5 1/2 Months

Common comments:
She is so alert! notices everything!
She has so much to say- very chatty! (don`t understand that one...) :)
She is so smiley (especially from the safety of mom's arms)!

Recent advances:
Sitting up unsupported (altho carefully watched for the ocassional loss of balance)
Eating a bit of cereal once a day, starting with a bit of banana, etc
Teeth appear to be coming very soon...

Other news:
Looks like we found a house - very near church and family, cheaper, a little simpler in style but a little bigger as well. pictures forthcoming...

Finding about one job/week to apply for - but haven`t received calls for any interviews, etc.

Our Pastor asked us to take charge of the weekly Thurs service - and I`m doing the teaching! (based on restoring the soul book) - very exciting but lots of prep work with the help of my husband - also exciting is all the healing he`s receiving as we work (altho it means the prep goes even slower/longer).

ok, Katya is trying to help me type, and is generally running out of patience with being here, so we´re off. Sorry posts are so irregular of late....the time has been flying...

Great to see and hear what's going on! Thanks for the update. She's gorgeous. I love her smile.

I like that you found a better living situation. And look at you, teaching in Spanish. You're so cool.

She is beautiful and adorable! You were on my heart a lot this weekend, and it was fun to come and get to see an update.

My little guy is pretty quiet, only cooing here and there or complaining when he's tired and hasn't yet dropped off to sleep. He is also good about grunting in his sleep or when he's eating. So maybe they'd be a good team of friends - Katya could do the talking and Jonathan could do the listening (with occasional grunting).

This is Inkling, but I'm going ahead and posting a link to our family blog for you to visit if you'd like. It uses real names and has more pics. (And if OTRGirl reads this, that's okay too. I'm just not planning to announce it to the world in a big way.)
