I can take a hint

It's been a long time. Sorry for the delay, friends, and thanks for the subtle and not-so-subtle hints to update the blog, EMH and LWL. We haven't had much exciting to write about, and sickness has abounded in our house. We've had ear infections, sinus infections, croup, and a stomach bug since we've last posted. It's been a tough winter. Chloe seems to have brought home every possible illness from daycare and lovingly passed it down to us. Hopefully when the weather gets warmer we'll all begin to feel better. We got our first glimpse of spring today with 70 degree weather and we can't wait for more!

We took Chloe to the park today for the first time, and she loved it! She loved the swing and the nice weather, and was infatuated by all of the people. It literally wore her out. She came home and took a 2 hour nap (and for those ofyou who know Chlo, that is a long nap!). We've posted all of her new pictures on her Picasa page; the link's on the right under "Chloe pics". She is such a joy to us and we can't believe she is 8 months old. She is a crawling machine, and is into everything, but her favorite thing to do is stand up and cruise from one piece of furniture to another. She'll be walking in no time flat.

Jared and I are holding our own. He has been back and forth to Richmond and will continue to travel there for work this month. We are excited to welcome our new nephew this summer when Alison and James have their first baby boy in July! Things have been good, just crazy busy. Forgive us for the delay in posting; we'll try to get back into the swing of things soon! Enjoy a few pictures of our cute girl!

Cheesing for the camera. The carrots got a little out of control this night.

Cute girl with her daddy. The sunhat's a little big, but you've gotta do what you've gotta do.

Somebody LOVES to swing.

Go see some more pics of our cute Chloe.

Adorable, I can't believe how big she's gotten!

forgive my lack of subtlety, It's purely that I miss y'all and really wanted to see you. I've spent too much time around Charlotte who goes "uh uh uh" and waves her arms when she wants something.

Thanks for the update though!! I hope you all feel better for a long stretch now :)

Love the pics! Miss Y'all

I'm not sorry for the point-blank begging. This post is great! Thanks for taking the time to do it - It sounds like you guys have definitely had it rough. Here's to Spring and less germs.

Love you!
