So Much to Blog, So Little Time...

Summer is in full swing and I rarely have time to sit down and blog. My problem is that I always want to say a lot and I have a hard time just posting a few things. We had an awesome visit with my friend Lori, but I will save that for a separate post. For now let me just update you on some of the latest with the girls.

Lily has her first loose tooth and to say she is excited is a gross understatement. For over a year she has been asking me when she was going to lose a tooth, ever since she saw an episode of Arthur with the Tooth Fairy. I'll bet she loses the sucker within about 10 days. On the 4th of July she was showing everyone her loose tooth and Dan was like, "OK, you're grossing me out!" He said, "I remember being young and having this almost uncontrollable compulsion to play with your loose tooth. There was this weird itch down in your gums, you just had to wiggle it!"

Amelia started crawling on June 7th and within just a few days she was pretty efficient at getting around.
About 10 days after that she started pulling herself up on furniture and just a few days after that she started cruising, standing up and walking along furniture, stairs, and people. We have baby gates up all over the house, but there is one spot where the wall is at an angle so the gate won't fit. We've been putting a chair in front of the stairs, but once Amelia started to pull herself up, my Mom suggested attaching the chair with a bungee cord. Very ingenious!

On Friday she started to climb stairs. Slow down, Baby! If I can figure out how to post a video clip I'll do that soon.

That's it for now...I'm off to do reunion preparations. Only 3 days away!

Does Lily have a band aid on her chin as well? Will the toothfairy be able to find her in Eden? And about the video, the best way we found was to get a YouTube account and then you can actually transfer it straight from there.

I hate teeth stuff!! I dont' know how I am going to even be able to look at a loose tooth, let alone pull one when my kids get to that stage. Brad better be good in that area! Good luck!!
