Amanda's newest "thing"

I took this video of her a couple of days ago. She can be so weird sometimes *lol*

Nacimiento 2007

Last week Wednesday through Sunday we stayed in a cabin at Lake Nacimiento in Central California.

This used to be a yearly trip until 2005 when we chose to go to Lake Powell instead, and last year (2006) I was pregnant and didn't want to deal with it! Usually we tent camp, but this year I insisted on a cabin for Amanda's sake.

The first morning she was up at 6:30am on the button! So we went for a walk while everyone else slept. It was *cold*, so we bundled up:

These were the only other things out that morning:

The rest of the week, she slept in until about 7:30 so we didn't have to go on a walk! I forgot to take pictures of her in her life jacket on the boat for the first time Thursday, but she did very well. I reapplied sunscreen every 15 minutes, and I *think* we avoided any sunburns. Even so, just to make sure, she didn't go out on the boat again. Instead she hung out at the cabin:

When I went out on the boat Saturday our friends took a bunch of pictures while taking care of her, that they promised to send, so I will post those as soon as I can.

One bad thing, Amanda got sick Friday, and Friday night was NOT good. We didn't get any sleep, and Amanda was so stuffed up she could barely breathe. Until I figured out to lay her in her carseat which kept her upright enough so the congestion would drain out.

Even so, she's still sick a week later. I had to pick her up early from daycare 3 times this week - twice for a 100 degree fever, and once because she was uncontrollably coughing and crying. There's something going around though because 3 other ladies at work had the same problems with their infants. I took her to the doctor on Tuesday, but he said there's not much I can do, just give her decongestant and tylenol for the fever. I hope she gets better soon because it's breaking my heart that she's in pain and there's nothing I can do about it!

A Labor Day Baptism

This past Sunday September 2nd we had Amanda baptised finally. She did very very well with the pastor. She went right to him, and even seemed very interested when he was talking. Not even a peep when the water was poured on her! I was so proud! She made up for it afterwards though, I dropped her off at the Church childcare, and within 30 minutes I was paged because she was crying and they couldn't get her to stop :P

Anyway, I don't have any pictures from the ceremony yet, but here are a few pics I took of her in her dress at home:
