The Arace Children

A blog for the smallest members of our family.

First Playground with Mommy and Ava

Daddy is back at work this week, so Mommy is on her own with the two of us. She decided to brave the potential rain and take us to a playground first thing in the morning (we were out the door by 8:30!). With sleeping Ava in the Ergo, Mommy said it was almost like old times and I was a very good boy and didn't put up a fight when Mommy said it was time to go.

After, we went to the library and checked out some books. Fun first outing Mommy!

Arace 2.0 Due today

Much like Baby Arace 2.0 is taking her sweet time to make her grand entrance, we've been taking our time gathering our photos from the past couple of weeks. Don't miss these posts that have been posted on the day they happened, but have been pushed off the front page or jumbled in the mix...

Enzo's Ikea Patterns

Bread Dough Making

Boys in Primary Colors

6 boys... for now!

Tonight we're having a big dinner with the D'Italia's and the Koerner boys all together! There are six boys: Tyler, Liam, Ollie, Enzo, Charlie, and Rocco. This morning Mommy made 6 finger puppet snakes, with 6 sketchbooks and activities to keep us all busy at the nice restaurant. 

Grammy Bev (Ollie and Charlie's Grandmother) and Brian also came to eat with us at Temazcal. Here we are enjoying our meal (we were very good, even though we look a little crazy in this photo - we were trying to see a giant ship in the harbor going by the restaurant)...

The next trip when we all get together, we'll be 6 boys and 1 girl! 

Lunch Date with Mommy

I was very tired, but Mommy needed to feed her baby belly, so I took her to lunch. Luckily, we got a nice booth seat and I took a rest while Mommy shoveled some food in.

Sharing with Baby Arace 2.0

Enzo let the baby "wear" his funny necklace....

First Baseball Bat

Mommy had a surprise for me when she picked me up from school today. My first baseball bat!

She obviously has no idea what she's doing when it comes to sports because she should have gotten me a t-ball set so I actually had a chance to hit a ball. I did the best with what I had to work with (Mommy isn't a great pitcher either) and managed to hit the ball once!! Mommy was impressed.



Baby Arace 2.0 Escape Attempt

She's been doing her best to try and break out today...

(maybe it's the jailbird stripes?)

Lots of movement and a fair amount of uncomfortable, yet irregular contractions. It's her April Fool's Day Joke on Mommy - "Here I come! Just kidding!!!!"

Easter Crafts

Origami bunnies!


Ollie and Charlie's Mommy Rebecca sent Mommy a funny card in Dutch with pickles on it. Zwanger means pregnant in Dutch and both Rebecca and Mommy think this word is pretty funny. Here I am saying hi to my baby sister and trying to hold up Mommy's zwanger belly...

Mommy thinks it's funny that I really braced myself and took a nice wide stance to hold up her giant belly!

Here is a countdown timer for Baby Arace 2.0's due date. (there is also a link on the right of the blog for easy access)

Date Night with Mommy

Daddy had to work late tonight, so I went to dinner with Mommy at Legal Sea Foods.

That sat us right next to the giant fish tank and I ordered the fish sticks.

I was pretty good for Mommy and was very proud of myself. I told her, "Look! I ate all of my bread!"
