Year gone by

Last year on his birthday, I remember thinking Nate was so big, capable of so much, and looking back now at photos from his first birthday, I see that he was still a baby. Not any more. This walking, talking, iPad-wielding, headstrong little person is definitely a kid. A delightful, hilarious, whip-smart little kid.

I can't wait to see what the next year brings. Happy birthday, little man.

Accent Vlog

A bunch of the ladies from The Blathering (less than three weeks away!!) have been posting Vlogs (video blogs) showing off our regional accents, or lack thereof. I actually recorded this last Friday, but neglected to post it all weekend. Better late than never! And at least there's a cute, albeit demanding, toddler, to distract from my inane ramblings.

Watching this again, it's clear that: (1) Wow, I'm opinionated, and (2) I'm opinionated about things that don't matter in the slightest.

So what do you think? Accent or not? If you'd like to participate, you can find the words and questions here.
