  • Hello! I hope Lukas and Ava, Lilly and Molly, Everett and everyone else all had a wonderful end of 2010!

    It's been awhile since I checked in. Just a couple of weeks ago I FINALLY sat down at the computer and spent 7 HOURS uploading all of the photos on my camera to my computer and to facebook. MAN! I stopped keeping up with it sometime around February and after I fell behind I didn't have the motivation to catch up! It took my phone-which stores over 1000 photos-to fill up to force me to get back on the ball.

    Xmas was fun with Mialee, she's getting so big! And I mean that relatively of course, considering she is so small for her size! She'll be 2 and a half on January 19th and her cousin who is 9 months her junior is taller than her! My little shorty!

    Potty training is sporatic, and usually only if we ask her.
    But her vocabulary is blowing me away! She carries fully length conversations with my wife and I, and says some of the funnies stuff! The other day she came home from the sitters with the word "stupid"... so after spending 2 minutes in Time Out and a talking to about that word... a week later out of the blue she looks up at me and says; "I won't say stupid daddy. I wont." LOL! Melts my heart! Last night we went out to eat dinner and during the car ride she had two laugh out loud moments. From noticing the Xmas display gone and saying; "Christmas is over mommy, Christmas is over." to responding to our question of whether or not she is excited to go eat at a restaurant she replied with great enthusiasm, "I'm EXCITED!" The other day we were walking out the door and she stops, turns around saying; "Oh! My babydoll! I forgot it!" before running back inside. Every day it's something new!

    She's also a master of my iPad already. She loves the matching of shapes games and the card memory games. She'll just plot down on the couch with my iPad, turn it on, and start playing. Makes me nervous a little though...

    Here are some recent pics:

    This one is from October.


    This one is at the beginning of December during a family get-together. They were fighting over the iPad here and I had to give them a talking to. On the left is her cousin Cole who is 1 month her junior, and to the right is Josie who I believe is 4, and then her cousin Chelsea who is 9 months her junior.


    Here is a Xmas Photo Pose:


    This one is with Mialee opening her present from Santa:


    And this was us waiting in line to see Santa:
