August 20, 2004: Playing House

There's a new freezer in the basement. And a new freezer means only one thing.

Three words: Big Cardboard House!

August 17, 2004: 9month check-up

In the time it would have taken for us to have another baby (Don't get any ideas, Mom-mom!), Collin and Lilah have grown a lot. Collin is now 18 pounds, 9 ounces, 28 inches tall, and Lilah is 17 pounds, 13 ounces, and 27.5 inches tall.

Both kids (they won't really be babies for long) are quite healthy, quite loud, and teething up a storm.

Also, we started day care recently, and are adjusting nicely, with the exception of a bit of a napping problem. Apparently, it's hard to sleep mid-day when there's so much fun to be had.

August 17, 2004: One Small Step for Lilah . . .

A giant leap for Lilah-kind!

Actually, three steps, unassisted from Mommy's hand to Daddy's. She's taken a couple of unassisted steps here and there over the last couple of days, but they've been sort of directionless, and always ended in a plop, but today, as Lilah was holding onto Mommy's hand, and Daddy's hand was a foot or so away, she conquered the gulf with her first successful walk. A big day indeed.

And now for some cute pictures of the kids wearing outfits that Mom-Mom and Pappy brought back from Canada.

August 12, 2004: In Memoriam

We are sad to report that Collin and Lilah have lost a grandmother. Mirene Standaert Boerner passed away on August 7, 2004 after a nine-year battle with metastatic breast cancer. What we and our children have lost is immeasurable.
