14 month puddle jumper

From today. Just put her down to sleep. Gave her her meds (antibiotics) and she threw up on my shoulder about 5 min later. Poor thing has a 102 fever right now, two ear infections, diaper rash and is teething. Gave her some Tylenol and let her get some rest

Labor day weekend 2010

Katie took her first steps on Thursday night. A few more on Saturday. Went camping for a softball tournament in long beach washington and picked up 22 lbs of tuna at the docks on the way home for 1.89/lb

Dear blog

I think of you often. I find it so hard to keep up when most are on facebook though.

Things are good albeit busy. I'm working on becoming faculty, katies almost walking and ken is going crazy at sports and keeping us together.

Ps. I hate you app. You lost all my pictures I just spent so much time on. No wonder I don't post here as often. I hate work in vain.

Dear blog

I've been writing a grant. Sorry I've neglected you but get in line.

Here's a picture of Katie from tonight. She loves nectarines. She's almost 10 months and is a standing machine

Katie's first beet

...seeds. What started as a pacifying rattle quickly became a mouth full of small gravely seeds. Confusion for her. Panic for me. I think I pulled about 6 from the depths of her mouth.

Would you like some shiny nickels or this pointy pen?

Zoo Day

After the Rose Garden, we decided to head to the zoo -- a first for Ken and Katie. We went because we wanted to walk around but lacked the appropriate trail shoes. So off we went, only to be stopped by the $17 admission charge (each). Instead, we chose the family pass. For $79, we got free admission for all three of us for a year. Great choice for a possibly-screaming-at-any-time child. Especially since we just wanted to go in for a bit at 3:30 p.m.

Here are few from today:

The ocelot


Polar bears



The mongoose-viewing dome

The otters

All-in-all, I'd say she was a fan. I think we'll definitely be getting our money's worth.


Rose garden

Katies first visit. Roses are delicious
