I went to Church on Sunday! I got the courage up and finally went to a local church I had been wanting to visit. Sophia and I had a lovely time. Sophia acted like a little angel through the whole service. She loved it when we sang and she loved the stained glass window the church has. She really desperately wanted my mini Communion cup filled with grape juice. Bad idea. Anyways at the end of the service I met a really nice lady. She asked if I would be interested in joining in on their mommy group. I was like heck ya! I love me some mommy groups!! Seriously I love meeting new people and am excited to get to know women from this church!
I am really starting to feel like Calgary is home. We have lived here for a year and half. I feel like this is my community now. The area I am in has a small town vibe and I really dig it. Did I just say dig it? I did. I am getting involved in my community and gosh darnit I love it. I also signed up to volunteer at the old folks home. Sophia and I will visit weekly starting in August to brighten up the days of seniors.
(Ok I am sounding very Pollyana-ish. Maybe this will give me more street cred...)
I haven't had a cell phone in about 3 years. I had one once that I never really used. I am cool like that. However I told Chris I really wanted a cell in case of emergencies. I just wanted a basic phone, nothing fancy. My only request was that it be pink. Somehow I got a blackberry!! How crazy is that?!? I love it. It's pink. It's awesome. When I get a call/email/text I get crazy excited. The only problem I can never answer it on time because I get too excited I end up dropping it or I get so flustered I push the wrong buttons. I told you I was cool like that.
I am going to have a garage sale on Saturday with my neighbor friend Jeannie. I can't wait to rid my house of all my useless stuff that I have been hanging onto. It will feel so good to be done with it. Whatever I don't sell will be shipped off to the goodwill. Good riddance!!
Sophia is still being super finicky with eating. It is making me crazy. All she wants to eat is sweet potatoes and cheerios. What a well balanced diet. I am wasting so much food trying to get her to eat something else. I would like this phase to be over with now thank you.
And a post would not be complete with out some Sophia photos....
Did you know I have two teeth..I'm soo excited!!
Hanging Dora by her ankles...
P.S. I made the barrettes Sophia is wearing in all these photos. Go me!
