Sick of being sick!

We've all been sick this past week with the flu, the snotty nose, coughing kind. It hasn't been very much fun, and I had to take most of the week off of work. I'm realizing once again how much everything changes once you're a parent. It's so much easier being sick when you don't have anyone else to take care of! Especially when they are sick to and want you to hold them all the time, and are cranky themselves. I used to just sleep my sickness away. Now I get less sleep then normal because she's miserable too. At least my sweet husband let me sleep in today, and I'm starting to feel better. Now that Alana has conquered walking she's really starting to be vocal. I'm not sure if it's because she's sick and is being demanding, or if it's because she's switching her energy to her vocal skills now. If though she's been moody, and I haven't felt well, it has really been nice being able to spend so much time with her this week, I really miss her sometimes during the work week.
Here are some more pictures:
Alana feeding herself spagetti....kind of.
Alli and Alana playing a game with Alli's sweat-shirt strings -Hmmm, I wonder where Alana gets her hair from?
My first real blackmail picture. Although, she did get her revenge, you'll never guess what she did all over the floor not seconds after I took this picture!

Playing Catch up.

Okay, so I know it's been forever, but if you notice, I've been so busy lately I had to post at midnight to get one in! We finally got moved and settled in for the most part, after a series of mishaps that prolonged the experience much longer than I would have liked.. now we are finally able to just enjoy our house! We LOVE it! It's a little on the 70's side on the inside, but it fits our needs perfectly! I got a new job at work, I'm now the Ad service's assistant manager's secretary. Long title, and the job's just as busy, but I'm really liking it! I feel so grown up now. Alana is 9 1/2 months old, and she's walking...Yes, walking. No, I'm not ready for it, I don't know what I'm going to do when she can run! She's so busy, always has been, it's exhausting keeping up with her! The stinker decided to say her first word too. Not momma, no because I gave birth to her, and that would be too obvious. Dadda. That's what she says. You ask for her to say Momma, and she turns and points to Daddy and says Dadda. Like she's saying, "Well, I can't say that, but I know Dadda, Mommy." Hmmm..... I think I'm going to have to work a little harder with the next one. I know he's been slipping Dadda's to her for months behind my back. Well, I've been hearing some requests for more pictures, so if you scroll down, I put them in the following posts. Enjoy!!

After Aunt Alli put Sunblock on me, I went swimming for the first time at my Uncle Steve's lake! It was cold at first, but boy, I had fun!!!

What, was I not supposed to pee in Uncle Steve's sink? of me and Mommy, swimming's fun!

Here's one of me sleeping, one of me walking with my empty milk carton, and one of me ready for church!

It's fun waking Daddy up!

Is Daddy coming home soon?

Fun in the sink.
