Spring is Coming!

Finally, it feels like spring is on the way. Although, I'm trying not to get my hopes up too much because chances are that it will snow at least one more time before warmer weather is here to stay. Right now I'm on Spring Break from school and I'm just spending time with Rebecca at home and getting a few things done.

She had her 6 month check-up on Tuesday and is growing great:) She weighs 16 pounds and 1 ounce and is 27 inches long. She has made very little effort to learn how to crawl because she hates being on her tummy, but she loves to sit up and is very sturdy. When her doctor saw how well she sits and stands she thought she might be an early walker - we'll have to wait and see.

Our basement is getting very close to being done!! Dan and his friend Scott have worked on it almost every night for the last 2 weeks and they have come a long way. The ceiling is finished and almost all of the trim is in place. There are still a few doors to stain (which is my job) and then we need to pick out carpeting. I'm so excited to have it finished and be able to play down there with Rebecca this summer.

Another thing I love about our basement is that it is a walk out and we can go right outside and play in the "soon to be" green grass. Yesterday we put up Rebecca's new swing and she seemed to really enjoy it! Hopefully we can get outside again today for a little fresh air and sunshine.

It's hard to capture her great big smile of delight when the swing is in motion :)

Happy Birthday to my sibs Grace and David. Hope you have a great one!
