Lots has happened in the three weeks I haven't had internet! We are all moved in to the new house. We still have a little bit of work to do, but most of the stuff is unpacked. We've been enjoying the wonderful backyard during the day. Adelae loves to run outside. We adopted a little kitten (Zoey) and her and Adelae have become the best of friends.
Ben is still working two jobs and killing himself. He seems to like it though. Hopefully before too long he'll be able to work the occasional day at his second job. I have decided to substitute teach this coming school year. I need to get my fingerprints done and apply for a sub license. I'm hoping to take some of the financial burden off Ben in the upcoming year.
I recently celebrated my 30th birthday. It was a hard day for me. Luckily I was surrounded by wonderful friends and family. Mom came and spent the day with Adelae and I. Lot of my family came over for a small cook out and celebration. Brandon even showed up, until he had to leave for work. No worries though...I talked him into skipping out on work early and coming back! :D We lit our first fire, made s'mores and drank beer. It was a fantasic birthday! I wouldn't have wanted to spend it any other way.
Adelae is still growing like a weed. Her vocabulary is really expanding. She has learned that the 'bebe' in all the pictures is actually "Alala" and constantly points to herself and says her name. She also knows just how to work her daddy. I think we're in trouble! ;-D We bought her a potty chair the other day. In true Adelae fashion, she is refusing to use it. She'll sit on it, say "pssssss" and then say "done." All with a big grin on her face of course! I didn't expect potty training to happen over night, so I'm not too concerned. We thought we'd get one so we'd have it. Her imagination has also really grown in the last few weeks. She will play by herself and just talk away. Her growth still amazes me!
I have lots of pictures to post, I just need to get them off the camera and onto the computer.
