We got the house!

What a week this has been! Alana has had a ear infection all week, but when we first went to the doctor on Monday he told us she just had a virus. So, we didn't get the antibiotics in her until Thursday, when we brought her back in and were told that she did indeed have a bad ear infection. I was a little irritated by this, considering Alana could have been feeling better by Wednesday, I wouldn't have had to take as much time off work, we could've saved one of the co-payments, etc. Especially since I had suspected that she had an infection in the first place and that's why I initially had brought her in on Monday! Doctors sometimes, really!
We got our house! We move in the second week of August! I'm so excited that we're going to be so close to my parents! And we'll have so much more space! Yay!!!
I still haven't heard back on that job, my boss thinks it's probably because I am not their first pick, but if they get turned down by the outsider, they want to still have me around to give the job to. So, essentially, I probably got "second place". Of course, they would never tell me that. So, more waiting....
Also, my mom has some good news, which I'm sure she'll be more than happy to tell everyone!
Here are some more pix of our new house...Yay!!

I think we found our house!

So, I think we might have found the house we have been looking for! It's in Lacey, about five minutes from my Mom's house! We are just waiting on the application to go through. There are many people who want this house though, so we are keeping our fingers crossed. It's not the most beautiful place in the world, but it's in our price range, and we love the location. It also has three bedrooms, so have room for our family to grow if we stay there for awhile. I like it. It has a pretty large fenced yard too. If we get this place, we will be moving in the middle of August, I hope it works out.
Alana's appointment for the pediatric neurologist is August 16th, so that means even more waiting. I try not to think about the situation too much, it can drive a person crazy.
Max's "middle" cousin, Adam, got married today in the tri-cities. Adam wanted Brent to be his best man, but since Brent will be in the hospital for quite awhile, Adam asked Brent's girlfriend Jen to stand in for him. She has been at Brent's side everyday since he's been hospitalized. I hope he marries her.
Well, I included a pic of the house from the road, (I can't get the other one's to pull up) and one of upside-down Alana, hope everyone had a good holiday!

She's so close to crawling!

Alana is so close to crawling. She gets up on all fours and then rocks, sometimes takes a couple steps, and then she'll just flop back down on her tummy, and army crawl where she wants to go. Periodically she'll get back up on all fours, and then go back down again. It's really cute. The closer she gets to crawling, though, the more I realize that I'm really not prepared for her to be mobile. She's into everything! What am I going to do when she can get there quicker?
Max and I are still house searching. It's just so hard to find something we want and actually get there to see it before anyone else scoops it up. Hopefully we'll find something soon.
We still haven't heard anything about the referral for Alana. I can't call the doctor's office to check up on it at work because I've been assigned to scanning. I would call on my break, but I usually sit on hold with them for at least a half and hour, and I only have fifteen minute breaks. I just interviewed for the second time for a position in the Marketing department. I had never heard about people interviewing twice for lower level positions before, but apparently it is a really competitive position because the opportunities to promote in the position are really great. I was the only person from State Farm selected to have the second interview, and she interviewed two other people from the outside with Marketing degrees along with me.... So, we'll see how it goes.
Nothing else really new going on, I'll keep you updated!
