Happy 33rd!

I'm commandeering "our" blog on Nancee's birthday to let everyone know how awesome my wife is. I know, I know, you're all thinking "but Troy, we already know she's awesome." That may be true, but none of you know HOW awesome she is. Let me divulge...

She is very patient, as anyone can attest who has seen her with 2 crazy girls. She doesn't believe that she's very patient, but she is, and that leads me to my next point:

She's humble and caring. These just seem to go together with her. She always serves her family first before attending to her own needs.

She's so good at seeing things in the light of reality, with a level head and cool logic. She has really helped me understand that there are many different sides to any one issue.

She's so dang smart. She's everything from a meaningful and entertaining conversationalist, to a lawyer who graduated cum laude (for those of you like me who didn't graduate with fancy Latin words next to their names, that means "with honors.")

She's fun to hang out with, play games with, talk with, and do just about anything else with. She does cool stuff. I'm so glad she goes snowboarding and wakeboarding with me.

She's hot. Don't deny it.

She's way better at blogging than me. If you've made it this far into my post, you'll probably agree with me.

She keeps our house as organized as possible with the previously mentioned 2 crazy kids, and cooks bang-up meals and desserts.

I love you, sweets!

Sadie 15 months

It is blasting hot in Arizona right now, so we spend our days watching movies and swimming. Nothing too exciting to blog about. Sadie did hit her 15 month milestone, so I wanted to catch that one. Actually she is 16 months now. Oh well.

Height: 30 inches (34%)
Weight: 20 lb 9 oz (16%)
Head: 46 cm (52%)

Sadie is a joy to have in our family. She is always happy and easy going. She has 5 teeth now and knows about 5 signs.

The only thing she really says is "...ere ooo owe" Translation - "Here you go." She does say bird now and then, ball and bye bye. We don't have mama, dada or much else yet.

She LOVES playing with her older sister and Erica is a much better older sister than I ever was. She is usually pretty patient with Sadie and let's her play.

Here is our make shift sandbox for the summer.

Sadie is our little climber. The dryer is one of her favorite places.

One day I heard her whimpering. I found her in her bedroom like this. She had climbed on a box, climbed on the bed, climbed on the dresser, pushed everything off and realized she couldn't get down. We've had to do some major child proofing with this one.

And, saving the best for last, Sadie is our little dancer. I would like to compare her skillz to those of Elaine Benes.
