Now that she has teeth....

Another fun new activity!! Brushing our teeth!! This was after bath time this morning. She loves doing it herself.
It is so much fun to teach her new things! And the tiny tooth brush and tooth paste are too cute!

I finally captured a tooth on film!!! Chloe is so active these days it is a miracle any shots are in focus, or that she is even in frame. She has two teeth, top right and bottom right. I also see bottom left peeking out a tiny bit, so soon we will be able to say she has three teeth.Chloe found one of my old necklaces while we were packing up more things, and she loved it! I put it on her and she wore it all afternoon. Pretty funny. I think I will start looking for a baby safe necklace for her.

A bit blurry but shows the action!
I will keep trying to capture the elusive tooth photos, but in the mean time I am going to call it an early night. Holy cow this teething thing is really affecting my sleep.......Chloe wakes up all night long..... Last night I put her down at 8:30 and I lost count but I am pretty sure she woke up every hour between 11 and 3. Thank goodness she slept in until 8:30. I give her Tylenol before bed but it must wear off after a few hours. Poor thing. Baby teeth are WAY BIGGER and way sharper than I expected. The top one looks like an adult tooth in a baby's mouth. I just can't picture what she will look like with a mouth full of teeth. To me she is still a baby!

100th post!

Hey this is exciting, it is our 100th post! I apologize for the long delay in reaching this 100 from the 99th post, but we are busy busy busy.

We are trying to get our house ready to put on the market, and Andrew is a regular slave driver! Not a minute of rest between playing with Chloe (aka following behind her just trying to pick up the debris from her baby tornado) and cleaning/packing/fixing/painting/caulking/sanding/sealing/scrubbing/mowing/oh yes and sleeping a little too. I always wondered why people don't fix up their house while they are actually living there instead of right before they move. Now I know. It is a pain in the @**!

Aside from all of the exciting adventures in house repairs, we also have some pretty big milestones to celebrate! Chloe got her first tooth, quickly followed by her second. She got one on the bottom and one on the top. They are barely poking out, but already she looks older to me!

Chloe also started her new (non-ghetto) daycare, and we LOVE IT!!!! Chloe gets to play with other little kids, and get this---they actually take her to the potty. She has had only one wet diaper in the last two weeks! I am going to send her in undies next week and see how it goes. Why not shed that bulky diaper sooner rather than later?!

Anyway, I am supposed to be packing up the office, so I better get back to it. Andrew is currently sanding the front steps so I am feeling a little bad about blogging on the Internet when I should be working until my fingers bleed. :) (Oh Busted he just came upstairs!!!)

Here are some pics from a recent hike on flat top. :) At least we can look back and remember when we had fun (as long as it doesn't cut into our house prep time).

Near the bottom, on the beginning of our hike.
About halfway. You can see the steep terrain below.
To our stopping point. After this it is really more rock climbing, and we thought it would be a good idea to err on the side of caution with Chloe.

That was a bit of a rough climb for Andrew :) He volunteered to carry the baby backpack. It is pretty strenuous without an extra 25 pounds on your back! But we made it! Yay!

Okay, now I am seriously going back to work! Happy Saturday everyone.
