Getting Even Bigger

"DoDaDo....I'm not doing anything!"

He's already tall enough to see on top of the table, and reach stuff near the edge.

He goes up the stairs really good, he just needs help remembering to turn around to go down.

He loves to watch the trash truck, recycle truck and mail truck go by.

I've been tagged!

The rules:

A. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning.
B. Each player lists 6 facts/habits about themselves.
C. At the end of the post, the player then tags 6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

Fact: I can't spell
I think spelling is a gift and you're either born with it, or you're not. My brother Chris and I can't spell to save our lives, but my brother Tony could spell anything. Without spell check I have to change all the words I can't spell to simpler ones that I can spell, I would sound like I have the vocabulary of a 1st grader. I get mixed up with vowels, is that an "I" or and "E", or is there one "T" or two. This area has always perplexed me because I love to read, but apparently reading big words and spelling them are two different things. In my defense I took 3 years of French in High School and could spell just fine in French. I blame the inconsistent English language!

Habit: Shut-up!
Ben and I both say this in place of "No way!" or "Get out!". We have been trying to break the habit and are getting a little better. After Ben told 3 year old Anna to shut-up, we've been making extra effort.

Fact: I hate socks
I purposely select shoes that will look cute without socks, they make my feet feel claustrophobic. I prefer bare feet, but wear flip-flops whenever possible. I only wear "real shoes" when necessary and it pretty much has to snow to get me to wear socks. The only downfall to this is that I'm constantly in need of a pedicure.

Habit: I cover my ears when I'm sleeping
I started putting the blanket over my ear when I was around 10. My Brother's friend from Costa Rica told me a story about a boy he knew who had a spider living in his ear. We always had a lot of spiders in our house and I was petrified one would move into my ear. I guess the habit stuck, I'm not really so scared a spider will find a home in my ear anymore, but after 18 years it feels weird not to have my ear covered.

Fact: I never loose my appetite
There could be a major disaster: earthquake, flood, death, hurricane, tornado.....pass the burritos. Maybe there isn't anything I like.....pass the pigs feet. Depressed....bring on the ice cream. Talk about: blood, throw up, amputation.....pass the nachos. I could even look at something disgusting and still be hungry: cadaver......mac and cheese anyone? I wasn't always like this, but then again I used to weigh 30 lbs less.

Habit: I type with my fingers when I listen to someone attentively
This is probably a product of over 10 years of secretarial work, but it annoys me. I happens at church, or when a teacher would explain a complicated theory. It doesn't happy so much anymore, maybe having a year off from the computer is helping. Then again Eli doesn't let me concentrate on much, so maybe I'm just not listening.

It seems like everyone I know has already been tagged, so enjoy.

Deck the Halls

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

It snowed for about 20 min on Saturday morning. This is just the kind of snow I like, short and sweet. I took Eli out in it and he was in awe. He's used to rain, but this really got him excited. Maybe we'll have some more snow in January.
