Well A LOT has happened since my last post! We have finally made the move to West Lafayette from Indianapolis and are almost done unpacking. So far everyone has been very nice and Mae and I are really enjoying Eric being so close to home, his commute went from 1 1/2 hours one way down to 5 minutes, we even get to see him for lunch! Needless to say we are all very happy he works so close to home now. Louie is enjoying more space and is hoping for a fenced in yard when it warms up in the spring, but for now he will just have to settle staring at the cats and squirrels from the patio door.
Eric will be starting his MBA program in a few weeks so that means less time at home on the weekends, but we can push through knowing we will all be better off when he is finished!
Mae turned 9 months on Christmas day and is doing great! At her nine month check-up she weighed 17.05 ilbs (25th percentile) and was 28 1/4 inches tall (75th percentile). The doctor continues to praise her and says we are doing a great job. The biggest news is that she has become more mobile over the past few weeks and we can hardly keep up with her! She went from just making it around by army crawling to quickly crawling around the house and LOVES to stand, she has even began to "cruise" the furniture and her toys and insiders say she is going to be an early walker. It is so very hard to believe that she will be one in less than three months because I still feel like we just left the hospital with her as a tiny baby, I well up with tears even thinking about it! But we are so very proud of her as she continues to thrive and be a happy baby!
I am going to be taking some time off to spend with Mae while Eric is working and going to school, but you never know what can fall into your lap.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and that 2010 brings happiness!
