Mimi Can Talk!

Mimi discovered how to make sounds other than screams, and we've been having so much fun talking with her.  I also got her to laugh the other day, but she didn't want to laugh for the camera.  I can't wait till she's old enough to hit back, 'cause boy, is Thing One going to get it!  She will tell him in no uncertain terms that she is not his toy.

Happy Anniversary!



 Well, this is our second anniversary, sort of.  Again this year we haven't written consistently, but this year has had a lot in it--and has taken a lot out of me.  In some ways I'm still recovering since Mimi's birth.  I spent the past two weeks crafting and getting back into the swing of cleaning daily.  It's been wonderful!  I've also been taking a break from all that I'm "supposed" to do, like blogging and making dolls for my shop.  But as we approach the second anniversary for this blog thoughts begin to creep up on me. 


 Actually, I'm not sure what thoughts are creeping up on me, but I know which thoughts I should be thinking around this time of year.  I should be thinking of all of the different ways that our life has changed during this year, the things we've accomplished, the dreams we've abandoned and the blessings that we have. 


For instance, at this time last year we had started lessons in Italian.  That just didn't last.  We were also thinking about getting pregnant again.  Mimi was born a few weeks ago.
