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!!" :)

Daycare Solution...

Well -- after much looking and interviewing, we have found a new daycare for Evelyn. The play area is huge, very clean, lots of toys and activities, it seems great. It is another family (in-home) daycare -- very similar to our old daycare situation. We are in the process of filling out the paperwork, putting our deposit in, etc.

The only bad thing about our new daycare is location --- it is kinda near where Travis works, but not where we live. It is probably a good 15 minutes from our house (but not during rush hour). We decided that we would put up with the drive for a quality daycare. But the location is also kind of a motivator for me... I am thinking it would allow me to go to the gym more. Daycare is close to my favorite gym location (with my gym membership, I can go to any of the different locations) This will be great for days that I finish work at a decent time --- I will pack a gym bag with me and go to the gym before picking up Evelyn.

A great thing about this location is they will be able to take on our next infant sometime around next July (I will be on maternity leave for a few months). This is great --- if all goes well, we won't have to search for a new daycare next year when baby #2 arrives!

Here is a picture of Evelyn from this morning -- she likes to sit up in her crib once she gets up -- then she babbles to herself a bit and waits for us to come get her. Looks like it is time to lower her crib mattress!! (we probably should have done it already -- she will be pulling herself up any day now)

Oh goodness...what a ham. I love the pic of Evelyn and yes...I do think it is time to lower the crib...hehehe

Yay for finding a new daycare. It sounds perfect and no more worries for you or Trav!!

Congrats on the new daycare. I know it is so tough to find one you're comfortable with. I put my day care lady down as my 'in case of emergency' person on a form the other day. It made me realize how close we are to her and how lucky we are for that!

That has to be such a relief! I know that I am so happy to have Justin somewhere that we LOVE!

PS. Justin has the same crib as Evelyn - I love it!

it's so cute when you go into their room and they're already up and all happy. (Kobe sleeps in our room now, but he did sleep in his own room at one time...)
