So we got a new memory card. It holds about 600 pictures (and that's on the highest quality setting - the lowest quality - about 10,000!) - so the motivation to empty it isn't the greatest.
In addition to the memory card, we've also gotten 2 new (used) cars (not pictured) - I got a 2006 Honda Odyssey (a minivan) - I love it. J can get into his seat all by himself and the back has a/c (our old Tucson didn't have a/c vents in the back). It's pretty awesome. Shawn got a 2006 Volkswagon Passat. And that car is so fun! He had been driving my 2002 Hyundai Accent, which was on it's last legs (it had about 105k miles on it!) He needed a new car and found a great deal on the Passat. In addition to the cars, we also got a new stroller - which really isn't blog-worthy except that it's a Phil & Teds which is probably the most amazing stroller on Earth.
We also got...fish...(the fish pictured is dead. we started with 4, lost 1, got 3 more, lost 4, then lost 1....so now we're down to 1) RIP fish.
Now for kiddo pics.
Best. Smile. Ever!! Now she's started laughing, too, so most of my time with her is spent trying to make her laugh. She really liked when I would sing "Pop Goes the Weasel" and she also likes fake sneezes, just like J did.
Family picture - looking forward to a day when at least one kid doesn't have his/her fingers in their mouth at all times.
Daddy & his babies.
J also got a new car - from Grandpa & Grandma Roland in California. He loves it, especially when Shawn pushes him in it. He likes to say..."new! car!" He's also talking a lot more - he tries to say most words but a lot of it is still 'j-speak.' At his 2 year appt he was 25.8lbs (25th %tile) and 34" (50th %tile) The ped wanted him to go to speech therapy but I decided to give it time and see how he develops - he seems to be going through a period of rapid learning right now and I don't want to put him in therapy if he's doing fine on his own.
J was nice enough to let Sarah take a ride in his car. She was clearly thrilled.
Sarah checking out the fish tank.
And again, her dimples and smile. I cannot take enough pictures of it!
This is such a weird picture of J. Probably because of the pink bib, but the first time I looked at it I thought it was Lily with short hair. Is it just me?
I have about a million other pics but this post is getting long. next time!
