Busy Week!

This week has been extremely busy! I have a feeling life is not slowing down for quiet a while. I am going to attempt to catch up on here as fast as possible:

8) Eliza had her 6-month check up this week! She is 14.4 pounds and 25 inches long!

8) Eliza is sitting up and crawling slowly on her own!! Big changes are on the way!

8) Lulu still loves being a big sister. When Eliza wakes up in the bassinet Lulu says, "Uh oh! Uh oh! Zizzy NOT happy!!!" She then runs to the bed room, climbs up next to the bassinet and pats Eliza on the back until I pick her up. She also loves to give her big enthusiastic hugs and occasionally she tries to pick her up. (I try to discourage that last one).

8) After watching Lulu for a day my MIL asked, "How does she move so fast? One minute she is running the water full blast in the bathroom and the next she has pushed a chair all the way into the kitchen, found a butter knife, and is attempting to carve a piece of the rice crispy treats!" It actually made me feel better. I have been wondering if she moved exceptionally fast or if I was just not used to keeping up with 2-year-olds.

8) We had the house inspection! It went very well! There are very few problems with the house. Tom is going to spend today over at the house painting some exposed wood on the outside of the house so that our Appraiser doesn't slow the loan process when we file for FHA.

8) I have the bedroom and kitchen mostly packed for moving! Before you know it I will be ready to move out of this place! WooHoo!!!

8) We discovered our bugs are German Cockroaches. The hardest kind to kill, found most frequently in apartment buildings, and the second leading cause of air allergies (the first is pollen). No wonder Lulu and Tom have had such bad allergies!! I can't wait to leave the bugs!!!!!!

8) After today Tom will only have two more Saturday classes left for this semester!!!! Next semester it will be evening classes during the week! I much prefer evening classes to losing my whole weekend to school.

8) I figured out how to really good gluten free pumpkin bread and white bread this week!!!

8) Next week we make the 485 mile trek to my home town for Thanksgiving!!! I can't wait to see everyone!


  1. So excited for you! Lots of fun/good news!

  2. Maybe Lulu should race the rest of the family to your home town. Don't you have to wonder who'd be first to complete the 485 mile trek?

  3. I don't know who you wrote this for but you helped a brotehr out.

  4. Action requeirs knowledge, and now I can act!

  5. There's nothing like the rleeif of finding what you're looking for.
