harry potter, bababa, and fireworks

Just wanted to pop in and say hi.
It's been a busy few days. Tisha has learned to say "bababa" and can now stand up in her crib and get from her tummy to a sit.. and also how to get from a sit to her tummy without falling on her face. My friend Jaime and I and our babies and her niece went to a huge fireworks display in the falls the other night.. it was really amazing! That was hands down the BEST fireworks display I've ever seen. It was the entire length of the strip.. like 1 km.. and they had to tape off half of the road because the fireworks were so big and so close! One firework would take up your entire feild of vision if you closed one eye! and they were going off all over the place! There were 4 or 5 times that everyone applauded and got up to leave because they thought it must have been the finale and it wasn't.. and the finale was INCREDIBLE!
Got the new harry potter book at 12:01am on the release date! it was kinda cool to have it stamped to prove that I was there waiting in line dressed up like a sillyhead waiting for I'm more than halfway through and really liking it so far.

Well it's been a while since I posted anything.. probably because it's been a while since I've gotten any sleep. Tisha finally slept through again last night after being addicted to mommy for a few weeks after being sick and getting a bit spoiled. She's been nursing all night every night for a couple weeks now so I decided to bite the bullet and let her cry it out. It only took 2 naps and she was going to sleep on her own again and she has slept 9 hours (so far) last night... and she's still in bed! YAY!

Let's see.. what's happenned in the past few weeks... July 7 Tisha started Creeping! That makes her the quickest of any of my kids to get mobile! (another reason I haven't had time to post.. she's keeping me very busy lately)
here's a video of the first day of her doing that

and here's a couple little shots of her modeling :) She got a new dress and diaper and shorties from our friend Nancy. Haven't got a picture of her in the shorties yet.. cuz she just won't sit still. But here's the other two pics.

It's hard to believe that she will be 7 months old in 3 days. It has gone so fast. I can't believe that I have to go back to work in a few months. I'm gonna miss her when I go back.. probably gonna miss all of the kids.. since I'll be on evenings probably for a month. Maybe they'll make my life even more complicated by putting me on days. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to go back in august or in october.. I should call them and check on that.. I know I left in october, but they took over a month before they started paying me... and I need to save 6 weeks of the time for Matt to take Paternity leave so he can watch them while I'm in training.. argh.. too much to worry about..
My birthday is next week... 29th.. I'm gonna be 30!!! I think it's pretty cool that I'm pretty much where I wanted to be by 30.. Employed.. married.. kids.. house.. car.. etc. Now if I just had the energy to keep up with it Not sure what to do for my birthday.. I was thinking go karts.. Will have to take a look into that tomorrow and set it up..
Went to port dover last week.. that was a blast. Met up with my grandma and aunt and cousins. It was nice to swim in the lake but I mixed up my cousins because I haven't seen them in so long.. it used to be that Sarah was blonde and Claire was a brunette.. but they switched.. and I really don't think that was fair.. lol I gotta say.. Mapquest sucks for directions. It took me 2 and a half hours to get there and it should have only taken about an hour and a half.. I ended up in Delhi... so after we got there it was almost time for them to leave.. The kids and I ended up sticking around a bit longer, going for frozen yogurt, walking the pier where there were guys jumping off on the end.. the one guys feet were bleeding.. apparently zebra mussels are sharp.. ew.. and on the way back we stopped at battlefield house. That was really cool because I haven't been there in over 20 years. It was cool to see the cherry tree my mom used to climb to pick cherries out of when I was Drew's age.
Anyhoo.. that's about all that's new.. it was a boring few weeks.. my friends all went away for 2 weeks and I did a lot of nothing.. lol
The baby is still sleeping.. so are the other kids.. I'm going back to bed :)

after doing fort george we went to downtown niagara on the lake.. got cake at the cakewalk :) I LIKE cake! and then Stacy and I took off with Tisha for a bit of window shopping.. there's a store there that has purses over 300$!!! and skirts over 360$!! holy crap.. it occurs to me that there is no bloody way possible to justify that.. like. you could buy an equally pretty skirt at walmart AND feed my family for a month on that! I honestly believe some people have more money than brains. After that we went back to Stewart and Stacy's for a movie in their yard.. they have a projection tv and set it up with a sheet on the fence.. it's like going to the drive in's only cooler.. popcorn machine and all!

Tonight I'm having a hard time sleeping.. Andrew has gone camping with my sister Angela for 11 days.. I miss the little guy something fierce.. it's 3am.. 4 days til he comes home.. I can't wait!

Tisha has learned to creep today. She can get across the kitchen floor to get a crinkly plastic bag in SECONDS! I actually have no idea how she moves though.. it's like she pulls forward with her hands but moves by bouncing herself forward by kicking her feet... kinda neat to watch. I am so not ready for her to be crawling.. I wasn't expecting anything like this yet.. the house is SO not babyproof yet! I have my work cut out for me now..
