Wednesday is Daniel's Birthday! There have been many a year where I've forgotten his birthday until the day before and had rather lame plans. But not this year! I started planning like 2 weeks ago, and I've already gotten him a couple gifts and invited people over for a barbecue on Saturday. I hope he feels very loved and special this week. I do love him very much.
Well since we're having people over this weekend, I am extra motivated to clean... I think I am actually going to get all the laundry done, mop the kitchen floor, clean out my pantry, vacuum the stairs, you know, all the stuff that generally gets neglected to do other more important things like cuddling with my baby, knitting, reading, cooking.... Daniel's extra happy about the planned "week of cleaning" because he REALLY wants to call a realtor and get our house on the market, which we still haven't done. Selling our house is the biggest piece of our "leaving the military" puzzle... We're planning to call the realtor NEXT WEEK while our house is still super clean from our party. I think this is a good plan.
So Ezekiel has gotten big enough for a jonny-jump-up. You know those hanging chairs on springs that you put in the door frame? Someone gave us one, and he loves it! He doesn't do any jumping yet, but he does bounce a bit on his feet, and he likes turning around to look at different things. Basically he likes being in a vertical position. I've been able to get a lot more done lately because he is so content in that thing. He's in it right now! :)
Ok I'd better go be productive!
