Oh the things you'll do for a sister!

This is Andrew and the soon to be Mrs. Topel.

My big sister is getting married in, lets see...

wedding ticker

21 days!

I'm flying to Florida in a week and a half.

Of course i'm excited to see my family and friends. But there is a down side... Geoff and Elijah will be staying behind! "sniff sniff" It'll be just me and Ethan, who is a little attached to me at the moment, flying over for two weeks.

Two weeks with out my little boy! Fourteen days with out kissing him goodnight or snuggling with him when he wakes up.

That's it... I'm sending Rachel instead! Don't try and stop me. I've made up my mind!

Tell me, how can I leave my curly haired, flower bearing three year old behind!?

I'll do it for you, Crystal.

In other news...

Our four month old Ethan rolled over from his back to his tummy on Thursday!

I was vacuuming the house and he was laying on the living room floor on his back. When i finished the rest of the house and came back he was playing on his tummy! He's done it a few times since then and Elijah is a great encourager yelling "Good job, baby Effan! Good job!"


Rachel is back from visiting the family in Scotland. The boys were happy to see her when she came back! I was too!
I'm hoping she'll write a post about her trip. I want you all to "meet" the family in Scotland. Geoff's sister Alison, her husband Gavin, and our 4 nephews and 1 niece.

Elijah's friend William came over yesterday. They had a gret time playing out back. Chasing bubbles and racing cars. Chasing bubbles is so much more fun when you have a friend with you!

I'm off to do some much needed grocery shopping today!

Good job ETHAN. Melissa we will miss you, but don't worry we will look after Elijah.

Kristen said...

good luck with leaving Elijah behind! I'm leaving in 7 days and will be gone for a week but I'm leaving both boys behind.... I'm getting nervous!

That is such a hard thing....

On another note, we can't wait to get our hands on Ethan! Oh, my! Rachel is especially a baby lover - watch out for her! She will want to have him the whole time! I need to work on her "sharing" skills...

Still, how we wish we could see you all - Kyle will be so sad to not see Elijah!

Oh, I'm so excited you're coming! But we are going to miss Big E so much! I promise to distract you to the best of my ability when I'm down there!

1) i love your new blog design!

2) I hope you have a blast in Florida! We just might be in Naples that same week...

3) I can only imagine how hard it will be without Elijah :( hopefully you'll have awesome one-on-one time with little E that you couldn't have otherwise

I love that Elijah encourages "Effan" like that :-) Hopefully you'll be so busy enjoying family and friends that the two weeks will fly by for you and you'll be back together with all your boys before you know it.

Hi, Melissa! I think the first picture in this post ... the one of Elijah with the purple flowers ... is absolutely STUNNING. Fantabulous! :-)
