I am taking 16 credits this fall- it's a lot of work. I get to start teaching with my partner, Heidi, in November. I am really looking forward to it (knock on wood).
McKenzie is a lovable yet challenging little 3 year old. I can't believe how hard it is raising a toddler. She is taking dance classes once a week- SHE LOVES IT! She has quite a personality, already. Who said girls are easier?! Did someone really say that?
Morgan is one of the sweetest babies I've ever met. :) He can roll from front to back and back to front. He likes to talk and laughs a lot. He is eating rice cereal, oatmeal, and formula. I'm not sure of his exact weight but he is very large and handsome.

I CAN'T believe you are three years old! Your strong will and gigantic personality keep all of us on our toes...Remember, no matter what, you are LOVED and CHERISHED by your family and friends (with the exception of an accident every now and again- you are potty-trained)...
Thank you for bringing love, laughter, happiness, excitement, adventure,

Morgan is 3 months old today!
Weight: 16 lbs.
Height: 25 inches
He sleeps through the night, mostly. He laughs and coos A LOT.
Smiling is his favorite pastime.
What a strong boy he is- holding his head without help and kicking his legs like he's running a marathon.
We love him so much!

1. Shampoo: Is there really that big of a difference between all of the shampoos? I buy the not cheap/not expensive kind that is meant for blonds-natural or not. What is the ingredient used that makes it exclusively helpful for blondies? Or is this an example of the consumer (me) falling for the crap being fed to her? There probably isn't a difference- it is all psychological.
3. I have watched every episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8. Is it stupid that I liked this show? Don't answer that. I feel like such a sucker, because now it seems like Jon & Kate are purposely exploiting their small children for money, when before I thought it was just a way for people to see what it was like to raise multiples. What happened?
4. Since when did manners go out the window? Would it be too much to ask for someone to appreciate the nice things people did for them- all out of love? Seriously- a bunch of persons that I know did something really great for one particular person this weekend and I don't think any of them were ever thanked. NEVER underestimate the importance or weight of a heartfelt "thank you."
5. Speaking of weddings, I have been presented with a somewhat peculiar request (more than once), I am wondering if it is normal or if I am justified in being a tiny bit annoyed by this reoccurring scenario: I have been invited to a bridal shower for someone I have never spoken to in my life, and this person is having a "small" wedding- which means that I won't be invited to the reception. Now this may not seem like a big deal to most- this is the FOURTH time this has happened to me- being invited to the bridal shower and not the reception and a couple of times I didn't even receive an announcement so I'm not even sure the couple went through with the wedding and what really happened to that ten dollar gift that I gave you that took me 4 hours to find because the parking lot at target was filled with toddlers running everywhere and forget trying to get the damn registry thing to print and is this the right color of towels or is it the darker shade of red and why can't I find the matching dishcloths? Perhaps this is a new thing to do- even though I believe it to be a smidge (that's right, I wrote the word smidge) on the side of tacky. If you aren't going to invite me to your wedding then I'm probably not important enough (and I'm not) to be invited to your bridal shower- you must be slightly desperate to be inviting me anyway since I have no money and can only afford to get you a "small" gift. Maybe these people feel sorry for me because I have like three friends and think that I have no life which is obvious after reading this post and in that case: I'd rather not receive your pity-invite thank you very much.

Congratulations to the new President.
He certainly has his work cut out for him.
It will be nearly impossible for him to live up to all the hype surrounding his administration, he would have to be magical- which of course he isn't.
The most exciting thing to me is that the President listed in our new baby's book at the time of his/her birth will be
