Once again, it's been too long

A week and a half ago I said I wanted to post more pictures and some details of what happened at the beginning of the month, but that's a month ago now! My friend Jen got married and it was really nice and great to see my roomies from senior year and Cadie got to see her Nana and Dadder's house, but it was a long drive with her in the car by myself. That little girl is a trooper.

Also, the little monkey is pulling up. She started crawling just a few weeks ago and then a week ago I put her down on the floor, she braced herself on the pillow next to her and stood up. I thought it was a fluke, but then she did it at school and then a bunch this weekend. She is in almost constant motion, as demonstrated by these pictures.

Matt was saying at dinner tonight that he thinks we need to help her learn to chill out. She'll just crawl, crawl, crawl, play, play, play until she's exhausted. She is a high energy, happy, curious kid, and I think she doesn't really know how to stop. Every diaper change has turned into a wrestling match.

Dassa was here last weekend, which was great. She adores Cadie (obviously), and isn't Cadie so cute in that little outfit with a bow in her hair?

I wish we lived closer to family. I'm so tired so often. I'm always amazed watching Cadie go-go-go, but that's how I'm living now too. I have Friday off work and I'm really looking forward to it.

Too long since I posted last...

There's actually a lot of interesting stuff that has been happening around here lately - and I just don't have time to write about everything now, so here's a few highlights and I'll try to make a little bit of time tomorrow to add more.

Cadie is crawling! She started on the 8th, just before she turned 7 months old. Hm...I don't have a good crawling picture, but here's a picture of her asleep with her rear up in the air.

We enjoyed a lovely Easter. The family Easter photo didn't come out that well, but here's some of Cadie ready for dinner that night, styling her "My 1st Easter" bib.

With Cadence's new mobility, comes a renewed desire to investigate the gray furry thing that is our cat, Rainey. He, however, is not so excited about the little loud pink one getting near him. Since she's mobile, we decided to give Rainey his own room. We'd had his food and litter box in a closet off the kitchen dining area, but we have a bonus room over the garage we're not using, so Matt moved his stuff to the closet in there, so he has a nice big space to himself if we need to close him off, and she's not going to be tempted to get into his stuff.
