I can't believe this is happening to me, I knew it would, it's inevitable, I just assumed it would be later in life, but here it is, happening now. At 6 1/2 months, baby H., the one that I thought would be BEHIND in the game, is CRAWLING!!!!!!!!!
I forgot how quick those little rugrats can get once they start to be mobile. Todd and I had gotten lazy, and have neglected to utilize our shelf-space. How quickly we are learning to put the phone books, computer wires and various broken- objects- in- the -midst- of- repair up up and away from baby H.'s reach.
The vacuum cleaner is also constantly in use. I once placed H. on the floor in the dining room and during the millisecond that I turned around, he had managed to find the one tiny piece of pretzel that had fallen on the floor (leftover from Todd's poker party no doubt) and had it dangling just outside his gaping mouth. Supermama's bionic arm quickly snatched that from his grasp. I can't complain, though, I'm getting exercize!
In other news, Todd and I have decided to put our house up for sale. We're searching for houses in the Eastown or Mulick Park area or somewhere else if it's cool and close to neat things. ...and safe, of course.
With our current life's schedule, we have discovered that we need a smaller house, smaller yard, smaller heating bills and a smaller mortgage! So here we go again, on the oh, so enlightening journey that is the buying and selling of houses. Wish us luck, we'll need it!
