Firemen PJ and Jelly Bean

There are a number of benefits to visiting small town America. One of them has to be a spontaneous and extremely hands-on visit to the local fire department. 

We just showed up and rang the bell in response a fireman they drove a fire truck out and proceeded to let my kids climb all over it. All of it. And push all the buttons they wanted to. All the buttons. 

My little firefighters!

Jelly Bean: Eleven Months

My baby is 11 moths old today! Just about a week ago she finally decided that she could walk all by herself. Her first steps were at nine months and at 10 months she was walk-me-around-with-your-finger-demanding little monster. Thank goodness we have been in the US staying with my family and friends because the walking supports have been numerous and willing (especially grandpa).

She now has six teeth, has grown out of all the clothes we borrowed for her just six weeks ago, has mastered "bye bye!", and has already started conquering playgrounds. 

She walked this entire distance. No big deal. 

And- of course - she is healthy. So healthy. 

Happy 11 months little lady. 

And with hugs for all those that this day is not a joyful day, missing someone they loved and dramatically lost in 2001. And with thoughts for the rest of us that lost a treasured illusion all those years ago.

And wishing for peace for this young generation in all parts of the world.

Adventures in Measuring

PJ is having a ball with his grandpa in Ohio. Grandpa is a jack-of-all-trades and PJ is learning lots of new skills, like measuring.

For the record, this door is VERY big. 

Grandpa's feet are not the right size.

My feet are not the same size and that is a "problem!" And his papa's butt is "big."

And PJ himself is "just the right size." Of course.

Jelly Bean: 10 Months

Our little girl is now 10 months old! She is standing on her own, took her first steps, has six teeth, and has finally met her American family. 

She's been having a grand time. There have been far too many new experiences to capture here, so here are some of the highlights so far.

Of course, food remains a highlight with this one. 

And keeping with her "I can do everything big brother can do!" trend, she started riding a bike. Of course with her favorite new person: grandpa! 

And chilling with granny and her big brother outside in the sun. 

She also got her to meet my aunt, my uncle, and my nana. I think they were all impressed with each other. 

Double digits people!

Living the Super Model Life

A few months ago I finally got myself and two kids to the hairdresser. The Mr. joined us later but of course the Jelly Bean required milk while I was in the chair. 

I channeled by inner Giselle and this happened: 

Cause we are in Germany this was NO Big Deal and for just a second there I felt glamorous.

Jelly Bean Has Six Teeth

She made us wait for them but here they are: six teeth all within a few weeks. Two on the bottom and four on the top!

Teeth are certainly making her life more enjoyable. Biting off hunks of her favorite food - meat - is significantly easier. 

Oh, and she's walking.

Sick Little Lady

Our little lady has spent the past five days feeling pretty icky. It started with a fever and some more complicated teething. 

Then she broke out in a nasty rash and got some nasty belly problems. I saw this face a lot. 

But then it slowly started to get better. Slowly. 

Thankfully today has been fever free and little lady is even eating regular foods. 

Looking adorable!
