Watch the Tanzen be Perfect

Oh blogging world, I have sinned against you. A mother who has a new baby and then posts over a month later is unheard of in these days. So, I apologize and move forward. In no way does my lack of blogging reflect my interest in this new little pink bundle of goodness. We have so enjoyed having Tanzen around our home. She's the definition of a 'good' baby: eats well, sleeps well and is fun to look at.
Above is Tanzen a one month old. She spends her days eating, sleeping, getting her diaper changed and avoiding the bull who lives in the china cabinet named Henry. So far we've only had one traumatic trampling from the older brother. At her one month check up she measured 10 lbs. 7 oz and 22 inches.
I absolutely love it when babies sleep with their hands tucked by or under their chins (yes, chins. Tanzen has two right now). This is her at about 3 weeks.
Here she is at almost two weeks. We tried to get to church that day, but after a couple untimely messes in and out of her diapers, we stayed home.
And lastly, here Tanzen is on her Birth Day. She was born at 11:17 am on the 3rd of August. Her measurement were 7 lb 10 oz at 21 inches long. Her middle name is Margaret because she was born on my Grandma Margaret's 80-something birthday. I hope that just like my grandma she will be beautiful, loving, wise and fun.

Tiger time

Part of July

More pictures...less words.
The Rotary Gardens
The Lions
The Zoo
The Wading Pool
(What kind of mom is too lazy to slap on a swim diaper but not a swim suit?! This mom, that's who. Check out those long white legs though -miniature replicas of his daddy's legs.)

June is all about the outdoors. We usually go to the park at least once a day. Yep, some people go to Europe in the Summer...we go to the park which is just as fun and exotic, right?! I'll try to get some pics of our exotic park trips in July.
Henry found these sunglasses in a field and couldn't be more stoked about it. Seriously.
Matt and Hens planting our little garden. We have yellow and red tomatoes and some peppers. Hopefully they will produce some good fruits for us to be proud of.
Planting is serious business.


I can't believe I only took a few pictures this month, but it is what it is. I think we even went to the zoo for the first time and an airplane show, which would've made for some great pics.
While Willy was doing his surgery rotation, we went to Utah and Oregon for a few weeks. Here Hens is getting reacquainted with his Oregon roots. On this day, we had a lovely meal at David and Lisa's. We ate outside and it was very fun talking about eating outside :)
Henry sleeping on the plane ride back to Wisconsin. The flight was 10 times better going home than it was leaving. He slept almost the whole time. It beats a kid crying for 45 minutes straight, thats for sure. I don't ever want to travel without me hubby again!


Henry at almost 18 months. He's turned into a little man...with no hair still.
Cousins, cousins, cousins. When we took a trip to Utah, Henry had a great time with all of his amigos. They are all just so nice to him. Unfortunately, I didn't take as many pictures as I should have of all the events.
The prettiest bride of 2010. I had a blast at her wedding. Great time.
Henry broke his leg when we were going down a slide together in early April. He stopped walking and would tuck his leg like a wounded wing until we got a cast on it. It was hard for him to slow down, but he recovered quickly and is up and running again.

One, Two, Three Jump!

Henry's favorite game right now is to count to three and jump off of anything. His '1 and 3' sound exactly the same, kinda like "owne" but the '2' is pretty clear. He'd do this all day if my arms didn't get so tired.

Henry at almost 17 months. He's got green eyes and red hair...who new?!?! We sure do love this kid.
