My gosh it’s been a busy couple of weeks. Ready for the lowdown?
A week or so ago, Nick’s company went out of business, and everyone lost their jobs. Luckily, he found a new job very quickly, though he hasn’t started yet.
We refinanced our mortgage.
Avery turned 8 months old.
We had two out-of-town weekends in a row.
And as usual, I’m busy busy trying to keep up with work and baby at the same time.
Fortunately, it’s worked out well that Nick is home this week and he’s been a huge help in taking Avery so I can get some things done. Plus, he’s making his way down a little honey-do list I made for him. He’s the best!!
He….swept/sprayed out our dirty garage and took junk to the recycling center.
He set up a drip system (hallelujah!) in the back garden – just you wait. It’s stinkin’ awesome. He has ran errands, made me lunch, sprayed some weeds in the lawn, and he’s going to seal the new pergola tomorrow. And no, he’s not available for borrowing
Also in the last few days, Avery’s had a lot of “firsts”!
- First tooth on the 4th of July
-Second tooth this morning
-She’s crawling on one knee and one foot. She hasn’t quite figured out how to use both knees, but she’s making forward progress, so she’s happy.
-She waved for the first time yesterday, but we weren’t sure if it was a fluke or not. As of this morning, she’s definitely waving (or flapping?) with her entire adorable, chubby arm.
-She’s getting to be a sneaky little expert in pulling herself up. She tries and tries and fails and gets so frustrated, and then I turn away and next thing I know she’s standing up and pulling something off the ottoman, the couch or out of the dirty clothes hamper!
Crazy times! Sometime tonight maybe I’ll get out and take some pictures of the drip system….maybe
