i begining to suck at blogging:
partly because it wont allow me to upload any more pictures because i have used up all of my allotted memory space and im too lazy to make another blog. but i figured i would update you all on whats been happening in our lives. first big thing: we FINALLY got an apartment! we moved in on december 22 and we are L-O-V-I-N-G it. Second big thing: Ken got a REALY job at a semi-conductor plant here in gresham. Third big thing: when we moved, we didnt have to change wards!! it was a beautiful thing. fourth big thing: marlie is in NURSERY!!! oh my gosh its so awesome! so things finally seem to be falling into place for us. ken has a really good schedule, he works every other wednesday and then every thurs, fri, and saturday and has the rest of the week off. the only down side is that he works 12 hour days. but he also gets overtime hours every day he works. so it kinda balances out. we had a great christmas. it was a little wierd having christmas with just us. but we really liked it. we just got pictures up on the walls last week so our apartment is really starting to feel like home now. we just need a dining room table and we will be set to go. marlie is REALLY talkative now. half the time i have no idea what the crap she is saying but these are her favorite words (in order of favoritism): #1: mama (not MY favorite. im thinking about changing my name) #2: baba #3bankie (blankie) #4:puppy #5: uppie (this means she wants you to pick her up.... im not sure where she learned uppie...) and #6: moomie (movie) on top of that she does a lot of jibber jabber. the doctor says that she is tall and lean for her age. she is still not sleeping through the night... no suprize there... but other than that shes a happy little girl. ken is liking his new job and he doesnt mind the long hours. i am still adjusting to being a stay at home mom. i am trying to find or put together a play group so i dont lose my sanity. ken will come home and ask me "did you go anywhere today?" i say "nnnnnnnnnnope" he asks "did you talk to anyone today?" i say " nnnnnnnnnnnope... just marlie..." so im starting to feel like im going backwards in terms of social-ness but im sure im not the only one. anyways, all is well here in oregon, its been SUPER rainy and SUPER windy and there are landslide and flood warnings all over the place but we are safe,warm, and dry and therefore we are happy.
