One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

9 Months

Here she is -- my peanut is now 9 months old! Well, she turned 9 months last week -- but I have been a blogging slacker lately. Here are a couple of pics:

Things have been crazy this past week... we had some daycare issues, ended up finding a short-term solution, but are still looking for a long-term solution. Finding a good daycare is SO extremely stressful! We are hoping to find another in-home daycare like the one we were using -- but there aren't many that have infant openings (children are considered an infant for daycare purposes until they are 2 in the state of Washington). We are also thinking about the possibility of a nanny... I love the idea -- but I hate the expense. We are talking to our neighbors about sharing a nanny. They have a little boy that is about 5 months old, and they aren't extremely happy with their current daycare situation -- so it would be great it they want to share a nanny that would watch both of our kids. I just hope we find a long-term solution soon --- the search is stressing me out!

Good thing we are going on vacation the end of the week :) We are leaving Wednesday night and heading to California to visit Trav's parents. Chuck (Trav's brother) and Kim (his wife) will be there, too. They live here in Seattle, but we are all taking a "family vacation" together. Trav's parents rented a place in Bodega Bay, California for us all to stay at for a couple of days. I guess it is somewhere along the coast -- I'm sure it will be nice!! I can't wait for Wednesday already :)
