One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

A day for the baby book...

Today is a very important day -- my big guy has his first tooth!! His upper central incisor finally popped through. I know -- weird tooth to get first -- but neither of my kids pay attention to what they are supposed to do or when they are supposed to do it -- so why would they pay attention to what the baby books say??

We knew the tooth was coming... you could see it trying to pop through for the last couple weeks. Noah also had extremely red-rosy cheeks for a stretch right around Christmas time. My mom swears that both my brother and I had rosy cheeks when we were cutting teeth.

In other news... we have a very cool new toy in our household. We purchased a Sony Universal Remote to work our tv, dvd player, vcr, stereo components, etc. I was sick of having the clutter of 4 different remotes laying around, nobody knowing how to use them, etc. Travis is busy programming the remote to do all sorts of cool things -- he is doing a great job. Some of the reviews talk about it being difficult or nearly impossible to program... but I figured that two engineers should be able to figure it out :) Actually, Travis has pretty much done it all on his own... he won't admit it, but I think he is enjoying the process of figuring it all out. I am just happy to have such a smarty-pants husband :)

Yay for Noah's first tooth. How funny that we were just talking about that yesterday and wala (sp??), it appears.

I struggle working my 2 remotes, I am not sure if I could handle the universal one. Josh has looked at all in one remotes, but I figure...why invest until our house sells and we move :)
