All in a days work...

As some you may know, I now work from home for a company that develops software for the iPhone. I am the "tech support" guy for the company, so I get to deal with hundreds of emails ranging from "My device will not sync to iCal" to "My iPhone goes to sleep after about 30 seconds, can you make that not happen?". Needless to say, I see some interesting emails throughout the day.

You may also know that Janine recently found a job and is now working at a Dental College here in Provo. She is gone from 9am-5pm so I am left to play Mr. Mom. We have a lot of fun. I just thought that I would share a few moments from this afternoon.

All was well until little Mya woke up from her nap, on the wrong side of the bed (if you know what I mean). So I decided to try to cheer her up... by listening to music and dancing. Well... it worked! I just stuck her in front of the computer with "Photo booth" opened and the second she saw herself she couldn't help but cry harder. Fortunately, those cries turned to smiles, which turned to laughing and all out dancing. Here is the sequence:

An Attempted Escape

Chris always tries to escape the basket blockade that I made to try and keep him in the family room. Yesterday he had a failed attempt and got high-centered.
(Hi guys)

We went to the zoo today. Theo loves the zoo. He wanted to ride the train, but I told him that I did not have any money. The whole way home he disparagingly said: "Train... no money."

One More Birthday Post for Dave

Mom, I thought you would be proud of the poster and decorations I made for Dave's birthday. Happy Birthday Dave!!

Our Not-So-Little Boy

Christopher had his nine month appointment today. He did great. His stats:
*weight: 19 lbs. 15 oz (50%)
*height: 29 in. (75%)
*head circumference: 18.5 in. (90%) - this must be why he is so smart :)
Christopher is crawling SO fast all over the place now. Its nice because he doesn't get as frustrated anymore because he can get to where he wants to go. He is also pulling himself up on just about anything.
Chris talks ALL the time now. His favorite "words" are: dadadadada, mamamamama, and babababa. And he LOVES having screaming contests with his dad, he thinks it is so funny.
He is interested in just about everything and it is so cute when he concentrates really hard on what he is playing with. He is very independent and likes to do whatever he can by himself (which is sometimes hard for me).
What a great kid we have!

Happy Birthday Dave

Anyone who sees Dave today, wish him a happy birthday.

A little more Michigan

So I just found some pictures we never posted of our visit to Michigan. I thought there were some good ones. The first one is not from Michigan. I took it a couple of hours ago, but I loved the lighting and how it caught Mya's eye color. And...if you blow up the picture, you can see her two teeth. She is getting so big. She now walks around the couch and anything at her level. She is fascinated by our DVD collection. She loves to pull them off the shelves. She is getting so big. She just turned 8 months yesterday. Oh how the days fly by.

I loved the snot bubble. I had to post it.

Some Pics

I just wanted to share a few photos. Theo won the cow when we went to "Cows on the Concourse" at the farmers market. He had to say his favorite ice cream. He has been carrying it around since Saturday.
