Well, I realize I haven't posted an update blog in a little bit. So here's what's going on in the Yenerich household:
*Callie is almost crawling. She is mobile and getting places, but has yet to master the hand/foot crawl. She is up on all fours and tends to go backwards currently. I imagine very soon she will get the forward motion. We are close (but haven't) to proclaiming her first word as "dada". She definitely calls Dave that when she sees him. I get more of a "nana" from her.
*Noah is singing all the time. I mean all the time. It's pretty cute. He's also bossy at times and whiny. Both are traits that we are working on. He really does a great job playing with Callie and helping me take care of her. Potty training...well, let's just say so far Noah has been a one-hit wonder.
*I hemmed my first pair of pants! You would think I would've learned this handy trait by now, but alas...no. My friend Abby came over one day and showed me how to use the sewing machine that we've literally had for 4 years that I've been afraid of. She made me thread it a few times so I would know what I was doing. She also taught me how to hem pants by hand. I feel so empowered!
*I'm getting pretty good at guitar hero even though Dave still kicks my butt. I say this because I've played against Helms and Miller (both guitarists) and won. I won't tell you that they were playing on the expert level and I was only playing on medium, because that would steal my glory.
*I've painted more trim. Our bathroom is now completely finished. I also painted the main bathroom and foyer's trim as well. Slow progress. Now, I'm anxious to do the pillars in the living room and the rest of the trim. I may need to do it when the kids aren't around for a length of time so that I can move furniture.
*Dave is on his new schedule at the AEC: 3 days of work, 4 days off. His first round will be this weekend when he works three days in a row. We'll see how this new schedule works out. It will be an adjustment from his old one.
*My house is a mess. Per usual. This time it's because of the painting and the fact that I am deep cleaning. There's also the ever present clutter of toys that permeates our existence.
*Perhaps the most important: God is really moving in my life right now. I've had some good conversations, and some really good prayer. Tony's latest sermon series is kicking my butt...in a good way. I'm definitely realizing my need for God and how I need to depend on Him. It's brought out some really good things and I feel that God is definitely shaping me right now.
