House Hunting

Well, we haven't dropped off the face of the earth, but we've been really busy looking for houses. Besides, we know everyone just wants pictures of Gabriel, and we still don't have a camera cable to replace the one he ate.

Anyway, we put in a bid on a house today, so we will find out tomorrow what the sellers think of it. Our closing in Ann Arbor is on 13 June, so we'll be up there next week for that. We'd like to be in a new house by the middle of July. It will be Gabriel's birthday present, maybe.

Gabriel is growing so quickly. He hardly uses his walker anymore, because he can get closer to things if he crawls over and stands up on them. He slept for 10 hours straight last night, but it's looking like he's going to be up all night tonight. Right now, he is jumping up and down on his bed, holding on to the rail. He's shaking his head like a weirdo and laughing about it. He's also pushing his face against the mesh and trying to lick his mommy's face and then jumping up and looking down at her, laughing. He needs to get to sleep!

We saw that the Miss Universe pageant is live in Thailand. We really miss it there. Even though we were glad to come home to our comforts (like a bed without ants and a familiar bathroom), we have missed it so much ever since we got back. Our plan is to go back there for our 5 year anniversary, if we can wait that long.
