Well, guess what! My computer has a virus and has completely shut down. So I don't really have any access to my blog much until we get it fixed. Does anyone know someone who could restore it for cheap? We looked at best buy and it's $200! That's not exactly in our budget right now, so if you know any one, it would be a great help! I can't wait until I have computer access again! Sometimes they are such a PAIN!!

Well, guess what! we adopted a cat! Her name is Clohie, but we are still deciding what we should name her. If you look to the right, these are then names we are deciding between.: Clohie, spooky, Scout, and Blacky. She is Black with white socks and a white stomach, with a little goatee. She is beautiful and is always out exploring her new home. We love her already, and Mia is getting used to sharing her parents attention with her.

Also, on Sunday, Mia started crawling. Se still not very good at it, but she is working on it, and loves to play on the floor with her toys. She never stops moving. :)

We hope everyone has a great first day at school! good luck!

An Exciting Summer

Wow! So much has gone on since I last updated my blog, good and bad, but let's start with the bad. Adam at the end of May lost his job, because of the economy, and was out of work for about 2 months. He just got a new job a few weeks ago, and has loved being back to work. ( good thing we had a savings!) Also, Trick or Treat, AKA Tricky, my parents cat died in June. She was about 16 years old, and had some thyroid problems, so I feel ok that she is not in pain anymore.

Now for th exciting news:!!! Mia can sit up, scoot forward and backwards on the floor all by herself, and just recently gets on her knees and rocks back and forth. I just know that she will be crawling any day now! She's going to be into everything soon. :) I think every mom gets excited for these new accomplishments of their children, but is also a little worried about what they will get into. I need to start baby proofing my house.

Also, this summer, Mia and I have taken swim lessons. It's been so much fun! she's learned to just lay on her back in the water, blow bubbles (or face plant), kick, jump into the pool, and even go under water. Most of the time she never even coughed coming out, which means that she didn't swallow any water. We did the lessons with a friend of ours Debra-Jo and her son Tyson, who just turned a year old. We can't wait to do it again next year, and maybe she'll remember all her great skills.

Now for on of the best news of all! Adam and I have been talking about adopting a cat, and last night he calls me up saying I should start looking. We found one that would be great for our family, and we are going to visit her tonight! Her name is Clohie. She is great at acrobatics and very adventurous, but can love to watch you or just sit and cuddle. She is a black cat with blue eyes and which socks, aka: paws. Hopefully we will get to take her home. I'll have to let you know when we find out. And post pictures soon.
