Maren's screensaver has random pictures that we've loaded onto the computer. Today, Eowyn saw cousin Natalie's picture on the screen and called out "Nanny!" (not because she's stupid. she just can't say "Natalie" yet.)

It's a boy?????????

Maybe? Frau Doktor today was pretty sure, but not 100%. He(?) had his(?) legs tucked under, the umbilical cord was there, he(?) was sitting at an odd angle...the whole thing looked like doppler radar to me. Maren's convinced, but I could see Eowyn was going to be a girl, this just look like a massive blob.

If its a boy, we'll name him Winthrop Norbert. Anyone with that kind of name is bound to be rich. Picked on, but rich. If its a girl, it'll be Natalia Rosa. But why does that have such a familiar ring to it.......oh well.

By the way, it was hotter here than in Marshall, TX, today. Probably much less humidity.

Eowyn's first Nutella Broetchen

Eowyn has been enjoying some good German bread. She loves the crusty French bread you get at restaurants. This morning I went to a bakery to pick up fresh rolls (Broetchen) for breakfast.
Here are a few pictures of her first German roll with Nutella.

We're here

We're in Germany. Just thought I'd post here very quickly. We're tired, but Maren's family is here, the dogs are grateful to be out of the kennels, and we're wired.

We'll post pics of us in Germany (i.e., giant beer steins, lederhosen, and bratwursts) as soon as we can.

more pictures

ok, this might be overdoing it a little...but here is the last batch of pictures from today.

more pictures

Here are some more pictures of Eowyn playing on the mall playground and on grandpa's school bus.

Eowyn's first professional haircut

This is my first post so I'm sure Nate will edit if after I go to bed...
I won't try to be funny or witty but I do have something the masses are screaming pictures.
We are staying with Nate's parents in Michigan and went to the mall today to get Eowyn her first professional haircut. She didn't want to sit in the chair by herself so mommy had to sit in the chair and Eowyn sat in mommy's lap. Then we had to bribe her with a sucker to sit still. The lady took about 2.5 inches off! I didn't know her hair had gotten that long. Of course we think she looks super cute with her new big girl hair cut. After her hair cut she got to play on the playground and climb around on some gigantic fruit and furniture. She loved it.
Once we got home grandpa stopped by to let Eowyn play on his school bus. The dogs were in the backyard but decided to jump the fence and hop on the school bus as well.
Enjoy the pictures of our girls. It will probably be a while till we post again since we are leaving for Germany next Wednesday.
