Big (slightly sad) girl!

I went to get Kaiya after her nap yesterday and she was standing up in her crib! I thought it was really cute so after changing her diaper and whatnot, I got my camera, put her back in, and tried to take a picture. Apparently she thought I was trying to put her back to bed because this was the result...The close up just made it worse.I did manage to get this really creepy, really chubby pose.
And this "almost" smile.

So much for that Kodak moment.
Anyway - on to some other fun stuff:
Here's Kaiya showing me her new teefs. (Which are totally coming in crooked; should I be worried?)
And she loves to crawl around with stuff hanging out of her mouth. It's usually a sock or the ear of a stuffed animal... this time it was a necklace smuggled by Isabel from Nana Walker's house. (I've got to remember to give that back.)

just a thought...

I was talking to my friend Jen about Yann Martel’s Life of Pi recently, and she reminded me of the following idea -

The author refers to agnostics as being caught up in “the thrall of reason, that fool’s gold for the bright.” This line is so telling of our generation. I think that agnosticism is a common fallback for people who consider themselves to be too smart for religion, but to me, it just seems like they’re too lazy for it. (At least atheists believe in something.)

Maybe God exists… Maybe not… There’s no structure, so there’s no accountability. And what's the point in living if not to progress? I think Martel sums up his argument effectively with these words: “To choose doubt as a philosophy of life is akin to choosing immobility as a means of transportation.”

Goodbye. Again.

My mom and dad got to see about twelve hours of THIS yesterday -- man, Idaho is boring -- on their drive back to Washington. I am so sick of saying goodbye to them. They came to visit for a week after dropping Matty off at BYU Idaho, and I'm not sure when I'll see them again (February, maybe?). This sucks. Will someone please give my dad a million dollars so that he can retire and move here?

Meg's Miracle A Success!

Thanks to everyone who came out last Saturday to support Meg's Miracle. We were able to raise a lot more money than expected and had a ton of fun in the process! Laurel has (as always)posted an excessive amount of pictures on her blog/Picasa if you're interested.... I just thought these two were funny. Kaiya was SO good all day. Look at that bald beauty!
