We're still here.

It seems like there's been a lot going on lately and nothing much at all, all at the same time. Some random happenings...

  • Ella had her 15 month check up. She's 25 lbs. 6 oz. and 31 1/4 inches long. She grew three inches in three months so that was the big surprise. The nurses kept talking about how tall she was. We're just relieved that she seems to be growing out of her short and stocky phase :).
  • Last Saturday we attended a surprise joint 30th birthday/square dancing party for our friends Nick and Jason (I'll give you a minute to wrap your minds around that one), and we came home to our upstairs bathroom under a 1/2 inch of water and a gentle waterfall streaming down the insides of our walls. Apparently a toilet was plugged and running for two hours, and that's what that combination will get you. We think everything is A-OK now and it wasn't really enough water to cause any long-term damage, just short-term chaos.
  • We are officially hooked on American Idol this season and it's noteworthy 1) because Matt and I hardly ever watch the same shows and 2) because I'm sure I'll become slightly obsessed as the season goes on and you should have fair warning.
  • Dylan went to his first dentist appointment yesterday. We have been speaking very highly of the dentist the last few weeks, so he was pretty excited to go. He did such a good job and let the hygienist clean all of his teeth. Last night he told Matt very seriously, "The man is the dentist. The lady is the cleaner." So much for avoiding gender stereotypes :).
  • Today I went to a little surprise birthday lunch for Matt's Grandma who is turning 70. First of all, she is nothing like your average 70-year-old grandma. She's the Fitness 19 Grandma who calls over here almost weekly to see if Dylan can come over and play. Anyway, after the "party" today she told Matt's mom it was the first birthday party she'd ever had. Gotta love Grandma.
  • And finally, Ella's Brilliant Bows arrived in the mail and they are very cute on her. I'll try to take a picture soon. No more mistaking her for a boy!


  1. What kind of a dimwit would mistake Ella for a boy?

  2. You'd be surprised! She was wearing a hot pink dress last week, and this guy thought she was a boy and kept calling her "little buddy."

  3. UGHHHHH - who would put a little boy in a hot pink dress?! Is that really the side he wanted to err on? THINK People! I'm looking forward to pics of her new bows!

  4. Great to hear the updates! Sounds like you're as busy as we are now-a-days :) And I'm glad to hear that we're not the only ones addicted to American Idol!
