Did you go to music today?
No, we didn't. Umm just a second. Miller, let me get your booger. Hhhh. My fingers are too big for her holes.
I almost had another wreck on the way home from preschool today laughing so hard. (for those of you who don't know, the kids and I were in a little fender bender over the weekend. We're all okay- and so is the 15 year old that drove right off the interstate and in front of us!)
The points of her first tooth are finally showing their pearly little heads, so today we brought home some Wagon Wheels from the grocery store. Let's hear it for solid food, portable snacks!! Next to holding their cup on their own, this is one of the most liberating things from baby hood for me. She can entertain herself with some food for a few minutes. Now we can take her to a restaraunt and not have her melt down out of bordom because there's nothing for her to do while we eat. (Wilson had about 6 teeth by now, so I didn't realize how nice it was to be able to hand him a cracker and continue my dinner conversation!) Looks like she really likes them. I wasn't sure she would because she usually makes a terrible face when we put any "real" food in her mouth. She ate these up!! Yea!
I think I've posted pictures before of how Miller bounces in her Johnny Jump Up with her head hanging out the back, but it's much funnier in action. There's a little bit of it on the video below. She's a bit of a diva and as soon as she sees a camera she stops what she's doing and focuses on it. (Note how she doesn't see me at first and then when she does she stops, spins back, and gives a big ole grin- what a ham!) The video's a little long because I was trying to not look at her for a little bit to see if she'd start up again. Alas, she did not- she knew the camera would be coming back to document yet another mundane part of her life for her fans.
A note about the title of the post:
Before Miller was born, Wilson called her Shu-Shu. Quickly after her arrival he switched to "Baby Priss"- neither of us has EVER called her that, it's a Wilson original!!

Last Friday was Wilson's first day of 3 year old Preschool. He got camera shy that morning and in my only clear picture of him he looks quite pitiful and like he's being tearfully drug off to a lion's den. Rest assured, he is "so exciting" about his new room, teacher, and friends. He has gotten in the car absolutely bouncing off the walls both days with a mouth full about what all went on that day. New for him this year are going 3 days a week, music class, Show and Tell on Friday (Rocko, the stuffed dog that also went to big brother class, went for the first one) and that we are carpooling with a buddy that doesn't live too far from here. It's always nice to have a friend to walk down the hall with in the morning & wait with in carpool line in the afternoon!
He was doing his best to get back in the house during the photo session. The only way I got the one blurry picture of him smiling (which was actually the mood of the morning) was to have the camera on him and say something funny (I'm sure it involved an animal wearing some kind of underwear) and wait for him to turn around laughing. GOTCHA!!

Well, that's what excited me today. I'm gushing over a browser button. I'm a nerd. A nerd with a very easy to follow, comprehensive Christmas list. I'm a nerd.
Thanks for reading. I promise I won't post again without pictures and funny stories about my kids.
