Counting

Tessa counts all the time now. The numbers aren't always in order, but they are for the most part. I'm impressed. Here she's perusing the Reader's Digest and counting. Talk about multi tasking.

We found a bike! -in our budget, tall enough, and even new. That deserves a hurray. We found the bike on Craigslist. We met this guy Eddy at a storage unit filled with brand new bikes. He's taking off for Puerto Rico after all the bikes are sold. Hmmmkay. It LOOKED like we were in some alley paying for hot items, but it didn't feel that way. He was actually a nice guy who tuned up the bike for me and told me about a great place to eat while Tessa ran in circles around a fire hydrant. Looks like a family bike ride for Labor Dabor.

She is so amazing. I have never heard anyone that age talk as good as she does. What a smart little girl, and how fun to watch her progress!

Ok I am a bad friend. I havn't been to your blog in forever. You are pretty funny. demon crockpot pictures of toilets and the stolen bike you bought from a guy "moving". I can't belive that tessa is counting. Gabe sits. I think that is all the progress I am ever going to let him make.

I missed one day of checking your blog, and there were a million (slight exaggeration) new things. I am excited for your new bike, even if you will be hunted down by the police for being an accessory to a crime. I love to watch Tessa. She is so cute and smart. When I thought about the crockpot/blister leading to smores, it made more than enough sense to me, but I started "eating healthier" yesterday by making cookie dough. Good luck with the climbing and bike riding!

You looked like a mannequin up until the very end of Tessa's counting clip. A little creepy. I kept looking for signs of life, I think your finger may have twitched a little. Cute Tessa. So glad you got your bike. I will pray that it isn't hot for your sake. When's the 5K? How's Jakes training?

That's awesome. When Ryker first started counting past ten he'd always go "11, 12, 13, 16....." I don't know why he could never get 14 and 15 in there.
