Touch me!

So I am writing this from my new itouch! Besides the interface for typing being a little hard to use it is pretty darn neat! Iwould write more but my eyes are starting to cross from this tiny tiny screen!

Weekend Update

We are enjoying our weekend after a very hectic week. Kira is at my feet playing with an old purse and some juggling balls, chirping as she explores the mystery of "bags can hold other things" and of course the miracle of velcro. She started this week by waving to me, and she's decided now that everyone, even the mona lisa in the office, requires a big wave. She started clapping on Wednesday, so now everything done requires a good clapping as well. It's kind of like having a very tiny but friendly chearleader in your house.

Beyond developmental milestones, it was my birthday (and Anne's birthday) this Friday. While Anne was listening to OC music and sipping Zinfandel, I was eating bad tofu, admiring a beautiful arrangement of roses, talking to family, and enjoying a fantastic champagne. Honestly, it was a great day.

We went to trick or treat town this weekend, which is an event staged in a parking garage for children to get candy in a safe environment. Kira and her friend Elyse seemed to enjoy the festivities as well as they possibly could for infants from their vantage point baby wraps. We felt weird getting Kira candy, considering she can't eat any of it yet. So we looked a bit like creeps getting candy for ourselves, using our child as a crutch. Ah Well. There were 50 stalls of candy-giving volunteers from various businesses in town, and at the end there were Taiko drummers, hot dogs, and popcorn.

Today is a beautiful, sunny day, which in the winter means it is insanely frigid. It's about 13 degrees out there. Yikes!

The sick house

Here is a picture from last weekend, when all of us were not sick.

Frank's been sick with chills and a chest cold since Thursday, and spent a good amount of time on Saturday in bed. I've had a bad sinus cold since Friday, and of course you know what happens next -- yes, that's right -- Kira woke up today with her first bona fide cold. I would say she woke up crying, but she had lost her voice in the night, so the cry came out more like a tiny bullfrog ("yaak, yaak"). She has been having as good a time as she can, and even managed to sneeze out a massive pile of snot onto daddy's shirt with a huge smile.

Last night, I made tomato soup and grilled cheese for Frank. Miss K has discovered a deep love of tomato soup to go with her pickle spear fixation. She has decided not to eat any vegetables -- although I have to tell you, Gerber peas taste icky anyways. She will eat fruit if there is cinnamon in it. I tried whole milk baby yogurt with her this morning, and she gave me this look like "Seriously? Are you trying to kill me?".

Anyways, that's what is happening in the fun Moore household this weekend.

Kira woke me up this morning with a thwack to the head and a "ta-da!". Ta-Da for sure -- Miss K now has 2 teeth!

Kira would like to warn everyone there is a chance of SNOW this evening. Make sure you have a proper snow hat!

In other news, there is not too much new news. Let's see...

--We had been waiting for a good day to go to powerline pass, and finally got our chance last Friday. The pictures are in the 6month album above -- Kira had a great time in the Baby Bjorn.

--I have been doing the Tuesday night trail runs, which are fun. It's the only time I get to go trail running, since I don't especially want to get eaten by bears and the burley stroller doesn't do well on rough terrain. The runs are rugged -- tundra in the fall, I was suprised to find out, is kind of like running on a sponge sitting on top of a trampoline.

--Frank installed one of our new fancy baby gates! We don't need it yet, but we want to get these in before K gets mobile.

--Speaking of mobility, Kira is getting really close! She can now easily go backwards, and is on all fours now. She also has lots of new sounds -- Ga, Ba, Da, Buh, Duh, Ta, Fa. She poked her eye with a metal spoon at Sunrise Grille which set up a really bad Sunday, but thanks to her ever-expanding brain, looks like long-term memory has kicked in enough that she hasn't tried it again...yet.

Anyways, that's all I have today...hope you have a great day!
