I've gotten behind on my blogs. The last few months have been crazy for us, and I've been too preoccupied to type up much. But today I'm attempting to fix that.
We're coming up quickly on Dakota's first birthday. Plans are all set for her birthday party a week from today. It's going to be simple: balloons, streamers, BBQ, and swimming. But it should be fun anyway. We're excited about it anyway. Trying to believe it's been a year...that's a whole different thing! I cannot believe that I've had an entire year with this precious girl already. She's grown so much and is quickly becoming a beautiful toddler. She isn't walking quite yet, but she's working on standing up on her own in the middle of the floor. She'll push away from you if she's standing on the bed and stand for a few seconds. We're thinking she'll be walking within the next month. Then the real fun will begin (and I'll really start losing weight!)!
We made a move this month from our apartment out to the country. We're currently living with my father-in-law. It's nice, we've got our own little portion of the house, and we're going to be building on a temporary room for Dakota. It'll be added on to the garage, so it shouldn't be difficult. All we do for now is have her sleep in the back office in the playpen. She's done well, she's stuck to her schedule and not been disturbed by the change. I just can't wait to get her back into her crib and more settled. Blaine's place is nice, we're all adjusting pretty well to living so close. All we do right now is share the bathroom and the kitchen. Otherwise we have our own space and pretty much keep to it.
