We found a place to live and are moving in this coming Saturday! We are way excited as we have a washer and dryer, a yard, and it is in a good area by the U. More info about this next week! It has been fun living with the McKees and we could not be more grateful that we have family here. Thank you so much for everything!
Elanor is almost 8 months, will finally have a doctor's appointment next Tuesday (as insurance is all figured out now), and loves books. We read a book (or several) before every nap and before bedtime. Right now all the books are are the lower shelf of the changing table. When I read her a book she is not super interested in, she looks down over the arm of the chair, trying to look for the book she wants to read. She loves the "Spot" books,"When the Sun Rose", "Goodnight Moon", "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" and "Moo, Baa, La, La, La" to name her favorites. It is funny how she has preferences.
Elanor is almost crawling. She gets up on her hands and knees all the time, pushes herself forward, gets up in a bridge (on hands and toes), she moves her knees, but can't quite get her hands to coordinate with her knees. She tries so hard and sometimes gets very frustrated with herself. Elanor also absolutely loves playing the piano (she is really going to miss it when we move!).
We are excited to move in to our new place (we get to paint!). My mom, Jess and Erik are coming down to help us move in. We are going to have a busy week, painting, moving, and unpacking!
