The short take...

We're enjoying a crazy summer (already), before Kate starts Kindergarten (ALREADY!!?) this fall. Our kids are so much fun, and we are SO blessed!

January 25, 2008

January has passed more quickly than we can believe! Kate has mastered sitting up and playing with any toys that happen to be around-for quite impressive periods of time. That's distracted her from her attempts at mobility for a few weeks, but she's starting to realize that she should be able to get to other toys that are out of her reach. For now however, her attempts to move to them consists mostly of lunges when you're holding her, and a bit of spinning and small scoots when she's on the ground. She's just getting cuter every day, as you'll see when we post January's pictures in a week or so (including great pictures we've taken with Michael's amazing new camera), and her babbling and squealing with delight and laughter just brightenes up our lives.

Michael's all healthy and back at work again after battling a sinus infection for almost a week, and Kyla's been doing some training at work this week, so though it's been an out-of-the-ordinary week or two, life feels like it's starting to stabilize out again after the holidays. Of course, that only means it's the calm before the storm, no doubt, but it's great while it lasts. We're going to be heading down to my grandparent's and Kyla's mom's houses for a visit this weekend for the first time since Kate was born, so that will be fun, if quite interesting. We get to learn how to travel with kids! :-)

Well, this post marks our first using Michael's new publishing tool that he wrote - hopefully what that means is updates closer to weekly, rather than monthly. So thanks for visiting, and remember to keep checking back for updates! We love you all!
