Ignoring the Bloglands

I don't know what up with me lately. I have been completely ignoring the blog and all the blogs that I read. I will have to take a few moments to catch up on everything. I miss the blogs.
I guess nothing too exciting has been going on in my life. Maizey is still such a good little girl. 11 months old now! WOW. So strange. OMG, though, I am bursting with love for her. It's so unlike anything I have ever felt before in my life.
She is doing such cute little things all the time.
She laughs when we laugh, she has started signing "more". We are working on "please" and "milk". She shakes her head "no" when we say no or when she doesn't want something. She is saying Mom, Momma, Dad, Daddy, Dada and she also says "hi", and waves hello and bye.
Most nights she sleeps between 10 to 12 hours. She has started giving us some trouble with going to bed. She use to go down really easily, now she has wanted to have cuddles until she falls asleep. I love the cuddle time, but at the same time, I know it isn't good to get her into a routine of rocking and cuddling every night.
She has been waking in the night the past two nights, we think she is teething. Nothing would make her happy last night, so we let her sleep in our bed. I also love cuddling in bed all night, but at the same time again, I know we shouldn't be getting her into that habit.
We have had Angela's dad's two dogs right now, until he comes back to Canada. He will be back on November 7. The people who were supposed to be watching them decided to go back to Portugal early. The poor dogs weren`t being taken care of that well though. They both needed to see the vet the day after we got them. The one had an ear infection (really bad) and the other was missing two claws, and her toes were bleeding. They also seemed to be starving for attention. I feel bad for them.
It`s really hard though, having 4 dogs in the house.
I booked a King Jacuzzi Falls View suite in Niagara Falls for Angela and I. It is sleep cheap in Niagara falls so I got the room for $60. Not a bad deal. We aren`t yet sure if we will be bringing Maizey with us.
Maizey`s daycare is all set up, she starts on November 15. I got back to work on December 5.
I am wanting to get excited about Christmas, but, It`s just not exciting to me. I mean, it would be if we lived in a place that I liked, and felt like home, but right now, I don`t feel cozy in this house. I don`t know what I am looking for, but I am sure when I find it, then I will know.
We are still currently doing a house hunt. There have been two houses that I could see myself living in. Other than that... nothing.
Ok, well that's it for an update for now... I have to go to bed. I will try to be more attentive to my blog, but I can`t make promises.
