stand up comedy

Watch this and then take a wild guess as to Lena's favorite word:

5 pictures = 5,000 words, right?

This is Lena using her cuteness to try and convince Uncle Dave to let her play with his cell phone... or laptop, she's not picky.

Oh hi.  I'm just going shopping with all these bags.

These are the teeth marks someone left in daddy's deodorant 3 seconds before mommy was supposed to go a bridal shower. yum yum.

Now I'm cute AND have good smelling breath, thanks Old Spice!

Playtime is exhausting for everyone.

So Lena started walking right around her birthday.
Here's a little of video of her walking, talking, and waving

Cute, right?

And here are 2 pictures of Lena playing in Patch's crate... she loves it, of course.

better late than never

So Mike stole the camera and went here:
and so I couldn't post any pictures until now. 

so here we are.
and here's Lena eating some pasta:
yum yum.

So it's been awhile, yes.
Before Mike went hiking we all went on vacation with the Roth clan:

and then we just did some good ol' fashioned summer-hanging-out-and-stayin'-cool.
and then yesterday I had my ultrasound.
We had to wait in the waiting room for almost 2 hours. 
We were thrilled:

And then we got some news from the doctors:

1) My expected due date of Dec 27th was wrong.  It is now Jan 13th.
2) Baby #2 is a BOY
We were more than a bit surprised:
But excited too.

Here's Lena's reaction when we told her the new baby was a boy:

No, just kidding.  That's Lena being mad at me for making her wear a bubble beard.
But don't worry, she's fine.
See?  Happy happy.

Now our only problem is the fact that we'll have to name this child.  Have I ever mentioned that there are no boys names I like?  And have I also ever mentioned that Mike and I have opposite taste in names?  This is going to be a tough one.

Ok, I promise it won't be as long til the next time I update this thing.
