4 weeks later...

Wow, I have really slacking when it comes to keeping up on my blog! That's right, it has been 4 weeks... :( Well let me tell you why.

Shortly after Josh wrecked his mountain bike, Oakland and I got to go to Island Park with my family for a reunion. I will post pictures of that later because Oakland and I had a blast and really enjoyed spending so much time together. The weekend we got home, we moved...in to a HOUSE!!!! Yay! (pictures will come later) I have loved every minute of it but with moving comes packing, heavy lifting, unpacking, putting things away, organizing, etc. As you can imagine Josh is not able to do a lot of that since his accident so I have been trying to take on his duties as well. We also do not currently have internet so when I do have down time, I can't blog. I know lame excuses again! But I had some time today at my Mom's so thought I would just update you on Oakland....

She is getting so big! Her first tooth is coming in, she is SOOO close to crawling but normally ends up in tears of frustration when she can't reach the toy I have put out of reach. Her hair still stands on end and I can't do anything about it. :)

She loves reading and My Grandma gave her the "5 green and speckled frogs" book. It is by far her favorite and she loves to look through the pages.

Like I mentioned- we moved. It was very happy and sad, Oakland absolutely adores my Grandparents so it was really hard moving out of their basement. She got to see them so much and I think the world of them and am amazed at what great grandparents they are to me, but especially how much they love Oakland. I miss them a lot during the day when I'm at home but am glad that I can still visit whenever I want!

Oakland loves our new home (now... she didn't at first and was really scared of being by herself in any room of the house)

Her hair is long enough but not thick enough yet to put in a pony tail (and who needs a pony tail when it already sticks up right?). I found some little clips that seem to work good... but as you can tell from Oaklands face- she's not really a fan.

Oakland is a very good eater but is also very in to feeding herself. :)

Her new favorite thing is Bath- time!

She is now in a forward facing car seat and it is such a LIFE SAVER for a baby that hates car seats. She's a little better now that she can see everything and I can reach her if I need to.

Oakland has a really cute personality lately. I took this picture last night because she was being the biggest ham! She screams all the time- not being upset, she's actually really happy when she does it normally... just likes to hear her own voice I guess?

Now that I'm back in the groove of things, I'll try to post more, but enjoy the pictures for now!

She is so beautiful and you can tell she has tons of personality. I have to say...I love the hair. It just adds to her cute lil expressions. Glad to see you are doing well and that Josh is on the mend.
