In April/May, Brent and I are going on a vacation! We are going to Amsterdam, Germany, and Austria. My parents are kind enough to watch Ella- which I feel guilty about - but I won't after spending hours on an airplane and realizing if I had Eleanor with me how I'd want jump in an Amsterdam canal to escape the madness.

Airplane tickets were an amazing price, so we bit the bullet. We are planning on taking a Sound of Music bike tour of Austria- Brent recently watched the movie and has told me more than once how much he likes it- I'm a little giddy about it. Also- Amsterdam. It seems so laid back and cool. 

And, for your viewing pleasure... here are some photos of baby girl. She'll be 18 months in November. She loves:
-playing in the sink- filling and dumping out cups of water.
-drinking her bath water, and if that wasn't enough, sucks the water out of the bath mat when her bath water has drained out. I have no explanation.
-the adorable Japanese movie, My Neighbor Totoro, which pleases me because I love it too
-still takes a bottle to go to bed
-riding in her bike seat to the park
-brushing her teeth herself
-Veggie straws and fruit snacks
-waving and saying bye-bye. she'll give you a kiss if you're lucky.
-she even stomps when she throws a tantrum- makes me laugh every time


  1. My little great grand baby is growing up! And- I understand she pulls up the weeds in Belinda's garden...Well, I have more weeds than Belinda so please come to Charlotte when you can. Ah! but you are off to Amsterdam & Germany. I shall pack my bags and come with you. (YIPES! you say)

  2. She just gets prettier and prettier! She has excellent jeans. And I'm thrilled for y'all and your upcoming vaca!
