Job Update

Well, it looks like he'll be there longer than 2 weeks but, he doesn't think he'll be hired on after the 3-6 month contract period. Ugh. A job hunting he will go! I hate the unknown. Stresses me out!

We are so stressed right now. My husband recently went on an interview, got the job and with higher pay...awesome, right? We were very happy. Then they decided they wanted him to be hired on for a contract position. It was to last between 3-6 months and after that he would probably get hired on for a permanent position. Today, his first day there, they told him they will only be using him for two week a trial run and that they are not sure he's right for the position!! WTH? I'm so freaked out right now. So in two weeks he could be jobless. He went from getting a new job and being told this in the matter of a few days. If they do keep him on for the 3-6 month period he gets no benefits, no paid time off...even for sick days. So we went from happy and excited to worried. Ahhh! Please send good vibes our way!

Chloe's Six Months and New Job Updates

Wow. It's been a long time since I've blogged.
There has been so much going on lately!
Josh just started a new job...well in two days he will be starting. the pay is higher but, it's a contract position that lasts anywhere from 3-6 months and after that he may get hired on permanently. Also...he found out after he took the offer that he may not be getting any paid time off, such as vacation and sick days. So that part really sucks. He doesn't get any benefits either. Well, he has a job...that's the important part! His current job is not stable. People have been getting fired left and right! Scary.

Chloe has been growing so fast! She is now 6 months old, weighs about 18lbs. She's now into 6-9(or 6-12) months clothing, though she can still fit into some 3-6mos. She loves to babble. Her new favorite things to say are Babababa, diydiydiy(sounds like "die" but didn't want to type that haha). She is a rolling around pro and tries to scoot with a little success sometimes! As far as food. Well, we have tried frozen mango in a mesh bag thing and have spoon fed smashed up banana to her twice. It's really just to let her try something new and for fun. She doesn't eat it every day. I think pretty soon I might try some avocado. So pretty much exclusively breastfed with a little food once in a while. She loves playing with her brothers. Kieran is her constant source of entertainment! Hehehe. She gets really excited around the cats. She loves her jumperoo and exersaucer, playing on the floor with her toys and of course being held or worn. She likes bath time but, only if it's with Mommy. She gets scared and cries if I bathe her without getting in as well. so we try to avoid that. Hmmm...what else. She likes to make sounds by patting her hands on a table on clapping on ours hands. There is just so much that I know I'm forgetting some. I just can't get over how quickly this 6 months has gone by. It seems like I just had her!

Well, I'm thinking about making this blog private. Of course I'd invite people to join it. I really don't want to have to do that. But some things have come to my attention and it makes me a little uncomfortable with being so 'out there' and having pictures up for just anyone to copy and use as they wish. I can't go into it but that is part of it. For now I'll just add my name or email address to my pictures.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!! :)
