Laundry list

Just a few things from around here lately. Last week Nico climbed out of her crib, the big bump she made on the way down and her escalated crying made me leap out of bed. I almost stepped on her when I entered her room, "Nico! What are you doing on the floor?". She has not tried to get out of her crib since the incident, but now I know she can and it makes me a little worried.

Nico likes music, and she likes to dance to it, tap her hands, and nod her head to the beat. We love this new-ish trick. Nico makes her toys growl. She says whoa and has a good surprised face when something happens that she particularly likes. Nico has started to throw really good fits, I'm talking leg kicking, head thrown back, big tear fits. It is kind of funny, but not really.

Last night we brought Nico into bed with us because she would not stop crying (she is getting her year molars, ouch!) so Mike started making this whooshing/whistling noise and she took one look at him, raised her leg back as far as it would go and kicked him right square in the mouth. She did that a few times to get Mike to stop making that noise. Guess she's not a big fan of whistling.

Her hair is now long enough to put into pigtails. This is quite an accomplishment, and quite cute. Nico still likes dogs very much. She is not scared of them and is very gentle when she pets them. With smaller dogs she will sort of cradle their faces in her hand to get a good look at them. We have a new stroller, Nico thinks it is a jungle-gym. Nico likes to feed herself with her spoon, and no she does not want our help.

So there is a laundry list of some things I've been noticing and thinking about. And now the pictures.

Something random: I've always been pretty intimidated of cooking large cuts of red meat. I decided to take the plunge and I bought a 12 pound prime rib. We had some friends over to share the feast, and I will say that the meat was delicious.

Nico is a doll. I wub her.

I am so intimidated by cooking red meat. I feel like the only way to make it is on the grill and we don't have one. Good job Bille. I am impressed.

wow, look at that meat! I bet Mike was in steak heaven... kinda like that fatty steak Keoni had at Haleiwa Joes. YUM

Nico sounds all grown up now... falling out of cribs. ha.
Kai saw her photos and remembered who she was.

Don't judge my grammar/punctuation errors now that you will be a pro.

We miss you too.

first off... Nico's piggies are the cutest thing.

secondly.. i love the part about her cradling the dogs faces in her hands. it's very tender.

lastly...i heart that you made giant meat. i hope to accomplish the same thing, some day.
