Giant Baby (and Carrots)!

Chris had to work on Saturday to build a test fixture at work.  So we didn’t get to do much with the house. 

Our deck permit is SLOWLY making its way through the approval process.  They said 5 – 7 business days and it’s already been 10.  I just hope they get their act together and approve it by this weekend because we’re doing work whether we have the permit or not!

Here is the deck design.  There is nothing fancy about it – just a square 16 foot deck – but it will be a major improvement!  This was my first time using Sketch Up so there was a little learning curve!

On Sunday we went with some friends to a Beer and Wine festival.  It poured rain most of the day so it wasn’t as enjoyable as it could have been.  While we were there, Samantha got to spend some time with our friends Steve and Diane and their two boys.  I guess she was a little fussy – we hope she gets over this soon!

Our food basket this week contained chicken breasts, sliced beef, cheddar cheese, green beans, tomatoes, green pepper, onions, corn, Cubanelle peppers, plums, watermelon, bread, and milk.  The carrots we received were the biggest I have ever seen – they are as long as my forearm! 


Our meals have been so healthy and colorful since we started getting the food baskets.  Here are just a few of the great meals we've had.

One of my friends in the Stay-at-Home Mom’s group offered to re-take Samantha’s 6 month pictures.  We went over there one morning and had a good time taking a ton of pictures.  Fortunately Samantha smiled more than the first ones!

We also started music class this week.  The class has a lot of songs, music toys, and dancing.  She really seemed to love it – and was trying to “sing” throughout the class.

On Friday, Samantha had to go to her 6 month doctor’s appointment.  She did well with the shots and is meeting all her milestones.  She is VERY long (28 ¼”, over 98%), average weight (17 lb, 6 oz, 75%), and has a small head (41 cm, 25%).  Her height is off the charts – I think we need to hang up the basketball hoop soon! 

And of course her weekly photos:

Hopefully we’ll have some deck progress to report next week!
