and we were very sorry to see them go.
This past weekend we celebrated the birthday of our friends Kyle and Ethan. They turned 3yrs old and had a big party at their house. The coolest part was the castle that they rented. It was a giant two story moonwalk with a slide. We ate lots of food, including some cake of course, and ran until we almost collapsed.
Jordan: I am walking!! I started the week last week taking 2-3 steps at a time and ended the week taking up to 8 or 10 steps before I fell down. Watch out now because I am very mobile and I have no sense of fear.
I spend a lot of time especially with Grandpa while he was here. Everyday he would take me to the park to play. It was our special time together. He would spend time with Alexander playing baseball, so I got to go to the park.
