Another "growing up too fast" post

Mostly pictures...

Here's Patrick doing yoga


Downward facing dog:

Playing with his feet today

And Patrick and his new sippy cup. He loves this thing! I got a different kind from Erin so she wouldn't get jealous, just like I did with the pacifiers, and it seems to be working pretty well.And Erin brought him his bear

And I've been trying to get a good picture of Erin for my mom to put in her frame to replace the one she has. This one is mostly good...

5 months and birthday randomness

5 months ago at this time, I was in labor. Where has the last 5 months gone?
The last couple of days I've been working on making a birthday calendar. It's been pretty fun.
And in doing so, I have found a couple of cool random birthday facts:

There are no empty months on my personal calendar. My two (living) children filled the two holes in BOTH sides. On the Cannady calendar, August, October, and December are empty, and on the Hill side January and April are empty.

On my calendar, May and July tie for most occupied months, with 4 birthdays each. Next year March will create a 3-way tie. (Thanks to Jenny. [I hope you don't mind my mentioning it. I figured that the only people who read my blog who would care are you, your mom, and Kim. And I figure your mom and Kim already know...])

Patrick created a 3-way tie for the most populated birthdate. And Jamesen broke it.
Patrick, Amber, and Sabin on the 25th, Jake, Nyssa, and Marcus on the 3rd, and Erin, Jared, Mark, and Jamesen on the 7th.

There's been a Cannady grandbaby born every year since 2006. Cora 5/2/06, Erin 6/7/07, Emma 5/14/08, Patrick 2/25/09, and Jenny's new baby sometime in March of 2010. And I want to have an 11/11/11 baby. So I think it's Kim's turn for 2012.

And the most random of all: I got pregnant with Erin, and a few months later Adrienne got pregnant with Marcus. Then Jenny got pregnant with Emma right after Marcus was born. The next month I got pregnant with Patrick. And a few months later Adrienne got pregnant with Jamesen. Well Jamesen is now 2 1/2 weeks old, and Jenny is pregnant again. (NOT going to get pregnant in April of 2010. I want an 11/11/11 baby, remember?)

I'm in trouble!

Patrick is starting to army crawl!

And, for those of you who don't know, I was recently put on thyroid medication. I've been feeling pretty wiped out lately (just NO energy at all!) so hopefully I'll be back to my old blogging self soon!

Erin wanted to go swimming

So Saturday morning Erin brought me her swimming suit. I sent her in to my room to tell her daddy that she wanted to go swimming (mostly as a way to get him to get up...since it was 10am).

She came out like this:And then found my board shortsAnd proceeded to try to put them on me.LOL!!!

Oh, and Patrick's found his toes!

Another week in pictures.

On Monday we went to the nature museum with Matt's family while he was at work. Erin liked the pretty rocks

On Tuesday we went downtown to meet Matt for dinner. We went to a Moroccan restaurant called the House Marrakesh. It was really good, though a tad expensive. But the experience was great.

We lounged around on cushionsAnd before the meal they had us rinse our handsAnd Erin danced to the music (which was really cute)

Friday we went with Kim and Sean to Boulder, CO to the Pearl Street Mall. There were musicians, and Erin got to play with a cool rock fountain thing (Patrick hung out).And we had lunchAnd then in the evening we went swimming
