Time For A Change!!!!

BEFORE............ AFTER!!!!!

No, your eyes aren't fooling you....I got over 9 inches cut off my hair this morning! It was time for a change!! What'd ya think?

I told Tiernan to eat his green beans. He stuck one in his mouth and this is what happened to his face! While he looked at me like this, I made him say "Mmm, I like green beans!" :-) I think his face says something different. But he did eat all of them!!

I guess this is what you do as kids when you drop speghetti on the floor and mom doesn't clean it up right away! How fun!! :-)

This is what was on the counter when I got up on Valentine's Day!! Awww....I know, my husband is so sweet!! (He tells me now that he got the biggest heart of chocolate he could find so he can eat it too!!) I love him anyway!!

Caedmon's a Talkin' Machine!

Two days ago, Caedmon said his first word (other than Da Da and tons of babble). No, it's wasn't "mom" or "no" or "mine" or anything like was none other than "cookie!" It was so cute! I made cookies in the morning and then all day he was saying cookie! He also knows how to sign it so he would go back and forth between the two! Then today he said his second word! I thought I heard him say this last night but I didn't think he knew what he was saying and then today he's been saying it over and over...."Gampa!" (Grandpa). Oh, but he only whispers it!! He'll be babbling along and then I'll say "Caedmon, say Grandpa" and he'll whisper "Gampa". Now the fun begins!!

For those of you who haven't seen where we live, which is probably most of you b/c we don't get visitors very often, I'm posting a pic of our apt building. (Thanks to both sets of Grandparents, Darren Sara & William, Naomi, and our friends Wade & Michelle that have come to visit!!....and Amanda & Blaise but I didn't get to see them b/c they came when I was gone, but they came with Mary to clean my apt as a surprise after Brayan was born so I am glad they came!!) Once I take updated pic of the inside, I'll post them as well.
(If you find the big front doors of the building, we are on the second floor, to the right of the door...those three windows are our place!)

Well, it's freezing here in Luverne with wind chills at -30. Nathan only worked 4 hours yesterday b/c of the cold and then tomorrow it's supposed to snow, so we will see if he'll be home tomorrow too.... It leaves us no choice but to rent movies and hang out inside! Good thing there's a gym downstairs and movie rentals in Luverne are 53 cents including tax!!! Did I ever mention that I LOVE Luverne?? :-)

Anybody Else Sick of Winter??

We are! Nathan has been off of work a lot because of the cold weather and snow! Last week we were looking at the calendar and I told Nathan that out of the last 13 days, he's work 4 of them! Then since we were out of the 'cold snap' we thought he'd be done missing days but then Monday came and it snowed! So he was home again on Monday. The week's been good since then so hopefully it'll stay that way b/c no work means no $$!

(Ok, so I couldn't get this pic to rotate, sorry! ;-)

The kids decided to make their own slip and slide yesterday while I was on the phone! I usually don't answer the phone during the day, but since this was a call from my midwifes insurance people, I decided to take it. The connection was really quiet so I had to go in the other room to hear her. In the meantime, we have this big box that we moved some stuff to our place with and the kids have been playing with it and making it a slide. They climb on the back of the box while it is laying down and then they slide towards the front. Since it collapes in the front, they have a neat little slide! Well, I also had a bowl of water that I was thawing some hamburger in on the counter which Tiernan found. He knocked it over so water was falling like rain off the counter onto their slide. That did not stop them from sliding down the box, actually, it made it more fun! They then got the rest of the water all over the kitchen floor. So when I came out of the room, both the kids were soaked and there was water everywhere!! I made Tiernan take a dish towel and wipe it all up. Next time I think I'll just let the phone ring....or figure out a way to tie them down while I'm on it :-)
(Yes, Tiernan still steals the baby's nuk!)
