Well Worth the Wait!


Well as all of you know I get addicted to some silly games. One of these games is Pet Society on Facebook. It is a role playing game I guess you could say. You first make your pet and then give it a name. My pet is named Lily. Then you get a basic one room house.  From there you get to decorate the house and dress your pet. You have to keep your pet clean, happy, and fed.  You also can win trophies along the way for different achievements. As you continue to play and gain points you move up levels. The highest level now is 34. I am at level 28. But the best part is the game follows the holidays.  So now they are doing Christmas. They bring out new items every Monday for us to buy. It is the highlight of my Monday. You also can visit other friends houses and see how they decorate their house and pet. I have gone a little over board and have added 112 friends. I know it is silly but Pet Society is just addictive.

Now since Reiggin knew how much I love Pet Society. He knew I would enjoy Animal Crossing:City Folk. So has a early Christmas present he got me the game and the wii mic. This game rocks. I could play it for hours. Shoot I do play it for hours each day. It is similar to pet society. First you name your person. Then you name the town you live in. Then off you go on the bus. You get your very own house. That you can decorate. You have to work to pay off the mortgage of the house. As you pay off the mortgage your house gets bigger. There are fun things to do in town like fish, catch bugs, dig for fossils, cut down trees, pick fruit, and visit your friends and neighbors. The best part is with the wii mic you can talk and play with people online. So I get to play and chat with my best friend Lisa who lives in California. Animal Crossing:City Folk also follows the holidays and has special events though the year. It is just to much fun.

Now enough about my video game addiction. Here is a update on how Virginia is growing. We took her to the doctors for her first set of vaccanations. Needless to say that was not fun. She was fussy for awhile afterwards. But we found out she now weighs 11 pounds. She is 22 inches long. The doctor said she is in the 50th pecentile. Which is right where she should be according to the doctor. I just can't get over how much she has grown. Looking back at old photos, you really can see the growth. She is now smiling at us and we heard her laugh for the first time on Sunday. It is just to cute.

We are currently using cloth diapers instead of disposable diapers. This as been a challenge. First I wasn't to thrilled. I mean how many people love swirling a diaper in the toliet and squezzing it dry. Not I. But now I have a different method. I also have gotten better at putting the diapers on . I do the twist method. It seems to be doing the trick. I am slowly starting to get on board with the whole cloth diaper thing. I don't think I will ever love it as much as my friend Katie. But I will be able to stick with the program.

Now to wrap things up here are some photos for your enjoyment!

That very first pic of Virginia where it looks like she's smiling doesn't even look like the same baby I saw last week!
