Ellie and Elmo

At a recent visit, Ellie hung out with Elmo,

and wrestled an alligator

Meet our Hannah

Hannah Elizabeth Marler was born July 14, 2007. She was 8- 1/2 lbs. and 20-1/2 in. long. She was smiling at her Wee Granny at 10 days old.

Not only is she beautiful, she has dimples! Again, it was instant love for Papi and Wee Granny.

Big brother Ian loves her, too. He runs to throw away used bottles and diapers, and insists on his turn to hold his "tsitser!"

Here Daddy leads the way to Ian's soccer tots class. This is a picture worth a thousand words--"Lead me, Daddy. Lead me"

Ian was recovering from bronchitis, so he was only at about half-speed.

He was much more interested in the older kids' class going on at the other end of the gym.

Helping Santa

Christmas 2006 at Wee Granny and Papi's. Ian was the delivery man for presents.

Wow, it wore a guy out.

Auntie Traci with the cousins

Traci holding Ian and Ellie, Christmas 2006 in O'Fallon, MO. She was holding Ellie first, but when Ian saw that, he climbed up to stake out his territory. Let's hope he is more inclined to share come the end of July!

More recent family pix

Here are some updated family pictures as of Dec. 2006. One new baby per year is a good start!

Katie or Ellie?

I found some old pictures of Katie at 9 months. They kinda look like Ellie, don't you think?
Go to to compare.
