Sienna celebrated her first birthday on January 2, 2009. I've realized how neat it is to have her birthday right at the beginning of the year. For Christmas I gave our family calendars with pictures of Sienna that correspond to each month in 2008. They can watch her grow from a newborn to a toddler throughout 2009!

It would be neat if asthma was like a sport. Instead of writing dry, humorless posts, we could write exciting and entertaining posts about our theories and herald new inventions like the new vaccine that's supposed to cure allergies .
Another thing sports writers do that's fun is make fake rankings like this . They have fun writing these, and we have fun reading them. So I thought, for the fun of it, to rank 10 asthma medicines from worst to best (in my humble opinion of course).
