it's time to get back to blogging! we have been running around like crazy, but i realize that is just life. since my last post (way back in november!) we have been to seattle a few times for maggie's shower & wedding, in new hampshire for christmas & new years with the johnson family, the applequist family came out to oregon for a visit, we had mike & greta's birthdays, a weekend to mcminnville with the halversons & carlsons, several trips to portland- and calla's 2nd birthday is next week! it's been a fun-filled few months. greta started ballet (she now wants to be a ballerina when she grows up), both girls started music class, and calla is soon going to be able to do her own gymnastics class. we go every week for greta & calla just sits there DYING to run out and do all the stunts. when she turns 2 she gets to go- it's so soon!
calla is clearly stubborn & her new favorite words are "mine" and "no, me" (as in, leave me alone- i want to do this myself, especially when she's getting dressed- she wants NO help!). she is also a total riot and cracks up herself & us all the time. greta has decided that along with being a ballerina she wants to be an artist, which she daily shows us with her art projects & coloring within the lines (with the "right" colors for each part of the picture). she could spend hours coloring. they both want to climb on the furniture every chance they get, which finds me nervous at times they are going to hurt themselves, but i love that they are willing to try crazy things. greta practices her "handstands" all the time & calla can be found mimicking pretty much everything greta does. we love our little girls!
we'll post stories soon, but that is life in a nutshell!
