Wrapped Up

Dave is overjoyed. He gets to cuddle without exerting himself by tiring out his arm muscles.

The 2007 Baby Summit in Geneva...

...has begun. They're hammering out an agenda in this photo, and their aides are scurrying to and fro with important diplomatic communiques about ways to keep their parents awake without violating strategic arms limitation treaties. Or something.

Smug isn't he?

He knows how superior he is.

Christmas comes but once a year...

...unless you're an Etler, and then it comes early and often. Stay tuned for more Christmas photos over the next two weeks.

Aizay's Christmas shopping list


I sat in front of the computer today and this is what I found. Aizay accidently left this Walmart page up. I see he is getting me a blender and he's getting Dave a TMX Elmo (but we really know who's going to be playing with that).

This is my first day on "reduced effort" (officially, anyway), to take care of Coraline. She's rewarding me with smiles.

Are you going to watch the New England Patriots vs the Pittsburgh Bad Guys today?

I was just reading sports news and Aizay pointed at a picture of Randy Moss and said, "Is that a Patriot?" I said, "Yes, you can see it says 'Patriots' here," as I pointed to his jersey. Then Aizay pointed to a picture of Ben Roethlisberger and said, "Is this the bad guy? Is the words 'bad guy' on his helmet?"

Teaching Gracie new things...



Special thanks to Linda S. for helping the Etlers out this week by covering some of the gap in our daycare situation. She's a real friend. She even sends us pictures and movies during the day to keep us entertained.

This is one she sent to us today. She secretly listened in and transcribed Coraline and Grace engaging in girl talk.

If you don't think this is cute, you're dead inside.



If I were Grace's parents, I'd be concerned about some older boy who runs around with his diaper showing chillin' with my daughter.
