Just wanted to show off another cute picture of Shaylan. She is about 8 months older than Sylvie and I think they have the same eyes. Shaylan and Sylvie are cousins and soon they will be the best of friends. At this point Shaylan is very curious about Sylvie and doesn't like it when "her" grandma holds another baby. Good thing Sylvie is still to small to understand jealousy. It will be interesting when they are both a little older.

Just a couple cute pictures of Shaylan enjoying her first cake. She started out like a little lady and then the sugar kicked in and she really got into it.

I know that is a little cheesy, but I could get into a lot more cheesy stuff like being thankful for her little toes that wiggle out of her socks her her big eyes that are full of giggles and love, but I will stop there. This is the kinda stuff you think about in the middle of the night while nursing. Then I realized that my mom probably had these thoughts about me too.
So here are some other things I am thankful for:
ice cream--and lots of it
a good book
Sylvia is thankful for:
her fingers-they provide hours of entertainment
super soft bamboo diapers
the blue frog on her exersaucer
Adam is thankful for (in no particular order):
2 good jobs
Sylvia's great daycare
our wonderful friends and family
Jameson Irish Whiskey
Please leave us comments letting us know what you are thankful for!

Hi Grandma, Just wanted to say Happy Birthday!

No pictures of Sylvie, she spent the party being crabby in the other room. I guess she doesn't like it when the attention isn't all on her:)

Sylvia was 'talking' with Jamie this weekend. I found their conversation to be very exciting!
Not much is new with us, besides the obvious... Looking forward to seeing the families for Thanksgiving. Hopefully some new pictures will be posted soon as well.

With the addition of Sylvia to our family, we have had to make many new purchases... A crib, a swing, baby clothes, diapers... you know, the staples. One other item that seems to be a staple with parents these days is a camcorder.
Just last week, our new toy arrived. Here is a quick little video of Sylvia talking away this morning while Mom and Dad were trying to sleep in.
Hope you enjoyed, and we will have more soon.

Do these two great grandpas get a 2 for 1 deal? I think Adam might have a new hair style soon.

For Sylvia's first Halloween, Jamie, Missy, and Sylvia spent the night in, while Dad was curling. For our decoration out front, neighbors Ben and Bonnie carved this pumpkin for us.
Also included with the treats was this strange creature, let's call her Sally. Do anyone know what kind of creature Sally is? No matter what she is, I have a pretty good idea that Lucy will love her very much!
