New Apartment

Last week we set up some appointments to see some apartments in the area. After we looked at one of them, we drove over to Tom's firm to see how long it would take and decided to look at apartments in the area. We were pulled over to the side of the road writing down the phone number for an apartment when a woman pulled up next to us. We rolled down the window and she asked us if we wanted to see the apartment. It turns out that she is the leasing agent.

We didn't know anything about the apartment, but we went in to look at it. After walking in I thought it was way out of our price range, but when I asked the leasing agent what the price was it turns out it was only slightly out of our price range. But we were able to negotiate the price down a little bit and we move in next week. We are sad to be leaving our current apartment and ward, but we are excited about having a larger apartment. Plus we are close to Tom's firm (click on the photo and it will get bigger).

We will post pictures once we get moved in.

In other news, Harper has started walking. She took her first steps a few weeks ago (I'm a bad mother, I don't have a video of her walking yet). She still prefers to crawl, but the other day I looked up and she was walking across the room. That was a rare occasion; she normally just takes a few steps between pieces of furniture.

We are continually amazed how much Harper learns by watching us. The other day she found Tom's headphones and put them up to ears like she was listening to something. Where did she learn that?
We took Harper in for her 15 month appointment earlier this week. We have been waiting for Tom's work insurance to begin so we were a couple weeks late. Her current stats:

Height: 31.25 inches
Weight: 20 pounds 4 ounces

She is in about the 60th percentile for height and the 10th for weight. We really like her new pediatrician (thanks to the Cralls and Hawkins for recommending him) and we actually discovered during our appointment that we went to the same high school. Crazy.

wow! So much for that long California commute people complain about! So is this a drop off Tim at work situation or can he walk? It's hard to tell scale-wise

And close to church too...I assume you meet at the chapel behind the temple. And, does your pediatricitan worry about her relatvie low weight? Have you broken her of the "I won't eat anything but raisins and yogurt" thing yet?

That's an amazing location. How does it compare to your old apartment (size, amenities, etc.)? Can't wait to see it!

So glad that Dr. Kessler worked out for you guys too! That is hilarious that you went to the same high school!

Can't wait to see pictures of the new place.

And more video of Harper!! She is adorable.

Looks like you're about to settle in to "real life!"

Please keep us posted!
