The Home Stretch

Sorry about the lack of blogging the last few weeks. We have been SUPER busy. Papers, posters, math homework, presentations, work, a baby, and getting ready to move, have all kept us busy. We can't believe we will be moved out in two weeks! We have so much to do between now and then, but after that, we are free! (At least for a week while we are on vacation...) We are so excited to be almost done, but it is really hard to do the things we need to get done.

Daniel and I have recently been diagnosed with a severe case of senioritis. This terrible disease often strikes graduating seniors sometime during the last semester of their undergraduate education. It is marked by a decreased motivation in studies, increased procrastination, and a greater need to be entertained. They often "just don't care anymore." Experts believe that this disease is caused by a lack of sleep, overdosing on cortisol (one of the stress hormones), and the knowledge that they are going to graduate no matter how they preform their last semester. This disease can be particularly severe in students that have already been accepted to a job or another college...basically they turn into lazy bums and would rather just sleep or watch a movie than write the paper that is due tomorrow.

Ok. Well, enough about us, Heather is doing great! She is learning new animal sounds and body parts everyday. She will be talking soon. She has been a little angel (although sometimes she is a little devil) considering how little attention she gets because we are so busy. Here are some recent pictures:

This is what Heather looks like when she needs a little attention:

This is what Heather does to entertain herself when mommy is busy:

Heather is such a happy girl, and makes all of the "horrible, terrible, no good, very bad days" better:

Heather loves to give kisses...especially fish kisses:

We love you all!
