A little bit of everything

Where do i start? well, hurricane bill was a flop. we even prepared for it and everything! extra canned goods, extra water, flashlights, batteries. the whole kit and kaboodle and then nothing. oh well, i guess it's better to be prepared and then have nothing happen then the other way around. next on the list: i have a new found love of yard sales! growing up, my mother would go every weekend to all the yard sales around town looking for that deal and i just couldn't for the life of me understand why. as a grown up (a poor one) i can now appreciate finding that steal and maybe even maybe a bit of the haggle! a few of the awesome things we've picked up this summer:

-a good set of pots and pans
-an ironing board
-a wicker hamper
-a change table
-a lamp for the living room
-wooden hangers
-mixing bowls
-ikea kitchen chairs (these were actually found on the side of the road,! and after adam's mom reupholstered them they look great!)

Tomorrow is moving day and i think it's gonna be a long one. i can't wait until there are no more moving days. thank goodness for family that want to help out cause i don't think we'd be able to get it all done without them.

We were really excited to find out that Adam's term is going to start sept 1 instead of oct 1st! no more worrying and wondering about supply work for the first month! but that means he'll be busy as a bee from the first day we arrive in digby...i'm sure he'll do just fine!

Mya is getting closer and closer to crawling. Her brain is saying "move! move!" but her poor little arms and legs don't understand how to coordinate it all yet. i'm afraid she'll be walking before she's crawling. when the day comes that she knows how to get from point a to point b, i will be sooo busy! i have a feeling she'll be a busy one and i won't be able to keep my eyes off of her for very long. Things she's trying to learn at the moment:

-learning her name
-learning to crawl
-sitting up all by herself
-eating with a spoon
-learning how to sleep through the night again
-learning some basic baby sign language (more, milk, mom, dad)

we'll keep you posted on her progress! ok, time for bed as tomorrow is going to be a big day and i need my beauty sleep!
