Tati Is Back!

Hi Everyone! Tatiana here. I'm baaaaack! Mom has been super, super busy again with this thing she calls work. But she wants you to know that she's over the hump and should be sliding back into a normal life!

The weather is getting better up here, so I have been swimming more in the pool and trying to take advantage of some of the good summertime outdoors. This weekend we went to my Great Aunt Barb's house on the west side of the state of Michigan (pretty good at this geography stuff for a 2 1/2 year old huh?) for a family reunion. Great Aunt Barb is my Grampa's sister. She's pretty funny and my mom has always really liked her. Even better she's got 3 grandsons who were really fun to play with and if THAT wasn't enough.... Grampa's side of the family is Catholic so there were TONS of 2nd cousins to play with!!

Speaking of Grampa and Gramma - they were in ton for the reunion too, and it's always great when I get to see them. I perfected my newest language skill "grampa, I want... ______". I might just be testing to see what I can get away with later, but mom was super impressed with my sentences.

This reunion thing was on a lake and Great Aunt Barb even had a boat for me to ride on. I wasn't 100% sure what to think of this fast tin thing that floats on water, but I had fun. The only downside was that this was my FIRST trip sleeping away from home OR gramma's house. I was kinda crabby when it was time to sleep, so my mama didn't get very much sleep that night! Sorry mama!!

Here's my pictures from last weekend's fun. I promise my mom or I won't wait so long to post again next time. Mom had a video of me singing "Rain rain go away" but for some reason every time she tries to upload it - it deletes everything, so she just gave up!!

Yay! So glad you are back! I was just telling Jason that it has been a long time since you posted. Have you tried posting the video to youtube? I hope you can get it loaded, because I would love to see you in action :)

Nice to be back on a schedule, huh? Adults and kids kinda both crave that, huh?
T looks so tiny in that big vest. Great pictures, though of a beautiful fun-filled weekend!

I was wondering where you were! So glad you are back and hope things can slow down a little?

Tati is as cute as ever!

I bet you were equally exhausted! It sounds like she had a great time. I girl should always know how to get what she wants.

Amy--She is so adorable--one pic is cuter than the next. I can see she really loves the water. Also impressed that she sleeps in car seat--Nikolay doesn't like the carseat. I am hoping that it just takes time for him to get used to it! Cindy

Hey, Tati!
Glad to have you and momma back! It looks like you're having such a fun time enjoying the summer--I love the pictures at the beach!

Hey Amy! I am finding it more and more difficult to get on my favorite blogs these days. Time is so precious. T is so darn cute!
