I almost never post anymore. Sorry about that. Owen and Ady keep my going most of the time nowadays.
Let's see, whats new.
Ady spent nearly a month with my folks in IN. She loved every second of it and I think she is having a hard time adjusting to being at home again and having to share and be nice to Owen. I can't take my eyes off of her when Owen is near.
Owen will be a year old in about a week. I can't believe it! This last year has just flown by!! He is finally cutting teeth. I think his bottom two teeth will pop through at about the same time. He refuses baby food now and will eat (at least try) anything we have.  He loves fruit. Any fruit that I give him disappears very quickly! We've switched him to whole milk but he probably wont be on that for long since he has plenty of fat. We will have a party for him on his actual birthday, next Saturday. Nothing too special, just having some friends over for cake and burgers on the grill. We all know how much everyone loves to see a baby smash cake! At least with Owen we can strip him down and do it outside!
Ian and I recently celebrated being married for 2 years. Ian suggested that we go up to the cities for a night and I jumped at the chance! We stayed in a hotel downtown and even got upgraded to a corner room! It was a really nice room too. We ate at a place called Fogo De Chao and it's basically a meat lovers heaven. 17 different cuts of meat and it's all you can eat! It was excellent!
Ian is working hard and getting ready for his first qualifier at the end of the month. I'll be glad when that's over. He also has a grant to write and a presentation to give.
We are hoping to go on a vacation this Decemebr but that will all depend on finding someone (ahem..grandparent) to watch the kids since Ady will be in school and working things around Ian's schedule since he wants to have his thesis in by the end of the year. Crazy stuff and it's all coming up so quickly.
there really isn't much new with me. I'm working only 2 days a week now but will be back to full time come fall. It works out pretty well. I'm home during the summer so we are free to run around and do stuff and then in the cold nasty winter, I'm busy with work.
Thats about all. I"ll leave you with some pictures of the kiddies!
