Happy Half Birthday!

As many of you know, I am a fan of half birthdays while Coy thinks that they are a ridiculous attempt to garner more presents and attention than one deserves in the span of a year. But even a party pooper would have to agree that this is a half birthday worth celebrating. Townes is 6-months old today! There's so much I should describe here- how much he's grown and changed, the range of emotions we've felt as we've learned the ropes of parenthood, all our hopes for him.

But it's late here and the boy may be older but he's still not the best sleeper. So here's some pictures instead:


























Townes has been having a lot of fun with his grandparents this week. My mom arrived a few weeks ago to take over the babysitting duties. Here's a picture of the happy trio after their trip to the zoo yesterday:

June already?

Sorry about the lack of blogging from our end. It's been a very busy month. A Buckley update is certainly in order.
So I've been back at school. Our niece Alysson moved in for the month of May to take care of Townes. And my mom just arrived this Saturday to take over the task for June. Townes has been learning so much- his awareness of the world around him has exploded. He holds things, he laughs like crazy, he likes to watch all modes of transportation as they zoom past.
In the meantime, Coy has been working Monday to Friday in London for about 4 weeks now. He accepted a rotation there that will last until the end of September. I'm sure we'll remember why that was such a great decision once the boy and I have moved there when school wraps up in a few weeks. For now, we just miss him.
So yes, these pictures are for any of you out there who still bother to check in on VivaPierre but they're also for a doting father who is able to make his son laugh harder than anyone.

Here we are with Alysson, the Wonder Nanny (not to be confused with my mom, the Grandnanny):
