June 12th/13th -Away we go!

Utah. Okay well we didn't get there right away. We left Saturday mid morning after some last minute packing. We made it down to vancouver, got gas, and 'gatorade' for Papa (mt dew), and went through the carwash. Yes with the new rental car. No I don't care that it was pretty clean already. It's a silly tradition that George and I have to go through a carwash to start any road trip. So, carwash, then down to the PDX airport to the rental car office to get George and myself signed on as drivers. I think we actually made it out of Portland around 12:30. There were many stops along the way, about every hour and a half or so, to get Norah out of the car and run around. We made it to Ontario, WA that night and stayed at a nice hotel. We had a nice complementary breakfast Sunday morning and made better time getting started. Norah was such a good girl for all the driving. She napped a lot and played with toys, very little fussing overall. We made it to Aunt Diane's house late afternoon on the 13th and spent the evening visiting.

June 11th -Graduation and First Steps!

On June 11th 2010 George walked in his graduation ceremony for his Masters in Science (in Electrical Engineering). WOOOOHOOOOOOOO!!!!!! Norah and I, along with his parents and my parents were there to witness. It was so awesome to finally be at graduation! George also received the award for Outstanding Masters Student. He received this award as an undergrad too!

To make this day even better, Norah decided to take her first steps right before the ceremony! We were all touring George's lab/office and she took three steps while everyone was watching :)

Mass updates coming soon

Yes it's been a looooong time since I updated. I have some major milestones to blog about, but I need pictures! We downloaded all the pictures off our camera on to George's laptop while we were in Utah since we filled the memory card. George was working crazy long hours this last week I didn't want to bug him to bring the laptop home. Soooo hopefully in the next day or two I will have pics to upload so I can start posting about all the awesome things we have been up to these last few weeks.
No pictures needed for this one: Norah is weaning herself. Sigh. It started Monday, day after we got back from Utah. She didn't want to nurse after nap and snack. I thought it was just a random thing, but she's done it all week. I'm having a hard time getting her to nurse for more than a few mintues everytime we try. So. I guess we're weaning. It's uncomfortable. My body is not liking it and not adjusting very quickly. And I'm a little worried about her getting enough calories since she's not supposed to start on dairy yet. Dang, now I'm going to have to start watching what I eat! No more calorie outlet other than good old exercise, bummer.
