I've started to write a new blog post lots of times over the last almost 2 months, but obviously never got very far! I just haven't really felt like it. Oh well. I'm trying to remember that I want to be consistent at recording my children's lives, and let that be my motivation! You've all been there, right?

We are all doing well. My rockstar-of-a-husband took all 4 sections of the CPA exam in less than 4 months, and he's DONE! I am so proud of him and proud to be his wife. He works so hard for our little family. Tyler started work this week and is excited to get into his clients and team after training is over. Now that he is done studying, we are really going to get our behinds into gear and find a house! We have so enjoyed being with the Juergens fam and are so grateful that they have let us bombard their lives for the last 4 months.

Millie is so grown up... I love and hate how quickly she learns and changes. Sometimes when I see pictures of her as a little baby it just makes my heart ache! I miss that little girl. But I'm so excited every time Millie learns something new and am so lucky to be able to watch her grow each day. She is quite the mover- always on the go. She crawls like a champ, pulls up on stuff, and even walks around if she's got a steady hold on a couch or ottoman. She claps, growls, and smacks her lips all the time. It's so cute to watch her explore! Her favorite toys are still remote controls, cell phones, etc. anything electronic-looking. My dad gave her his old palm pilot and she thinks it's the greatest. Millie is learning how to make messes and get into things that she shouldn't... but I kind of love it!! Now here come about a zillion pictures. I can't help it!

I love her face in this pic!

You can almost hear the evil, mischievous laugh

This was when we knew she was too smart for the little tub

Still VERY attached to the pacifier

"Oh, hey Mom... just opening these for you...."

Finally got her a highchair a few weeks ago! It's a win-win for everyone.
