7 months old!

diedre is doing great :) her first tooth has made another appearance, this time it is more noticeable, sharper and sticking out (it was just a tiny white dot a few weeks ago that went away until saturday).

she has the new habit of holding onto things and swinging her arms wildly. example: teething toys, blocks, what have you...the only problem is, she punched me in the cheek and the eye today. she has quite the strong punch!

i am trying to teach diedre to clap. here she is doing assisted clapping--the hard part is teaching her to keep her hands flat together when she claps, rather than to squeeze her fingers (clasping). the next step is for her to gain the motor skills to make the clapping contact herself.

just like daddy--mesmerized.

our new home

living room. needs new flooring. we'll probably put laminate down.

dining room

kitchen. it has a good amount of storage with a full pantry--i've always wanted a pantry :)

master bedroom. nice big closet, like we've become accustomed to. all the rooms have nice big windows.

diedre's room. it was purple when we last saw it, they painted it a nice baby yellow.


other room. large "bedroom" with sliding glass door that leads to the back yard.

south facing backyard. very private. it has tall cedar trees along the back and some bamboo over to the right and a big walnut tree on the left side.

back of the house & hot tub

the big move

moving day. diedre played very nicely among the boxes while the guys got things loaded on the truck.

sparky helps derek load the truck

diedre plays well on the porch

all packed into the car and ready to go

helpers--thanks guys!
