Chicken Coop

This morning while I was getting ready for work, Isidora brought me her Duplo chicken coop and said, "Oh! Is foh bock-bock!" (Bock-bock is one of her words for chicken).

To this, I replied, "Oh, is that your chicken coop?"

Isidora then said, "Chi-ka coo."

Watch what you say, folks.

Father's Day Weekend

This weekend we celebrated our last weekend before I go back to work. Yesterday we went to the Cardinals game with Matt's parents. It was a 6 pm start time so Isidora did pretty well through the first 2/3 of the game (and then we went home). She started saying "bee-baoh" (baseball) a couple days ago, so she was even a little interested in the game, for a while at least. Juanita also taught her to say "go, go Aw-bur" for Albert Pujols. It was pretty cute. Here is a fun video of Izzie playing up in the Redbird club again. We did get to sit in our seats for 5 whole innings!

Today we spent most of the day over at Grant and Juanita's house watching the World Cup games and relaxing before tomorrow. Matt got some fun Father's Day presents too!

Sitting with Papa, reading a book.

Matt's Father's Day present - a bunch of Craftsman tools and a tool bag.

2nd Cousins

As I mentioned, we recently spent a week up in the Northwest visiting family. While we were visiting my Grandmother, my cousin was able to visit with her daughter, Kaylee, who is just under a year older than Isidora. Kaylee gets very excited to see Isidora, but unfortunately, we don't get to be up there that often (and it is only going to get worse!) I am really glad they got to spend some time together.

They had a great time playing and running around the dining room. It was a lot of fun to watch them play together.


Orientation for residency starts on Monday and in preparation I have been reading a couple of training manuals - PALS and NRP. Matt was kind enough this afternoon to watch Isidora while I got some good reading in, that is until Isidora climbed up the stairs and poked her little hands out the cat door and started saying, "heh-oo?" (hello). She was very excited to see her mama again but she was also excited to ask for a "kee-koo pees?" (cookie please). After Daddy got her a cookie, she decided to climb up on my chair with me to do some reading.

Sitting nicely while Mommy reads some PALS out loud.

This is boring, Mommy, where are the pictures?

I will miss all the time I get to spend with my little Goo-Goo Bean!

In case you were wondering, the swivel chairs were great for reading!

World Cup

Sorry for the long absence, we have been in the Northwest visiting family for the last week. We had a great time and got to see a lot of people while we were there. I promise there are pictures coming soon!

Today is the first day of the World Cup! Yay! So far I am not impressed by either Mexico or South Africa, but we will see what the second half holds.

I did want to share a link that my dad shared with me - it is a World Cup calendar, and I think it is pretty neat. Enjoy :)
