Remember When...

1. Add a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together.  It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember.
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you.  It's actually pretty funny to see the responses.

time for some serious updating

sorry, it's been a while.  not much is going on around here, just being mommy and lily, with daddy occasionally making an appearance!  i haven't written about lily's happenings for quite some time.  here you go:
2 teeth, both on the bottom, they came in mid october.
she's crawling around everywhere, and not just an army crawl.  she started really crawling on halloween night.
she's cruising up a storm.  she can climb up to stand at the ottoman, then makes laps around and around...i think she's going to be walking by christmas.  oh dear, that's a scary thought!
we're down to one nap a day.  i'm finally getting used to it.  thankfully she's been taking about a 2 hour nap when she does, so that's ok.  i still would rather two hour and a half naps, but what can you do!
we're finally starting to fit into 6-9 month clothes!  well, they're still big around the waist, but she's so long!  that's why we spend most days in onesies.  it's just easier!
her newest trick is doing the actions to the "popcorn" song!  it's adorable!  she really only does the popcorn motion, but every once in a while will wag her little finger for "it wasn't really so..."!
she waves hello and goodbye
she loves, and i mean loves to talk on the phone (uh oh!)
she's starting to call buz "dada" and i'm jealous!
again, sorry it's taken so long, but like i nap a day doesn't give me a lot of time.  maybe that's why my house is a disaster!  yes, i think that's it!
these days all she'll eat for breakfast is blueberry waffles
i had the ottoman open to put the blankets away and she found daddy's drumsticks!

Oh The Sweet Bliss of Employment

That's right, Buz got a job!  Some of you knew the offer was on the table, but it's official!  On Friday afternoon we gave the office a call and accepted their offer.  He'll be working at a public accounting firm in downtown Salt Lake called CBIZ.  It starts September 1, 2009, and Buz graduates at the end of April, so we have a few free months.  We're not sure what we're going to do, but since I fly free we might take advantage.  Any suggestions as to where we should go?
I just want to say how proud I am of Buz for his hard work and time he spends at school.  It's been like more than a full time job so far this semester, but I know it is already paying off.  He is so studious, more than I can say I ever was!  Thanks for all you do for our family Buz!
Also, thanks for all of your prayers and support through this busy and stressful recruitment season.  In the end we feel this is the right place for us to be and we couldn't be happier.
p.s. sorry to those of you hoping we'd move out of state.  it just wasn't in the cards for us.  but you can still visit us here!

Lily was a ladybug this Halloween.  A great find at the Target after holiday sale last year (still pregnant), I think I paid a whole $3!!!  This is my 10 minute home made spider web costume.  You like?
Halloween morning we went to my mom's elementary school so that Lily could parade with all the kids.  I think Grandma had just as much fun as Lily!
We bought Guitar Hero World Tour for our Wii, so that's what we've been doing in our spare time.  Lily thinks it really fun!
I just had to post a picture of this adorable pea coat I found for Lily.  I love it!
