Construction Zone

Her first balloon!
Making herself "pretty" with the comb.
You may have noticed some changes in the blog over the past few days. I had some technical difficulties (again) but I think I've got it figured out. I hope you like the new look! I'd love to hear what you think.

Besides the new face on the blog, it's been pretty boring around here. Just working and hanging out. We're trying to save money in this wonderful economy so there has been a lot of family time at home. The more we save the sooner I get a new kitchen!! I'm thinking 2-3 years :(

Vegas, Baby!

This weekend two of my co-workers and I were sent to Las Vegas to attend a conference on limited OB ultrasound. It was rough but i made it through :) This was the view from my poolside chair while I "studied."
The first night Julie and I just walked around and checked out the sights and had a wonderful Italian dinner and the second night we went to a Cirque du Soleil show Zumanity. It was a great show but not for the faint of heart!! Overall we had a great time and we even learned a little at the conference ;)

The casino at New York-New York

The amazing water show at the Bellagio
Last weekend Dad came down to get Mom who had stayed with us the week before, and while he was here he put up new crown molding in our living room, dining room and porch. As you can see Cody "helped" and my uncle Gary came and donated his time and talents as well. As usual my Dad did a great job and it looks great!
And of course a few pics of Fin!! She escaped from me after a bath. She's a fast little girl. She is still cruising but still not ready to let go and try to walk on her own. She has also developed quite the temper. If I tell her no she screams and cries or if I'm eating something she begs and whines until I give her some. Can the terrible two's start at 12 months?? Luckily the tantrums are pretty quick and then my sweet little girl soon returns. She also started going to day care last week and she loves it! She loves playing with the other kids and we are overall very happy with Grace, our day care provider.

And more of my beautiful naked baby!
