George Strait

Well, we went last night, and it was a lot of fun. Eric, Bailey, Matt, Deanna, Chad and I had a good time catching up, watching the rodeo and of course watching George. This was Eric and my about 5th time to see him. He has such a great collection of songs that the concert is always good, however last night he played like 3 NEW songs that no one has heard in a row, TWICE. Not that I didn't like them, but I go to concerts to sing along! haha. Sorry to the people around me. That wasn't as fun, but we still had a great time, and Cara was amazing this morning. Slept till 7, nursed, fussed a little as I tried to have her play in my room. So I laid her back down and she slept till 9:45, thank GOD because mommy needed it!

PS, her first official word was Mama about 2 weeks ago!

8 months, I can't believe it!

Cara was 8 months old yesterday! I cannot believe how fast it went. We went yesterday and registered her for preschool starting in September at our church. It's Fridays only from 9-2:30, which will allow me to do some bookeeping, and get some rest if I'm pregnant, like we hope! She has really started being a big girl lately. In the past few weeks, her favorite things to do are say "babababa" and "mamamama" although Eric doesn't believe me that she's calling ME. She also is pulling up on stuff, and if I stand her up and put her on her table play thing, or in her crib, she'll hold on and play. Although, she doesn't like it when she falls. She still isn't crawling, which I think is frustrating her. She has all the motions, the getting up, the rocking, but then she usually ends up on her belly which she doesn't like as much! She also is starting to have a little separation anxiety I think from me, which makes me feel loved, but I'm sure it's not nice for the nursery folks at church, or others that come to visit and all she wants is me. She is the sweetest little girl though, very affectionate. She LOVES her daddy, and loves watching the puppies play. She was pretty good at TMEA once we got past the first night. She loves drinking water, and is eating like a big girl. To date she has had homemade: apples, bananas, pears, peaches, avocado, asparagus, green beans, sweet potatoes, carrots, yellow squash, I think that's it. I went to the store yesterday and got her kale, plums, kiwi and more bananas and avocados. So I'll have to make those soon. She is a great poser for pictures, which is good for me! She still only has the 2 teeth, which I finally zoomed in and got a picture of :) She loves when we walk outside, it's her favorite place to be, thank goodnes it has started warming up. She's a great car rider. We've been to Georgetown, Corpus Christi, San Antonio, Santa Fe (TX), etc without a hitch. She loves being read to. She's starting to wave, which is too cute. We have been teaching her baby signs, and although she can't sign back yet, she understands the few regarding food. If we show her time to eat, she gets excited. And when we say all done, adn she's still hungry, she LETS US KNOW! Well, she's in a falling down phase, I have to go. Love to all, check out the new pictures!

Off to TMEA & Happy Valentine's Day!

Eric, Cara and I are off to TMEA this week. Eric's really excited. I'm glad to get out of Houston for awhile, I just hope Cara sleeps well in the hotel. Cara and I are off to our playgroup's valentines exchange at 10, which should be cute! Then we're leaving for San Antonio around noon today. We look forward to seeing all our old BU friends. Cara and I have some plans to go see the Alamo and Children's Museum during the day while Eric is in conference. I'm going to try to hook up with my cousin Ben who's attending UTSA to take him for a good meal, I just need to get his phone #! :)

Be sure to check flickr often, I've uploaded a couple new and a couple old pictures.
