Mea Culpa

It has been brought to my attention by a good number of you that I have been neglecting my blog duties! I don't have any really viable excuses other than that I was too busy in the States having a damn good time, and now that I am back in Germany I am too busy unpacking, trying to remember how to do laundry, catching up on my "volunteer" duties, and re-baby-proofing my house.

Jillsie is now 18 months old--a tried and true toddler. She can sing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" (aka "Teekle Teekle Diddy Stah") and occasionally speaks in complete sentences ("I sittin'" or "I hold Mommy hand" or "I need coffee"). We both miss all of our friends and family whom we visited in the States like you wouldn't believe, but we are also pretty psyched to be back on our own turf, catching up with our friends here. Zephie & Tilly are also faring well (survived the flight quite well this time), and the Gutsy Dad is staying safe and staying out of trouble.

Now, without further ado, I will get to what you all really want anyway.... some pictures. Before I jump back in time to tell you about what we've been up to since Thanksgiving, let me show you something more recent. Here is Jillsie practicing "Old McDonald" on my parents' piano last week. She only knows he e-i-e-i-o part. She also likes to get down and dance along with her singing, when she is not accompanying herself on piano...
