Somehow in the transition from our old computer to this one I lost all the addresses we had.  Funny how that always seems to happen.  Anyway, I've spent some time online and have found most of them - at least those of you who are in a more permanent residence with home phones.  As for the rest of you...mostly those who don't own your own home...I can't find you.  If you'd like a baby announcement (when the time comes) or any other possibility of getting mail from us please give me your address.  You can call me or email me at  Thanks!!

Matching Aprons

Last year I made an apron for myself and a matching one for Hannah.  At the time it was way to big for her, but I figured one day it would come in handy.  We just broke it out and she loves it.  Here she is helping me make a mess in the kitchen.

Just like all other kids, Hannah loves the cell phone.  She knows exactly which pocket it goes into in the diaper bag and she always finds it.  I try to keep it out of her reach as often as possible.  This shelf is our "out of Hannah's reach for important things like phones, ipod, and keys.  I went to the bathroom the other day and this is what I found.....

Yep, she got the cell phone.  And I'm willing to bet she connected to the internet since that isn't a part of the plan.

Child Labor

I'm sure this is normal, but Hannah absolutely loves cleaning.  I'm not sure if it's just because she sees me doing it or what...but she loves it.  Doing the dishes, 'cleaning' the mirrors, wiping up spills, dusting.  She likes the broom, our dustbuster, and the vacuum.  She has always loved these, but since visiting Grandma's at Christmastime where she had free reign on a little motorized broom, she REALLY likes the vacuum at home.  She thinks she should be able to do it all alone and gets mad at me when I try to help steer in any way.

This is the look I get when I try to help her.  She's not too happy with me.

Baby Jealousy?

We came home with a car load of things - mostly baby stuff.  It took a day or two to get everything unpacked and organized.  Hannah absolutely loved going through all of the baby clothes (that added at least a few hours to the entire process).  But, I think her favorite part was the car seat.  She thought it was absolutely great.  She kept climbing into it over and over.  She wasn't too happy when we finally put it away.  Maybe there will be a little bit of sibling jealousy once she sees that she's not the one using the car seat.

Nap Time

It has been a long day, and it's only 1 pm.  Hannah's napping so I just got done all the cleaning and cooking.  I know I should post pictures and update on what we've been up to.  But, I'm tired, and the back is I think I'm just going to lay down next to Hannah and close my eyes.....
