While they were here, we did lots of fun things including numerous trips to the park, some shopping, lots of meals, and even a ride on the bus to the San Francisco Auto Show. But one of the real highlights was baking cookies with Grandma...
It was quite the site, and boy are the cookies delicious. If you liked the pictures, you'll really like the video!
Thanks so much to everyone for making the long trip to come and see us. We really enjoyed having you here, and can't wait to see you again very soon!

Needless to say, Alexandra loves the fall festival concept. Not for the pumpkins and scarecrows and bails of hay. Nope, instead, for the inflatable children's activities that seem to accompany such things.
She spent quite a bit of time bouncing in that thing. We were very surprised at how well she did avoiding and fending off the older kids. There was only one minor collision, and a kiss from mommy cleared that all up.
In the end, we walked away with a stash of pumpkins, a worn out little kiddo, and a lot of fun. We took quite a few pictures that you can see on the photos page.

When asked about her decision, the parents feelings were mixed. "I'm very happy with the decision, and think that its a wise choice," said her father. "I thought my child would be smart enough to pick sunny Palo Alto over snowy Ithaca. And what about sports? Does Cornell even have varsity athletics?" said her mother. Although both schools are a fine choice, the parents will continue to investigate state school options, thereby making their large state tax payments worth something.

Alexandra just keeps getting bigger, saying more funny things, and playing up a storm! I'm stunned by this picture where she looks about 10 years old. Look at that form! Yup, dad taught her everything she knows ;-)
We are slightly worried that even though she is only 21 months (next week) old, that Alex is prematurely aging to about the 2 year old range. I'm sure it has nothing to do with Grandmas spoiling her the past few weeks, or this new sister thing she has going on. We'll monitor the situation and see how things progress.

- juliedelphia - Julie Davisson's fun filled adventures
- The Price Family - Andy & MacKenzie's blog with a focus on Peyton
- The Dodsons - Molly and Andrew's adventures with twins
- The Dholakias - Laura and Sameer's blog
- The Mooskis - Scott and DR's blog from Austin, TX
We'll keep posting photos, but now I'm thinking maybe we should post them on the home page instead of the photos page, so we keep traffic all going to the same place? Let me know what you think, consolidate or no? (By the way, I also posted some more photos on the photos page.)

Reese is now one week old, and doing very well. Although she still enjoys the plush life at Kaiser (constant care and attention, tanning beds, experienced nurses waiting on her hand and foot) we're anxiously awaiting her homecoming. Keep your fingers crossed!

And so the sibling rivalry begins. Not to be outdone by her sister Alexandra who was born 2 weeks early, Reese Angela decided to come a full 5 weeks ahead of plan! After an innocent enough phone call earlier in the day from Krista saying, "I'm having some contractions, but I'm sure its nothing..."
... Reese Angela Glotzbach was born on Friday August 4, 2006 at 8:11pm weighing a mere 5 pounds 5 ounces and a full 19 inches long. Although the doctors are keeping a close eye on her to make sure all is well, she is doing wonderfully as is Mom (aka Krista). Alexandra will get to meet her new baby sister tomorrow morning, and I'm sure she is very excited!

So we went to the beach! Granted, for those of you in warmer climates, you might be thinking... "the beach, when its only 68 degrees?" But trust me, even though her little teeth were chattering, Alexandra had a wonderful time. I can honestly say I don't think I've seen her this happy in her entire life.
As you start into your week, and work or life is hard, just remember that for a 17 month old an hour at the beach is full of happiness and wonder.

The "peanut" (can you call a girl a peanut?) is still scheduled to arrive on September 10th. Thats 17 weeks and 5 days along, for those of you keeping track at home.

It seems like only yesterday we were sitting with little 1-month old Alexandra watching the Steelers lose the AFC championship to the Patriots. This year, the Steelers kicked the pants off the Broncos and are headed to the Super Bowl... and of course we attribute this dramatic turnaround to our loudly cheering one-year-old Steelers fan! Go Steelers!

... but have you seen this thing on my vest?! We had a great time at the zoo - Alex loved the puddles, the rain, the fountain, and the peanut butter sandwich she had for lunch. She did at least growl at the Lion! He stayed put and yawned in her general direction (the lazy cat) but she was not put off. She still roars like the best of 'em. For more zoo and general baby pics from this week, click here!
