Random Thoughts on Thursday

-Y’all won’t believe it. WE HAVE INTERNET! Woohoo! They finally came and installed it yesterday afternoon after we called them at least twice a day for the last few days. Last night, I was able to talk to my Mom for 30 minutes through Skype and it worked great! Smile 

-I’ve been cooking quite a bit lately and using my crockpot like it’s going out of style. I’m determined to reach my goal of trying 100 new recipes. I’ve added a new page to keep track of the recipes I try. You can check it out here. Yesterday I made this Shredded Buffalo Chicken. Oh my gosh- it was SO good! If you like buffalo chicken you have to try this recipe.



-Our car is finally registered and ready to drive. I also got my driver’s license  here so I’m good to go. I am a bit nervous about driving it because it’s an SUV  and I’ve never had an SUV before. I’ve also gotten pretty used to zipping around in our little rental and being able to park in the tiniest spaces so it will be an adjustment. But I am so relieved because it’s a much safer car and that’s important with the crazy drivers here!

-I signed Emerson up for Kindermusik and we went to our first class on Monday. She was the youngest baby there but I still think she liked it. All of the songs/activities focus on a lot of parent/baby interaction so I think it will be really good for her.


-We ordered her a Jumperoo and it finally came a few days ago. She’s too short/light to reach the ground so we had to put a pillow under her feet. She hasn’t really figured out that she can jump yet but she seems to like it anyway. Here’s a little video. Please ignore my Mommy voice and my incessant use of the word boingy and focus on the cuteness of my baby girl.



-I think she’s going through a growth spurt because my little darling ,who has slept through the night since was about 6 weeks old, has been waking up every 2-3 hours to eat for the last few nights. I feel like I have a newborn all over again. I’m one tired Momma…

-Our poor, sweet Oscy had to have surgery yesterday to have a few tumors removed. They said they all just looked like fatty tumors so that is good news, but my Mom said our poor boy seems to be in a lot of pain. I wish I could kiss his sweet little beard right now.


-Today is my step-dad’s birthday. Happy Birthday Pa! We love you and miss you!


Happy Thursday everyone!

Good luck driving! Do they drive on the same side of the road as us or do you have to get used to that too??

How adorable!!! She is the cutest little thing!!! Ellie refuses to sit in her jumper, she just cruises alongside of it and plays with the toys from the outside. Heaven forbid she is contained to one spot for a minute :)

Gabriella said...
