In other news, Dan and I celebrated our 8th anniversary yesterday :-) I baked a peach pie for the occasion and we are going out on Friday, which I took off from work. When I think back to all the decisions I've made, marrying Dan is one of the best ones. Love you, babe!

Micah's dedication went really well. Hopefully I'll be able to post more photos and video from that later this week. For now, here's one photo of him after we got home, sitting on the front porch.
We managed to get the kitchen all painted this weekend too--green!

Micah "fixing" the new kitchen
Micah in the living room.
We've managed to lessen the number of boxes we have to unpack, but things are still a little crazy at the new house. Micah's been following Daddy around the house, "fixing" things with his set of Bob the Builder tools. This weekend was a rough one for him. He bumped his top lip (lots of blood, but he was fine) and got a nasty bruise on his leg when he fell while trying to climb up on a chair in the living room! We've been playing that time-tested toddler game, "Guess what the child will eat?" just about every mealtime (Lasagna and apples--Sunday. Crackers and chicken nuggets--Monday. Veggies--never). We also think he might be getting a molar--he's been pretty fussy and had a low-grade fever for a couple nights--so we're taking him into the doc today just to make sure it's not something like an ear infection or sore throat that we can't see. Anyway, I'm hoping that this week is better for him. We're all looking forward to Grandma and Grandpa arriving today from Wisconsin!
This Sunday we are joining a church and having Micah dedicated. We wanted to do this for some time when family could be here, so we're taking advantage of the Inouyes' visit to do this. The dedication is a simple ceremony where our pastor will say a prayer of blessing for Micah and a prayer of guidence for us, as his parents. We will make a committment to educating him about our faith. We believe that we are responsible for ensuring that Micah receives a good education--academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually. I hope that as he grows older and explores his heart, he will make his own decision to follow the way of Christ and become a person characterized by God's love and integrity.

Tomorrow is our big move to the new house! Dan and I have been working on painting and cleaning the new place and hopefully will have a successful move tomorrow. Wish us luck! Here is a video of Micah in the kitchen saying "hello." He is really becoming quite the ham in front of the camera. As you can see, he is holding an ice scraper he found in the backseat of the car :-).
