O, the Chef

I decided to let O help me cook the other night. She did a great job. Here she is not too sure of what's going on.

Then she started to get the hang of it . . . "Oh, I'm supposed to stir. Ok, I can do that."

And here's the fun part . . .
putting the crunchies on top. Yum!

The only problem now is that she thinks she needs to sit on the counter EVERY time Mommy or Daddy cooks. :-) Such a big helper!

Nothing but Trouble

I promised you a picture of O in her new shirt. Very fitting these days, don't you think?I know, I know, she looks innocent in this picture . . . don't let it fool you! :-)

Be Patient

So my dear friend (you know who you are) is giving me a hard time about not having more pictures up yet. I figure an explanation is in order . . . we are remodeling our house to make room for baby E. Our study is in a state of complete disorder which means the computer is not even plugged in. I promise to remember to bring the camera to work tomorrow and download/upload (still don't know the appropriate word) some pics. Just be patient with me . . . they're coming.

In the meantime, here's O about 2 months ago proudly displaying her big-girl princess jammies. This was when I believed she really was a princess . . . before she was in her "independent, I-can-do-anything by myself" stage. Now I'm not so sure about these princess jammies . . . they seem a bit deceiving. We bought her a shirt last weekend that says "Trouble is my middle name" . . . I think that's a bit more appropriate these days. :-)

Oh, but I love her just the same if not more!

Downloading Pictures

Here's the latest downloaded picture series of O. I have more recent ones but I need to get them off the camera.

So, here she is being the ham that she is . . .

And I promise to download more soon.

Or is it upload? You download the picture to the computer . . . then you upload it to the blog.

Hmmm . . . better learn the proper blogging lingo.

3 Becomes 4

It's a BOY! Baby "E" will be joining our family in late Feb/early March 2008. We are so excited to be adding a boy to our happy little family. Though to be honest with you, I'm kind of scared. We have a lot of work to do to get ready for this little guy and not much time! This pregnancy is going so much faster than the last!
Here's our family as it is now. This was taken in July 2007 for O's first birthday.

First Try

Well, we're going to give this blogging thing a try. So many people have been asking for a way to view pics and updates of our growing family . . . so here we are. I'll do my best to keep this thing updated so please check back from time to time and see how the Monteblanco Family is doing. :-)
