New napping style

Andrew this morning after an hour of being awake and after having had a little breakfast, put his head on the couch and passed out… just like this! Well, we had been sick here, Andrew has a cough and cold and mama and Massimo had a high fever with cough… How annoying, really. Andrew, after properly been put on the couch slept from 9 to noon! We shall be better soon! Thank you Melissa for helping out so much:)  Rolito has been amazing balancing work with taking care of us.

Questo e’ Andrew questa mattina, dopo un’ora che era sveglio e dopo aver fatto colazione, ha appoggiato la testa sul divano e dopo pochi secondi dormiva, anzi russava, cosi’ in piedi! Qui stiamo stati tutti male, a parte Roland, da mercoledi’, Andrew con la tosse ed il raffreddore, e Massimo e mamma con un febbrone da cavallo e tosse.  Dopo aver sistemato Andrew sul divano ha dormito dalle 9 fino a mezzoggiorno, e anche mamma e Massimo per fortuna.  Torneremo attivi presto appena stiamo meglio.

Domenica

Una domenica senza papa’, via per lavoro: colazione, lettura, ginnastica, pranzo per due, riposino, gioco all’aperto, passeggiata con Melissa, Jamal e Mahoni, gioco in casa, cena, bagnetto, nanna Massimo, libri e nanna Andrew… tutto e’ filato liscio ๐Ÿ™‚

Ultimo giorno d’inverno: e’ nevicato
Primo giorno di primavera: la neve e’ sparita e c’era una bella giornata di sole!

A Sunday with dad away for work: breakfast, some reading, workout, lunch for two, nap, outdoor play, walk with boys and dog with Melissa and Mahone, play indoor, dinner, bath time, bed time for Massimo, books and bed time for Andrew… all went well and smooth ๐Ÿ™‚ yeah

Last day of winter in Fairfield: we had snow (yes again!) This was a good thing ’cause Andrew wanted the snow back and he had a chance to play in the snow one more time ๐Ÿ™‚
First day of spring: snow was gone, we had sun and warm weather, absolutely perfect!

‘Throw that ball mama, I hit!’

… and the boy can hit! I had to run about 8 times down the road to catch the ball he sent flying across the road. This is mama and big boy special time of the day: base ball, soccer ball, or tennis … anything, as long as there is a ball ๐Ÿ™‚

‘Tira la palla mamma, io colpisco’ e certo la sa colpire la palla questo ragazzetto, sparandola per ben otto volte dall’altra parte della strada mandandomi di corsa a prenderla giu’ in fondo la via. Questi sono i momenti speciali di Andrew e mamma, quando giochiamo a baseball, a calcio o a tennis… qualsiasi cosa, basta che ci sia una palla ๐Ÿ™‚
