I'm baaaaaack. Thanks everyone for your wonderful wishes- hope you are all doing well. I just sat for my 9-hours-board exam this past Saturday and I will find out the results in 8 weeks. Her Papa watched her while I was gone and seriously she didn't have any missing parts. Just kidding he actually does a great job watching her. I mean hubby fights to hold and care for her. I can tell that he will spoil her though since he tries to ruin every routine I create whenever he returns- but he is learning very quickly. What did I do since I disappeared? I peeked at some people's blogs and even couldn't help but add a few comments here and there. I settled into Florida; at least for now I'm starting to get used to the whole idea of heat in the Winter (ummm Not! really what's up with that?). I attended a close friend's wedding.

It was very difficult studying with my quickly growing child. She has gotten even more active and very easily bored. One minute she will be entertained by something and the next minute she would want something else. I learned her many different languages (I can tell you what every sound means and even when she is fake crying just for my attention)- my hubby is amazed by it. I can be in the kitchen and he will have her in the room and I will scream out to him she pooped and needs her diaper changed.
Mmeso cannot run up the stairs just yet (http://thesweetbitterlifeofanigboprincess.blogspot.com/2011/09/my-kid-ran-up-stairs-at-4-months.html) but she climbs everything like the picture below of her in the bath robe - she was 4.5 months (we already had to drop down the crib bed to give Mama piece of mind);

I have also enjoyed being the stay home mom and wife but is now working on getting out of the house more. Obtaining a Florida License has proven itself to be a nuisance- it takes a long time but as soon as I get that then on to employment. On another note I started insanity workout and I am on my second week- maybe one day I will post about my progress. I am also working on our Family's Christmas letter/greeting.
Hubby found out he was going to be underway for thanksgiving so I prepared a bunch of dishes and we marked thanksgiving on Tuesday and though Mmeso was sleepy I got a picture that will do for her scrapbook. I thank God for my husband, family, friends and that includes my blog friend, I thank God that my exam is over ... I thank God for giving us so much to be thankful for this year.
Happy thanksgiving and I hope that you guys had a wonderful thanksgiving - what do you have to be thankful for?
