We have a lot of planning and organizing around here to do... another room to get ready. We'll find out the gender at about 20 weeks -so we'll keep you all posted. Of course, I want another girl, and Allen would love to have a boy. Our due date is officially July 2nd, but Dana came at 38 weeks... so we're hopeful for a late June birth (like we can control that!)
Keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
Merry Christmas to all!

Dana was very interested in her cousin, Chloe.

Well, the past few weeks have included some MAJOR changes around here! Dana has been growing in leaps and bounds! She is now a talented crawler! This video shows her progression from 'army-man' skooching to full-blown crawl.
We've been busy baby-proofing our home.
She's also grown her first tooth! It's about time! She is getting used to the new chomper - and even bitten me once! I know more are on the way!
More to come soon!

Maybe not all of you know, but we have been without the use of our master bathroom shower for a while now... the tile and grout has failed and leaked down to the ceiling of our family room. We've recently tried taking out a home equity loan for a mere $5,000 to try to repair/replace the shower. Now, generally we have good credit and we pay our mortgage on time - but our bank has even turned us down! It's sad when people like us can't get a loan... I KNOW that many people have similar stories to share. I feel your frustration.
My prescription? (more cowbell!) No, kidding...
Laughter: Go to:
My favorite cake? The Macho Man ... it's a couple of pages back...
Hopefully a little laughter will help you out too!
Dana pics coming soon!

Saturday morning we got up ate breakfast and packed the car for our first trip to Pullman with the baby! We've been looking forward to this trip - showing Dana around and attending our first football game in the newly renovated Martin Stadium. Of course Dana has her own Coug gear that we purchased last year... you'd think that six month stuff would still fit... but unfortunately, her head was too big!
She just had to pose for this picture ... we promised to go shopping at the Bookie when we arrived in Pullman...
The highchair at Rancho was one of the oldest I've ever seen - it sure did make a loud sound when she banged on it though! She loved it! I kept worrying that she'd slide out of it!
Dana was just a star during the game. The cheering crowds didn't bother her a bit!We left at half time... the score said it all. We chalked it up to the baby needing to get home to sleep. We left Pullman around 5 pm and got home about 10.
Sunday was another full day!
First church and then off to Woodinville to help my Grandma celebrate her 80th Birthday!
After the party at Grandma's church it was back to her house to celebrate more with the family. Yes, even after all this, Dana is just a happy, happy baby! (That's Grandma's chihuahua, Abbey in the background) Thanks to Cousin Ashley for taking this great picture!
Today was about sleeping and getting back into a routine. I am very fortunate to have a baby that is so easy going and good natured! I feel very blessed to be able to go and do all this great stuff together as a family.
