Making our way out of the House

First, I just have to say that the Northcutt family is SO enjoying all the meals people have been bringing us!!! I look forward to the days that we have dinners! I’ve posted a couple new recipes on my blog… baked spaghetti, chicken enchiladas, and I’ve updated my banana bread recipe.

Two more boys in our little playgroup turned 2 – these boys are getting so big!!! What started as 3 friends starting a playgroup when 2 of us had infants and 1 of us was still pregnant has grown into 8 wild toddler boys! Porter and Chapman each had birthdays and we celebrated at each of their houses.

Now, with Reid, we really didn’t get him out until he was about 5 weeks (well, and plus it took that long for me to heal so I really couldn’t get out), but I’ve gotten Jace out quite a bit! I hope 2nd children have stronger immune systems!!! Gymnastics, the playgroup birthday parties, seeing friends, and going to lunch- I’m determined not to get cooped up in the house!!

Porter’s Birthday party: Jace was a week and a half old, but my mom kept him at the house and I took Reid. It worked out great for our first outing because Amy and I live in the same neighborhood. I didn’t take any pictures of all the boys playing but they had a BLAST!!

So glad that you're getting out already! I think 2nd kids have to have stronger immune systems and be more flexible...they just don't really get a choice :) I love that pic of you and Reid!!
