There's just something about controlling a robot arm thingy that makes even the most dignified adult feel like a kid. Even my dad started playing with it when I showed it to him. ;)

Joshua, it’s been an adventure being married to you. I think I have you figured out and then you go and do something that surprises and amazes me. I’m so grateful for you.
I love you. Happy Birthday.
“Lead me and I’ll follow you
When the love is right
The path is bright
From the Father of lights you came
And I know I’ll never be the same
When the Love is Right

So today I felt inspired to find out exactly how many bottles of dressings, dips, sauces, syrups, and marinades that we currently have in our home. The final count is... 49.
And that's not counting the four dressing-sized bottles of cooking wine that Joshua brought home or the bottle of salted Tequila (yes, that is an ingrediant in some marinades.)
I sometimes wonder what sort of impact this will have on our children as they grow up.
"Daddy, Sarah's family only had two bottles of dressing with dinner! Isn't that silly?"
"Mommy, why don't my friends eat their dressing by the spoonful like we do?"
Ah, well, we've never been normal in any other part of life- why should our condiments be any different?

Evangeline is only 5 1/2 months old and today she pulled herself up to a standing position and, with some interesting maneuvering, got a toy out of the toy box. Isn't my little girl something? She's always been strong so at this rate she'll be bench pressing her brother by the time she's a year old. My theory is that she's pushing herself to excel in mobility just so she can run away from Lily when she gets in her mothering moods.
I'm so proud of my baby.
