She’s One!

Saturday, May 30th, 2009


Yesterday we celebrated Carly’s first birthday with a lunch out at DQ and one of their ice cream cakes. What fun to see her enjoying the happenings and knowing that she was the girl of the hour.

Thanks, Taron fam for coming I’m thankful that we’re here and that Carly can have all of you as part of her life!

Check out my facebook album for pictures of the day :)

Deeder Says

Diederick, while sitting on my lap at the computer:

I’m a funny guy


Yeah, funny guy


I was putting up a new profile picture on Facebook. It was the best out of a few attempts to get Diederick, Carly and my face in one snap. Quite hard.

My laptop that has all my pictures isn’t picking up it’s wireless connection right now…
When it’s up again I have all kinds of blog post coming. :)

For now, here’s a couple pictures from this-time-last-year back in Vermont taken back when Deeder, Darren and I were awaiting the arrival of Carly.

One of Deeder’s favorite past times was playing in his sandbox on those long sunshiny days.


our new neighbors

Saturday, May 23rd, 2009


There are all kinds of houses being built around us these days. OK…”all kinds of houses” is the wrong way to put it. They are identical or close to it–embarrassingly resemblant of one another.
We marvel at how quickly the neighborhood is being built.Perhaps it goes so quickly because the workmen have the floor plan memorized?

This morning I noticed two insect nests going in on our porch, Deeder thinks they’re really cool and I guess that they are. It is amazing to watch the little wasp (pretty sure that’s what he is) move around and around his creation. A pity that we’re going to have to kill it.

Deeder pushed a chair up to the counter and asked me if I’d mind helping him grab a banana to eat.

I handed him one and within minutes he was back asking for another. Knowing my son’s skanty food consumption habits I knew better than to just give him a second. First I checked the trash can to see if he’d dumped the banana there, this has happened in the past. Then I checked on Carly, no he hadn’t given it to her as he often does with unwanted food.

So he got another banana. When I asked him if it was tasty he said, “Mmm…awesome, juicy.”

This banana did get handed over to Carly after just a couple Deeder bites and of course she had it down in no time flat. Carly adores bananas–no need to make banana bread around here, she has them all gone before they have a chance to get over ripe.
