Last but not least

We officially survived the holidays. It was nice to take a moment and consider just what a difference a year can make. Moira has changed our lives in more ways then we could ever have imagined. We day dream about sleeping and eating a meal in quiet contentment, of staying up late and not having to worry about how early we'll have to get up. In return however we get to see the beauty and wonder in everything through the eyes of our child. We get to remember that christmas lights on a cold night can be the most beautiful thing you've ever seen and that there is always time to have fun in life. We also learned that cheesy family photos are mandatory. Here's the latest one. . . . as you can see Moira has already perfected her my parents are dorks expression.

Mmmm. . . Broccoli

Need I say more.

Moira's Magnificent Hat

Moira now has a hat befitting her regal attitude. Of course her newest skill is pulling off hats and flinging them aside in disdain so the moment is short lived. She did however ham it up for the paparazzi on grandma Judy's deck.

Christmas Pictures

Well now that you have all gotten your Christmas cards I can post the Christmas pics. I didn't want to spoil any of the surprise cuteness by putting them all on early.


Well we survived Thanksgiving. Everyone had a great time and we managed to squeeze 17 people into our little townhouse. Moira dazzled everyone by doing a lot of standing and found the bounty of appetizers on the coffee table an irresistible temptation.

Halloween Torture

I just couldn't wait for halloween so here's one of Moira's costumes. This is a Tom Arma costume I found used for $6 (they retail for $50). Being the savy ebay'er I've already got it up for sale and it looks like I'll make about $20. Unfortunatley the model baby and border collie were less than enthusiastic subjuects. We might just have to try one more time to see if we can get some smiles.
Moira has been intent on studying everything for the last few weeks. When we are eating or talking she will just sit there and stare at us. It makes you a little self-conscious.

Moira is also desperately trying to crawl. She manages to get up on her hands and knees then, after a few moments of rocking back and forth, face plants. This setback doesn't seem to slow her down - she continues doing this until she can't muster the strength to lift herself.

First Post!

Golly I got teh first post!
