Walkin’, talkin’, movin’, shoppin’

Life as we know it is changing and I couldn’t be more excited.

  • I graduate from nursing school in 8 days.
  • I’m moving home to live in a house with my husband and my darling daughter (and ONLY my husband and my darling daughter).
  • The house we are moving into is huge which means I get to drool and dream and shop and slowly build ourselves a home.
  • I start my first real job in June.
  • Avelyn had a successful myringotomy and tympanostomy tube surgery and can hear again.
  • Hearing means she might start talking too.
  • Last but certainly not least, she may not be talking yet but she is walking as of this week. As in walking, walking.

She gets so excited when she walks that she wants to run and leans so far forward she falls. Tonight Kevin said she is walking across the entire room. She wasn’t doing that when I left this morning. But she’s doing that tonight. My itty bitty, weighed 6 pounds 6 ounces at birth, almost 28 pounds at 12 months, big baby girl is walking. And she learned how to do it with me. Thank you God that I didn’t miss it.

[Jennifer's Alternate Reality: Today in JAR, Jennifer woke up to her adorably fat little baby stroking her face with her precious tiny fingers. They talked, giggled and sang sweet songs before they put one foot on the floor to start the day. When Jennifer and her adorably fat little baby finally rolled out of bed, they found themselves in their new house, their own house, with their own things and their own food and their own furniture. The TV wasn’t blaring at their house. The house wasn’t filled with stupid cats or whiny dogs. It was filled with quiet, peace and sunshine and there was no one to bother Jennifer’s beautiful morning with her beautiful baby. It was just… perfect.]
