While I was making dinner, she pulled herself up on the wall, got balanced and went for it. She took at least 4 steps and then fell over. She busted up laughing like it was the funnest thing in the world. Then she tried it over and over. She got to where she could take a couple steps and then balance herself and go a little further. It was great. She entertained herself for about 30 minutes. I tried to get it on video, but any parent knows that as soon as the camera comes out, all camera-worthy moments immediately stop. We'll keep trying.
In other news...when we first moved to Tucson a year and a half ago (has it been that long already?) I was paranoid about rattlesnakes, scorpions, and tarantulas. I expected them to turn up everywhere in my house. Well, after a year of not seeing any of these things, I began to relax. Bad idea.
The night of our anniversary, Troy found this by our front door:
Scary!!!! These things are dangerous and I can't stop thinking about what would have happened if Erica came across this thing. The next day, Troy put caulking in all the possible holes by the front door. We are also going to spray around the house with scorpion killer stuff. FYI - If you use a black light at night and shine them on a scorpion, they will glow. I went scorpion hunting the other night while Troy was working late, but thankfully I didn't find anymore.
We also found this in our yard a few weeks ago:
At least these aren't poisonous.

- Our dog - Kayla
- Nancee graduated from law school
- Troy got his Masters in Mechanical Engineering
- Traveled to Hawaii 3 times
- Moved to Arizona
- Bought a home
- Played a lot of Boggle
I feel very blessed to have Troy in my life. He makes me so happy and I don't know how I survived without him. I hate to say goodbye to him every time he leaves for work and can't wait until he gets home in the evening. He treats me like a queen and is so patient with me. I love you, Troy!!!

"Of course I'll pose for the camera..."
"right before I try to eat it."
* After reading this sentence, Nancee wanted to make it clear that Troy did this post... and Kayla didn't lick her butt directly before licking Erica's face. That would just be gross.

Thank goodness they actually had an appointment for this afternoon. Of course, right after I got off the phone, Erica started acting happier (but not totally herself, so I kept the appointment). Well, to make a long story short, the doctor found that she had a terrible ear ache. Erica started crying as soon as the doctor put the thing in her ear. Erica had barely touched that ear in the last 2 days. I had no idea it was hurting her. I'm so glad I went to the doctor and now we have her on lots of medicine. I wish I had called yesterday and got her in sooner, but I just didn't know what was wrong.
So my question to all of you, is how do you make the decision of when it is time to go to the doctor?
