Nothing Much...

I don't really have anything much to add, I just noticed I haven't written for a while and thought that maybe I should! Serra decided to grow some more teeth afterall and 4 shot out from the top of her mouth just yesterday. We're a little nervous because her 2 bottom ones are overlapped/crooked and these 4 are REALLY spaced apart. I was told when I was younger that I had my father's line of teeth and they get worse and worse with each generation. I was hoping that none of my kids would get my teeth, but Ian's instead. However, it's looking like Serra may have gotten mine... I mean, have any of you ever seen a child with totally messed up teeth? Not that baby teeth come in perfect, but they aren't usually crooked and spaced and stuff... or maybe I just haven't met the "right" kids... Serra is constantly cracking me up though with silly faces and the things she decides she wants to do. Her latest fascination is with trash- not playing with it, but picking it up and throwing it away. So, I thought we might as well put it to use! So after each meal I ask her to please get the trash [which we have already gathered and put in a bag for her to carry]. She picks it up and carries it to the trash can to throw away. And once she's done that she comes back in clapping her hands and with a HUGE grin on her face. She is so funny! A few of my friends have announced pregnancies in the last month or two... looks like we'll be out of the loop again when we decide to get pregnant- we just aren't timing it right! :) Still no news on moving. We haven't had a single person come and look at the house, but we're trying not to get too discouraged- it has only been 3 months, so it's really not that bad yet. Anyway, we'll keep you posted on anything that comes up!

Serra loves picking up trash? She is a true descendant of Bets & Tav :) Ha ha. I would love to see pictures of her new smile!

Don't worry about space between the teeth right now... it just means she'll have plenty of room for her permanent teeth to grow in properly. Liah's used to have a gap too. The dentist said that because Emily's teeth are so close together, when her permanent teeth come in which will be bigger, they will most likely be crooked so she'll need braces. So space at thus stage is okay.

i alwas loved when my girls figured out how "fun" throwing trash was to do! Geneva does the same thing although finding her toys in there sucks :)

To Lorie, I'll put pics up as soon as you can see them when she smiles. They just barely broke through and she's not exactly keen on the idea of Ian holding her top lip up while I take a picture... To Amy, I totally understand about teh tipo tingy... I mean, the typo thing. :) I do it ALL the time! The worst is when I mean to type "it" but type something much worse! To Michelle, luckily our trash can is out in the garage, so the only way she can get to it is if we open the garage door for her... so I don't think we'll see any toys in it- we're still "supervising" her trash take-outs. :)
