More changes

Here's what is going on in Cochran-land. :)

  • Casey recently got a new job at Hibbett Sports. (For those who were unaware, he lost his job at Harding at the end of March due to seizure issues and his inability to work. He's doing better and has been trying to find a job--any job--so we can pay our bills.) Orientation is Tuesday, at which point we will find out what position he has, what hours they expect him to work, etc.
  • I am still working in the nursery at the gym. I got a really great offer for another job today, and we are still considering the possibilities it might have. More on that later (once I know more about it).
  • Abby is now 9 months old. In case you missed the last post, she is trying to WALK! She has taken a couple of steps by herself and will stand alone for a little bit, but she's still a little nervous to just take off on her own. Sometimes we can trick her by getting her to hold on to a toy or her sippy cup when she tries to walk, but she figures it out after a couple of steps and sits down. She also has her 3rd tooth coming in, this time on the top. It's one of the side teeth instead of the middle ones, so this should be interesting. :)
  • I am starting back to grad school in July to continue work on my Masters of Education in Early Childhood Special Ed. (same as my BA degree). The current plan is to be done by next summer--only one year from now! If I can stick to it, I will be able to make more money if/when I go back to work full time when Abby is older. (I think I can, I think I can...)
Tara took a lot of cute pictures a few days ago of us playing in the backyard with Abby, so I hope to have those soon to put a couple of them on here and Facebook. In the meantime, here's our little mess (literally):

I'm so sorry to hear about the job loss, but way to go on getting another job! 9 months old and Abby is trying to walk!? WOW! On another note, I think they do make cake pans like that, but I think they are expensive. Rachel, let me do some research and see if I can find some people online who have made butterfly cakes...I would love to try to make a birthday gift, butterfly cake, for baby Abby. Then again, if this is a job for mommy, I understand. :D I'll still do some research for you and see what I can find.

Rachel, I found 3 pretty cute cakes of differing difficulty. If you will facebook me your email address or put it on my blog and i'll delete it, then I can send you the videos. Let me know. :)
