I've been slacking in the "blogging" department. I hope everyone had a happy new year. Ours was pretty uneventful. We stayed home and I was actually in bed by 8:30. It sounds so pathetic when I type it out. Oh well, I can safely say that our partying days are over (did they ever really start?).
Everyone is doing well. Ally is officially a 2 year old - in every way you can imagine. She has a mind of her own and it's "Ally's way or the highway". Oh well, she's our little diva, and soon she'll learn that she's not the boss - right? We did hit a few milestones with her though. On Christmas, she moved into a "big girl bed" (toddler bed) and Adam took apart the crib. Thanks to grandma Mary, grandpa Doug, auntie Shannon, and uncle Tony for the new "barbie bed" as she calls it. It's actually a Disney princess bed w/ a canopy, but whatever. She transitioned quite well, actually. Then, about 2 weeks ago, we threw away the Nuk's! ALL OF THEM. Trust me, if I had a backup hidden somewhere, I would've caved in and gave it back to her by now. Now it takes her a little longer to get her to bed, and we usually have to lay with her until she falls asleep, but that's okay. It was her comfort item for 2 years, I can't blame the kid. That being said, she really is doing great and being a big girl about it. Next, we get to tackle potty training! I'm not going to push that though, she just doesn't seem ready.
My cousin Ian got married this weekend to a wonderful girl named Amy. Unfortunately I missed the ceremony due to Mapquest giving HORRIBLE directions. I heard it was beautiful though. The reception was very nice, held at Northwestern College. That is a great location!
Anyway, I'll try to keep up with this a little better than I have been. My friend Abby has a blog, and 3 kids and she updates it almost daily...what's my excuse???
