We're still here!

Happy 4th of July Everyone!!!

Yeah, its been awhile since I've updated. Sorry about that. Life has gotten in the way of my blogging.

In the past 3 months:

~I finished Spring Semester with one B (in A&P2) and the rest are As. I was pretty pumped about it.

~I applied to the Nursing Program for Fall 2010.

~I received a letter of denial into the Nursing Program for Fall 2010 because I need microbiology(which isn't even a prereq). Can you believe that ONE class made that much of a difference in my overall score?? If I had taken Micro already, my score would have been over 1,000 points higher. So...I will be trying again next year! I'm trying to keep my chin up, although rejection is hard to take. I don't think I have ever been rejected for anything academic...I usually excel in things, so this was a jab to my pride. But pride goes before fall, so I'm just getting over it and I'm not giving up.

~Sophie celebrated her 2nd birthday on June 6th.

~Sophie has started talking and mimicking like crazy...and her favorite word is "NO". But she's very polite and says "please" and "thank you" without prompting now (most of the time)!

~Our little redhead Alaina has hit a few milestones. She's rolling and sitting up and ALMOST crawling. She's "scooting". She is quite chatty too and says "Mama" quite a bit and just babbles. Michael calls her our little monster. She is honestly one of the happiest babies I have ever been around. She is now 7 months old and almost 16 lbs and 27 in long (I am guessing bc at her 6 mon check up she was 15lbs 5 oz and 26 1/2 inches long).

~Alaina is eating solids now. food. I'm still not quite willing to put pureed peas and carrots into the "solid foods" category.

~We have been working hard and saving hard to go on vacation, which we are leaving for next Saturday, the 10th. We will be gone for a full week and are SO excited!

~I have started being crafty! Yes, thats right- ME- Crafty?!?! Who'd a thunk it? I am making and selling Baby wipes cases, Tutus for little babies and toddlers, Boutique Korker Bows, and Pillowcase dresses. To view my stuff, you can go to:
Email me if you'd like to order something!

~I have become even MORE addicted to facebook than I previously was and have a wonderful obsession with Ebay.

~I have started cleaning a house once a week for some extra money. Cleaning isn't my favorite thing to do, but hardcore cleaning someone else's house for 4-5 hours is quite a work out!!

~We recently got a new Charcoal Grill, and Michael is enjoying learning how to grill and is doing quite a good job. Our meals have been quite tasty lately.

So I think I hit all the highlights....There's not much going on around here, but we find ourselves quite busy with our 2 little girlies. I am so very thankful for 2 healthy and happy little girls.
