Addie put on my shades last week and said, "Mom, I'm posh!" Thank you to Natalie for the book, Fancy Nancy, where she learned that word :)

Almost walking! Well, he is walking-- about 7-8 steps before realizing he can crawl way faster!

Addie was in her first parade last Saturday! My dance team did a pom dance and Addie danced along with them. She loved it!!

Ok- rephrase that-- Addie danced along behind them (most of the time) !

Addie was just being goofy today -- wearing my shoes :)

We're doing well. Addie is LOVING preschool!! She goes twice a week for 2 hours each time. They sing songs, have story time, make crafts, and eat snacks, among other things, I'm sure. I think it will be very good for her. And it's a nice break for me!

Eli had his one year appt today. Here are his stats (this is for Brandt):
Height: 30 inches (50th-75th percentile)
Weight: 23 lb. 7 oz. (50th-75th percentile)
Head: 48.5 (95th percentile)
His shots were horrible. As a parent, you always feel so helpless as you are pinning down the screaming child! But we survived :)

Missing Brandt a lot this week. Looking forward to the weekend.

Well, we did it! B and I had a fantastic weekend in Duluth as we participated in the Inline Marathon. It was windy and a bit wet, but we survived with no falls and had a blast!! We also enjoyed the company of good friends :)

I sent my baby girl off to preschool this morning. She was SUPER excited!! It's just 2 hours a day, 2 days a week, but yes, I still cried after I dropped her off. Kinda a big milestone in my book. Now Eli is napping and I'm going to enjoy a bit of peace and quiet... but today I'll probably be counting down the minutes until I can pick her up :) I'm sure I'll get past that soon ;)

Eli's favorite pastimes... looking out the window for Dad and climbing in the fridge
