Matey is doing great (as long as I stay away from milk) and is smiling and starting to giggle and is finding out that his hands can flail (which sometimes knock stuff over and hardly hits his own self anymore) and that he has feet (not sure what to do with those yet, not even to chew on them) and I think he's starting to get bored so I'm looking for a playmat/baby gym to help keep him entertained and anything that gets close to his mouth must be tested (with his tounge).
thePirate has got his orders (Sept. 8th-ish) so we're starting to get all set on that. I've pretty much got everything packed for the first part of moving and hopefully once the first batch is moved it will be easier to see what's left and hopefully it will all work out.
Well Matey is calling for me, I'll find the camera and update pictures tomorrow.

jellyfish. thats my noun but there are several adjectives, i dont know which one i like most with it. excited, worried, aggressive, thoughtful. (if your curious of this process look at the 2nd comment on my last post.) I think worried and thoughtful are my favorite.

Ain't he a cutie? He can scooch himself a whole inch.
As some of you may know I've decided to make handmade cards as a way to earn play money while thePirate is in Iraq, I need help with a name for it. All I can think up are names like: best wishes, first impression, ect... nan thought of: cards ocasionally or cards on occasion. I'm not sure about that exactly for a name but I like the idea/play on words of it. I need a name so I can get a stamp like Jennie has so people know where the cards came from.
I'm excited. now I just have to wait until the stuff gets here so I can start. I'll be getting the supplies july 20th so if you know of anyone who needs cards after that send them to me. The first couple orders I do will be paper cost only as I make sure I know what I'm doing and how much I should charge for them.

I've been trying to find ways to make a little bit of extra money recently and I realized the easiest way would be to tighten the belt at home. Now how to do this is I'm not sure. But I came across the site personal finance guide and have bookmarked it for later reading. It goes above and beyond just balancing your checkbook but also talks about banking, investments, loans, retirement... it's an impressive list. Hopefully I can get thePirate to check it out too because now-a-days everyone could use a brushing up on how to make money by saving money.
LOVE YOU ALL!

So now that thePirate has graduated NCO academy his higher ups are treating him as if he were a Sgt. While in some ways this is cool he still isn't getting a Sgt paycheck and instead of a four day weekend he only gets a three day cuz he got assigned CQ cuz he's a Sgt (just not officially).
Matey is doing SO good today (ie sleeping lots) I could almost kick myself for not being at home and cleaning. Although it might just be that AuntSandy's house is boring! However I greatly doubt that since how here there's a TV bigger than Matey's mommy and real cable to boot.
I want Vocaboly.com . I'm going to download the free trail as soon as I get back to my computer and prolly buy the real one once I've moved to Idaho. Its a vocabulary builder software and it apparently has games to test your knowledge of words. Now this might just be my mom in me but I love learning new words and then using them.
