Well, I haven't posted about the fam lately. Hopefully I can pick up the slack with this post.
Sarah is doing well. Her mom is here with us for a couple weeks and she is grateful for the extra set of hands and adult conversation during the days. She has been working hard lining up realtors to come and give us their thoughts on selling our house. We haven't been through this before, so we are trying to get a few opinions.
Curtis is a motor-mouthed little kid. He latches onto new words immediately and uses them in whatever context he cares to. He has had a blast with a visit from my parents a week and a half ago and now with Sarah's mom here. While his grandma is here, he gets to sleep on the top bunk of his bunk bed while grandma gets the bottom bunk. He has been doing really well with that. We had a big snow storm (well, 5 inches overnight) and we had a blast building a snow fort when I got home from work.
Eli is growing like crazy. He dishes out smiles all the time now. 3 months is definitely "over the hump" as far as the tough baby times go. He is almost sleeping through the night. He usually wakes up once for a 1 or 2 A.M. "snack". During the days he is also doing a lot of baby talk ("That's some good baby talk," says Curtis). He can hold his head up pretty well when he wants to now too.
I have been having fun teaching my Intro to Computers class, working with the CherryPy project and dreaming of building a boat (I have a couple books on the subject now!). I have also been applying to various job opportunities in Ohio and haggling with the company that installed our furnace to get a replacement unit installed.
We've only had it for a little over a year and it has crapped out on us a few times this winter. We had to spend a weekend away from home last month when it stopped working entirely. Anyhow, the good news is that they are supposed to be installing the new furnace tomorrow.
So there you have it. A good ol' fashioned family update. Hope you liked it.
