This weekend Matthew, Leslie and I went and toured the apartments in our ward. I don't know why it's taken us so long to get over there. I think we were holding out for a house or something. But, it is official. We waited and fasted yesterday, and today, we've called and gave them the go ahead to process our info. So unless they find some random reason to not accept our application we've finally got a place to call home at the end of this month! Hooray!
The layout is pretty nice and it has all upgraded appliances including a washer and dryer! So that is great. We will still have to down-size our amount of furniture and stuff, but at least we're staying in the area we love! So far the only things we're having a really hard time figuring out what do with, are our extra fridge and our work bench for the garage. Who would want to store those for an entire year for us? That's a long time.
But on a Toddler note: Leslie is getting bigger and funnier everyday! It boggles my mind how fast she actually grows. It could just be that she has a huge belly, but I can already put her in 2T size clothes and she's not even 18 months until next Tuesday!
We are constantly trying to teach her new and funny ways to be entertaining. Right now, she can flap her arms and "bock" like a chicken, she can bark, she says "see you later" (well at least some form of those words) when someone leaves the house, and we've started teaching her to shake hands and say "nice to meet you". She also says "thank you" for everything. When you hand her something she says "thank you", as is appropriate, but she also says it when you say thank you to her, instead of saying "your welcome". She'll say it back and forth about twelve times before she's satisfied that you are welcome and she is appreciative. It's great. She's also learned "ew", "ow", and "who-ray" (that's how she says it: with a pause between the syllables). She sings along with Diego still and is always repeating what she hears! So be careful when you're around, she's a smart little cookie!
That's all for now, but I know there will be more to come! Our world and hers are constantly changing. Plus, nursery is coming in a few weeks! Woohoo!
