My sister-in-law is a dental hygienist and she has invented a baby toothbrush. It is called the Baby Banana Brush. Here is a picture of it:

This is the first time I've been tagged. I feel so special.

Here are the rules: Post these rules of "tag" at the beginning of your blog. List 6 facts or habits about yourself. At the end of the post, you must tag 6 people and post their names. Go to their blog and leave them a comment letting them know they have been tagged and to read your blog for more details.

1. I have the greatest husband in the world and I realize it more each day. Here are just a few of his qualities: handsome, patient, intelligent, creative, artistic, resourceful, loving, loyal, romantic, inventive, musical, wonderful, etc.

2. I've spent the last hour and a half trying to get my daughter to sleep and the fight still goes on...Any suggestions from the masses on how to get your kid on a schedule. She usually takes an afternoon nap, but refuses to go down again until after hours of fighting it. She finally tuckers out about 7pm, but I would like her bed time to be later because she doesn't sleep more than 8 hours, which puts her wake up time at about 3am. Doesn't work for me. HELP!!!!

3. I love to exercise: running, tennis, snowboarding, wakeboarding, boogie boarding, swimming, ping pong, soccer, frisbee, football, etc. Now, if only I could find the time to do it.

4. My favorite TV shows right now are "The Office" and "24".

5. I've visited the following countries: United States, Canada, Mexico, Ukraine, Russia, France, Vienna and New Zealand.

6. I wore long sleeves to the library yesterday and it was so hot in the car I had to turn my air conditioning on in November. I love Arizona!!!!

I am tagging: Greg and/or Al, Julie Black and Julie Tegeder, Lesley, Michaun and the Neuners.

Daddy got her to smile.

I know I said I wasn't a big fan of pink, but this is too cute.

2 Months Old

Erica's 2 month stats:

Height: 22.3 inches (43 percentile)

Weight: 8 lb 5 oz (3 percentile)

Head Circumference: 38.5 cm (41 percentile) - So she's got a big head.
This is the usual serious face/grimace she wears. P.S. Read the onesie.
Already training for a marathon:

Almost caught a smile. It's hard because everytime I put the camera in front of her, she gets distracted. This will have to be a two-man job.

Just being cute. I might also add that it is the middle of November and she can still wear a sun dress. She doesn't know how lucky she is.

Hanging out with dad. (I know Sonja and Molly. We will cut his hair as soon as we can.)

Auntie "M" came to visit. We were so happy!!! So was Kayla.

Back Patio

Troy is putting in our back patio. It's looking good!!
