Tagged ~ Memory Loss Meme

I was also tagged by Natalie for this fun meme (go ahead and make fun of me, but I don't know what a "meme" is!). Here's what you have to do. You need to open your sixth photo folder, and open the sixth photo, and you need to post it. And you need to hope that you remember what it is!!!!

This picture was taken in my apartment when I lived in Albuquerque, NM for 3 months while doing a fieldwork rotation at a therapeutic horseback riding clinic for OT school. Please notice the boxes used as an entertainment center and DVD tower/bookcase! The futon that you see on the right side of the picture served as our couch by day and my bed at night! You might be wondering what I'm doing with my pink tool set! I was making a nailboard for the kids at the clinic to stretch rubberbands over to make shapes, letters, numbers, etc. to strengthen their hands. Not too exciting, but this picture sure brings back memories!

Okay, I guess I'll tag Kelsey, Bobbi, and Leah! Be clean with the pictures, girls!

Tagged ~ 7 little facts about me (us)

Okay, so I've been tagged by Rachelle and Delanie to share 7 secrets or facts about me. I'm going to include Chris in this because I shouldn't be the only one to share my secrets! Just kidding, I think I'm actually pretty boring because the secrets/facts that I thought of aren't really all that exciting! Sorry, but here goes:

1. Chris and I met on a blind date. We were engaged within 5 months of dating, married within 9 months of being engaged, and had our first baby within about 10 months of being married!! No, we're not trying to break records!!
2. In the 2-1/2 years of knowing each other, Chris and I have been to 7 states - our goal is to go to all 50 states together. I have a personal goal to go to at least 5 of the 7 continents and I've been to 4 of them (North America - obviously!, South America, Europe, and Africa). I'll let Chris pick which of the other three that he'll take me to someday!!
3. I, like Delanie and apparently most of the other girls at work, also count stairs as I go up and down them and I don't like when there are exactly 13 - it bothers me, like it's a bad omen or something!!
4. If we have a girl, her name will be Sadie Julianne - now that you know, don't anyone take it!! We got that name because one day Chris' dad was talking about the dog that Chris had in college and her name was Sadie and it stuck with me! I'm not too happy to tell people that if we have a daughter, she'll be named after a dog, but that's what makes this a secret!!
5. I have a brown speck in the iris of my left eye. It makes my sister's eyes water if she catches a glimpse of it! It's small, but because she knows it's there, she notices it!!
6. I like to put peanut butter on hot dogs and on bologna sandwiches (I get that from my dad) and everyone in our family likes SPAM - don't knock it until you try it! My dad worked for Hormel so we're very proud of SPAM! Kelsey, I know you'll appreciate this one!!
7. I apparently like to end sentences with two exclamation marks instead of one. Go ahead, go back and check numbers 1-6!!

Okay, now I guess I will tag Bobbi and Leah! No pressure, girls, but it is fun!!

Our big little guy!

Sorry it's been awhile since I've posted. Micah is now 3 months old - 2 months adjusted for all of you therapists out there! He's smiling, laughing, "talking," and trying to play more with us! He's also awake A LOT throughout the day. We've used words such as squirmy, feisty, and nosy, and those words couldn't be more true as he grows older. This picture was taken at 4:00am! Micah typically wakes up somewhere between 2:00 and 4:00 am to eat, but mostly to play! He laughs and squeals and watches TV as Chris or I will try to get him to go back to sleep, mostly so we can go back to sleep! We love this picture, though, because it shows what a wonderfully fun and energetic baby we have!
