Talking, talking

They both have attitude and talk at me now. Skunk has gone from no words to talking in about 2 weeks. Mama, Da, Hannah, NO, more, ice. There are more but I can't remember them right now. She is a little less frustrated but today and yesterday have been tough. The neighbors sprayed their yard yesterday and we have struggled... all three of us. We did go to park day yesterday and had a lovely time. Skunk climbed several ladders and went down a couple of the slides by herself with me at the bottom to encourage her. She also loves to swing but no surprise there.

Bear is getting big. She was feeling left out at the park as several of the girls had known each other for a long time. I pointed out someone else that was newer to the group and she and Bear played nicely. We stayed until it was time to get home and get showered.

We are still looking for dirt for our hopeful home. I just keep praying that someday God will provide the right place. We have looked at several larger lots and a couple of acreage places and none are right. Makes me want to settle for something less than right just to move. But thankfully Computer Man is more rationale than I am. =)

Rained today

We haven't had nearly enough rain this year. It should be raining every week as spring is our "rainy season" and we probably haven't had 1 inch of rain yet. We were supposed to have rain yesterday, last night and today. And, yep, it didn't rain until this afternoon and then rained for about 2 hours. Don't get me wrong - I am so thankful for what we got. But we are so far behind.

Skunk is getting even bigger and is starting to talk a bit. She does say mama and babbles quite a bit. She is saying something - we just don't know what it is. *grins* She gets very frustrated with not being able to make herself understood. Bear never really had that much trouble expressing herself. Ha ha!

Tomorrow is the play day/planning day for co-op. Bear is so excited. We are going out to breakfast - breakfast tacos in a restaurant. She has eaten tacos on the go but we have never gone in, sat down and eaten in a restaurant with her. She is so ready for breakfast out and play day. I am amazed at how well she is doing. Computer Man and I are planning to take her out to dinner to celebrate her birthday this year. I am totally amazed that she is doing well enough to go out to eat and hopefully enjoy it. We are planning to go to North by Northwest and have an early dinner so the place isn't packed with perfume-y peeps. My girl is growing up... *sniff*

I haven't talked much about knitting on here but I have fallen in love with a new colorway, at least for now. Camilla - created and dyed by Family Roots. I have picked up several skeins of it in dk and worsted superwash and some that is on light worsted plain wool. I can't wait to get it and get it washed to work on some tops for the girls. I will add a picture in when it arrives. I am going to make some sleeveless tops for the girls. I am finishing a Christmas gift for this year and then I need to figure out what will be my next main project. I love knitting!
