|ready to get our stroll on|
bennett learned to wave and is [selectively] doing a lot of practicing. naturally, he only waves on his terms and won't do it on command. it's ridiculously cute so i try to get him to do it all the time, much to his dismay. he was flirting and waving at the lady behind us in the checkout at trader joe's yesterday, but wouldn't wave for me all morning. typical. also lately he's been much more willing to try new foods. his favorites are turkey and chicken, and he even likes brussels sprouts. unfortunately he also seems to have quite an affinity for dog food and we have had to set up a barricade so he can't get to george's food and water bowls. george only seems mildly irritated about the obstacle course.
joe and i watched les miserables last night. i loved it. obviously the first 40 minutes or so are so depressing and make you start wondering if life is worth living, but the remaining 110 minutes really help turn that around, at least a little. also, it was a bit of a mistake to watch it with joe because he now thinks that it's both appropriate and necessary to "sing-talk" everything. we did have a solid debate about whether or not anne hathaway deserved to win the oscar for best supporting actress for a movie she literally was in for about 15 minutes. i say, yes. joe isn't sold.
no updates on the house situation yet. we decided to hold off on looking at anything in person until we hear for sure whether or not this couple is going to rent our town house. i'd rather not jump the gun and then have it all fall apart. i'm trying to be patient, but just want to know if we're moving in 3 months or not! come on, people! the clock is ticking!
