Sleeping like a baby is generally considered a good thing. But I, for one, am glad that I don't sleep like this baby! Here are some pictures of how we find him when we check on him before we go to bed.
Notice his feet are over the bumper and through the rails. That can't be comfortable! But I guess since he's snuggling with the bear Aunt Megan made him, all is well.
Always the gentleman, he has his feet crossed and rested on the bumper. Oh, and he's wearing his new extra cozy snuggle PJ's! So sweet and warm!

six months

We had Micah's six month pictures taken today. He's becoming very mobile these days, enjoying solids a little more each day, and I swear he can sign Mommy. :-) We're also trying to teach him to put his hands up when someone asks him, "How big is Micah?" Sooooo big! He has a well baby visit next week, so we'll have to see how big sooo big is.

Joys of a little girl

I'll admit it. I am totally into gender stereotyping. I love the fact that Elizabeth is a girly girl! This past Saturday night, I put sponge rollers in her hair. The results were cute (once it calmed down a little!). Then, today, Elizabeth had her first ballet class. So fun! Although she doesn't seem to have much natural talent, she had fun.

She actually slept in the rollers! She wanted curls so badly!
The model pose.
The after picture. She was quite the hit at church!
It's ballet day!!!

Mow-ee Hands

When Curtis mows our back yard, it's almost like he is mowing dirt, since everything is so dry. At the end of this chore, he comes in to house, filthy! A few days ago, Elizabeth and I made chocolate chip cookies, one of our favorite past times. Since the cookie was fresh, the chocolate was very messy, as was Elizabeth. She held up her chocolate covered hands and told me, "I have mow-ee hands!" What? After several rounds of questions, we figured out that "mow-ee" means dirty. :-) This conclusion was confirmed today when she fell onto our dirty van and she announced that she again had, "Mow-ee Hands."

Another Elizabethism for you.

Earlier in the week, we got some rain. Of course, this was the day when I took Curtis to work and was out running errands. So, seizing a teaching opportunity, I asked Elizabeth who made the rain. She has become quite good at answering any question that begins with, "Who made...." and immediately told me, "God." So, trying to stump her, I asked why God made that rain. Without pausing she replied, "To have umbrellas!" Of course! Never mind the flowers, grass and trees, God made the rain so that we could have umbrellas!

And since I do have another child, here's a story about him.

Micah has finally decided to sleep through the night! Yay!!!! It's about time. My theory on the matter is that he wears himself out now that he is mobile. He can't quite crawl, although he is trying very hard! For the moment, he rolls. And I don't just mean a little. I leave him in the living room, and find him in the kitchen all the time.

His other favorite pass time in Bumper Wrestling. The bumper in his crib is an object, that in Micah's mind, must not be left alone, but rather, should be thrown around the crib. Since this was a way to keep himself awake, Curtis and I thought it wise to pull the bumper out. That was until he got all his appendages stuck in the rails, and smashed his face against the rails (see previous post). Now, the bumper is back in the crib. It's always interesting to see exactly where Micah is (usually partially under the bumper with the rest of him over the bumper) when we get him up in the mornings.

Micah's nose

Notice Micah's nose, by his right eye.

Here's how it happened.
Poor Micah!

Football Season Begins!

As any good Aggie knows, today was our first game of the '06 season. Even though I'm not an actual Aggies, Curtis says I was smart enough to marry an Aggie. And now, I have two little Aggies. So, as any good Aggie wife would do, I made sure my little Aggie family was ready for the first game. Here's a taste of Aggieland for those of you who aren't lucky enough to live here anymore!

Last night Curtis and I went to First yell. Neither of us had ever been, and we had tons of fun! and who knew A&M had a Mariachi band?!? Not the Krajcas.

Here are the pictures of Game Day at the Krajca house.

Shirt says: I yell At Midnight Too!

Awww! Can you believe it's a picture of just the two of us?!

Gig 'em Aggies!
