10 on Tuesday - Thursday Edition

No pic, sorry!
 1. It is almost February...the month of 465 birthdays. Kevin is turning 30, enough said.
2. Rory doesn't like Broccoli, I think that it is the texture
3. We are going through the stage where Rory pushes us to see just how far she can push it before we push back. We are winning....most of the time.
4. The other night I told Rory to be still so that I could wipe her hiney and she said in an extrememly perky voice "Hi Niney!" It was pretty funny.
5. Is it Friday yet?
6. I am reading the book "The Help" It is pretty good...I definately recommend it.
7. We have NOTHING planned for this weekend...YAY!
8. I made braised short ribs, mashed potatoes and baked beans for dinner on Monday and they were GOOOD!
9. I made Chicken Divan for dinner last night and brought left overs for lunch today. One of my favorites.
10. Have I mentioned that I am ready for Friday yet? I have? Well I would like to repeat for dramatic effect...Is it Friday yet?

As Requested by the Grandparents

It's been a while.

It has been a while, I just thought that I would do a quick post and throw in a quick picture.

ADDED: A short cute story to go with this picture.  Yesterday morning Rory woke up at 4:30am and so in an effort to squeeze a bit more sleep in for all 3 of us, Kevin went and got her and put her in the bed between us.  She drifted back to sleep for about a half an hour and then she was awake.  She started going through her vocabulary, as is usual when she first wakes up.  We were all still laying in the bed, in the dark, and Kev and I were just listening to her jabber on and occassionally interjecting answers or comments to appropriate verbalizations.  All of a sudden we hear this:

R: (Patting my arm) "Mommy"

2 second pause

R: (Patting Kevin's arm) "Daddy"

2 second silence

R: (Patting herself on the tummy) "Baby"

It was absolutetly the cutest thing and it was all that Kevin and I could do not to squish her!  Well, that is it...Ciao!

10 on Tuesday

I haven't done a Ten on Tuesday in a while, so I thought that I would give it a go.

  1. Rory is 13 months old today...enough said
  2. We (Rory and I) will be in Decatur this weekend and would love to see anyone that is available.
  3. Kevin and I both turn 30 this year...Kevin in LESS THAN A MONTH!
  4. It is cold...I know, you are thinking..."Duh, it is January Lauren" but really, we haven't had a cold snap this prolonged in...well, I can't remember.
  5. I am having trouble coming up with 10.
  6. I am all caught up on laundry.  That is an accomplishment considering, including uniforms, we go through at least 7-9 clothing changes between the 3 of us in 1 day, on a good day.
  7. Rory is on whole milk and we have switched her to Horizon Organic with DHA.  She likes it better than regular whole milk.  We tried giving her just regular whole milk and she won't drink it.
  8. Rory is going to be in a wedding in June.  My cousin Emily is getting married.
  9. Speaking of weddings, we have 5 to go to this year, including 2 way out of town.  1 in Houston in April, 1 in either DC or New Orleans in the fall.  We are taking the baby sitter with us to Houston for sure.
  10. Sarah and Victoria will be 15 in just over a month.  I think I am going to be sick.

Better late than never?

Ok, so better late than never right?  So here is the Christmas post.  This first picture is of all the Grandkids and Great Grandkids on my Mom's side, with my Grandmother.  Notice how all the kids are behaving except for mine...clearly she is accustomed to being the center of attention.  Gee...I can't imagine why!
(Back Row: Eric, Michelle, Nikki, Rob, Kevin, Owen, Mallory, Patrick and Ava.  Seated: Me, Rory, Mama Sue, Victoria and Sarah Grace.  On the floor, Ashton and Hunter)

 Look what Santa brought!

"Mommy, that Doll is cute, but I really only care about my pacies"

"I take that back, pacies and peach puffs"
Kevin was the camera man on Christams morning and he apparently kept putting his hand in the way of the flash but is that not the cutest little bottom you have ever seen?
My Mom and Tim got her a little bath robe with a bunny on it.  Not that she will leave it on.  I get her out of the tub and put her it on her and as soon as I open the bathroom door, she flings it off and goes running naked through the house giggling...great!
Rory, her ducks, sock monkey, rabbit all riding in the wagon.  There was also a book (Gossie and Gertie...thanks Colleen!) in the compartment on the back.  This kid loves books, seriously, we probably read the same 3-4 30 times a day...I am not kidding, she can't get enough!
At first, Rory wasn't sure what to think of the whole thing, but she caught on pretty quickly.  She also was pretty excited to ride in the wagon, we rode around the house a few times, and then we bundled her up in my old snow suit and took a short stroll down the street.  It was a hit!  She was probably most excited about the peach puffs in her stocking.  She carried them around saying "Mo Fuff" (more puff) for a while.

I got a Flip HD from Kevin and a new crockpot.  Kevin got a new coat and a watch and my Mom and Tim got us  4 place settings of "Chirp" china.  We had a GREAT Christmas.

OK, I promise, more posts coming.
