Updates? Not really. We're just waiting around to see what our next big step is.

I think my kids are sensing that there may be some big changes soon. Sophie's still . . .

Sophie. Just a little more intense.

Ivy thinks she's grown up now.


She insists on walking everywhere, hates her car seat, and yells for panties every time I put a new diaper on her. We've had to resort to putting a pair of Sophie's panties over her pj's at night to pacify her.

And she isn't afraid of doing things that Sophie does.

(I tried to make this into a really fast slide show to simulate a flip book, but I couldn't figure out how. That would be cool.)

Steve's hanging in there. He's officially through going to classes, and hopefully his 12+ hour days will ease up while he finishes clinic over the next couple of weeks.

So, um. . . they have a little tradition at the school where the seniors run around the school in weird clothes during the last week of class. His class decided to do an 80s workout theme to this song.

Hence, the cut off shirt, "sweatband" (bottom of his shirt), and short shorts (which I saved you from. Although he does have nice, svelte caveman legs.)

Oh, and the mullet, which is actually MY hair. I still have my ponytails from when I chopped my hair in June.

I'm going a little nuts, too. Which is the only explanation I have of this:

I think I need a new routine.

Or a change of scenery.

Or some goals. . . . or somethin'.

Hey, just stopped by from MMB. I can definitely relate to the craziness--we've had some big changes going on around our house, too.

Sare said...

I can say this and you won't get mad (I hope)...that second to the last picture makes you look like a cross eyed fish...and totally altered your nose too. I laughed so hard!
Please don't go too far away...ever. Or at least make an annual trip here and we can all go to Monterey or something. I don't want to ever miss you :)

Kathryn said...

I second that one, Sarah! Please, please don't move far away! We love you guys too much!

That getup Steve is wearing makes him look like the Steve Perry from Journey, no? ;)

Liz - I scoured the Chicago area for Blair Chiropractors and there aren't any. We could be the first! Actually, he really needs to find someone to work for. :( I would love to live close to you, though!

Sare & Kathryn - Don't make me sad!!! Tonight I was driving in the car on the way back from Ormsby's and got really sad all the sudden. I think it's starting to hit me. And I don't even know if we're leaving!!

And yes. I think Steve looks like THE Steve Perry. Cuter, though. :)

That real hair mullet is hilarious! I'm sure you guys will find just the right place to land- even if it's where you already are.

And I LOVE Sophie's skirt in the photos! Too cute!
