New Digs

We've been on the hunt for a new house since December.  It's been a long time coming, but we finally closed on our new (to us) house this week.  I've been cleaning and painting non-stop for the past two days and I'm too tired to black out the address on the front of the house, so instead I'll just post a few pics of the inside.  The house doesn't need a lot of work, but I've got big ideas (thank you Pinterest) and so far I'm loving how it's turning out!  Ok, here are a few before pics: 

Ok, I hope you enjoyed the preview.  :)  I'll post more pictures along the way as we have fun making our house a home.

I'll be back.

It's been the busiest summer in the history of all summers so posts have been sparse.  But don't worry, come fall, I'll update more often.  And when I'm done with school in about 6 months, things are gonna get crazy.  ;)  In the meantime, here's a picture of some of the fun we've been having:
"Can I have S'more please?"

I don't know how it's possible, but you are only a month away from being a two-year-old!!  In the past month, we have celebrated the day that Mama got to hold you for the very first time and in the next month, we will celebrate the day Daddy met you and the day you officially became ours.  You continue to grow and change and we are so incredibly thankful for the gift that you are!

Here's what you're up to these days:

Your favorite word is "Up", well actually it's more like "Uuuuuuuuuuuu-p" and it's the cutest thing in the world (Yep, I still think everything you do is the cutest thing in the world)!

You are about 16 lbs and we're still letting you gain at your own pace and not worrying about it.

You can show us your ears and your nose; and you realized your nose has two holes in it that are the perfect size for your fingers.  ;)

You have a favorite blanket that you like to snuggle when you are falling asleep.  I don't know why, but this makes my heart so happy.  Seriously, I die.

Your eye dr. said the surgery went great and your eyes are as good as new!!

You love to eat (what we call) cheesy poofs...kinda like a healthier version of cheese puffs.

You learned how to climb stairs...Watch Out!!

You think it's funny to pretend to yawn, and then it makes you yawn for real.  Pretty. Darn. Cute.

Sometimes, when it's really quiet, out of nowhere you yell "Yeah" as loud as you can.  :)

You have a whole mouth-full of teeth, maybe 12 or so.  I would count, but I'd like to keep my fingers. ;)

Perfect, sweet, and precious boy, we love you more than words can express!!
