Christmas party!

This year for our Ward Christmas party our so-cool Activities committee (Nate and Caroline Roeth!) broke with tradition and we had a Brunch. Santa appeared first, so no waiting for the kiddos. It also meant that we could get our food in relative peace while the kids were entertained by Santa. A stroke of pure genius, if I may say so. We all had fun.
Here is Myra for her first Santa picture. Also a break with tradition, as she is not only not screaming, she's grinning up a storm. My little social butterfly...

You'll notice that no pictures of Logan appear here. That would be because he spent the entire time running around the building with his friends Ian, Nicky, Carter, and Isaac. They were too cute. Logan breezed by Santa going Mach 2, and identified him as "Santa", but there was no time for lap sitting. Ian was teaching Sunday School (which was SOOOO cute, as his Dad is the Sunday School teacher), and we couldn't miss that!
After the party, we were all pretty tired out. Naptime was a breeze!

Thanks, Nate and Caroline! It was awesome!

What's happening?

So, where have we been? I know I generally post much more frequently than this, but I have a legit excuse!! My computer, the Dell laptop with which I am the most comfortable and do all of my computing has been seriously infected with some nasty malware, and is completely crippled. Logan can't even watch his videos - a great loss, as many of you know. As a result, I am currently attempting to use Mitch's computer, a Mac that is so obsolete that the operating system is no longer compatible with the most current version of Apple's web browser. So, little things like photo uploaders and HTML decoders don't work well. So, here I am slogging through the HTML garbage on my screen to post an update. I hope you all appreciate my sacrifices...

Myra just had her 4 month birthday, with the attendant 4 month well child check. She's a chunky monkey like her brother and weighs in at 15 pounds 4 ounces, which is 85%ile, and is 24 inches long, which is 50 %ile. So, at least she's closer to proportioned than big brother! She got her shots, and I thought she was having trouble with them, as she was grumpy yesterday, but this morning's snot reveals that in fact, Logan has succeeded in passing on his cold. Unsurprising, as he loves his sister and likes to kiss her and try to feed her from his sippy cup. Yay.

Otherwise, she is very well! She's getting better with her head and trunk control. Here she is sitting with Mommy.

And here is her first ride in the baby swing. I'm not sure she's too much of a fan yet...

She seems to like the exersaucer, though.

Logan supervises. He is actually very patiently waiting his turn. He has to do whatever Myra does.

And here she is rolling over!! She had to be unconventional and do it back to front first. She doesn't really like laying on her back, but loves tummy time! No complaints from me. Maybe we can avoid the typical baby bald spot.

And here is Logan, sharing all of his toys with her. Isn't he sweet... She seems a bit perplexed by it all.

And here is a new sling that I finished today. It is a bit of an experiment. I wanted to try out denim for a sling, but it has to be lined, so I used satin for this one. It isn't perfect. The satin is slippery and it makes the sling difficult to adjust, but it sure is pretty!

And Myra seems to like it!

So, that's as much update as I can take for the moment. May the originators of all viruses, adware and spyware be consigned to the deepest pits of the Abyss.
