Of black eyes and Batmobiles

Today was a day of many firsts. First black eye (though that is probably an exaggeration), first Batmobile, first time celebrating Uncle Karl's birthday... Natalie was standing up by the TV stand and fell over, hitting the knob just below her eye. She has a nice little bruise to show for it. But nothing makes you feel better like a new Batmobile from Daddy. And yes, that is a baby toy.

Karl's 30!

Happy Birthday, Karl!

Caleb and Natalie

....need I say anything?

Birthdays, birthdays

At binder park you can actually feed the giraffes little giraffe biscuits. Not to be confused with Cheerios, right Natalie? Yummy.
This is actually a real live hippo. It's neat how you can get so close.

In honor of Natalie's 8th month and my 28 years, we celebrated with a visit to the zoo. I thought I would share the best over heard zoo comments of all times. (I only have 2 actually, but they are still my favorite.)

1. "Here Mr. Pe-can" (says the little girl to the wandering Peacock)
2. "Why do the monkeys have boobs on their heads?" (little boy referring to monkeys with bumps on their heads. When mommy doesn't hear him ask the question, he repeats it several more times until everyone in the entired state of Michigan can hear him)

No sleep

My work schedule never changes. Every other weekend I do a 16 hour shift that lasts overnight. I get home in the morning and usually stay up all day with Natalie. But every other weekend, without fail, my parents ask if I'm working a double shift again. And every weekend they act shocked and suprised that I am indeed working that many hours in one shot. They know I'm working it, but I think they hope that it has somehow magically changed. I guess you're never too old for your parents to worry about you.

Natalie's Big Day

After tipping over the cat's water dish, tackling and kissing Caleb, and utilizing wind energy, Natalie picked up the grate covering the vent upstairs and dropped it all the way down 2 stories of our house, never to be retrieved again.
