Such a girl

So blogger is really irritating me and not letting me rearrange the pictures. *sigh* So first of, you have a picture of what Patrick had ditched his pacifier for. And then girly pictures of Erin.

This really scared me

Denver Man charged in alleged terrorist bomb plot.

This was here. I don't know, 9/11 really impacted me, but I was on the other side of the country at the time. It terrified me that it was on American soil, but I was still quite removed from it.

This is in my city.

And Matt rides the train every morning.

I'm still kind of wigging out about it.

I'm just amazed!

Working on his pincer grasp (he's behind where Erin was on this)

Actual crawling

And pulling up to standing!! >_<

We're leeeeeeeeeeeeeeeving, in our Rav 4!

So, tomorrow morning bright and early, we're setting out to drive to Michigan. Last time I did this it was 2004, and Matt and I weren't even engaged yet. So we drove from Midland, MI to Provo, UT all in one go, with a 2 hour nap at a truck stop (and barely missing a tornado, but not the tornado's horrid hail).

This time it'll be a little slower paced because 1) we can actually share a hotel room this time, and 2) we've got a 2 year old and a 6 month old this go around. lol

So, we'll be back on the 14th. If you get another blog post before the 15th you should be very excited. lol.

And, I leave you with this: Patrick's new favorite noise
