Tomorrow, I'm back to school FT. I can't believe the summer is officially over! We never made it out of Tallahassee this month, but we're talking about taking a day trip to Panama City Beach again to purchase some additional clothes for Vivian. She's now in 12-month clothes, which are fitting much better than the 9-month clothes because she's tall and CHUBBY in the thighs!
Vivian is doing so well. She's very actively crawling all over the place now and is starting to pull herself up on various objects -- me, Chris, and Chris's huge duffle bag that is stuffed with his Tae Kwon Do gear (hasn't seen any use since Feb of 2008 -- ugh).
We went to the pediatrician last week. She now weighs 20 lbs at 8 months. She's very healthy and doing great. Pears, bananas, carrots, sweet potatoes, and winter squash seem to be pretty yummy. Peas, however, take a lot of effort to get into her mouth. She really doesn't like them.
Today, we went for a walk around Lake Ella. Vivian liked seeing the baby ducks. We also went to the Tallahassee Museum this afternoon. It's basically like a mini zoo. There are a few types of animals - a bald eagle, a red fox, two otters, an alligator, etc. Vivian didn't seem too excited, but at least we got out of the house and we plan to go back again.
I hope this semester isn't too eventful! I'm taking 4 classes and have a research assistantship. I'm also taking the qualifying exam in October. We're considering attending the big AECT conference in Louisville, Kentucky in October, but that means we'll be in a hotel (somewhere between Kentucky and FL) for Vivian's 1st Halloween. BOOOO!!!
Only time will tell...
