Watch her go! Hesitant at first, but now the world is her oyster (and mom's freakin' out!) She's already spilled my coffee twice and broken a wine bottle. And so it begins...

First Food! I'm not sure she liked the consistency... or the taste. But she was a trooper!

Let's here it for the boy!

So I come home from a (very) busy visit with my parents for KG's graduation and Amy's wedding. CONGRATS TO BOTH! Of course, I come home sick. I was going to leave Sat. night after the bar-b-que regardless, but I just felt so yucky, I came home right in the middle of the dinner celebration. I felt well enough to drive home but cratered afterwards. I just KNEW I had to get home to a loving husband and my own soft, comfy bed.

I got home to find that my absolutely outstanding mother-in-law had straightened up while Curt and Tom (father-in-law) worked hard outside. Then all day Sunday while I laid around moaning and complaining (when not sleeping) Curt kept Anna all day including putting her down for naps. I only saw my poopsqueak when it was time for her to eat. He checked on me often to see if I needed anything, went grocery shopping, started the laundry, cooked dinner and leapt tall buildings in a single bound.

Highlight of the sickness:
Becky's homemade chicken soup!
(Only thing I could eat while I was buy losing four pounds.) Let's hear it for Curt and Becky!!!

The busiest little drama queen in the universe!

Anna Bananna's kitties

Gotta throw a little Cricket and Julius in the mix!


Anna loves eating Mr. Turtle's head on her exesaucer. It always reminds me of a hilarious video that Curt and I love:

Choo Choo Train

Here are some sweet pics of Anna's first train ride on 4/10/2008! We loved the relaxing scenery and the "Green-ness" of the train. We went (of course) to see Granny and Granpa in St. Louis.) Anna and I stayed a day late to hang with Emily and the kiddos. The first pic is Anna and Curt on the ride there. The other picture is Anna sitting (like a big girl) on the fold down tray table. She loved looking out the windows!

Run, run, run!

Here are pics from this weekend. My friends Kayla, CJ, and Mary kicked-butt in a triathlon. Ed, Curt, Anna and I won the best cheerleading award. All in all - a great weekend including fun in the yard and yummy Curt cooking. Needed sleep afterwards though - whoo boy!

Did you see Anna's fist pumping the air? She's so cute!

Adorable babes!

Here are some sweet pics of Anna and her BFF Molly! Anna and Molly sitting in a tree - C-O-U-S-I-N-S! (Matching outfits are courtesy of Granny the super shopper who loves her Grandkiddos oh-so-much!)
