Small Steps to Big Milestones





Lots of busy things going on this weekend!

Hurricane Gustav was on it's way, scheduled to hit the LA coast on Monday. Some friends of ours that live down there were evacuated from their home. We offered our house as a place to stay while we waited out the storm, so they came up on Sunday with their dog.

Sunday evening we went out to eat at Cheeburger Cheeburger where we had the most ridiculous waiter ever! I think he only got one thing right about our entire dinner and that was Drew's drink! All the rest of us had something either wrong with our drink, or our food. We had a fun time anyway laughing at what he was going to bring us next. Good times.

We spent Sunday and Monday refreshing the hurricane tracker on the computer following the storm to see what was going to happen. Luckily it didn't turn out as bad as they expected. Our friends' house didn't get damaged and we recieved only some wind and mild rain (lots of it, but it was a light rain).

Taylor also is on her way to accomplishing some things! She started saying "dog" this weekend! Though it sounds more like "Dah" (not to be confused with Da as in Dada). She pats the dog and says "Dah. Dah." Of course now everything else new is called "Dah" also, haha. She still has Mama and Dada right though, and MAYBE Hi. She's also learning how to clap her hands. Yesterday she started getting up on her hands and knees and rocking back and forth trying to figure out how to crawl! I did get some pictures and video of that so here it is!

Also some pics from a while ago.

Taylor and Mommy:


We were comparing eyes, Taylor definitely has Drew's eyes so far!




Gotch'ya Mama!
That's about it! This week I'm busy getting some things sorted out for our trip. Lists of things to take. I can't believe it's just a little over a week away before we leave! Exciting!

All for now,
Jen
