Almost 2

Aunty Rissa Cuteness

Quick update: I have a "job". It's not what I wanted and it's butt far away but it's a job and it's enough to pay bills and get my 1-week-away-from-being-a-2-year-old-Tira here. Lanna is doing wonderful as always - unless you ask Aunty Rissa and Uncle Daniel. They think she's naughty, I think she's normal. We'll find out once MacTruck (their future son, and no they're not pregnant - yet) shows up. Tira and my parents are on stand-by to fly out on the 26th but if they don't get on that flight they'll come on the 3rd of April. I've put a deposit down on the apartment I wanted. It's big - 1100 sq ft - 2 bedrooms, 2 bath. I've decided to go with the "upstairs" (not really upstairs it's like 5 steps up) until which is right next to the playground. It's got washer and dryer hook ups so that means no lugging laundry to and from the laundromat!! I can't wait to move it and get all set up. Pictures will be posted once we get organized.

Anyways for now you get to see some cuteness that aunty rissa created - she really is amazing:

Nothing to Update

Well I'm working - kind of. It started out as a "project/temp" job that was supposed to be 1 to 2 weeks. But when I got there Boss-man (John) kept talking like it was a permanent position. He continues to talk like it a permanent position and has even met with the the recruiter to settle on a salary amount. However he's dragging his feet and wont make a for sure decision. I'm pretty frustrated because I've had a couple responses to my resume and have been waiting to find out what John wants to do before I reply to them. He told me he'd have an answer by Monday (as in yesterday) and now he's saying Thursday. Let's all hope and pray he has an answer for me and it's the one I want to hear.

Aside from that Lanna-licious is doing well. Today was a big milestone she ATE FROM A BOTTLE!!! ::snoopy dance:: Almost all of last week and yesterday I would come home to Aunty Rissa saying "she's a naughty baby, who wouldn't eat and wouldn't sleep, and was cranky." But today I came home to a happy aunty and a happy baby, who took a nice long nape and drank 3 oz out of the bottle! It must be that she misses me so much because when ever I'm home Aunty Rissa and Uncle Muscles say " why aren't you this happy/nice when we're watching you?"

I will admit she's gotten much more mischievous and naughty since we've gotten here. She's realized that she doesn't have to stay seated when we put her down and so now she "dives". Picture her sitting up then diving forward and either getting her foot stuck under her or laying on her tummy. Then she gets pissed off because she hates being on her tummy and still hasn't mastered rolling over. Today she dove right off the mattress that we have on the floor and now has a bump under her eye. Then later she went head first into one of her toys and has a lump on her forehead. Poor thing.

Here's some sprinkles:
