A religious M chases down a copy of "the broken heart" as R tries unsuccessfully to unload his backpack in M presence! Posted by Picasa


Little M started crawling this week! unfortunately we can't post any videos of him, but there is a photo to come later of him in action :) he also has mastered being able to get to sitting all by himself and stay there indefinitely. he especially enjoys this when he's not quite in agreement with bedtime or nap time arrangements. So R and i are in the process of baby-proofing, which isn't as bad as i thought it would be. but then again we haven't had a baby-related crisis involving dishes or Cd's or something yet either. i'm sure we will at some point. another one of M's tricks is that while crawling he sometimes likes to stand on hand and feet and then push up onto his tippie-toes and balance there. lately he's even taken to balancing on one foot (toe) while doing this. so we may have some type of acrobat on our hands!

My First Blog

Oh how exciting! i'm a blogger. first of all, don't be alarmed if you don't see any capital letters, or very few. i am anti taking-the-time-to-hit-shift-while-typing. that "O" at the beginning was a one time thing. so i'm actually inspired to do this mainly by my friend Claire, who is quite hilarious on her blog. claire and i met at the BYU Museum of Art, and have subsequently emailed about once a year, directly to each other. but in a strange "small world" turn of events, last summer R (my hubby) and his old friend J ended up both doing their law school internships in the same building in AZ. and also both ended up living in mesa, a few blocks from each other. and guess who J's married to? Another J, Claire's sister. weird, huh? anyways, i was pretty pregnant by the time we got there last summer, and it turned out that J was pregnant too (although she just had her baby like yesterday, and mine (Miles) is now 7 months and threatening to crawl at any second), so we were gym monkeys together.

so thank you for the inspiration claire. i will now become more organized in my random thoughts. and i have a lot of them. so without further ado, i will commence with the posting of recent pictures of M for your viewing pleasure :)
