It's a busy time of year

I got put on notice from the blog fairy that it was way past time for an update. What can I say, we’re busy people.

If you didn’t get a chance to watch Oprah, it was a great segment that talked about a fundraising effort by several of Hollywood’s finest, including Courtney Cox, David Arquette, Ken Paves (stylist to the stars), Eva Longoria, and several others. They raised over $2 million for EB research!

As far as around here, we’re keeping busy. For several months Joe and I have been house hunting. If you have been there before, you know how discouraging it can be at times. Well, we finally found a great house that was actually in livable condition, we put an offer, which was accepted, and were moving forward. Unfortunately we pulled out of the deal yesterday. Two words…bad neighborhood. Apparently it’s VERY bad. Of course it looked great in the middle of the day, and even at night when we drove past to check things out it looked ok. But everyone kept warning us that it was a bad neighborhood and that we should not go any further. We heeded their advice and are once again beginning the house search.

Ella is doing great. She has one of her little bottom teeth in, and 3 are poking through on the top. She had a couple of cranky days, and the drool is pouring out of her mouth, but all in all she’s handling it well. She is also still on the verge of crawling. She is really good at going backward, and tonight Beck and I swear we saw her take one little movement forward, but that’s it! We are on pins and needles! Beck predicts that within a week she’ll start crawling. You know that I’ll post as soon as it happens.

And yes, we will get new pictures up soon. Just so you know, she’s still cute.
