A lot to catch up on

It's been a busy week. We'll see how much Seth lets me get done right now. We got some more smile pictures. I love his little double chin in the first one.

A friend of mine came over last weekend and took a whole bunch of really cute shots of Seth with her nice camera. We're getting those ready and I'll post them as a slide show soon. If anyone wants a copy of any of those photos, I'll have them posted on and you can get them. When the slideshow is on here, they'll be posted there.

Maya had her dance recital last weekend. She did a really great job. Girl loves to dance. We have the dance music on CD for Maya to practice with. When she practices, Luke is right there next to her copying her every move (as well as a 3-year-old can). It's really funny. I'll have to try and get that on video.

On Monday, Maya got a really cute haircut. Here's the before:
and the after:
I love it! She loves her neck not being hot anymore. The only drawback is she doesn't have a ponytail to hold her swim goggles strap in place while she swims.
Yesterday morning, I was watching my friend's boys. One of them loves to birdwatch. Good thing too, because otherwise I never would have noticed the ducks in my trees. That's right. ducks in my trees. I can't recall seeing ducks hang out in trees before.
Click on the pictures to make them bigger. You'll see the ducks with the bright orange beaks. My camera's zoom sucks. Everything looked tiny and far away in the camera even though the trees in my backyard are not that far away from my house.
Tonight, Matt and I are going to see "Wicked" with a bunch of friends. I'm very excited, though leaving Seth caused a lot of anguish. Not because I don't want to leave him home for the evening. I'm just worried my babysitter will be miserable if he cries and won't go to sleep. I'm not sure if he'll take a bottle. Hopefully he'll fall asleep within an hour at his usual bedtime and she won't really even have to deal with him. I'm sure it'll be fine.
