chloe: the bigness of big


:melting with a donkey:

i think that we are officially spent. 2 more days until moving and things seem a bit much. we are trying to move forward with strength and stamina, but it can b difficult with a kid who is honking like a donkey every ten seconds and a landlord that is threatening to take away money.

alas, the place is nearly packed, the landlord is being taken care of and we made great progress in changing our address today. tomorrow morning we get the keys and can rest a bit easier.

as for chloe, she's the same. like i mentioned, her new favorite thing is to grab things and then let them go, and to make this awful honking noise that sounds like a choking donkey. i hope this is short lived. today, jared and i were eating lunch while she sat in her chair, which i always pull up to the table for her to be a part of the action. whenever we eat, she seems to get very quiet and pensive, staring at us with great intensity. it's almost like she's jealous of our big people food that she can't be a part of. anyway, she was pulling that same routine today, but with a twist. we were both chewing our jalapeno and goat cheese burgers when she made the most devious face at us by narrowing her little eyes for just a second as if to say, "you sneaky bastards." we both just started laughing, but then realized this was the foreshadowing of things to come. our little angel has a sin nature. of course, she probably didn't realize what she was doing, but you could've sworn that she was an immature, manipulative adult in the body of a 4 1/2 month old baby.

anyway, continued prayers for our moving/landlord situation would be much appreciated.
