Well, we've moved out of the Empress to The Oswego for one night, which was nice but then moved to Parkside Victoria for a week which was much nicer and larger. Since being there Aubrey has learned how to climb up the highchair and get in herself. She also managed to climb out of her crib and onto our bed which was too close, I'm not sure what's next for her to climb. Now we are back at the Empress, hopefully permanently until we move. Things are definately in limbo with Jared's VISA. The lawyers are tracking down some number that they need to resubmit the paperwork (again) and they are direct contact with the head supervisor at the Customs office, so we're not sure if that means it will take another 15 days from the re-submit date or if they're bypassing some people to demand action. We might be here for Thanksgiving, Aubrey's birthday and maybe even Halloween at this rate. I asked Jared at what point they'd kick us out of the hotel and he said he asked and they said not to worry about it. Basically Seattle is paying Jared's wages doing the job he would be doing there, so the only cost the hotel here is incurring is the cost of our food which we've been pretty respectful of only ordering what we need. So we should be good here for a little while longer.
I'll post some photos of our place at Parkside next post.
