Jobs, Stairs, and Fun!

We have had a busy last couple of days! Starting last week, I had 2 interviews on Thursday. One I had scheduled with Build-a-Bear Workshop at the mall for Thursday evening. The other one was a phone interview. Nighttime Peds. called to do a phone interview. Both interviews went great. Nighttime Peds. set up another in person interview for Saturday afternoon. I then got a call Friday night already asking if I would like to accept a job at build-a-bear. I told them I would let them know over the weekend. Really I was waiting to see how the one for Nighttime Peds. went. Saturday came around and the interview went great and I was set up to do a job shadow for Monday for the shift that I would be working, which is 430pm to 1230am (but they end up staying there till about 2am when they are really busy). I did that shadow Monday night and it went awesome! Very fast paced and never a dull moment. Nighttime Peds. is an Urgent Care Clinic. The doctors see peds and adult patients too. I am looking at doing the front desk, receptionist stuff. I got a last call back yesterday and set up my final interview for today at 430pm. I am assuming today I will find out if I have the job, which I am pretty confident about.

Then last Friday, one of my best friends in Gulfport, who is from Hershey, PA, called and asked if we wanted to meet her up in Hershey at Chocolate world! It just so happened that Keegan had the day off of school so of course I took her up on the offer! So we drove the hour and half or so up there, had a great time at Chocolate World in Hershey, then Keegan, Sophia and I went to walk around the outlets up there and drove home! Which was HORRIBLE!! With my GPS gone, I had to map quest directions and just figured I would follow them backwards on the way home, BAD IDEA!! We left Hershey at 430 and didn't get home until 7:45 because I got lost! Sophia and Keegan were both crying the car, I was crying! It was the worst!

And the last thing adventure we have had was Sophia falling down the stairs yesterday! I don't know how she got around the gate, but she did and down she went. I just heard thump, thump, thump, a crash and then her start crying!! I as freaking out!!! She has a bump on the back of her head and a little scratch that was bleeding but other than that she is good!

That has been our excitment the last week or so.

My mom and grandma are coming to visit Monday for a week so that will be a lot of fun! Plus Halloween is next week and Keegan has a field trip to the pumpkin patch. I am kind of bummed because I can't go along, but I know he will have a GREAT time.

Oct 15. Pregnancy and Infant Loss Day

Today was Pregnancy and Infant Loss Day. A day for families to remember their angels up in heaven.

For those of you who don't know, we lost a little one August 2, 2007. My due date was April 1, 2008. I was 6 weeks pregnant when Chad had to rush me to the ER and we were told there was no fetal pole and that I had lost the pregnancy.

Here we are 2 1/2 years later with our little Sophia. Who knows where we would or how our life would be different if I wouldn't have miscarried, but God does everything for a reason. I just find it ironic that Sophia was born April 1, 2009, on the due date of our angel baby.

I lit a candle tonight at 7pm in for our angel along with other families across the world to set off a wave of light up to heaven.

Our weekend

This weekend started out GREAT! We headed to fall fest at Kinderfarm Park. We had a ton of fun! Keegan got his face painted, we watched a dog frisbee contest, Keegan did some crafts and played some games. Even though the weather was off and on raining we had a good time! Fast forward to Sunday morning, we are ready for church and go out the car and Chad asked what the heck I did! I said nothing and looked in the car. The glove box was open, as was the middle console and sun glass holder! My car was broken into. The one time we forget to lock it!! Chad normally messes with me and keeps hitting the button trying to get me to hurry up! All they got was my gps, BUT the gps out here is our life! We don't know where anything is without it!!! I called and filed a police report and a claim through out insurance. I am supposed to get a call no later then today from the claims guy through our insurance, but this really sucks. It just gets me thinking, God will never give you more than you can handle, but are you serious God??? We are broke as it is, now this is one more thing to add on top of it!

We will be getting our new GPS as soon we get the check from our insurance! And hopefully I will be getting the job at buildabear that I interview for on Wednesday! It is just so hard to know because the only time we go home is the week of Christmas and that is when most retailers want people to work! I will be able to work Black Friday and all that so maybe that will make up for it! I hope, please send your prayers this way that I get this job!! I really need a job to help us out so we can have some extra money for Christmas and to be able to do fun things so we aren't so broke all the time!

oh yeah and check on the posts below with updated pictures of Sophie and videos of both the kiddos.

6 Months!!!

Our little baby girl is 6 months today! It is so hard to believe it has been 6 months already. She has been doing so much for the past month or so that it is unbelievable. She has been crawling around the house getting into tons and tons of trouble. She started pulling up on to her knees. So much that I had to lower the crib down because I found her peering over the top! She has started veggies, green beans, carrots and squash and in the last 2 days she has started bananas. She LOVES to eat and hollers at you when you don't feed her fast enough.

She went this morning to her 6 month well-baby appointment. She is 15lbs 12oz, 26 inches long and her head circumference is 17 inches. Her doctor is happy with what she is doing gross motor wise, but we have to keep an eye on her babbling and laughing. We know she can laugh we have heard her do it, but she isn't like most babies who will just laugh at anything. We joke and say that she just doesn't find us or anything we do too funny. She also isn't babbling to us at all. She just does this high pitch screaming talking thing. It is hard to explain. Next time she does it I will have to get a video. The doctor said that if by her next well baby appointment at 9 months she isn't really babbling at all we will do some tests. She is hearing fine and turns when we call her name and startles at loud noises so I think because she is so ahead on her gross motor skills that she might just be a little behind on cognitive skills and with her being tongue tied until 3 months that might have something to do with it. But other than that she is doing GREAT and got 4 shots! She has been asleep since about 6pm so I am hoping we have a good night tonight and I wouldn't be up with her around midnight!

In the next couple of days I will post some of the pictures that I haven't posted yet. Her eating veggies for the first time, pulling up to her knees and just some other random cute pictures!
