it's been a while! so much has happened! moving day finally came & went last week. it was crazy busy, & i'm just glad it's over with. all of our household goods are packed up & sitting in colorado waiting for us!

we did get into housing. john was at carmax unloading the focus while the packers were there, and he got a call from the housing office. the house is only three bedroom, and it's a 4plex instead of twin ... but it's a house, and basically pretty similar to what we were in in virginia. unfortunately it won't be ready until july 17th.

right now we're staying at my mom's in north carolina (the van is STILL being repaird at teh toyota in virginia - it should be ready any day now, so they say), and will heard out west next friday. from then until we get into housing we'll be staying in a hotel! yikes. 17 days in a hotel.

we actually moved the day of kayleigh's dance recital. we spent the night befor ein out house with no furniture! just an air matress and sleeping bags. :) it sucked.
the recital was so cute. kayleigh got a little shy for a bit, but with 15 people staring at you 5 feet away - who wouldn't?! lol
she said next year she wants to take gymnastics. we'll see how it goes with school, ect. but we'll probably sign her up if she still shows interest.

i'm going to miss having a yard! our new house in co only has a patio. that will be a big change for us.

norah turned 5 months old yesterday! it's getting harder to get these pics every month! she wants to eat the monkey, lol.

here's a link to all the months together -

5 months old!

oh yeah ...

norah's getting so big. she can sit up for a little bit here & there. i'm going to start taking my own advice and pushing her down, she can't grow up, yet!


most of you have already seen this .... but i'm posting it here for those that haven't! i am so proud - i actually followed a pattern for the first time in my life! maybe i can break in that ottobre issue i bought a ew months ago ... after the move, of course.

thank goodness may is over. i can't take any more of may. my husband will be home in 5 days! even though we'll be homeless and car-less in a week, it's a-o-k in my book. just as long as we're all together again. and i stop breaking things ... cars, bones, lol ... (no john, i didn't really just laugh out loud ;))....

the pattern for this top can be found for free HERE. i wish it included other sizes. maybe once we move i can try upsizing it a litle bit. not sure i'm in that league yet. :P it's really not crooked. just hanging funny on the hanger.

hmmm ... not sure i like posting pictures from flickr here ... any tips? norah looks all digital-ized. hopefully you can click for a clearer pic.
