A little laugh.

I tried to put this video I found on here but Blogger is giving me issues... but YOUTUBE isn't!

Check this out and get your 'Ahhhhhhhhh's' ready...

A moment.

It has been too long since we've posted, but as you well know (and we have now learned), lots of blogging time gets scooped up by a 9 month old...and then a 12 month old...and now a 15 month old, and someday she'll be 30, and we will blog consistently again...though about what, I have no idea.

But for now we update... and with pictures (1,000 words and all).

We've learned how to play 'Orse'. You know she wants to play when she comes up and taps you one the back and clicks her tongue like a horse clomping.

Grandaunt Mary Lo gave Daisy some sweet glasses for Easter.

Easter Sunday, 2011

When she hugs, she just puts the side of her head on the item of this case, her new Easter Book.

Easter Sunday

Easter Saturday.

We found eggs with the Balsers...or, rather, the Jacobsens.

A Daisy among the Dandelions.

While we always look amazing on the blog, most days it's lying around the house, still looking amazing.

L's mom had some family pictures taken, and we snuck in a few of just our little family.

It has been amazing and wonderful and easy and light and perfect and sweet and...there is more to come...that's right, more.

And after 15 months of (really) bliss, it looks like this little family will be getting a little... less... little...

December 7th, 2010

Today we went to the court house and told a judge that we would love our sweet Daisy for ever and forever... come to think of it, they were more concerned about until she was 18, but we agreed to do both.

It was a great day. One to remember always.

Our Lawyers have the pictures (they were the only ones who could sneak a camera into the court house). We'll show you when we've got 'em.

6 then 7 months.

So, Daisy turned 6 months...then she turned 7 months.

At 6 months we were on the road making the big move!

Luckily we were able to keep the tradition alive at our dear friends house, who had the most amazing nursery that Daisy fit right into!

Such a lady now...then, at 6 months.

Ah, but then, as Maya Angelou says,


Your skin like dawn
Mine like musk

One paints the beginning
of a certain end.

The other, the end of a
sure beginning.


Yup, time marches on.

Leaves change and so do outfits.
(I think that's what Maya was really getting at)

At 7 months we were at a cabin in the woods with dear and old friends. (not pictured)

It was lovely.


This one goes out to the ladies in Jersey! Miss you guys!

Sunday Soup

Lindsay has this book and every time she dips into it is satisfies, if not amazes. Summer is loosing it's battle with fall and there is an breath of sweaters in the air. Yesterday, I took my scooter out, just for a ride, in a cardigan, and I done near froze myself to death. The sun was out and I found myself hoping for red lights so I could stop and bask, like a lizard, and fill up my solar panels before skimming again into the cold air. I should be reading 'Something Wicked This Way Comes' but I am in the middle of 'A Handmaids Tale' and am glad. I never used to reread books, the idea that I was missing out on something new to do whats been done, but even though it's not season specific, it feels like the right book for right now. Maybe it's just the crisp back to school air that tells you, 'read something'.

August gone. And with it Summer.

So here's the deal. We left NYC/Jersey and now live in Utah.

Lots of reasons: Daisy.

Lindsay has this moment where she has nothing to do but raise our daughter and write a 300 page book....which she can do from any where, so she's doing it from Utah. Daisy can be closer to her grandma's (not too close, we are living in Salt Lake...well, right now we are living in my mothers basement...again...which is wonderful and we are so lucky to have a place to absolutely CRASH which is an apt phrase when used here.)

So we took 13 days and drove our baby girl across America. It was beautiful, terrifying, wonder filled, and worthy of our pride. We took 600 pictures but all of our wires and stuff for putting pictures on blogs are in some box in my parents garage. It's worthy of a whole post anyway. This is just a little post to tell you where we are and that we made it safe and sound.

That's all.

Well, also I bought a scooter.

That's all.

A sweet little silver guy with brown leather seats.

Really all.



Lindsay wrecked it during the test drive. That's all.
