We're heading out to Arizona tomorrow for a much-needed Colbie fix. Grandparents can only stand looking at pictures and videos and Skyping for so long, and then we need the real thing! So while we're gone, I'm putting the 1950s t.v. test pattern back up.

Just imagine us in the 70-degree weather, romping in the park with Colbie. It's her birthday this month. Doesn't it seem like just yesterday that they brought her home from the hospital? And now she's this close to walking, jabbers away a mile a minute, reads books, eats real people food, and has the most amazing smile ever smiled.

We've been fortunate to be able to see Colbie every couple of months for the first year of her life, even though we're 2,000 miles away. I was so afraid she would forget who we were between visits, but I think the weekly Skyping really helps.
