What's really nice about the blog is that it serves as a kind of scrap-book - a way to remember things and their context as time goes by. I love to go back and look at our posts when we were brand new parents, trying to figure out which end of Bryce to put the diaper on. I like to look back at Ty's Prague posts, at the 2008 presidential election madness, at the cancer treatments.
I wish I used it more.
I do have some lovely pictures of the kids to post. I look forward to looking back on these.
Here's when Ty became a master bread maker -- before I realized I'm now gluten intolerant. Drag.

She likes to scream loudly when she’s not happy with her current situation. We try to ignore this.
She enjoys grabbing her feet and sucking on her toes during diaper changes.
She likes to grab and pull my hair. It makes her laugh hysterically.
She will eat a little bit of solid food, but she exhales/blows out as soon as the food is in her mouth. I wear a lot of it.
She will watch, and laugh at, Bryce any chance she gets.
She enjoys riding in her stroller on walks with Papa to take Bryce to school.
She likes Sharka. She will grab her fur whenever she gets a chance, and giggles when Sharka snuffles her.
She flirts with strangers at restaurants/coffee shops/etc.
She kicky-kicky-kicks her legs when she’s really happy or excited, and sometimes she buries her face in her papa’s chest when she gets just way too happy.
She has a tooth on the bottom left, and enjoys chewing on anything she can get into her mouth. She would LOVE to get hold of the newspaper but has thus far been thwarted in her every attempt. She did nearly eat a receipt I didn’t catch until it was almost too late.

I started this week with walk/runs for 25 minutes, taking Bryce in the jogging stroller. Downloaded a nifty little app (free!) to use on the iPod. It basically just shouts out when to walk and when to run, and it will gradually up the running time and lower the walking time until I'm running the whole time. It feels so good! The only challenge is, of course, finding time to go do it. There's no way I can get myself out of bed before 6:30 a.m., so running on weekdays gets tricky.
This, and Ty and I finally hooked up the kid-trailer to the bicycle. Bryce enjoyed his ride and Ty felt pretty good afterward too!
