I don't like goodbyes. In fact, I kind of hate them. This weekend, therefore, has not been fun (Not that saying goodbye has been the only thing to make it so). We're moving tomorrow, so yesterday a bunch of good friends came and helped us pack the truck and clean the apartment.

So now this is what we're living like. Mike and I are sleeping in the main room, to be by the AC, in a sleeping bag, which by the way, is ridiculously uncomfortable. Wymount apparently thinks padding between the cement and carpet is an unnecessary luxury. Alexa has been loving the lack of furniture because since there's nothing for her to get into, she can crawl pretty much anywhere she wants.

Thus ends a huge chapter in our lives. College, engagement, marriage, our first child; all have happened here in Provo. This apartment has been our home for 2 years, and we've made many good friends here. It's sad to go, but exciting to move on and enter "real life", or as a couple of friends say, become "real people".

Get Ready to Cry

Hopefully this will work, I'm just copying a link that a facebook friend put up. Warning: Have tissues ready!

Poor girl!

Look at this little angel.
This poor little girl gets blamed for so many things. Have you ever seen that commercial (I think it's for diapers) where it's the baby's 1st birthday and he gets a sock puppet? He then proceeds to tell his parents some major problems with their parenting- "Dad stop blaming me for the gas, so not cool" and "Mom, if my diapers sagged anymore I wouldn't be able to move" or something along those lines. It's a funny commercial, especially when you realize the truth of it.

Alexa gets blamed for:

Her father's gas (I know, right?)
Her father's mistakes when playing video games with friends online
Stains, oh the stains. Carpets, couches, clothing, although many of the stains really are from her.
Her mother's laziness in not getting showered and dressed before about 2pm most days
Making us miss things because she's grumpy or tired (very convenient)
Her mother's dumb moments (oh, sorry, the baby was up late last night...)
Her mother never doing more than wearing her hair in a ponytail anymore

And I'm sure there are more things the poor kid gets blamed for, but I'm sure the day will come all too soon when she can defend herself. ("Dad! That was NOT me!") She's already growing up waaaay too fast! She's crawling like a champ and pulls herself to standing on pretty much any available surface. She can even put herself in a sitting position from laying down. I'm pretty impressed with her.

And, thanks to those of you who took the survey for me. And don't worry, like I said, it's about usage, so you're not being judged on right or wrong, it was more just to see how many people used the standard and how many people used the technical. If you happen to want to know what the "correct" answers are anyways, let me know!
