Hi there. My name is Miss Gina.

Hi, my name is Miss Gina Violet Randle. I'm new to this family so I thought I would introduce myself. I was born on April 25, 2011. I was a day late and my mom was induced, so I had no real hurry of getting here. And I've been mellow, happy and ready for any party ever since.

This picture was taken today. I love this outfit and my headband (both a product of my wonderful mother's crafting and shopping talents). I love this blanket and that my Great Grammie and Great Gramps Whitehead made for me. I've rolled over twice, but my mom has missed it both times.

I love to smile at anyone who smiles at me. I love to play with my rattle, links and pacifier. I love to take baths, be sung to, and tickled. I really love my older brother Derek and can't wait to put all of his Legos in my mouth. I love to listen to Muse, watch the leaves on trees, swing in my swing and be held by my mom and dad.

I really don't like to fall asleep, be in my car seat, wear socks or have my nose wiped, but oh well. My parents say they will keep me, so I'll stay and be a part of this killer-awesome family. Oh, and have you heard? I live right by some place called Disneyland now. Everyone really likes it, including me. You should come and visit.

My Cute Nieces

We went to Cleveland last month before we headed to Michigan to Clay and Morgan's reception. I just had to step outside with these cute girls and take a picture. Look how cute and fun they are! I can't believe Lilly is in the first grade, Maggie is reading and Liv is that big. Liv is pretty cool, just like her older sisters. I think she and I get along because she's always ready to party. Love you girls!

Yo Blogga Blogga

One of the fun things about the new job is that they document every day of production with a "Behind the Scenes" video. They have a blog called Yo Blogga Blogga. If you like the show, you should check it out. You should also check it out to see the very enthusiastic work environment I am in now.

I am in the midst of my 3rd week on the show and so far I am liking it a lot.

Uncle Ster is Missed

Derek told us the other day that we could go to Texas and make sure Sterling was okay.

"He went by himself and you aren't supposed to because that's lame."

We explained that he did not go by himself, but went with other missionaires. I think he had a sharing time lesson on missionaries because when I peeked in and checked on him (first day in a new primary) they were talking about different languages.

We sure do miss Uncle Ster around here though. We pray for him every night.

It's been an interesting few weeks for us with the move, but this is the first time all of the siblings have been this far apart from each other. With Clay & Morgan in Kansas, Sterling in Texas and Jennifer "stranded" at the age of 9 in Utah, we create quite the rectangle of sibling locations.

The picture above is when I took Sterling to see Brandon Flowers in Las Vegas a few weeks before he left.

Goodbye Civic

My civic died on me 30 miles before Barstow, CA 2 weeks ago. It was around 110 degrees outside and it blew two cylinders. After being too expensive to fix, we decided to sell it to a junk yard. It served us well, but I do have to say I thought it would take us just a tad longer. It had just over 180,000 miles on it. I took it to Pep Boys just before I drove it down here and they said it would be fine to make the journey. Who would have thought?

More details on the rest of the move as well as the incident to follow...
