We managed to keep Leila alive four months!

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

Yesterday Leila turned four months.

At this point, she’s:

  1. smiling, giggling, squealing and looking adorable in general.
  2. rolling around on the floor and holding herself up on her arms.
  3. attempting to eat rice cereal. Unfortunately, the food doesn’t get into her mouth fast enough.
  4. “talking” in her adorable baby speak
  5. sleeping in her crib. This is a big one. She was finally too big to stay in her bassinet, so last night we moved her into her room. Our bedroom is ours again! … well except for the diapers, picture books, onesies, coloring books and crayons and dollies.

I’m sure that Jeff will have some other things that I’ve forgotten. He’s pretty good at telling me things that I’ve forgotten to say or do. 😛

Jack loves the “new” typewriter that my parents had left at our house to be donated… unfortunately we won’t be able to donate it for a while.

She’s happy little thing when she’s got her eyes on her brother.


New car AT LAST!

Thursday, September 3rd, 2009

I just got my new Subaru Outback and I LOVE IT! What a great car! It’s not as convenient as the Mazda with its sliding doors and three rows, but its definitely a nicer car. I love having a hill-holder clutch again and I’m sure the heated seats will be delightful in the winter. Right now, I’m mostly grateful that I can drive again. At first I was going to get a Subaru Legacy, which is a sedan. Nice, but not the station wagon/ hatchback that I really wanted. Jeff spoke to Carl, who is the most wonderful salesman EVER, and after some sleuthing he found out that an Outback was due to come in a couple of days before the Outback. ACES!!! You are awesome Carl (and Jeff) and my new Outback is even more awesome. I love driving again. Yippee!
