A – Airport, good heavens we had a CRAZY time getting home for the holidays, we flew and it took us 12 ½ hours to get from Denver, to Salt Lake City. Our Engine didn’t work in our plane and anyways, it was a HUGE to do….took us forever, but Elli was a gem and we met some really nice people who helped us with Elli!
B – Breathing Treatments….we are back to breathing treatments at the moment at least one time per day! Poor kid, hopefully one day soon we’ll get over this cough, and be a “normal” if there is such a thing kid.
C – Carseat, Elli’s carseat is now forward facing and she LOVES it!
D – Downtown, we have been downtown quite a bit recently, and have had lots of fun with friends, especially at the Zoo and the Aquarium.
E – Elliana is almost 1, I can’t believe my baby is almost one! It’s crazy, she is doing great and is 21 lbs 2 oz and is 29 ¾ inches long! She is still a great baby and we are in the process of taking away the bottle, and the binki, except for at bedtime.
F – Formula, we no longer need it! HALLELUJAH! We are moving on to Whole Milk!
G – Gifts, Elli got lots for Christmas, her favorite is a doll from her grandparents (Grandma J and Grandpa B) and a ball popper from Grandma and Grandpa Duncan.
H – Happy New Year! If you didn’t get our Christmas card, and would still like one, post a comment with your address and I will surely send one your way!
I – I have been a slacker, I know…I am going to get back in the habit of posting at least once per week!
J – January, has just flown by and Tom has started Semester 2 of med school! He already took a midterm and got a B, go babe! We are so proud of his work and the sacrifices he makes for our family!
K – Killed me….I knew it would kill me to find something in the last 2 months that started with the letter K….okay, I cheated! :D
L – Laughter, we have had lots of good laughs, one of which will be in a video following this post, or rather before it, depending on how you look at it….Elli was walking around with a chair….or was it falling? Anyways…watch, it’s funny!
M – Mom…being a mom is hard work, and I really miss my Mom! Can’t wait to see her this weekend!
N – No…Elli’s new favorite word, she doesn’t want to eat something, she will shake her head and say NO. She must have gotten such an attitude from her dad… ;)
O – Office, we sure have visited the doctors office a lot, trying to figure out what is wrong with our little miss Elli! All is well, no worries!
P – Party, we are going to have a Finding Nemo Birthday party for Elli! She doesn’t know it, but we are very excited! She is getting a laptop like daddies for her Birthday…hopefully this will help her so she won’t play with his.
Q – Quit, I am going to quit drinking Diet Coke, for real! No gimmicks, no jokes, I am done! Check up on me…it’s going to be hard!
R – Rough, we got our loan money and had a rough couple of days going over the budget, but it’s done and hopefully we’ll survive till July!
S – Seeking a renter for our apartment, we are looking to move into a bigger place, no I’m not pregnant, but our place is just top small…coming from our place in Idaho Falls, to our place here, we just don’t have enough room!
T – Tubes, Elli had tubes put in her ears on Dec. the 10th, she is doing great! And I am SO happy we did that! She has been so much happier since we did that!
U – Umbrella, I thought I would be using one a lot more being here in Denver, but today it is beautiful, mid 50’s…no snow, Elli and I are going to go on a walk when Dad gets home!
V – Vacation, we had a great vacation at home, but are SO glad we are back home…it was great to be with family, but like Dorothy says, there is NO place like home!
W – Walking…Elli will walk, as long as no one is watching, but if you watch her, she gets too excited and falls down! She’s doing great though!
X – Xnay…lots of people told us not to do it, but we did and LOVE what we did! We pierced Elli’s ears, and it’s SO dang cute! I will try to get a good picture and post it tomorrow!
Y – Yes, for the first time in my life, I got pulled over by a cop! It was SO scary…here in Denver the year your plates expire is big and the month isn’t listed…or is small. In Idaho, it’s just the opposite, the month is big and the year is small! Well, mine says 02. The cop pulled me over and then realized my plates weren’t expired, but still asked for all my information, turns out I didn’t have my Drivers License on me. He tried to look it up but said he found I didn’t have a valid drivers license. I promise I do, and he ended up finding it…and let me go with a warning. Talk about SCARY!
Z – Zharius, is Elli’s new buddy! He’s the cutest little boy and his parents are very good friends to Tom and I. Elli says Zhar (ZA) when she is excited to see her friend! It’s so cute!

There you have it, possibly the longest post I have ever written, but hopefully you enjoyed the major catch-up in our life! We love all our family and friends and can’t wait to see you!
