As I watch the snow falling AGAIN I have nothing fun to say. Even my husband is trapped at home today, a result of living in The Middle of Nowhere™ where they never plow the roads.
So, enjoy a video. This is what happens when Baby Boy gets a glimpse of The Dog. Hilarity ensues (ignore the first few seconds of video...where I try and get The Dog to do what I want).

Also, I am happy to say you watched your first New Year's Eve celebration and (surprise!) you were still ready to party until well after midnight! You also watched the Pittsburgh Steelers secure a spot in the Superbowl. This is important because the further the Steelers go in post-season the happier your Nonna and Papa are (hee hee). Dr. Dad doesn't really care too much about football, so I must carry on the tradition of rooting for the Steelers even though our family has lived in Ohio all of my life. I guess if you have Pennsylvanian roots you can never cheer for Ohio teams. Unless it's The Ohio State University. I really think you aren't allowed to live in Ohio unless you cheer for them.
Finally, you and I watched the inauguration of President Barack Obama yesterday. That was exciting. Well, it was exciting for most of us... even Baby Girl saw it at school yesterday and we had a lot to talk about. I thought it was an important event to mention here, even if you had no idea what was going on.
You still haven't tried to roll over. You can get on your side sometimes, but otherwise, you are more interested in sitting. You sit pretty well when you are supported, and occasionally you get yourself in a good position and can sit on your own until you plop over.
We are both excited and nervous for the next milestones (childproofing? Ugh.)...until then, happy 6 month birthday Baby Boy.

Baby Girl started with her coughing on Saturday and when I took her in yesterday (after a fever that just wouldn't go away) we found she has the same type of pneumonia she had last year. Thankfully, antibiotics should take care of it, and I have a prescription waiting for me to take as well. Dr. Dad just let me know he is feeling "off" and I just pray and pray it doesn't get to Baby Boy. Baby Girl has been out of school the whole week and I am getting a taste of taking care of two helpless creatures at once! She is striking a pathetic pose on the couch right now with frequent dramatic requests for this or that.
Thankfully, Baby Girl was in much better spirits when she woke us up Sunday morning after losing her first tooth. The Tooth Fairy brought some sugarless gum and a dollar. Happiness all around.

Baby Girl got a dollhouse, and NOT a Wii, despite her endless campaign. She really didn't seem to mind, though. Baby Boy got some diapers. He also didn't seem to mind. There were many other gifts including a fabulous new wallet and laptop case to me from Dr. Dad (despite our no gift pledge) and I was very surprised. We are very blessed.

It was a trip of a lifetime. Christmas in New York City is truly something to behold. I was hoping one day to go there for the Thanksgiving Day Parade but now I will focus my trips on the West Coast.
Hopefully not as rushed!

However, some of us have resolved to try something new...
I was actually thinking I should resolve to keep a spirit of thankfulness throughout the year. With everything that happened in 2008, I realized I can sum it all up quite easily:
Our blessings are many. Our worries are few.
I wish the same for you and yours in 2009.
