long time no post

So sorry I haven't been posting - I know some of you family peeps (especially those that have moved to another country for the next few months) check up for info on Alessia, but I have been exhausted!!! Actually I don't think that word even does it justice...I am waaaay beyond exhausted at this point. But let's not dwell. Here are some Alessia updates:
She's having another bout of teething this past week and was CRANKY at the end of the weekend/beginning of the week. The drooly monster has returned. But today she was back to her smiles and giggles, so we forgive her.
She's been "talking" up a storm. I think she's going to be just like her mamma - a big mouth! Her new sounds are funny gurgles and sounds she makes while sucking air in through her mouth. She gets a kick out of it. The gurgly sounds probably feel funny. And she looks at you like "you know what I mean?" I just immitate her or talk back and we both crack up.
Saturday night we finally made the big move: Alessia slept in her crib in her own room. She loved it, but I had a hard time. I kept going in there to check on her. She was sleeping so soundly, I couldn't tell if she was breathing and startled her a few times when I checked. She's still in there. I guess we all sleep better like that, although I do miss having her sleep snuggled up next to me in the bed sometimes. She still wakes up at least twice during the night, but Mark has been a big help and going to get her and bring her to me to eat, then I put her back.
Lately, she's been seriously eyeing our food, drooling like crazy when she watches us eat and has tried to grab food from my hands on occasion. But our dr. says it's best to wait until 6 months before introducing any food, so she's got a little over a month to go. Poor baby! You should see her when she watches her friend Eliza eat.

Um...I think that's it for now. Sorry there's no pics. We finally set up a new office and switched computers, so I haven't moved my files yet or had time to load any new pics on this comp. I promise to have some soon.
Now it's off to bed with my sorry ass so I'm not a complete zombie at back-to-school night tomorrow (my second one this week - oh the pleasures of teaching both 7th and 8th grade).
