It's 5 pm and 25 degrees here in the valley. Ask if I am happy?!
Heck yes.
Today we got up, opened all the windows and blinds, went to get groceries (in our t-shirts and capris) and then came home for a quick lunch. Then it was car washing time. It is nice to have a clean car. It makes me happy. For a treat we went to Pearle's for ice cream. Lyla sat on grass for the first time. She loved it. Then we came home and I sat and read a book on the deck while baby napped. As we speak, Josh is firing up the BBQ for sausages and corn on the cob. Oh man I am stoked. I don't think we could have asked for a better last weekend in April. Thanks Heavenly Father for allowing me to keep my sanity.

The countdown is on

Only like 6 weeks until we move back to the city. Yay. Only bummer is that many of our friends will be gone forever, back to Ameri-land. So sad. We will truly miss you. Except you, Jake R. Haha.

So today Lyla had her last neck physio appointment. She is all good to go. I was glad to get the ok, even though the last 3 times we went was more for fun than to really get anything checked out. I've become friends with our specialist and we have a playdate (her son is one) for next Wednesday. I wish she lived closer (she's about an hour away) so we could hang out more often.
I also started going to this thing called "The Community Kitchen" (which sounds so "food-stampy" but it's just this group the local Baptist church put on for Mom's that live around here. We go Thursday mornings, drop the kids off in the playroom and then they have all the supplies needed to make a supper for the family. So last week we brought home a casserole, and this week I think it's Chili and biscuits. AND it's free! So good times all around. I finally met some mum's around here with babies. I wish this would have gone on last fall, I wouldn't have had to be a loner this whole time.
So as some of you noticed, I posted pictures from easter and my bday on Facebook, it's so much quicker than loading on here. But here is one of my sister and I celebrating our b-days ( 2 weeks apart...oh, and 3 years!)
And here is a cute one of Lyla in her Easter sunday dress. I was waiting for Josh to edit them all, but he's been busy with school so I got tired of waiting.
As I was telling Sonja, I have one of the kiddies on Sunday for those who stuck around to get the picture done, but it didnt go so well. I'll send it to those involved when Josh gets around to it.
I guess that's all I got to say. I am just trying to get over this stinkin cold that has had me down for the last 4 days. It really kicked my butt this time around, but Lyla didn't catch too much of it, which I am grateful for. How about all of you? Did you get the spring bug? (No, not the good one that makes you want to clean, but the nasty cold one!)

My mobile baby

It's hard for me to find a second to post about my bday and easter weekend, mostly because Lyla is EVERYWHERE. (The picture above shows you how I feel) She crawls, she rolls, she sits, she stands, she walks along furniture and pushes the upside down laundry basket when she wants to get somewhere accross the room. Oh my.

I have a couple pictures to post of our most recent visit to the city, and promise to do so later. Hope you all had a nice long weekend.

A quick update

Things going on in our lives:

- we're moving to 150 Harlington on June 1st. Excited about being back in the city
- we bought a leather couch and loveseat. dark brown. will be deilvered the day we move in
- i go back to work first week of june.
- recently taught lyla to wave bye. now added to her repretoire of clapping her hands and saying yay, shaking her head no, saying dada, and holding out her fingers when we say "kiss your finger". she also crawls, sits from lying down, and walks along the furniture. oh, and she has 6 teeth, loves to feed herself. makes funny faces (as per picture below) and then laughs at herself.
- i just turned 25, had a nice bday party with Josh's school mates. way fun.
- lyla will be 9 months soon enough. where has the time gone?
- went to see the easter bunny here in greenwood. he was creepy, but lyla didn't cry!
- josh bought a new lense for the camera. don't know what it's called, but aparently it's good for portrait shots. i wouldn't know either way.
Ok, so when i started this list i was sure there was more going on. Maybe there is, but Lyla is being fussy, so i can't think. Whats going on in your lives?

Which one?

Which one do you like better?
Our crib is black, the room is pink.
Tell me what you think.
P.S The second one...the blocks are black...not brown like they look in the picture. Just so you know.
P.P.S They are both the same price.
