Here is what we have been up to as of late:
WE MOVED. That was a big pain in the tuckus. I thought it wouldn't be so bad because we had already gone through a lot of our stuff and put the extras in a storage unit. Boy was I wrong. I guess now I know how much stuff we have and that it is a pain and it does take a LOT OF WORK. Anyway, we are starting to adjust and feel more comfortable, but there are still a lot of boxes to unpack that we will eventually need. I am trying to do as Mary says, "One day at a time." As for the little people they have been loving the fact that we now have a backyard to play in and spend lots of time outside on their bikes or just playing. It is so nice.
Amber started preschool on the 8th. Of course that was moving day. So she left our old house and after spending time at Grandma Mary's after school came home and slept at our new rental house. She is loving school and wishes she could go everyday. Lately she has been wanting to help clean so I have been giving her little jobs to do around the house. She has really been helpful cleaning and being a great big sister. Sometime I forget that she is only 4; there are times she acts much older—or at least I think so. Here are some pictures from her first day (and some other fun photos).
Elle has been growing up so fast in the last couple of months, I swear. She looks so big and has started trying to do most things by herself. She has really wanted to start wearing panties but I wanted to wait until we were all moved and settled before starting that (Caralee, I am ready for you—just kidding). It is so funny that I keep thinking she is too small to be wanting to do everything but Amber was the same age. She has always just seemed smaller to me and I don't know why.
Elle has also started taking a dance class. Amber is always getting to do all sorts of things so I thought it was time to let Elle do something, too. She really enjoys it and has a good time. Here are a couple pictures of Elle.
Nathan is just too big already. I look at him and can't believe that he is already 8 months old. He is a little stubborn when it comes to wanting to crawl. He would just rather you carry him around everywhere. He is finally starting to scoot along a little and is getting up on his knees so I don't think it will be too much longer. He is a little eating machine. He wants to eat everything and anything pretty much. But you wouldn't know it to look at him because he is still as skinny as always. I have decided that my kids just like to have me worried. He is still very long though so maybe that makes up for it just a little. J gave him a buzz cut last week and I think he looks so darn handsome with his short hair. Here are a couple of pictures of Nathan to catch you up.
