Tonight Kaden and Brendyn were playing Cadoo...a game that sometimes involves one player drawing a word that the other players have to guess. Brendyn was up and had to draw something, but he had no idea how to go about putting this secret image onto paper. Kaden had the solution,

"It's easy!" he said, "you just trace your imagination."

Huh! Now why didn't I think of that?

Josie Little Josie

Josie just had her 9 month check up last week, and she is doing great! She is reaching all of her developmental milestones and we are so proud of her. She is crawling and kneeling (not quite standing) up on things. She is clapping and even doing "SO BIG" with her little hands together over her head:) And you should hear her little giggle, it just cracks me up!

The only thing the doc was concerned about was her weight gain. She went from the 80th percentile down to the 30th in the last 3 months. She now weighs 17 lbs. 14 oz, a whole pound less than her 6 month old cousin, Joseph! But the little stinker just isn't very interested in solids AT ALL! We're doing everything to entice her to eat, but for now it's mostly the bottle for her. I don't think I'm quite as concerned as the doc at this point, I'm not a big believer in those growth charts, and she is doing so well in every other area. Sooner or later every child grows and learns to eat, but for now, our little Josie, will be little.

Valentine's Day

Here is a gift I made for Brett for Valentine's Day:) By the way, the second song on the slide show is the one he played while he proposed to me.
