April Snow

Friday afternoon we were very thankful for our decision to hire a shingler to shingle our house. Early last week we were looking at the amount of time that we had in the next couple weeks to work on the house and realizing that it was April and we were starting the rainy season and we made the decision to hire a shingler. Curt made some calls & since we already had the shingles we were able to find someone that could do it right away, at a price we were happy with. It was so exciting to go out to the house each night and see progress, when we were not the ones physically doing it. We got a taste of what it would be like to have someone building our house for us, rushing home each night to see what had been done.

So Friday when the snow started to fly we were breathing a sigh of relief. Yesterday when the 30ish cm's of snow finally stopped we went out to the house to shovel out the snow. Not too much longer before we have the windows & doors in and the weather is no longer a concern for us working on the house.

Happy 1/2 year birthday to Luca, she's now 6 months old!
Luca is our little mover now, she rolls around and is getting her bum up in the air in preparation for crawling. If you leave her on the floor she will likely not be in the same place when you get back. She wants to get places and fast. She is sitting up on her own now too. She has started eating solids, yikes. I'm not sure I'm ready for the hassle of worrying about food for her. It's alot easier knowing all the food she needs is with me anywhere I go, no preparation needed. The first 6 months has gone by much faster with Luca then I remember with Nollie.

A Month Has Gone

Wow, I knew I was getting bad but I didn't realize that a month had gone by since my last post.

Easter was fun for us this year. Nollie was vibrating with excitement as she went around collecting eggs and eating the chocolate within. Jeff deep fried us a turkey for dinner. It looks bad but it was just the BBQ sauce that burnt on the outside, the inside was delicious.

Turning into such a little girl. She loves colouring, playing with stickers, potato head, playing with her guys (Fisher Price Little People), play dough, puzzles, etc. She has recently started wanting to go outside alot, this is great because it forces me to get out there too. She talks like crazy and is getting her manners with lots of please, thank you & your welcomes. She is getting better at sharing with Luca although she needs lots of reminders. She enjoys making Luca laugh. My favorite thing to watch is Nollie and Luca just laughing at each other, I'll have to get a video of it on here.

Growing like a weed, I'm constantly going through clothes taking out the ones that are too small and putting in larger ones. She has starting eating some pablum and is ravenous about it. She lurches at the food like she would starve if she didn't get it this second. She loves making noises and any toy or object that makes noises. She would be happy now if you could give her a steady supply of new items to check out. She's tired of the same old toys she's been playing with. I think she's getting frustrated because she just wants to be able to move. She is rolling around but she wants to get at all the cool stuff that's just out of reach. I must say the first 5 1/2 months have gone by much faster with Luca that they did with Nollie.

The House
It was so exciting to see the roof pannels going onto the house a month ago it felt like we were going so fast. Now I just can't wait to be done with anything related to roofing. I had no idea that all the extra work on the roof would take so long. Working on the house was a little more challenging with both girls out there and only Curt & I working. I couldn't wear Luca in the carrier since I was up and down the ladder and pushing up trusses etc. and until recently it was just a little cool for Nollie to be outside for too long. With mitts on she couldn't do anything and without her hands got too cold. We now have the Buchan's camper trailer out there so we have a place to get out of the wind for lunch and a place for Nollie to nap. This weekend we were working on all the overhangs. Next we will have to sheet the garage and then we can shingle.
