Bryce learned to roll over. Know this stuff is kind of boring but I know the grandparents want to see it/hear it. Bryce also went to his first swim lesson. It says you can bring kids 4 months and older. There were some pretty young kids, Bryce being one of them. Bryce made it about 10 minutes until he was crying so hard we figured enough. Mostly the Dads are the ones in the water with the kids and the Moms are watching. I thought the whole thing was a big hassle, but very amusing for the 10 minutes Damon and Bryce were in the water. When they starting singing the wheels on the bus go round and round I thought Damon would sneak off to the other end of the pool. But he played along and even sang. He said there were some Dads that took the kids into the dressing room to get them changed. I said, Oh good, you can do that part too. He said, the dads in the dressing room looked scared to death. Guess I am stuck with that job.

Tarn chasing

We celebrated my brother's marriage this weekend (KC married Laurel 1/4/2010) with a family trip to Leavenworth. We had so much fun! Thanks Mom and Dad. Bryce got to go swimming for his first time, saw fireworks, and a horse. He seemed unimpressed by it all, he'd rather just have grandma and grandpa. Damon and I got a much needed night out with the newlyweds. We also got to go snowshoeing alone. We'd take Bryce, but he can't really hold his head up yet. There is nothing like being up before anyone else, watching the snow fall, thanks Bryce for your 4:30 wake up calls.

RIP Precious Dairy Monster

In memory of the precious dairy monster, Bryce would like you to meet his hair dresser. We so sadly lost one of the coolest cats ever. He was so soft. He was the best hunter and avoided being eaten by the monsters in the woods. He also survived 104 E. 11th in Ellensburg. He lived in cat heaven with my parents! He even regularly got to stay with my grandmother who fed him like crazy. What a lucky cat with lots of people he had trained to love him! We will miss him so much!

We made it!

We made it through our first week of day care. I can't really say it was good or bad. Bryce seems to be surviving. Probably better than we are really. It is so hard to look through the window and see him strapped to a chair crying. But such are the choices we have made. It appears to impossible for them to follow his schedule so we are probably going to give up on that. He is so tired at night when we get home, he sleeps most of the evening. Kind of depressing, but only 5.5 months to go and I will be home with him for a couple of months. I started working full time and the middle school and it will be challenging and I am looking forward to learning a lot. We took Bryce to an art opening last night and showed him the art. I asked Damon as we walked in "is it wierd to bring a baby here?" I still don't know, there weren't any other babies. This morning we took Tarn out for a much needed hike. He proceeded to chase a coyote up the canyon. Fortunately, he came back after a few minutes. Bryce stayed up for a bit of the hike.
