ran.dom.

well hello there. been a while huh. things are good here. been a busy 8 days since we last talked. got limited time {and energy} to do a total recall but i knew i had to get something up before our parents started sending hate mail to us for not posting. so here's some of what we got going on 'round here...

still working on the self-feeding thing. i think we might be falling into the one step forward..two steps back pattern.

i try to let her do it in the afternoon so that when harold gets home he doesn't even notice or care about the mess because he's so ready to get his hands on that little girl. is that pathetic or what! ;)
i'll keep trying though. another thing she is doing is putting her belongings not where they belong. like last week harold opened his briefcase and found her socks stuffed in the pocket. and the other day i found her sippy cup with juice in it, in the buffet. and i wonder why we have ants....

and of course her first day of school last friday. was supposed to be wednesday but she was under the weather so friday was the day. not a good day. lots of tears the teacher said. she goes again tomorrow so we'll see. she's had ulcers in her mouth this weekend which popped up saturday so i'm starting to think it was more stressful for her than i realize. but anyway, here she was carrying her lunch bag around before i changed her and got off to her first day....

i'll keep you updated about the school thing. pray for us. she needs to be okay with being somewhere besides 6 inches from me. {not that i'm complaining}

she's also into copying every thing i do. which is okay most of the time. like when i put the keys into the door or curl my eyelashes or dance. it is cute to see her try to figure out this world. but it's not so cute when she sees me put on pants and immediately squats down because she sees me do that to loosen them up. that was a reality check. gotta watch myself...

despite her malady, we watched the georgia game with friends saturday and she got to wear her too small cheerleading outfit {thanks to uncle tim} and i must admit that she was pretty darn cute even if she wasn't in orange and blue...

and lastly the builtins are coming along. gotta a little more fine-tuning to do, but georgia {and maggie} love them. this has become georgia's favorite spot so i guess we aren't putting in that bottom shelf just yet. more to come about those.

so again...we're pretty good here. promise it won't be this long before we talk again. enjoy your tuesday. love from us all...

Okay, for some reason this post has cracked me up in alot of ways. I love what you said about G copying everything you do and the fact she squats down when you put on your pants. That just made me laugh out loud!! Then, I laughed een harder when I saw that sweet baby in her too little cheerleading outfit! I can just see you being concerned about that, but she was cute, although she would be much cuter in orange and blue! Praying that today at school went much smoother for her! I know it is tough, but she will get more comfortable with it! Good to talk to you yesterday! Love to all of you!!
