Tub Graffiti

The girls got a few late Christmas gifts this past weekend from Grammy
and Grammpy (the CT grandparents). The favorite, especially for Josie,
were the crayons for the tub. Will be interesting to see what happens
to the restbof the walls in the house now that it's "okay" to color on
the tub/shower walls.

We got some great pictures of the girls with Grammy and Grammpy as
well as the girl's great grandmother, Nauni, withbthe D60. Hope to get
some of those up soon!

Table Drummer!

Was just testing out the iPhone ability to take video and e-mail to the blogosphere! Just a quick clip of Lily practicing to be the next Matt Cameron or maybe Meg White :) She certainly loves banging on things!!

Cyclemeter Cycle Mar 21, 2010 11:37:29 AM

The "Year of the Bike" finally continued on Sunday with a ride with some friends form the neighborhood. Not a blazing pace but the company was nice and the weather was absolutely stellar! I got to try out my new iPhone app. "Cyclemeter" which is really awesome. It tracks your entire route through GPS. Gives you speed, avg. speed, ride time, distance, fasted speed, etc...  Even shows you a map of your route through Google Maps! Technology never ceases to amaze me! Also works from running, walking, hiking, skating, and several other things.

Can I come out and play?


Josie and I were outside after dinner playing with sidewalk chalk and kicking the soccer ball around a bit. It was beatiful, cool night. Clearly Lily wanted to join in the fun!

Josie, noticing Lily at the sliding door, proceeded to try to "huff and puff and BLOW your house in!!!" Lily laughed and so did I...

Thanks Lil!

Lily dropped a massive turd in the tub for me last night. Ahhhh
parenthood.

Tubbie Time Together

Josie and Lily in the tub together! Most of the time this is fun,
sometimes nerve racking, but always makes for some great photo ops.
Can't beleive how big they are both getting!

They had fun together and even managed a kiss or two. Was great to
watch!

Sweet Lil

Lily here is trying peak around the iPhone to try and see daddy. I had
had enough of trying to get her to eat so I figured why not just snap
a few photos of our stubborn little eater.

In all seriousness we think she just has an issue with swallowing some
things at this point. She'll put most things in her mouth but ends up
just getting frustrated with the chewing and swallowing part. Oh
well... She'll get there.
