Photo Tag


So, I've been tagged by my sister-in-law Kate to post a random picture on my computer. I'm supposed to post the 4th picture in the 4th file on my computer. Hmmm....that was a bit challenging, considering I have so many files within files (so I like a little organization, so what?) What I finally decided upon as the photo is from graduation day at Idaho State University. Wahoo! The day of liberation from my masters program had finally arrived! (Okay, so it was more like an emotional dichotomy--leaving behind so many people, memories, and experiences, both good and bad, that had completely shaped me as a person and a counselor, and exhilaration at finishing two of the hardest years of my life.) So, from left to right, meet Steve, Cindy, Mark, Brandon, Brooks, Kate, Marlene, Tanja, Cathy, Lisa, Malya, & Wendy. Good times. Glad it's over.


So, now...are you ready to play...I tag Anna, Emily, Lindsay, Maria, Holly, and anyone else who reads this and wants to play. :)

Another Milestone


The notion of eating has expanded to include a whole new dimension, as Jake's first bite of solid food occurred this morning. Yummy rice cereal (smelled like Cream of Wheat to me). He made some classic funny faces (as in "What is this stuff and what am I supposed to do with it??") but overall did a good job with it.

Keeping a small baby entertained is no easy feat, especially one that wants to go and do so much beyond his capabilities. Our little monkey fits this definition perfectly. So, sometimes we have to be creative to entertain ourselves along with our son.

Rollin' Rollin' Rollin'

It's now official. Jake can roll over. We thought he did it about a month ago, but the doctor said it didn't count because his arm was stuck underneath him. So, last Saturday while Brian and I were eating dinner at the table, we looked over at our son who was playing on a blanket on the floor and there he was, on his tummy with both arms in front of him. He'd done it and we missed it! Oh well, Jake has made sure to impress us with his rolling abilities about 25 times a day since then. LOL :)It's crazy how fast he is developing and progressing, and how much life continues to change for us as he does so. So, check out little man Jake showing off his latest and greatest.
