5 months and life lately...

Well, things have been busy!! I just realized I haven't posted in over two weeks. Sorry. About two weeks ago our entire house got sick. We all loaded up one Monday morning and went to the clinic's; $75 dollars later in co-pay's, all three of us were on antibiotics. Ryan and I are done with ours and feeling better. Annie has probably one day left and if she could talk she would tell us she's ready!!

This was her first time to be really sick and it wasn't fun. She never really got cranky but when you see her and she sounds terrible with gook coming out her eyes you just feel HELPLESS!!

Here she is starting to feel better but still snotty!

Annie turned 5 months old a couple of days ago (19th)and she is full of life. She has got lot's of personality. Watching her coo (talk) and trying to figure out what to do with her tongue is quite entertaining. She's starting to grab at things (toy and mommy's hair), sit up almost all by herself, and she tolerates being on her stomach more than a minute.

I consider everything she does major milestones. They make me happy and sad. Our little stink pot is growing so fast!

Annie at 5 months. (We played dress up with a BIG bow and a BIG tutu)

I have lots more to say but don't have the time right this second. I'll be back :)

Beaver Brook

Wow. Stumbled upon Beaver Brook and all I can say is, amazing! I think it is neat how this group of friends are working together to get back to nature.

Seriously. Amazing.

I am not the type of person that is always wishing for something they can't have. I'm happy with what have and the amount I have.

But while gazing at this site, it made me want to invest in building a little 300 sq. ft. cabin out in the middle of no where. No electricity. Just gas lanterns and bon fires.

Happy Tuesday to you all. I'm off to devise a plan and get Ryan on my band wagon.

A little "Hello" from our house to yours.

Things have been going great! I'm up to running 7 miles and next weekend will be 8. I'm starting to wonder if I am going to make the entire 13.1. We shall see. I have to remember, mind over matter.
