New Pictures Posted

We've posted new pictures of the kiddos from Halloween through Easter. Hope you enjoy them!

Other updates:
  • Nate now has his two front teeth (both on the bottom).
  • Nate figured out how to inch forward today. He's not crawling yet, but he figured out how to move forward by doing an army crawl/inch worm manuver.
  • The girls are in a ballet/tap class, and enjoying every minute of it
  • We got new floors
  • Ma is now 95 years young (but you didn't hear it from us!)

Welcome Baby Nate!

Nathaniel Jacob Shaw (Nate) was born July 21 at 10:39AM. He weighed 6 lbs 9 oz. We finally are settling in a little bit and finally have managed to make time to post pictures. You can view them here.

He is such a sweet baby, even though he wakes up every 2 hours to eat. We call him our "Little Bird" :-)

The girls love their baby brother. At church, they were asked what they thought of him, and they responded "He's beautiful!" Both Lila and Zella will constantly ask "Where's MY baby!" when they forget where he is. But, as expected, they are acting out to get more attention themselves.

Circus Time!

Today we took the girls to the circus for the first time. The girls were very good, and had a great time from the look of their faces. But, like their Daddy, they didn't like the clowns getting too close.

In case it's not obvious from the pictures, we are pregnant and having a boy at the end of July.

The pictures are posted here.

Is 2010 Really Over???

Absolutely crazy. 2010 is now over, and we didn't make any posts since June. June!!

Needless to say, we don't know where the year went. The girls have grown a bunch since June, and we now have pictures online to prove it!!

More Pictures Posted!!

The girls started Pre-School last week. Today was the first day that they didn't have any problems going in; coincidentally it was also the same day that they first wore their uniforms.

They seem to be enjoying school, but Mommy and Daddy are having issues with worrying. This is the first time we've left them with people we don't know well. On top of that, this is a brand new school.

On the plus side, the teachers say that we have very smart kids. We definitely have to agree. :-)

Other things that have been going on:

Zella has been a Mommy's girl the past couple of months. Zella does not let Daddy help her if she can have Mommy instead. From what we have read, this is just a phase and one day she will be a Daddy's girl.

We took a vacation, and went to Colorado to visit Dustin's Aunt & Uncle. We had a great visit, and the girls loved seeing the mountains, and especially the SNOW! We have more pictures that Grandpa took, and will post them soon.

Their vocabulary has grown exponentially since we got back from our vacation. They can and will repeat anything and everything they hear. They'll even surprise you that they know what something is called, or what they are thinking.

Lila REALLY enjoys Dancing. She loves to do a little dance kind of like a cross between old square dancing and a Irish jig. I know, hard to imagine, I'm sure, but it's even harder to describe. It's her own dance. It's "The Lila Dance" (at least she doesn't dance like her Daddy) :-)

Zella also enjoys Dancing. She does more of a "Jump Around" style Dance :-0 (Jump, Jump, Jump Around!)

They do the best Lion/Dinosaur/Bear roar impression. Not sure how to imitate it with words, so I won't try. Just ask sometime when they are around :-)

I guess that's about it. Somehow, it's already midnight. Again. Time is definitely passing too fast.
