Oh, Beautiful

Before we get too excited with new baby posts, here's L remembering 9/11 in the only way she knows how.
Hard to believe the event that defined me and Krissey's generation will hardly be understood by our little ones. Either way "yay, America!"

Our little one was born this morning at 6:44!
No stats yet, stay tuned.

Dad's Brains, Mom's Looks

After dinner tonight, (Pei Wei btw, I don't care how much you love Panda--don't eat there in NM) L decided that she had watched her dad's chopsticks skills long enough to attack her own Lo Mein. Have to admit, she's pretty darn good.

Around and Around

Grandma B's in town. What does that mean? Horses! (aka the carousel in the mall) This is L's third or fourth ride on the carousel today:

Becky took us to dinner tonight and L didn't want to go, so Grandma sweetened the deal with a return trip back to the horses. Despite not having a nap, L somehow made it through dinner without too much drama and survived the near bedtime ride on the white horse. The best part was, somehow this shot managed to focus exactly where I wanted it...who needs a DSLR anyway? (oh yeah, me.)

Chicken Pox Induced Mood Swings

Don't you love how they the follow up a series of morning tantrums with absolute cuteness like this?

Bath Time!

Eating dinner tonight, Little B was so tired from our long weekend. Brady decided it was bath time. L looks at Krissey and I and informs us: "Big tub! Bib off! Down!"
I'm not gonna lie, that was ten minutes of quality entertainment.

Fiesta III

It's that time again, you know, that time of year when hundreds of hot air balloons wake me up as they buzz over my house with the sound of burning propane. That's right, Balloon Fiesta is here, and contrary to the tone which started this post we actually love it. A lot.
Being our third year in the Land of Enchantment, Fiesta was a little different this year. Not that it isn't spectacular to see hundreds of gorgeous balloons take off at the same time, but it does kind of have a "seen it" feel to it. I took my camera, but only took three pictures--of Londyn.
She was pretty funny this year, and made the trip completely worth it. I'm not sure anything can beat her new found skill of redirecting my head so she can point our the balloons that she likes. I'm pretty sure the elephant was her fav, but I'm hoping she secretly appreciated SpiderPig--even if she doesn't get the joke.
Once again we did get to host family for the event, my siblings had planned to come down since spring, and I think we all realize that Ty should be here us--but as sad as that thought its, it's been good to reminisce on our favorite memories. We've also discovered that Curt gets his stomach from my dad--as the massive increase of green chile into his diet.
Anyway, since you're really here for the pics, I did snap a few at the night glow and balloon race last night. Enjoy.
