To Do List (AKA TDL)

1. pack a weeks worth of clothes for Zach and I

2. paint toe nails
3. throw in finger nails while I'm at it
4. shave legs
5. clean the apartment
6. to the grocery store to stock up for Keller and Grandma
7. stop by the bank to make sure we have enough money for this oh-so-exciting adventure
8. re-type the super detailed list of Keller's "normal day" for Grandma that I some how lost on our computer (is that a sign that I am a little too OCD?)

but the most important item of business...
9. hug and kiss Keller as much as he'll let me, because I am starting to realize how much I'm gonna miss him

We leave Wednesday morning and I don't feel ready, but I'll get there!


coming soon

Two weeks from today we will be here...

Zach and I are heading to Oahu... a second honeymoon, just the two of us. Keller will be in good hands with Grandma and Shayna. And we will be enjoying the well deserved break... does that make me a bad mom??


catch up...

I know, I know... I am really bad. We have been so busy with the end of the semester, family visiting, and work, that I have totally neglected our blog. When I realized how long it had been since I last posted, I was too overwhelmed and didn't know where to start. So here is a re-cap of the last little while.

Keller's 1st birthday: it was a pirate theme with tattoos and eye patches, but since the only thing that Keller LOVES is my cell phone that's exactly what he got...

"Heeeeeeeeeeey, I'm 1"

Later that night after all the sugar, he realized what he had done.

Keller has become so active. He loves being outside. One afternoon he kept himself busy trying to get the mail for me. He must have seen me do it a few times and so he started begging for the keys. The next thing I know he is down the sidewalk towards the mailbox. Only a few more inches to grow!!

Oblivious to the world

"Hey mom, I think this is the wrong key."

By the way, Keller LOVES his Elmo slippers...

And his new summer hat...

Check out those molars!!
