We're livin' it up on the U.P. - that's Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Punkie is 6 and LOVED Kindergarten! Isaboo is 2 and she's a smiley whirl wind. We also call her Busy-Isi. This year we welcomed little Lorenzo to our family.

Life is great!

Marley is growing, growing, growing, though I don't think she has broken 25#s yet.
She eats a lot, I promise.

She has been getting more hair. Still not enough to do anything. And when I say anything I mean NOTHING! What? Huh?
It's DARK and wavy.
And yet, in some places it's straight and in some lighting it is quite light.

She just woke up.

I'm scared for when she gets MORE!

What am I going to do with it?


She is talking a lot.

Sometime she is talking to us and it's not until much later that we figure out that she is actually saying something, for real.

Her frequent lingo:

"Oh Sheesh!" (she got that from me...ooops! She even knows the right times to use it.)
"Ets go!" (Lets Go)
"Et go!" (Let Go, she got this from me too. oops!)
"Mine!" (yep, from me. oops!)
"Cheese"
"Peese" (Please)
"Ut Oh" or "Oh Oh" (it changes sometimes)
"Uuuun!" (Done) and
"Fool" (Full). She sounds like she is saying fool when she says full, the other night at dinner we were trying to get her to say "I pity the fool!" She was pretty close a couple of times. She makes us laugh all the time.
"Dorsh" (George - as in Curious George)
"Boo." (Blue - as in Blues Clues)
"Peese" (Peaches - I know sounds just like Please, it's confusing)
"Pidy" (Pretty)
"Cah" (Car)
"Ocky" or "Sockies" (She only says the "s" at the beginning if there is an "s" at the end. Weirdo.)
"Pay" (Play)
"Boots"
"Shoos" (Shoes)
"Cackuh" (Cracker)
"Cukoo" She learned this from the Sound of Music. The other night at dinner she said it about 6 million times...that's ALL she said. The first 100 were funny, the next 100 were hilarious and the next 6 million were so annoying...which made it hilarious again. It was a trip.
"Puhpoo" (Poo Poo)
"Bit" (Belly Button) When you poke her in the belly she will laugh like the Pilsbury Dough Boy. And if she pokes you in the belly you had better laugh like the Pilsbury Dough Boy.
"Ahsigh" (Outside)
"Boo!" (that's to scare us, but she's really bad at hiding)
"Ankoooo" (Thank you! One of my favorites)

And I left the best for last.....

"Heby" (Heavy) She says it mostly when she is trying to carry our big fat binder type cook book. She likes to look through it. The reason why this is the best one is because she says it like she is putting all her effort in and whatever it is, it's obvious that she is exerting herself, even if it's a really light box of muffin mix.
She So Funny!
We love her!

I love listening to little kids talk. It's amazing what their little brains are trying to process. I miss her and I know the feeling about little girl bed-head.

Amazing - little people are so smart!

I miss her. I wish she would talk to me on the phone, but I guess none of these words are really "phone talk".

I'm so amused by the way she tries to use "Puh-poo" to leave Sacrament Meeting.
