Been a while

I'm not sure anyone actually reads this, but if they do they'll notice that it's been a while since we have updated.

Going on in the lives of Cinnamon and Mike:

Cinnamon is still applying for jobs and still getting rejected. Subbing was supposed to be a temporary thing and it is seriously wearing on her. She really wants a full time every day sort of job. That doesn't mean she wants to leave her Lily girl, but she doesn't have the motivation to work after not working for days or weeks on end.

Mike tested for the Pierce County Police Department on February 23rd. We're still waiting to hear back on the test results. In the meantime he is continuing to work for the county and loves it.

Now on to Lily. Let's see, the last post here was in January. I'd say around that time Lily was able to roll from her belly to her back. She still hated tummy time. Now Lily loves tummy time because she can roll to her back and then back onto her tummy again! Yep, she can roll both ways! We're so proud of her. She started rolling from her back to her tummy around mid February. We now play baby treadmill where Lily will roll like mad and then we will pick her up, replace her at her starting spot and she'll do it all over again. She loves it. Her mobility doesn't end at rolling, she can also scoot ... backwards!!! Silly girl. Now Cinnamon spends her days watching like a hawk as Lily either tries to get stuck under things by rolling under them or scooting under them. Crazy girl.

In other news, February 17th-24th brought about a quite fun time for both Lily and Cinnamon. During that week, we (without Dad who was busy bringing home the bacon unfortunately) visited Grandma over in Alabama! We spent our days with Lily in a backpack walking along the beach, collecting seashells. We even went searching for alligators and saw a couple on our last day on the gorgeous coast. The week was great, seeing Grandma was great and I know everyone was sad when it was over. While there, Lily discovered that she liked to ride her pony (Grandma's knee) but she just hasn't had the same affinity for anyone else's knee since we've been home. ;D

Well, I suppose that's about it for the updates for now. Lily is 28.5 inches long, 20lbs 7oz in weight and has a 48.5 cm head. She is in the 100th percentile for all three - height, weight and head circumference.

Okay, I'm off! Hasta, bye from Mike and naah naah naaaaaah from Lily.
