Chicago Update...

So we finally got to Chicago for the summer of security sales again last week! It's been a rough transition this time for me... Taya hadn't slept good all of last week so she was pretty ornery. We figured she must just be uncomfortable in her little pack n play, so finally yesterday I went and bought her new sheets and bed rails and decided to give it a go in the twin bed. I was nervous about it all day but she was so excited about her new animal sheets and loved jumping on the big girl bed all day :) She cried for 2 seconds when I put her down last night and then didn't make a peep! Yay!!! That was probably the best night sleep she's gotten since we've been here so you can imagine how happy I was. I was nervous for her nap today again, but she surprised me and went right down and had a fantastic nap. She still hasn't figured out that she can actually get out of the bed all by herself, so hopefully that'll last a little while longer :) I'm so proud of her for the transition, and proud of myself too, haha. Not really, all I did was say a prayer BEGGING for her to just go to sleep for me! :)

Taya's been loving riding the elevator in our apartment and standing outside on our deck. She has a little friend accross from us that she talks to and waves to everyday, it's so cute. She loves watching the squirrels (or "puppies") chase each other in the trees right outside our apartment. She cries everytime we walk past the park and don't actually get to go play, but is happy with feeding the geese instead. She can reach every single thing in this place so I've had an awesome time picking up after her! Let's just say our house is not the cleanest thing lately!

We went to the zoo for a couple hours today and Taya absolutely loved it. It was so much more fun taking her this year. She loved seeing the rhino's ("ino's") and the hippo's ("boa's") and mostly the elephants. She made elephant noises all day, it was so cute. And by elephant noises I mean she pretty much just spit all day :) So adorable, haha.

Cameron has been doing so awesome with selling, he's somewhere in the 80's. He's been so motivated and we're so proud of him. Taya has loved spending what little time she has with him. He flew to Atlanta last week for a few days and everyday all day she'd hear a noise and ask "daddy? ...daddy?" It was so sad, she looovvveeesss her daddy!

That's about it for my massive update on what we've been up to. Sorry so long and boring! I would upload pictures, but I haven't been able to find my camera battery charger for one camera I brought out here and the other camera I brought out died on me today. Awesome. Good thing my birthday is coming up! :)
