...and there she goes....

Quick Update

Afternoon all! We are counting down the days till we get to pick up T-bird & Skyler.....13 to be exact! It seems like they have been gone forever! We are planning to make our trip to Memphis more than just the pick up. Zack and I have been researching something fun to do with the whole family while we are down there....perhaps in Nashville! It'll be our last little hoorah of summer cause school will start just 2 weeks after we get back! We found a fun water park or maybe the zoo......still deciding though!

Abby had a great week at Kids College (a day camp). She learned to make Alka-Seltzer bombs and how to blow a balloon up using science instead of just air...ask her for details! Livie is getting excited about preschool this fall. I have the luxury of being able to come home for lunch nearly everyday...which is confusing her. She always asks if I am home for good or not! :-) Mia is cruising around furniture and is able to walk assisted with a toy! ITS SO CUTE!!!!

My goal for the evening, besides finishing my homework, is to get a little video of Mia later for an update!

Mary Poppins a.k.a. Keisha

We hired a nanny!!! Her name is Keisha, she is 19 and fabulous. I love her because she has a PERSONALITY....we interviewed soo many chicks who were so boring!! I can't handle my kids being with....blah all day! She loves kids and already has great plans for fun things to do with ours. She started today and was...early!! Oh I was absolutely delighted! She is very open to what we want and need from her PLUS she did laundry and cleaned!!! WOWIE....this appears quite promising:-)

Mia is Mobile!

She has begun crawling!!! It's absolutely adorable!!! She gets wherever she decides to go.....which normally is anywhere with something she can pick up and stick in her mouth!!!! So, babyproofing cannot be procrastinated ANY LONGER!!!! She is already figuring out how to pull up and stand, holding on to her crib or whatever....she isn't a little baby anymore! :-( It went sooooooooooooo fast! I am sure she will be walking so very soon....
