On the way to Children's hospital Friday, Bethany breaks out in song. Oh...it's not your traditional toddler song like Itsy-Bitsy Spider.

We fill out papers...
Every now and then it is our turn to see 1 of the members of the team.
When we aren't seeing one of the members...we....wait........
Sometimes we enjoy the fishes......
Or cuddle Dad...but overall....we....waited...
In all we saw 8 doctors/specialists: a ear, nose, throat; a speech pathologist; an audiologist; a psychologist; a craniofacial plastic surgeon; a nurse; a CT Scan technician; and a neurologist.

Unfortunately, we aren't before anymore. We are in the after. You know, after the virus came and made our poor lil' girl feel like crud. After, it has been wreaking havoc for the past 3-4 days. After, Bethany had to miss the last three days ever at the sitters. Which is extremely sad for me. And after a few days of these pathetic looks and horrific whines...
Soon, I am hoping we will get back to the way things were before...

Coke Zero is my number #1 drink these days.
I just can't get enough.It appears that I am not alone in that sentiment.
Evidently Owen needs a little afternoon pick-me-up.
I need to remember to put my drinks on the counter instead of table...unless I want his sloppy seconds to be a habit.

What do you do when your 1 year old is grouchy?

We are still here. Sorry about the two week hiatus. We've been...well you know...busy. You'd think with the school year ending in a week, we'd be slowing down. It seems to have the opposite affect on this household. That is rather unfortunate for us.

A picture story about Owen's First Birthday!
When he woke up on the morning of his first birthday, he was greeted by his crazy mom and a camera!
He promptly got dressed and drank his milk. Then he was set down next to his overly expressive, sweater-obsessed sister for a birthday picture that he couldn't be less interested in.
After a breakfast out with Mom and his sister and a full day at the sitter's, Owen, ahem...really Bethany, opened his birthday presents from Mom and Dad.The presents included a cool tractor, pajama's and
a big box to sit on. Sitting on presents was proven to be far more fun then opening presents, ya know.
Eventually, they opened the big present (which was a shelf system for his bedroom) and we headed to Culver's to eat dinner with both sets of Grandparents. Bethany and Owen lucked out, as the Balloon Guy was there and made them some new friends.
After dinner...it was back at home with the Milles Grandparents. We posed with the cake...cause that is what you are supposed to do on your birthday.
Proving once again to take after his sister, he grabs his birthday cake.
Not wanting to make his mother aware of the grabbing-incident, Owen tries to hide the evidence before she catches on!
Once settled in the high chair, he was a lil' timid with his first piece of cake.
That timidness didn't last all that long. And he soon devoured the
It was such a blast celebrating Owen's first birthday! I hope he had a fantastic day...I know that all of us enjoyed spoiling him rotten on his day! :O)

Perhaps it is just a phase....
You know...the phase you go through while staring at cameras. I think it is an unavoidable phase...like tantrum throwing, tooth fairy believing and thumb sucking.
This phase, though, is the one where you give the biggest, cheesiest smile humanly possible.
I will take that phase over some others (like trying to stand on the sit-n-spin) any day!
Yeah...it wouldn't be too bad if this phase sticks around a while. It's a pretty adorable phase, afterall! :O)
