"On the Phone with Daddy".....

"We will go where the best job is"....that is my new motto. So Shawn has been doing great in Texas looking for work.....and all his applying is starting to pay off.....He has had some good job interviews but nothing that has been the right fit......until now. So fingers crossed for Shawn he has had 2 interviews with a company in San Antonio and if all goes well tomorrow with his screening tests then he will be heading down to San Antonio on Friday for another round of interviews......I know San Antonio.....its 90 miles south of Austin and there are tons of cool towns between Austin and San Antonio to live with good schools.....and the housing is actually a little cheaper in some areas.....I am excited for Shawn and for us....so hopefully this job will pan out....and if for some reason it isn't the right fit.....its no big deal and there will be more offers.....So best of luck for Shawn tomorrow morning!!!

I just want you all to know I have been trying to post everyday but man the Internet has been crawling here....that is when it is working.....I tore apart the office yesterday switching out wires and cables and network boxes......crap I say .....nothing changed the speed of it....it is so sporadic....right now...great.....who knows what the next 5 minutes will bring...anyway....we will be calling someone tomorrow to get if fixed.....who knew how much I depended on the Internet....crazy I tell you! And I have so many recipes to post on the Breezy Cook....soon soon!

On with today........Today is Mikiah' s Favorite day....."Library Day"....She just loves going to Story Time.....and it is so interactive....she really thrives there...up in front, doing all the activities, totally attentive....she just really loves it....Kiara likes going too.....but she is more of the 'In the back of the room' kind of gal.....which is cool....she still does most of the activities with me right next to her....Lila also had a great time she was awake the whole time in the Ergo Baby Carrier (Ok I need to stop and again thank Molly for her recommendation to buy this baby carrier, I absolutely love it as does Lila!!!)...the girls had a good time, checked out a few books....and left the library with out a fuss.....which is amazing considering they both have been on a "No Listen to Mom" roller coaster lately.....I swear I am going insane trying to get them to listen and I am sure a little bit of that is because Daddy is away.....but today was a good day in that department.....The only thing that really drove me nutso today was Kiara's obsessiveness with washing her hands.....when I can't find her or she doesn't come when I call her name I can usually find her in the bathroom on the stool washing her hands in the sink.....its got me a little nervous but hopefully it is just a phase.......

One of the girls favorite times now a days (well besides going to the library) is talking to daddy on mommy's cell phone....I have been trying to get videos of it....but the kids like to walk around with the phone which makes it difficult (just like their daddy who paces on end when he is on the phone)....but today I caught MJ chatting away.....I just love it....You can hear Shawn talking.......the girls love the speaker version of my phone....silly girls....

Lila has been loving feeding time....So happy for that....I actually bought some bananas today and for some reason I am really excited to feed those to her next....of course mashed up and maybe mixed with a lil' breast milk.....here is a pic of her eating her fingers because her mom is too slow at getting her food ready.....and yes she is sitting on the table in her Bumbo chair....I love this chair and the tray too.....although it is sometimes called her blowout chair.....if you know what I mean!!!

I'M HUNGRY!
