This picture is an homage to Elise's Aunt Laura. When Laura was a baby she drooled and drooled like crazy while she slept. Elise normally doesn't drool... but on Aunt Laura's birthday, the sleepy baby drool seeped out. Happy Birthday, Laura. You get baby drool as a present! February 26th:

Elise likes to play with laundry baskets. February 27th:

Day 345: The Great Baby Explosion!

February 17th was a big day for our family. There was a baby explosion!

Here is Elise saying, "What do you MEAN?! I'm not the babiest anymore?!?!?"

My sister Sara delivered her first child, sweet baby James, in the morning on the 17th. He weighed 6 lbs 13 oz and was as healthy (and cute!) as could be:

And I had my first ultrasound for Elise's little brother or sister:

That's right! I'm pregnant again! Right now we're calling this one "Dinky" until we know if it's a boy or a girl. The pregnancy is going well so far-- a lot less morning sickness than I had with Elise. Dinky was a bit of a surprise and the doctor has been unable to determine just how far along I am right now, but we think that the baby will be born some time in October.

Hooo doggies, I'm behind on posting pictures! We've been so busy lately. Well, time to catch up...

Elise is very good at knowing her body parts. She knows head, ears, nose, mouth, tummy, toes, and sometimes eyes and knees. Here she is showing us where her head is, February 13th:

Here Elise looks a lot like pictures of her daddy that I've seen from when he was little. A Valentine's Day daddy smile:
