Saturday was yard sale day. Unfortunately, we didn't get rid of everything, in fact we have enough for another sale. But we made out alright. I went into this very excited about the idea of getting rid of everything and really simplifying out life. We are going to be moving in with friends for a few months to save money and try to figure out what we are supposed to do next. Stay in San Diego? Move away? Go to graduate school? We just don't know. But anyways, getting rid of a lot of stuff will make things easier. On Friday night, my attitude changed. As I looked over everything I was to sell, I felt sad. I like to think I am not materialistic, but I am sentimental. I didn't want to get rid of my couch. Even though, in the past, I had plenty of reasons why I no longer wanted it; it's too small, it's not my style anymore, it's too blue...This was the first piece of furniture Evan and I bought after our wedding. Blue has moved with us 5 times in the last 5 years. I've nursed and napped with Johnny hours and hours on this couch. Sigh. Well, the couch didn't sell. I am going to try again though. Maybe this time on Craigslist. One way or another I have to get rid of it, we just don't have the room where we are moving. At least I'll have a good picture to remember it by.

I just love this picture of Johnny. He is sitting on a quilt sewn by his great great grandmother, on the rocking chair that Evan's mom used to rock him in. What's he thinking about? He looks so reflective. People are always commenting on how mellow and observing he is and this picture shows that side of him. Of course, as I write this, he is behind me jumping and squealing like a maniac in his Johnny Jump Up.

This sweet little mouth has met it's first tooth. I woke up last Sunday morning to the sound of him making funny spitty noises and sucking on his fingers. That's when I felt a sharp little edge poking through. As cute as those a toothy baby grin is, I love Johnny's gummy smile. I guess I have a little while before he has a mouth full of teeth. This is sort of his first milestone. He doesn't roll over (he's close) or sit up yet, but the tooth is in. It's funny to watch him make new goofy faces and play with his mouth now that this intruder has arrived.

This picture was taken on my new camera phone. It's really pretty funny that I even own such a fancy gadget considering I fought even owning a simple cell phone for quite some time. Evan's mom bought them for us as an early Christmas present. Thanks, Mom! Are they necessary? Heck, no! But they sure are fun! We actually decided we needed cell phones because we are moving (again) and we don't want to have to keep changing our phone number. So,as of January first, we will only use our cell phones and no longer have a land line. What have we become?! But now I can take cute pictures of my boy to post. I will write more about the impending move another time. I just don't feel like going into it now. In the meantime, Evan and I have to try really hard to fight the urge to sit around playing with our phones, I always thought people who did that were weird. I guess I am a weirdo, too.
