Nanny Cam

For my birthday I told my brother all he needed to get me was a free night of babysitting. He came on Wednesday so Reid and I could grab dinner and a movie. When we got home and he was walking out the door he said, "Be sure to check out the video we made."

Apparently right after we left he started doing this with Sally. He's saying "dancing dancing dancing dancing..." He said she was laughing even harder before he started recording! How fun would it have been to record the whole evening of him babysitting?!

Thanks Joe Joe for watching Sally, it's great knowing she has so much fun with you when we're not around. You're welcome to come back anytime!

Self Reflection

After Sally's afternoon nap the sun (when it's out) shines perfectly for her so she can play and wave at her shadow! So cute and innocent!

We went shopping last weekend. After walking around for a bit, Sally needed a break. What better place than in front of three mirrors (she's just like her Mama). Again, pretty cute and innocent!

Oldies, but Goodies

Nana and Grandpa were down this past weekend! We had a lot of fun with them. It was so fun to see Sally finally show her "true colors" after warming up to new faces. While they were here I borrowed Ann's memory card to get some pictures back from December. I thought I would share a few of these with you!

Where is Sally?

Sally has been enjoying the wood floors and how easily she can "scoot" around. She's not quite crawling yet. This has made me vacuum and clean the floors much more often, it's amazing what she can find!

Our New Baby

No No No, I'm not pregnant! It was time to upgrade our home computer. The one we were using was my computer from college. Yep, that's right, it was new in August of 2002...8 years ago!! If you know computers, the minute you buy one, it's outdated. So, needless to say it was waaaay overdue for us to get a new computer! It's amazing that I can have 5 windows open, AND listen to music and the computer won't freeze or I don't have to restart it, or I don't have to walk away, take a shower and still find it "loading"

I do feel a little sad for Sally as she was a bit neglected yesterday as I was playing on our new toy. At least it was nap time when the computer first arrived! However, after the newness wears off I think having this new computer will allow me more time with her because it won't take so long to do my simple daily task I must do each day :)

One last thing, as you saw on my sister's blog we've now got Skype. So, if you want to chat with us, add us to your contacts, we're craigmilecrew.

These pictures are from a while ago when we were celebrating Christmas with the Craigmiles. Sally was playing with her cousin Cannon. These make me laugh every time. Cannon's face is priceless!
"Ready Dad, I'm gonna get him.."

"OOOOOH, I got cooties from a GIIIRL!"

Pretty Pretty Please

Sally is already practicing what she'll do when she needs to ask her daddy if she can borrow the car for the night. Similar to what a puppy does when she wants another treat. Oh Sally, how you can get your daddy to do anything!

9 Months!

Happy 9 months to Sally today! Crazy to think that she's been out as long as she was in :)

The stats:
16lbs 10 oz-15 percentile
27 1/2 inches-50 percentile

Two things:
1.) I can't believe I am still able to carry her around in her car seat and get her in and out of the car. Daddy's sling can't come off soon enough!

2.) I hope she gains weight so by the time she turns one she'll be able to get a front-facing car seat!

Happy 9 months baby girl! Mommy and Daddy love you forever!

Babbling Baby

Last night at dinner is seemed as though someone put a quarter in Sally. However, this morning, she woke up doing the same thing! So fun to hear her!

We've Got The Beat

Sally loves anything to do with music! The other night during dinner, Reid and I started tapping on the table and this is what happened...

Flip Camera

I'm so excited about my new Flip Camera I got for my birthday from my mom and George. It is so fun and super easy! It allows me to record up to two hours. You know what that means, even more videos on the blog! Reid especially loves it because I do more video during the day so he is able to get "see" more of Sally each day even though he's at work! Thanks Mom and George for this great gift! Will be fun to use in Florida (my mom, Sally and I are going the end of March)!

We celebrated my 26th birthday over the weekend. Thanks to our great friends Kyle and Laura, we were able to have a date night-Thank you!

We went to Crave for dinner and then to the new movie theatre in Saint Louis Park. You can pay a few extra dollars and get your seats in the VIP section. I know, we're kind of a big deal :) They have over sized seats that can turn into love seats, oh la la. The best part, you can eat and drink during the movie!

We saw Avatar 3D! It was very very good! I don't usually like movies like this, but trust me, this is a must see!

Lookin' good with our 3D glasses on! CHEERS!

Delicious! A little bit of "summer" during the cold cold January days!
