We have spent hours and hours painting and drawing in the last few months. Chloe is obsessed with drawing circles, triangles, and hearts. Doug and I are amazed at how much her dexterity has improved in such a short time. She got so excited a few days ago when drew a triangle. As soon as her Poppa got home, she ran over to the door and grabbed his hand, said "mon Poppa", led him over to her tablet, and showed him the triangle. She always asks me to draw her a picture of "Wadi"(Levi) and "Wyra"(Ira), those are the names she gave them, which is funny, because she can say Levi and Ira, but she prefers Wadi and Wyra. We have enjoyed drawing with her too. It is very therapeutic to spend the evenings drawing with our little girl.
Okay, I have hesitated to post about this, because nobody likes it when someone brags on their kid all the time, but I cannot resist any longer. So here I am bragging on our girl.
Chloe wants me to write her name ALL the time now. When I begin to write her name, she will spell it to me, C-H-L-O-E.

This morning Chloe and I were cutting up a few kiwis for breakfast. Chloe picked one up and said "hairy". I said "yeah, kiwis are kind of hairy aren't they?". She looked off to the side (that is her latest thing, she walks all around the house saying ummm, and always looks over to the side when she says it) and said "ummm like Poppa!". We both broke out in laughter and I agreed with her that kiwis are hairy, like her Poppa.

It has been nearly six weeks since I have blogged. We have been so busy with life, life, and more life. I was in a fever-pitch finishing up my Master's Degree, then we had a 30th birthday/graduation party for uh-hum.........me, and somehow I managed to invite 53 people to our house (not the smartest idea ever). Of course we had to finish up a million and half home improvement projects before the blow-out. We decided the weekend before that the half-bath, a.k.a "man-hole" needed to remodeled, so we were tiling until the wee hours to get that finished. Doug pulled another one of his signature all-nighters. It looks amazing now. Not the smelly, yucky, grimey "man-hole" it used to be. Hmmmm, maybe I should come up with a better name than "man-hole", sounds really bad, and looks even worse in print. Anyway- the party when very well, we all had a great time and ate waaaaaaaaaaay too much food. About 24 hours later I left for a five day cruise to the Bahamas with my Mom and my sister in law. So, I am back now and my goal all week has to been to blog. Then, we all came down with the flu from hell. Seriously, it was up there in the top 3 worst flu bugs ever. We are finally starting to come out of it (hopefully), so here I am playing a little game of catch up in the blog world.
I think I will start out with an adorable photo of who else? Chloe.
A little, o.k. a lot blurry, but I still like it.
And, now I can't get any of the other photos to upload, (sigh).......................well, I guess I am going to post this and try again later.
