Aww poor little toaster....

BSG is so good. I'm partway through season 2. And I hear it gets better! Gah!

Let's see. Hannah started solid food this week. So far we've learned that she hates rice cereal and thinks butternut squash is okay. It's so cute seeing her in the feeding seat though. She looks like such a big girl. We finally started videotaping her too. We got her first experience eating on tape and I got some of her on her tummy/sitting up too.

My preschoolers have their Halloween party tomorrow, and they are beyond excited. I, on the other hand, still need to get my Halloween costume together. Here's hoping everything goes off without a hitch.

Daylight Savings Time is on Sunday. I love the fall back one since it feels like you're getting up later than you really are. But I so hope this does not screw up Hannah's sleep schedule.

I'm starting this blog to share my life with family, friends, and anyone interested. It will most likely be very family-centered since that's just where my life is at right now.

Recent happenings:

-Dave and I are dedicating Hannah at church on November 8th. I'm trying not to focus so hard on who to invite and all the logistics, but more on what the promises really mean. We're about to stand in front of our church and promise to raise Hannah in the ways of the Lord. I feel like we need to talk more about what that means. I so want her to accept Jesus, and I want us to be a model for her faith.

-We are starting to look at houses to buy. First time home-buyers right here. It's exciting and a little scary! We're not working with a real estate agent yet. Just checking some listings online to get an idea of prices and what we like.

-Hannah is rolling over, trying to sit up by herself, "talking" much more, and sleeping in her crib for naps and bed time. She sleeps 10-12 hours per night.

-Now that Hannah is much easier, I've started getting really excited/anxious for our next baby. Then yesterday I took an antibiotic that made me extremely nauseous, and I remembered feeling that way every day for 11 straight weeks due to my pregnancy last year. That made me willing to wait a bit longer for Hannah's brother or sister. Yes of course it was worth it in the end, but it was still a miserable experience at the time!
