it's been a while...

...nearly three months! Nina is a total charmgirl. She eats tons of things -- pizza and pineapple and tofu and grilled chicken with an Indonesian spice rub and hummus and on and on. She drinks from a little straw cup, though she needs to learn to stop her sips, as she just drinks way too much and sputters otherwise. She's pulling herself up onto anything, and this past weekend, she climbed up the 2 steps from the family room into the kitchen, and she started saying...mama!

Even though it's been so long, this is just a drop-in post to remind myself to post more. We're doing great -- making our own yogurt and ice cream and soap (H makes it and people love it!) -- I built a raised bed a couple of weeks ago and we put in a veggie garden, and in general I think we're headed in a good direction, family-wise. Plus, our new radiator covers make me swoon. The radiator covers in two bedrooms, though they represent an outlay of money rather than crafty or handy effort, are also my latest delights, as they make our home look more, well, homey.

and a snapshot of the girl who makes our home look homey.

It is hard to believe that anything [B][URL=http://www.mbtplus.com/]mbt sneakers[/URL][/B] so inherently ugly as the MBT shoe could ever catch on [U]mbt sneakers[/U] with either the younger generation or the fitness fanatics but it has. [B]mbt sandals[/B] The shoes or I suppose they should be called trainers have thick curved soles and wide straps across the front. Currently [U][B]discount mbt shoes[/U][/B] the are available in over 20 countries and have sold more than a million pairs a year. Considering that they have a price tag of around $200 it is even [B]mbt discount shoes[/B] more remarkable.

MBT shoes, which stand for Masai [B]mbt shoes cheap[/B] Barefoot Technology were invented by Karl Muller a Swiss engineer. He [B]MBT[/B] suffered back and knee problems but on a trip to Korea he noticed [U][B]mbt discount shoes[/U][/B] that after walking barefoot through paddy fields the symptoms were relieved. With further [U]mbt discount shoes[/U] research he discovered that the Masai tribesmen from Kenya did not suffer back problems [B]MBT shoes[/B] and had perfect posture. Putting these two facts together he decided that [U]mbt sneakers[/U] the answer was because they were walking on soft surfaces [U]mbt shoes best prices[/U] which yielded as they trod on them. This [U]mbt shoes review[/U] was unlike in Europe and America where we tend to walk on firm surfaces such as sidewalks.

The first MBT was manufactured in 1996 and soon [U][B]mbt walking shoes[/U][/B] became popular on continental Europe. Since then many celebrities have [B]mbt shoes cheap[/B] been seen sporting MBTs. The concept basically is that the [U][B]mbt shoes clearance[/U][/B] curved sole creates instability as you walk, which [U][B]mbt sneakers[/U][/B] mimics the effect of walking barefoot. To counteract this the foot uses muscle to counter this [B][URL=http://www.mbtplus.com/]mbt discount shoes[/URL][/B] and creates a natural body training effect.

The makers claim that this natural instability [B]mbt walking shoes[/B] strengthens the muscles, increases muscle activity, calorie [B]mbt discount shoes[/B] burn and blood circulation. They also say that it reduces the shock forces [U]MBT shoes[/U] on joints which help prevent a variety of degenerative muscular and skeletal problems [U][B]discount mbt shoes[/U][/B] including back pain.
