Trials

David and I are enduring two different types of trials this week.

For David...he is enduring the Olympic Trials in Omaha.

I say that he is "enduring" them, because...well.... the swimmer that he is coaching there isn't doing so hot. On Monday, she added over 1.5 seconds to her 200 meter breaststroke. In the swimming world, this means that she may as well have decided to doggy paddle for the whole race.

I, on the other hand, am enduring trials like tantrums at dinner, a depressed dog that hasn't been given any attention all week (that's David's job), bathtime and bedtime routines without daddy, and a sweet little two year old that keeps asking, "Where's Daddy go?" It's funny though, because Ava's little friend Peyton asked her where her daddy is, and Ava clearly answered, "He's on a TRIP in OH-Ha". Funny.

Oh yes, and I took Ella in for her four-month well check on Tuesday. She is in the 75th percentile for height (I forget exactly how long she is...), and she weighs in at 13.5 pounds and is somewhere in the 55th percentile for weight. She is reaching for toys, standing up with help, smiling, laughing, rolling over, and continuing to be just about the happiest baby on earth.

David took the little cord that transfers pics to the computer with him to "Oh-Ha", so I'll have to wait until next week to post some new pics and video. In the meantime, I hope everyone has a Happy 4th!

Wow. I was hoping you were going to say that Dave was trying out for the olympics.... Hopefully his swimmer will get her head out of the water, no pun intended.
Good luck with bed time routines, I hate when David is gone.
