Pittsburgh. Friends. Baby.

My bestest is going to have a baby this summer!  This weekend we made a trip to Pittsburgh to visit and help to prepare the baby's nursery.

Upon arrival Olive peeking through the front window at Owen (the cat).

Ellen and I's handy stencil work. It looks so cool!  So happy It turned out so great and they love it. Now I want to try and stencil something at home :)

Potty Time!

Olive has been introduced to the potty. She's not really into it yet. She is pretty excellent at telling us after she already went in her diaper. Ha!  She may be more difficult than Dane was at potty training but we'll see. We've only just begun.

My Sisters and I

Here's my sisters and I.
When I take pictures it's not always for the present. I know someday we may want to see what us girls use to look like before we got all old-like. 
This picture is kinda funny in that we're all in different decades 20's, 30's and 40's and it seems hard to tell who belongs to which age group.

Happy Valentines Day!

It's that time again. Valentines Day! I love it. I once again ordered a Valentine Card kit from Paper Source. Dane chose the guitars this year. I really enjoy our crafty time and discussing what Valentines Day is all about...... LOVE :)
He is looking less than impressed. He could be sick of me taking his picture I guess.

Another Milestone.....

Dane lost his 1st tooth! Isn't he growing up fast!?
Started last night with a bunch of crying and drama when he bit into an apple and felt it crack. He cried and cried about it. Then I explained the whole thing and how exciting it was to have the tooth fairy come. Etc. Etc.
Then I started to tell the story about when he first got that tooth. He was 5 months old. I was pushing a cart through Walmart with him in his infant carrier right up front.  He was cranky and teething so I put my finger in his mouth to let him gum on it alittle. Sure enough he bit down hard and there was a little tooth there. Now that tooth is gone.....
He woke up and wiggled and wiggled it till it popped right out!
He looks so CUTE!
* A patient of mine gave me this First Tooth holder when he was born.
It seemed like forever away at the time. Yet here it is.

We went to Cosi yesterday for a little family fun. We should have looked into it a little more because if we had we would have noticed that it was a 'special' day and Iron Man was going to be there for a photo op. The placed was super BUSY! 
We had fun anyway.
I've added some more to my plate and have even less time that I normally do. In place of my blogging time I've been exercising.  So you may see even less blogging in the future. I'm so thankful for my supportive husband. Not only is he watching the kids while I'm at work he's also watching them while I head down to the basement for roughly 45 minutes of 'me' time around 4x a week. I'm trying to take advantage of him while he's here. Not sure how I'll fit it in when he returns to work but I'll find a way to make it work.  My end goal would be working myself to run a 5K but we'll see. Taking it one work out @ a time.
