Skating and Not Killing Myself = Major Accomplishment

Andrew looking through the glass at his cousin Dominic. So cute.

Our little nerd baby. Amy and I made this Star Fleet Insignia for this shirt because it was just BEGGING for one. I don't even watch Star Trek. :)

My nephew and neice had a skating birthday party last week. I braved skating and didn't kill myself! I didn't even fall down! I was happy, and shocked actually.
We've been gone the last 3 weekends, and it's been great to see everyone, but I"m really looking forward to being home.
I love being home! :)

Just chillin' in his carseat, eating the strings on his coat.

Literally posing in front of the Christmas tree. It was hilarious.

And........eating the coffee table. Like only he can.

On a horse-driven carriage ride. It was chilly. Oops....should have worn some makeup.

Peek-a-boo with cousin Zach and Mama...oh yeah. And Catty the kitty.

I'm at my sister Amy's house and came across some photos she took in December. They were just too freaking cute not to share. He looks so big there, and he's 3 months older now!!!

Still No Internet

Things here are going well. Michael's finishing up his first year of law school, Andrew's trying to talk and walk at the same time, and I'm doing my home stuff. Andrew's started to take a little stuffed tiger to bed, and it's the cutest thing to see him pulling that thing along with him while he crawls in his little pjs. He's the cutest. Anyway, on to the post!

I really like to cook. I mean, a lot! I'm still too whimpy to attempt anything crazy, but there's something amazing about having a bunch of vegetables, spices, meats, etc and you can literally make THOUSANDS of different foods. I mean, that's amazing! I've been watching "The French Chef", Julia Child's tv show. She is totally hilarious. She's just so real, and it's really refreshing to see that after watching all the new cooking shows nowadays. For example, when the new guys take a bite of what they just made, they always close their eyes halfway, eat a half a forkful, and then say "Mmmmm. So creamy, delicious, and just cheesy." And you think, um......that wasn't exactly believable. Then you have Julia Child - picking at the meal throughout the preparation, saying, "Oh, it's just SO good!" and you think - Yeah. She LOVES food. She LOVES cooking. I don't know if anyone else knows what I'm talking about. But Julia is my sweet new buddy, and she makes me want to cook for my family. :)

Update Explanation

Our lives have been full of:

Michael - law school, family, law school, studying the law, studying his French

Karen- Andrew, actually practicing her violin, Andrew, Andrew, and Andrew

Andrew- clapping (today he clapped using one hand and one foot), talking like crazy, calling me Mama (I think legitimately), eating chunks of banana, standing on his own, walking/running with assistance, charming strangers, and weaning himself. Oh, and drinking from a cup. No sippy cups for this kid.

He has more to report than us. Go figure. :)
