Walking Now, Applying for College and Other Hobbies

Like sands through the hourglass…so…are the days…of our lives…

Who used to watch that soap? Anyone? Bueller? Yeah, so sands, hourglass…you get it. I haven’t posted in awhile – wait, didn’t I just post the other week? Oh no – that was TWO MONTHS AGO. WHAT?!

Did you know it becomes harder to post on your blog when your baby starts walking and can’t-sit-still-and-be-contained-in-any-way-shape-or-form? And then they start only taking one nap? What? When am I supposed to get things done?

Anyway. Nola is thriving. Doing all sorts of things and is right on track to be the genius/wonderful person we’ve all imagined. She started walking on Father’s Day (a much better present than a picture frame made from elbow macaroni in my humble opinion) and says a variety of obvious (read: only if you know baby-talk) words. She can say “car”, “truck”, “vroom-vroom” (for motorcyle and grandpa of course) “cheese” (naturally, being from Wisconsin) “wa-wa” (water) and goes “woof-woof” when she sees a doggie. To be a complete tease, she can say “ma-ma” and “daddy” but only on her watch, and not upon request. My favorite might be “be-booo” which means ROBE. The robe she wears after taking a bath. DUH.

She can operate our iPhones and send gibberish texts with the greatest of ease all while surfing the web and talking to her peeps. Oh. And she can do push-ups. That part is true – I’ll try to get video. And this year Nola went to Summerfest before us. My awesome party-status has been completely put to shame.

In other news, we have bought a house. Hooray! Chaos and moving to commence shortly…a typical July for the Quinn household.

Until the next time…enjoy our latest pics from Nola’s baptism.
