Working Out

Lately, Lydia has been attempting to crawl. At least that's what I think she's doing. It's either that or she's doing push-ups.

Sometimes we lend a hand (or leg) to aid in her obsessive need for pumped up arms.

Sometimes it just becomes too hard.

Isn't she cute?

Lydia's Eating Solids!

Lydia is doing something of course we must document it by photograph and share it with the world! We're such proud parents. =) Here is Lydia's first food critique.

"I had heard nothing but rave reviews about this hip and up-and-coming place where adults like to eat called 'The Kitchen' so I decided to give it a try. I must admit, the way people talk about the food produced in this place got me very excited for my first bite. I just couldn't wait to try this new and exotic food called 'rice cereal.' I'm not so sure of their seating methods, however. Their policy of strapping in is a bit much for me."

"Well, the utensils certainly didn't impress. Maybe if you have a set of shiny teeth you would enjoy the feel of metal in your mouth. I, for one, think the owners of 'The Kitchen' could afford to splurge on some more 'gum-friendly' flatware."

"Well, it wasn't the BEST thing I've ever had. A little bland for my tastes, but overall a decent experience. I'll be back. I think 'The Kitchen' just wasn't quite ready for people like me. I'm sure they will be more accomodating the next time I stop by."

Piano Blog

And Now Announcing....(are you excited?)



I've been working on a piano blog for the past couple of weeks. I post daily about the ridiculous things that happen during piano lessons, as well as ridiculous ideas I have. Even if you know NOTHING about piano, it's a fun read (at least I think it is) because it's about kids. So if you've ever taught a kid ANYTHING, you will probably find something to relate to among my posts. Go check it out!

David Archuletta

So David Archuletta was in Murray this week. I had to teach a lesson, but Ryan took Lydia and walked down to the high school (along with the rest of Utah) to see ol' Davey Boy perform. Kind of fun!

Here is Adalyn, Lydia, Caitlyn, Cameron, and Abby. (Abby wasn't happy to be in the picture.)

This next picture is Lydia, Caitlyn, and Cameron. It looks like Caitlyn is mediating a conversation in these pictures.

Lydia: "I'm just so mad at Cameron."
Cameron: "What's she saying about me?"

Caitlyn: "Here, think about this for a minute."

Lydia: "Well, I'll make up if she'll make up."
Caitlyn: "Yeah, I think that's best."
Cameron: "I don't even know what this is about anymore."

And here is what they all looked like 4 months ago.

The Four Jeannes

Grandma Middleton and my mom were here for Women's Conference this weekend. Grandma, Mom, Lydia, and I all share the name Jeanne for our middle name. So we, of course, had to get a picture of all the Jeannes!
