"I deet!"

Toddler Translation: "I did it!"

Janie set the table tonight all by herself. All I did was hand her each item and she put it on the table in the correct spot. Okay, I folded the napkins too--I'm not suggesting she's a genius,
just way above average!

Let no one question our loyalties. We bleed purple around here.

Jersey Girl

We spent Good Friday and Saturday visiting Andrew's step father Joseph and his wife Susan in Tom's River, New Jersey. Jane was very taken with "Grandpa Joe" and "Sue" and wanted to hold their hands whenever possible. We went to the beach and the boardwalk, but it was way too windy and cold to get the full effect. We all had a great time and can't wait to visit again this summer! Happy Birthday Grandpa Joe!

We took the time to dye Easter eggs before leaving on our whirlwind Easter tour of New Jersey and Philly. We only had one casualty as an over zealous toddler (who shall remain nameless) grabbed the bowl of "boo" dye and it spilled on the dining room table.

Okay, so I've been busy...

you know--creating LIFE and everything!

Jane is going to be a big sister!
That's the big news around here and the reason I haven't been posting lately. I've just been very, very tired. Our latest creation is due September 22nd. This is a picture of our sonogram picture from 8 weeks. If you look very carefully, you can see...something. Truthfully, I have no idea what anyone can make from these pictures. We called Jane "Wilma" when I was pregnant, partly because her sonogram picture looked like the eye of a hurricane. Right now, Andrew is calling the baby "Stewart Gilligan" after Stewie on Family Guy. I am calling the baby "Roger" after Roger the alien on American Dad. Suffice it to say, Andrew and I watch too many adult cartoons.
