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!

Goodbye September...until next year.


Marley made it through her first week of Pre-school and loves it.

Big girl going to school on the bus.
 We live one block away from her pre-school but they have a bus and Marley is so excited she gets to ride it. 
She is picked up first out of 17-20 kids and dropped off first. 
Perfect.


In the picture below, I was trying to get a picture of Marley sitting on the bus but I got a picture of my reflection. 
You can see the ghost of Marley by my right shoulder.
Big girl getting off the bus.



Crazy lady won't take a normal picture...she's like her Aunt Jill.
My two favorite below.

 Trying really hard to look "normal."


When she gets home she is so talkative and wants to tell me everything that happened. 
Sometimes I can picture exactly what happened.
Most times I don't have the faintest idea of what went on...besides bits and pieces.

What have I been doing while Marley is at school four hours a day, four days a week? 

Growing a baby!
I'm 11 weeks along. 

Our new baby is just the size of a fig and yet so demanding. 
Hormone haziness or shall I say craziness. 
My brain does not work.
I'm thoughtless....and tired.
Can't wait for the first trimester to be over...
and hopefully stop the mind melting madness and...
the nausea. 
 Please!
(soon right!?!)

With that complaining out of the way, I promise I won't complain again. 
Well, at least not until the last trimester. 
We are so grateful to be finally growing our family again. 
Marley will be four in April and that's about the time we're expecting little figgy pudding. 
What? That's not a good nickname? 
See, I told my brain is gone. 

And now a tribute to September.
Here is one of my favorite songs.
And the music video HAS to be one of the greatest music videos of all time!
I love it!
Perfectly psychedelic.
Funky costumes!
Handsome men.
The horns! I love the horns!
(as in trumpet, trombone and sax)
Classic disco.
It will make you want to dance!
Please enjoy.

Earth Wind & Fire - September


We love you all!

Loved the music video! I can't believe Marley's going to preschool. Why do you make it sound like a bad thing that Marley is like her Aunt Jill?

heather said...

Hippity, hip, hip, hippity, hip, hip hooray!!!!! We are so excited for you guys!!!!

Oh, that Marley. She's so awesome! We especially liked the "rockstar" look from her picture load. What a chica!! I can't believe how big she is.

And Earth, Wind and Fire? One of the best bands ever to live on the face of the earth!!!! "Like a seven forty seven!" I like them.

Hugs and missing you! xoxo

So excited about your pregnancy. Congratulations! Last night I was laying there trying to sleep and I thought of you and thought, "Did I have a dream about Becky asnd Home Depot?" then I remembered that no that was you that had the dream and posted about it long ago. :)

Figgy pudding is the perfect nickname. Ha. I totally giggled. She is looking so grown up. I think it's hilarious that since you can't tell her her friends name, maybe her dad can. What a cutie.

Congratulations, Becky! I'm so happy for you! I hope you're feeling better now (somehow I must have missed this post). I can't believe Marley is already in preschool- time sure goes by fast.
