An impromptu trip brought Auntie Shayna down from Maine for a few days. WOOT! Shayna JUST finished her MA degree at Northeastern. CONGRATS!! I can't begin to tell you how nice it was to see an old friend after a year and a half.
So our little one is now 6 months old. She weighs 16 lbs 13 ounces and is 26 inches long! WOOT! According to her pediatrician, she's now in the 50th and 60th %-iles for height and weight. She's finally "average" size. No longer do I call her jumbo baby. Now's she's average sized baby... Needless to say that it doesn't roll off the tongue as nice.
She caught her first cold this weekend. I'll spare the details but its just nasal congestion. Pheew.
Also, big news, I have stopped nursing her. With work and my allergies, she was completely weened off as of last Thursday. Sad day for me but, it makes feedings much easier in that I don't have to find a dark corner at the mall to feed her now. I can feed her anywhere! Anytime! Yey!
Last bit of fun news, I'm finally back to my pre-pregnancy weight... however that doesn't mean that I am back to my pre-pregnancy body. ha ha. Ahhh, the wonderful joys of motherhood.
All-righty-- just in case you haven't heard, Joe and I bought our VERY first house-- woo hoo!! So the past two weeks have been dedicated to moving. A GREAT BIG SHOUT-OUT to Mimi, Pop, Den, Bart, April, and the kids who came last weekend for the (final, never to leave ever) move!! We closed on the house last Friday, celebrated my mother's 60th birthday on Saturday and moved on Sunday. Life has been hectic.
Our new house is only 3 miles away from where our townhouse was so we're pretty familiar with the neighborhood. I'll have to take some pictures of the house and post them up!!
ALSO-- I started my part-time educator at Walt Disney World. I had my orientation two weeks ago and just had my first week of work this past week. You can find me at the Seas at Epcot teaching guests and their kids about the importance of animal conservation. It's like a teaching job but if you mess up, no need to stress because you'll probably never see these people again. Awesome.
Violet and Finn were hanging out at Mimi and Pop's when they ran out of things to do...
Finn hoped that tasting Violet's hair would help pass the time... But then, Violet came up with an idea.
"Hey Finn, you wanna see my impersonation of Jabba the Hutt?"
"Wait for it... Wait for it... Here I go!"
"Han, Han, make-cheesay. Pa'sa tah ono caulky malia. Ee youngee d'emperolo teesaw. Twa spastika awahl no. Yanee dah poo noo." (Translates to: Han, Han, I can't make exceptions. What if everyone who smuggled for me dropped their cargo at the first sign of an Imperial Starship. It's not good business.)
