I Hear Pink is the New Black

So this is what might happen if you go into labor and ask me to watch your son but do not provide any clothes for him because you are trying to rush to the hospital.

Don't worry, Tyson. Andy says he won't take away your man card.

All-Time Favorite Song

Search your mental iTunes library and give me one, only one, all-time favorite song. Not as easy as it sounds. Guilt creeps in as you push one favorite aside to make room for another to climb to the top of the leaderboard, as if these songs had feelings and they ache without your total commitment and affection.

Tall Dad + Tall Mom =

What do Uma Thurman, Maria Sharapova, Chamique Holdsclaw, Brooke Shields, Macy Gray, Venus Williams, and Lindsay Davenport all have in common (aside from the fact that they are rich and three of them are professional tennis players)? They are all members of the Over Six-Feet Tall Club. One more person joining the ranks?

This girl . . . in about 15 years.

If the whole "Double a Child's Two-Year-Old Height" thing is true (and according to her doctor it is), then imagine that Can-Can/Ballerina/Gansta outfit on a 6'1" rich, professional tennis playing actress that can carry a raspy tune.

Top Ten of 2011

I've been seeing a lot of Top 10 lists circulating in the blogosphere lately and I wanted to join in with a humorous Top 10 list of my own. After reviewing some of my old posts and determining that I was actually pretty funny at one point, I've become quite discouraged by the fact that I cannot come up with a single funny thing to make a list of (preposition at the end of a sentence--don't tell my husband).

So, to keep with the theme as much as my noncreative mind will allow, I've resorted to Our Top Ten Photos of 2011 (Consequently, this contribution will be rather copious.).

Here goes, in chronological order.

#1 Don't be fooled by the beauty of it. Living in Moscow has it's pros, but this is definitely not one of them. Needless to say, we're glad to be back in Boise, Land of No Snow.

#2 After little debate, I decided not to post a hospital picture of Norah. Rather, thanks to Katie Rice, we had a lovely welcome at our door upon return from our two-week stay in Spokane's PICU. No one was happier than Norah to finally be home.

#3 No words are needed here, except for the words, "I think my husband is really great!"

#4 One thing leads to another. In this case, picture #3 leads to picture #4: a paycheck. We are now contributing members of society.

#5 Does it ever end? Potty training, I mean.

#6 We figured this was our last Halloween avoiding Fairy/Princess costumes so we swung to the opposite end of the pendulum and dressed her as a man. "Oh, your son is so adorable." We heard that more than once that night.

#7 I prayed for a perfect baby and a perfect baby is what I got.

#8 Norah, Assistant to the Diaper Changer.

#9 Beautiful girl. Beautiful dress. Beautiful dad. Beautiful blessing.

#10 Juniper's great-grandparents (one of whom she is named after) are laughing because they're thinking, "Here, you take her back. We're going home now."
