Book Tag

I've been tagged by Bridgette, so here goes the Book Tag...

Here are the rules:
1. Pick up the nearest book (at least 123 pages).
2. Turn to page 123.
3. Find the 5th sentence.
4. Post the 5th sentence on your blog.
5. Tag 5 people.

I've been halfway through this book, When Elephants Weep by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, for while now, it's a pretty slow read, but it's really interesting. I promise you'll never see animals the same way ever again.
Here's the line: "If it is a social animal it needs company."

I tag Debbie, Chelsea, Denver and my sisters Brittnee & Amy.

Conversation Overheard

I overheard the sweetest conversation between Kaden & his Lion King Simba doll a while ago. It's a talking and dancing Simba. It went a little something like this:
Simba- My Dad taught me how to pounce, did you learn anything today?

Kaden- "No, my Dad's building a fence with Uncle Tim."

Simba- That's Great! I'm gonna be a king when I grow up, what are you gonna be?

Kaden- "Um, a pirate!"

Simba- That's a great idea! Do you have a best friend?

Kaden- "Named Wickett!!"

He didn't know I was listening & Simba just keeps repeating the same questions over & over when you press his ear, so Kaden just kept on answering them. I was pretty funny.

Madison Belle

Here's the newest addition to the family! My sister Amy welcomed this beautiful little girl to the world on Feb.9th. Her name is Madison Belle. Amy had a very rough delivery and was induced 3 weeks early due to high blood pressure. Madison took her sweet time to make her appearance, they started a pitocin drip on Friday afternoon & she wasn't born until Sunday morning! She was admitted to the NICU all week and Amy was finally able to take her home on Friday the 14th.

She has been diagnosed as having Cytomegalovirus which at this point appears benign, but they will be meeting with a Specialist at Doernbecher's next week to find out for sure. She appears very healthy and is a pretty happy little girl!

Kaden is so excited to have a little girl cousin, he talks about her all the time!

She looks so much like her Daddy in this picture.

Her arrival took much longer than we had anticipated so we ended up spending an unexpected night up in Vancouver waiting by the phone. Here is Kaden in mommy-improvised jammies!
