Bella has been holdin' out on me! She acts like she doesn't talk, but she's got all kinds of words up her sleeves!

Two days ago, we picked up her Aunt Savanna, and Bella bursted out, "Nah Na! Nah Na!" We couldn't believe our ears!

She said "Dog" and "Bella" yesterday, and this morning said "Choo Choo" and "Noo-Doh" (noodle). "Bee Opp" means Clean up, and usually we sing this during the diaper changing. Very exciting. Thank you Barney for that song.

She still does sign language for the essentials (Please, Help, Eat, Drink, All done), but she's started to use her words and it's so exciting!


Ty made it to Utah in 4 days with all of our belongings! Whew! He's so happy to be done with that trip, and happy to be in our new home!

Also, last week he went to Texas for the Game Developers Conference (GDC) where he showcased his game at a booth, and received "Staff Pick" for the IndiePub Competition! Read what they wrote about it Here.

He had a great time networking, making new friends and getting live feedback for his game. He was really impressed with the IndiePub staff and had a great time getting to know them.

Ty is back in Utah now and we are missing him a lot! Bella misses her Daa-DEE!!!

Giving pointers.


The 3.5 hour flight yesterday from Orlando to Denver was long, but we survived. The DVD player was awesome in THEORY, but unfortunately it only lasted about 10 minutes. BUST.

Last moments in the Orlando Airport with Grandma Judy.

Luckily we sat next to a really sweet and tolerant lady (because she has a granddaughter Bella's age). She let her tug on her earphones, climb all over her, and lie on her comfy jacket in the middle seat. Thank you dear Nice Lady!

A sucker and a movie - only lasts 10 minutes for Bella.

The second flight to the Springs was only 18 minutes and a very bumpy 18 minutes! She made a sweet little friend named Grace who is 2yrs. They tried playing with a ball I brought, but it was more like launch-it-at-passing-strangers. I loved watching the lack of coordination between the two of them!

We arrived safely in Colorado Springs and have a full 9 days ahead of us! Bella has warmed up to her Grandpa Randy really quickly (who she hasn't seen in a year) and she loves playing peek-a-boo and retrieving randomly thrown items for him. It's hysterical.

Bella hangin with Grandpa Randy.

My sister Madi took off work today, so we'll spend some time together, along with my cousin Amber and her kids. Sunday we drive out to Nebraska to see my grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins...the who shebang. I can't wait to see everyone!

Crunchy leaves, crisp air. I've missed you.
