Jason’s cousin Annie had a beautiful baby today. Her name is Evie… or more formally Evelyn. She is absolutely beautiful! I got off work today around noon to close on the house, but first I took a quick pit-stop over to the hospital to give my Annie girl a high five and see Evie & Bryan too. You can’t forget about the dads! She had a planned c-section like I did, so no hugs, they hurt.
We were also supposed to close on our house [again]. What a bunch of who-whos! Closing got canceled at the last minute because their missing some piece of paper! Totally ridiculous. So… i took a half day of for nothing… although I did get to see Annie & Evie…. They’ve rescheduled for tomorrow at 5pm, so I don’t even have to get off work early,which is good,because its our staff retreat tomorrow so I wouldn’t be able to leave early anyways…. This is going to be officially the 3rd time we’ve gone to closing on our house. The first two times were for when we originally bought the house, and this last time is because we have re-financed the house to save a few hundred dollars each month, and pay off our bills and get on top again!
So. New life. A new baby, and a new financial beginning. –Kirra is doing amazing. I love coming home each day from work, and having her press her smooshed up face against the glass window to greet me, and then being so funny and hilarious in the evenings. She repeats virtually any thing you say…so our new phrase is “oh cool” or “oh awesome!”, and the best part is that she actually uses it in the right context!
She was a little pistol today however. When I got home she hadn’t napped yet, so she was pretty crabby and feisty. She just moaned and whined…so I told Jason, to straighten up the house,and i’ll take Kirra on a car ride… so… that’s what we did. I drove 54 miles and she took a nap the entire time! I also got to tour my county.
Food is still a battle sometimes. Jason has much better luck than I do. Usually for me, I think she gets so distracted that she wants to play with me, because she doesn’t see me all day, and sometimes all night, so when she DOES get to see me, she doesn’t want to waste the time eating. Our girl wants to PLAY! Tonight was an exception though. When we got back from our Tour de Nap I made Sesame Chicken Stir Fry and she gobbled it up and loved it and even called it nummy! YAY! The rest of the night we just played and looked at squirrels out the windows….
