Washing the Fishies

January 24, 2010

This evening I was enjoying a quiet moment on the computer when I had this sequence of thoughts: “It’s so nice to sit for a minute, I’m glad Kalyn is entertaining herself over there. In fact, she is being too quiet, that means she is probably up to something. I should probably look and see what she is up to. But it’s so nice to sit here in ignorance. Whatever it is can’t be that bad, I can see that she is right there. I’ll just sit here for another minute…”

When Kalyn started saying “Wash fishies” I knew I had to investigate, and this is what I found…

Fun With Photo Booth

January 22, 2010

Kalyn and I had fun playing with Photo Booth on my mac the other day, and I thought I’d share the results with you.

We haven’t been doing much fun and exciting stuff since I’m feeling very large and awkward and tired and etc. This pregnancy has been SO much easier than the last one, though, so I can’t complain too much. We’ll keep you posted on any updates on new baby.

Baby Update

January 22, 2010

We went to the doctor today. Everything is looking good and the baby’s head is in the right position. However, there was no dialation. Just lots of softening. That is all to report.

Just so you don’t waste all your time, here is a fun video to enjoy.

Snow in the Rocky Mountains

January 3, 2010

Yesterday we took a little trip up to Rocky Mountain National Park. It’s always a lovely drive, and the park is so pretty in the snow.  We went to the sledding hill in the park, but unfortunately it really wasn’t much of a hill.  That was okay, though, because Kalyn was much more interested in playing in the snow then sledding, anyway.  It was fun to spend time together.

In the video you can see how Kalyn was enjoying climbing up the snow drift on the side of the warming hut.  You can also see how silly I looked.  Since we aren’t about to spend a bunch of money on maternity snow gear, I was stuck wearing the biggest coat we have.  I looked like a great big shapeless marshmallow. But, I was warm!

Just a note – if you enjoy reading our posts go ahead and leave a comment! It lets me know people are actually reading the blog, and it’s fun to read what other people have to say.

Just Like Daddy

January 3, 2010

One of my favorite things that Kalyn does right now is imitating Mommy & Daddy.  The other day Tim was working on a calculator upstairs when Kalyn, completely on her own, went all the way downstairs and grabbed another calculator, and then came back and sat next to Tim and pushed buttons. It was extremely cute.

On a related note, after much practice Kalyn is now able to say the word “calculator” correctly.
