12/17/2010 - Patterns

I was so proud of Anna Claire for understanding the concept of "patterns", so I wanted to post this video. She must have learned about them at's always fun to find out something new that she knows!

08/06/2010 - July & August Album

The July album is complete and we've started an August album!

07/30/2010 - Mommy and Me Dance Recital

Well, I wasn't sure how I would feel about sharing this video but despite a slightly rough start on figuring out which way to sway and my watch coming off in the middle of it, I think it went pretty well! My favorite part is during the swaying in the beginning when Anna Claire is really getting into lifting her legs! I think in the end she got more out of the class than I thought she was!

07/09/2010 - Chick-Fil-a's New Poster Child


The other July pics are in the album!

06/14/2010 - Love that Belly Laugh

Here's a short clip of Anna Claire cracking up over me trying to open a jar of jam!

04/16/2010 - Anna Claire's 1st trip to Wesleyan - oh yeah, and my 10 year reunion!

Last weekend was my 10 year college reunion (yes, I feel very old!). My mom met me in Macon and took Anna Claire back with her to Columbus. I had a great time seeing old friends, hangouts and traditions!

This picture is very special to me because Anna Claire is standing in the spot where Eric proposed!

There are more pictures from the weekend in the April album. (April has been a very busy month!)

03/28/2010 - Big Girl Bed

We put Anna Claire's toddler bed together today. So far she seems pretty excited about it but stay tuned to see how she sleeps in it tonight!

Here is a slide show of the pictures that we took for her birthday invitation.

03/04/2010 - You make me happppy when skies are grape!

Lately it seems like we've been doing more video than pictures since Anna Claire is in that really fun stage where you never know what she's going to say! Here is a video of her singing "You are my Sunshine".

02/14/2010 - Happy Valentine's Day!

Anna Claire has really enjoyed celebrating Valentine's Day this year. She had 2 parties yesterday (one at our class at the Creative Discovery Museum and one at her school). She helped me color and put stickers on her Valentine's and enjoyed putting them in her friend's mailboxes. She definitely has our heart :)

The other Valentine's Pictures are in the Feb album on the right.

01/23/2010 - I'm Proud of Me!

Anna Claire is at that age where she's constantly saying new things and making us laugh! She said something the other day that I wanted to make sure we got on camera. We're not actively trying to potty train her yet but she gets to sit on the potty at school if they go to change her and she's dry, so we've been doing that at home some too. This video starts right after I ask her if she had gone to the bathroom on the potty...

01/16/2010 - First "Trim"

We took Anna Claire to get her first haircut at G.G.'s salon last Saturday. Although, we barely cut anything off so it was more like a first "trim" rather than a "haircut"! We didn't want to lose any curls so G.G. just cleaned up some of the baby hair underneath. Anna Claire did great! She loved sitting in the big chair and we only had to keep her entertained for a few minutes!


...the 5 minute trim...


01/15/2010 - Pajamas

Since it has been kind of cold lately we've spent a lot of time hanging out inside in our new pajamas. I've added some pictures to the January album.

01/08/2010 - New Year's Resolution:

Update the pictures on the BLOG more frequently! Check out the January pics on the right!

A Movie from Our Disney Trip

I put together some of our favorite clips from our trip into a little 5 min. movie. Enjoy!

12/25/2009 - Merry Christmas!

We had a great Christmas and Holiday Season this year! We were so fortunate to have time to spend with family that we don't get to see that often. We are so blessed!
