This and That

Here are just a few updates on us:
It snowed her in Albuquerque last Sunday all morning. It was really pretty coming down. It made me so happy to be out of the Phoenix heat. Although it didn't last long (one day), it was still nice to have some snow. This is a picture of the snow coming down in our backyard.  Blake thoroughly enjoyed watching the snow come down. He didn't call it "snow" but "snowman". It was pretty cute. We never did get out to play in it though. Dang! I baked cinnamon rolls this morning and this is Blake thoroughly enjoying them. Yes, he licked off all the frosting and then hardly ate any of the bread part. So much like his daddy!
Blake is loving the house. He often will run laps up and down the house. I think he loves the room he has to play. He has also become very good at cleaning up his toys (surprise, surprise) because there are actual places to put them now.  Kalli still continues to amaze us by how well behaved she is. Her getting upset is pretty funny because she barely whimpers so she doesn't get a lot of attention when she cries. She has been sleeping through the night since she was 3 or 4 weeks old. She goes from about 9 pm til about 7 am. It's so nice! 
I took her in yesterday to see the helmet lady (I don't know her title) and she told me Kalli is doing really well. The sides of her head that the helmet is working on has already gotten bigger which is great! We let her have the helmet off for about 3 hours a day (one in the morning and two at night). Poor little girl gets heat rashes from the helmet, but her little head is starting to get used to that. 
On another note, we are almost completely unpacked. The problem is that we have a garage and have put the boxes out there and they have become out of sight out of mind. So, we are still kind of working on that.

I am glad to hear things are going well in Alburquerque. I can't believe how big Blake looks in that picture. He is starting to look more like a little boy then a baby. I love Kallie's dress. I wished we lived closer so that I could meet her.

That picture of Kalli is ADORABLE!! We can't wait to meet her in person. I am still amazed she sleeps from 9pm to 7am. WOW!
