1st Day of School

James left this morning for his first day of school.  He wasn't too excited about the picture, but I made him take one anyway.  Here he is.  Good luck hon!

Lazy Sunday Afternoon

Good Books

Does anyone have any good books to recommend? 

James is starting school next week and I have a feeling he'll be doing a lot of studying in the evenings.  So, I need to have something to do that's quiet and won't wake Hannah up.  I'd love any suggestions.

14 Months

I can't believe she's already 14 months old.  That's crazy to me.  Here's what she's been up to:

* she is now a screamer - when she's happy, angry, or frustrated she is very vocal about it.
* she walks all over the place and is learning to run from us.
* she loves to transport things, particularly from under the bathroom sink to the bathtub.

She recently discovered the toilet and we've had a hard time keeping her out of it.  I usually just try to keep the bathroom door shut, but when I'm in the bathroom getting ready she's usually in there.  I looked into a toilet lock, but those things are like $10, so we now have James' toolbox on top so she can't open the lid.  I'm hoping that cures her.

Around 3 this morning we woke up to the sound of a few gun shots.  We don't generally here that, but it didn't seem odd or out of place to me.  I thought to myself...hmm.. someone just shot a gun.  Oh well....then rolled over and went back to sleep.  Yikes!
