I'll get the hand of this thing!

I woke up this morning and realized that I haven't updated this thing in forever and I have cute pictures of my baby girl from her first birthday. I decided to figure this blog thing out and get the pictures on today!
We have been crazy busy! We are still going strong in school and we are over the half way mark and are very excited about that! I think there is going to have to be a vacation in May after we graduate to celebrate and not have to think about anything! My clinicals are almost over and they have been quite fun! Jerusha and I love James so much! James is a great dad and such a hard worker. I think he is more excited about this school year to be over than I am! The end is in sight!
This morning, I also decided that I wanted to try to pull Jerusha's hair into some kind of something on the top of her head. There were a few problems though. Her hair is long and thin (whoda thunk?!), she is one year old and doesn't hold still, and then, about 2 second into gathering her hair, she didn't want it done. We started out on the computer chair with her on my lap. I couldn't fill her hands with something to do fast enough to get the little barette in. Then we moved into the bathroom on the counter. That lasted about 2 minutes, without success, and ended with a cup of water still on the counter and almost a new outfit 20 minutes into the day. Next, she sat on her birthday big girl potty and I was in the tub. She knows how to get of of it! Last we ended in the highchair and she wasn't very happy but I succeeded and she has about 1 inch of hair sticking straight off the top of her head. Needless to say that my 10 minute job to get a hair clip in, stayed about 5 minutes before she pulled it out! I think the best part of the story is when I gave her a cup of OJ and put the clip in while she drank in about 20 seconds!
Jerusha actually has been to the doctor about 3 times in the last week. The day before her birthday, she go pink eye, the day after her birthday, she had shots, and then Sunday she got a cough and James took her in Wednesday when it hadn't gotten better. She has a small case of bronchitis but is still happy!
