The smartest 20 month old ever

Tonight we discovered that our crazy little Macy can count to 3. She tries to go further but says "five" instead of "four." She was lining her rubber ducks on the side of the tub during bath time and then Justin would knock each one into the water, resulting in screams and squeals of delight from Macy. As she would line them up Justin would count them but he noticed that after he said "one" she would yell "two, wee!(three)" and then "hive!" Okay, so she isn't even two yet so her pronunciation isn't them best but at least she has the order down. We made her do it several times to make sure it wasn't in our heads. Kylie almost rolled over today too but she was in the bath at the time and got a face full of water so I think that has discouraged her from further attempts. Oh well, any day now she will figure it out.

We also went to this Winter Trails even that REI put on in this park in town. They had a lot of sports equipment to try out so we checked out cross country skiis. We spent a lot of time bundling up the kids because there was supposed to be dogsled races that we thought Macy would love but after we had been there a while we discovered that they had been cancelled. Bummer. we also tried out some cross country skis but it really just made me want to go down hill skiing, something I haven't been able to do in years due to being pregnant the last two winters in a row. Macy wasn't really enjoying beings strapped to dad's back and Kylie was getting incredibly heavy strapped to my front so We decided to get the girls out of the 10 degree temperature and I took them home while Justin played and then skate skied with my cousin Randy. He really enjoyed it so he may have a new hobby to work on.

Late in the afternoon we went to a baptism for a convert in our ward. I somehow got asked to speak which would have been okay except the children were screaming in the hall while Justin and a friend tried to quiet them. I was distracted the entire time I spoke so I am sure nothing I said made any sense at all. Oh well.
