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!

The New Addition....

I know I never told anyone that I was expecting but, this little cutie arrived to our home on Tuesday, January 19,2010!
She's about
10 lbs. 6 oz.
25 inches long
Blue Eyes
Strawberry Blond hair (just like mine)
Ok, she is not ours, her mommy drops her off Tuesdays and Thursday and picks her up each evening.

But we love her!

Now this baby, on the other hand...
I got her car seat out to see if the base would work with our "New Addition" and it did! But, Marley loves to play in her old car seat and even likes us to strap her in, so we are keeping out for a little while. I didn't even have to adjust the straps...she still fits...just longer.

She also loves her old bouncy seat but she definitely has to share that with our "New Baby."
Marley loves being the mommy and calls all of her stuff animals "baby." She often says, "Pew! Poopee. Stinky." And then sniffs their tails. And then promptly runs for a diaper and the wipes.

So, that is my excuse for taking a little break from blogging.. We have been getting used to our "New Bundle of Joy."

Marlie has dark hair! That picture of her in the car seat looks just like pictures of Nathan when he was little. She is definitely Nate's child.

love it when they like to hang out in the car seat. just strap em' in and leave the room and they don't even realize they're stuck.

I totally almost kinda sorta believed you for a second... since you could get away with hiding a pregnancy, since you live so far away... then I thought - that's just too crazy. But you did have me there for half a second. :)

I LOVE that Marley's legs are sticking WAY out of the car seat. P.S. a friend of ours is naming their kid Marley. I thought that was cool.
