you're a wizard, harry

Update on the kids:


Pearl will be 6 months at the end of January. She continues to be the smiliest baby that ever lived. Sometimes we catch her smiling at the wall. She's started babbling and is all about the "b" sounds and blowing air through her lips. Pearl and Milo have started entertaining each other and laughing with each other a lot. I love it. She is the sunshine in all of our lives.

Milo turned two last week. We sang the "Happy Birthday" song to him all day, and he was very pleased, pretending to blow out the candles every time. Then he had a donut "cake" for the real deal. Milo's favorite things are: basketball, cousins, basketball, candy, Daddy, basketball, reading, and TV. He makes us laugh every day. Favorite phrases: "Silly Mommy!" "What's gonna work? Teamwork!" "Hi Pearl! You wake up?" "I shoot basketball!" (We regret the day that we must inform him that, because of his genes, basketball isn't in his future.)

The "teamwork" line sounds suspiciously High School Musical-ish.

Sarah, get your head in the game- it's Wonder Pets!

How very, very cute! Hey, I've known some short, amazing basketball players over the years. A 5'1" girl at IHS was all over the place. The other players couldn't catch her. AG

Speaking of musicals, I'll be doing a musical marathon next week. In the morning, I'm taking 100 students to the Herberger Theatre to see "The Pajama Game", and in the evening I'm going with Marge to see "Hairspray" at the Dodge. Can't wait! AG

So, so cute!

Mugsy Bogues (I have no idea how to spell his name) is like 5'3", so I think Milo CAN be a b-ball player someday.

Good call, Wendy. I was thinking of saying something about lil' Mugsy.
