The weekend

Todd was getting over from being sick this past week.

N pooped in her bath, so sick.

Had friends over for dinner and some fun catch up time! (And really great brownies! Thanks Devin and Mercedes!)

Hit my almost 33 week mark.

We watched Jim Hansen's Labyrinth for the first time as a family. Todd thought it was weird, and Nwas entranced by it.

Todd and I discovered a new game and played some to help him take his mind off of homework and work projects.

I almost lost Todd and N to the Big White Puffy Blanket Monster. Good thing I got there in time!

I was able to make some progress on the Felt Noah's Ark I'm making. (Pictures to come when it's finished).

and

N also got an eraser stuck up her nose.

Oh fun times :)

The Millecam Farm

Here are pictures of the Barn my mom made for N.

(Mother Hen and the turtle are missing because N had them take a nap with her).


The barn is a hat box painted to look like a barn. Then letter stickers were used to spell "Millecam Farm" across the lid above the doors.

N's 2nd Birthday

N turned 2 last week and I'd say the day was a hit. Packages from Nana & Papa and Grandma & Grandpa Millecam came in the mail prior and were wrapped and placed on the table. I put up streamers on the kitchen walls and had some hanging from the ceiling - N thought those were pretty cool. And a Happy Birthday sign on the table to greet her when she woke up from her nap.

We picked Todd up from work that evening and headed to IKEA for N to play around and for her to pick out some gifts. She had a blast, only problem is she's been favoring the word "No". So it's become "No" for everything even when she means "Yes". So if she said "No" to a toy we put it away as a way to teach her. But after a while she did say "Yes" to a wooden train set. We headed home and decided to hold off on cake till the next day as it was late and the last thing I was going to give her was sugar!

While home we sang to her and let her open her presents! She got a baby stroller and bottles for her baby dolls, a toy broom (she loves to help me sweep!), cute clothes from the Millecam Grandparents, and an awesome toy farm from Nana and Papa. Nana made the barn out of a hat box. Pretty cool. So now she's stylish in clothes that fit her, is outfitted to play "mama" and has a cool barn full of animals that live near the train tracks.

Here's some clips from her birthday.

Needless to say she got to stay up late but when we did put her to bed she started to throw a fit because she still wanted to play with all the cool new toys. Daddy informed her they would be there in the morning and she could play with them first thing, that seemed to pacify her for the most part.

I don't expect much more to ever be posted on this blog, and I'm largely just posting this to share it with some particular friends....
