Hello! I know I've been a major slacker with this, but it's been fun to read all your posts over the last few months, and I figured I'd better get a little update about us up.
Asher is now going on 6 months old, and he's growing soooo fast. He's starting to get his teeth, he says "da-da-da-da" when he's hungry instead of crying, and he likes to stand up and sit up a lot. He also loves to steal the pacifier from his cousin's mouth, but he's not rolling over yet. Go figure. Melissa's baby can stand up off the floor, bend over and pick something up, but he refuses to walk. He's now 14 months old. I guess babies do what they want on their own schedule.
As for us, I'm STILL at USU, thanks to part-time semesters and missing most of last year entirely, but this is my last hard semester, and I should have a biochemistry degree in May. I took the pharmacy admissions test in August and got in the 94th percentile, so I should be starting the 3-4 of professional school somewhere next year. The question is, "where!?"
There are no pharmacy schools in Alaska :o(
But, currently, the options are USN (in South Jordan), Colorado in Denver, New Mexico (Albuquerque), and Sullivan in Louisville, KY. Anyone have any thoughts on those places? It's scary to consider moving somewhere without ever having visited.
Emma got a job with a payroll company in South Jordan, to give her a better career option and to get free babysitting from her parents. So right now we're split up during the week and they come home to Logan on the weekends. I know this is nothing compared to what all you military couples go through, but it's still not the funnest thing ever. I've been lonely, and poor Mike has probably noticed with all the pestering I've been giving him.
Anyways, a Christmas get-together sounds fun. We need to do this now that it seems most of us are somewhat close to Brigham now.
