We have been spending most of our days waiting for Ginny's job to start. We have been trying to keep busy. We try to get out of the apartment at least once a day so we don't go stir crazy. Today, I even hit the pavement to find a job for myself. I've already applied with several companies and have only heard from a few of them. Today was no exception; minimal success. I had one interview at Texas Roadhouse and I should hear something by next week.
I have been documenting our little girl through pictures. We are trying our hardest to keep up with her. She is very mobile and we are learning what baby proofing is. She is fascinated with the door stop on the front door. It's an older one; just one spring. She will sit in front of it for a good bit and just play with it until it comes off the wall; then she eats it.
She is climbing up on everything. We have our bed in our living room (we have two queen beds and a two bedroom apartment and virtually no living room furniture) and she climbs up on the side of the bed if we are on it and tries to get up on the bed. Hilarious! Here's a picture of her climbing on the entertainment center; she sees her reflection in the glass (actually the baby that is on the other side of the glass ;-)) and wants to get in there.
As I was folding clothes on the floor, she decided to come help me. I decided to put a reusable swim diaper on her.
We got this beanie/hat from a friend of Ginny's, Brianne, and it never really fit Kaylor very well. But now, it does.
And, apparently, she loves to read the newspaper in her new hat. (Yes, we are still in boxes. As mentioned earlier, we are only in this apartment for a few more weeks so we kept most of our stuff packed out of convenience.)
A friend of ours, Pauli, and her friend Breanne, came down for a week for a little vay-cay. We all went to our first Diamondback's game. The stadium is amazing---it's a dome!!! We carried little K in our harness.
This is what I came home to today. Apparently Ginny is trying out for extreme couponing or at least loves to bathe in them on the bed. HA. Just kidding. Ginny is very conscious of our finances and always tries to find the best deals. We definitely did today. Our new favorite store...Fresh and Easy!!!!
We are having fun, camping out! We definitely are ready for things to get rolling with this job so we can get some more normalcy back to our mundane lives. But, it's an adventure to find things to do. We found a $2 movie theater; we are so excited about it! It takes me back to when Auntie Bea and I use to get dropped off there with our homemade popped popcorn and see our show!
We definitely miss family but skype and texting correspondence helps! Auntie Bea comes in a few days=amazing!!
