i'm still alive...

I wish I could say that I haven't blogged in a week because I've been busy unpacking and organizing the new house...but that wouldn't be true.

Yes, I have been doing a little unpacking here and there, but in all reality I still have a LOT to do, (haven't even gotten my dresser in order, been living off the piles of clothes). The truth is...we have AMAZING neighbors and we've been spending lots of time hanging out with them during the day, mostly outside enjoying the awesome weather but also a little inside during the bad weather. We also hang out with them at night sometimes too, and go on walks...they're gonna get sick of us real quick! I've never had next door and two doors down neighbors with kids the same age as mine. The kids all play really well together and it allows us moms a chance to talk and have an adult conversation. Marcia and I are amazed at how similar our little four year old girls's crazy. Her little lady is one month younger than Naomi and they have many similar qualities (good and the not so good). It's so refreshing to know I'm not alone in my little world of raising a little 4 year old drama queen!

The other thing that has kept me from blogging is this little cutie. She's become much more needy in the past week. She doesn't want to be put down and always wants to know whats going on. Her naps haven't been as good lately and she must be going through a growth spurt as well. She started "solid" foods last week and LOVES to eat! I've actually already started giving her two meals a day, cereal at one and so far sweet potatoes. Her nose has been draining like crazy lately and she's got a blood shot eye...wondering if she's got another ear infection or just a cold. Well, at least she's super cute and the snot doesn't bother me :). Here's a few shots I grabbed of her the other day after her nap! LOVE LOVE LOVE these awesome windows in our home!!

More from this little "photo shoot" coming soon!!
