Arabella has a bit of a cold. She has a runny nose, etc. I am not sure if it is because the eye teeth are coming in, or because everyone I know has a cold right now. She is not a very happy person....and when that happens, she wants her Mom! Lately I am the only one that she wants! I do not mind it, because I love her being a momma's girl, but I wish that it wouldn't hurt Dave's feelings though. He is not "sad" or "upset", but you can tell that when I leave and she is crying her eyes out it hurts his feelings just a bit!
We have not completely moved in. All of our stuff is "there", all the rooms are painted...but we are still at my inlaws. I am not happy about it...but there is still some work that needs to be done. We are supposed to stay there tonight....but I have to talk Dave into it. Everything is almost done, just a second coat of paint here and there...but I am ready to NOT be here.
The stove is there, the stove is built in, the microwave is built in...andddddd the sink, the dishwasher...is there...and I have the fridge coming in FRIDAY! We decided on the French door fridge with the freezer on the bottom!!!!!!!!!!!
Here is a picture to hold you over:

We have decided to fix the floors instead of carpeting the entire living room. Found out that the current existing room has BellaWood, a very expensive wood floor, well, at least that type, and only having to buy one box of wood works out...for me!
All I need to paint is the TRIM everywhere....everywhere. And also I have to paint the downstairs bathroom, but who is really keeping track! LOL!
Kitchen should be completed tomorrow...1st contractor is actually doing it, not his sub. Then 2nd contractor will be doing the windows.
Bella News: She is a MOMMA'S GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) :) This is great, and fun and amazing. She loves daycare. She loves other kids...she loves play-doh. She says: Up, down, tickle tickle, baby, dog, the letter C (as in ABC's), uh-oh, kitty, teeth (because she loves brushing her teeth), and a whole slew of words that are just jumbled...but they are starting to make more and more sense.... I love that she is getting so big, but I hate that she is getting so big at the same time...
