Look Who's 3 Months Old!

My little lumberjack. I can't believe how quickly time has gone by. I remember that first week home when things were so difficult wishing that he were this age. Now here he is and I'm eagerly anticipating him turning 6 months and starting solids and (hopefully) starting to crawl and being able to sit unassisted. It makes me think how I really need to slow down and enjoy him. I still get frustrated though because I feel like he still can't do much. Rotating him between his swing, bouncy seat, and activity mat is starting to get old. We also do a lot of tummy time and read him books but he gets bored easily with those as well. I'm sure this next month will bring lots of changes and growth.

I have to admit that I've been feeling very down these past few days. I am really missing Ohio and our family and friends up there.  We were so excited on Saturday because we thought we were finally going to have a showing for our house. We spent the entire afternoon cleaning and then left during the supposed "showing" time, only to return home to a message on our machine letting us know it was cancelled. I was so disappointed. I feel like we're stuck and are never going to make it back. I'm really wishing we had never bought this house right now. It is so hard to be down here without much help and not many people to talk to and keep me going through the day. Please pray for us that we will be able to sell our house quickly.

Mr. President

Brady received his White House Greeting a few days ago and I finally got around to scanning it into the computer, so I thought I would share it with you. We have another congratulatory note that we received in 2004 for our wedding. I hope Obama's administration continues doing this because I think it's really neat. I'd love to get one for each child that we have.

In other news Brady slept a whopping 10 hours and 45 min last night before waking me up, completely refreshed, at 6:45 this morning. It was glorious! Then to top it off he even took 2 naps this afternoon. One for and hour and another one for 2 hours! He is normally a horrible napper, so this was wonderful. 

Hope everyone has a good evening!

Merry Late Christmas and Happy New Year! Sorry, it has taken forever to write a new post. Things just don't seem to get done as quickly as they used to! I hope everyone's holidays were as good as ours. My entire family came down to visit for Christmas and we had a wonderful time. Brady and Macy were finally able to meet (although I'm pretty sure neither of them cared). I can't wait till Brady is Macy's age. She is so interactive and can do so many things on her own. It's crazy to think about how different Brady will be in just a few more months. By the way, he is officially a beast. We took him to the doctor this past Tuesday and at 2.5 months he is a whopping 17 lbs 5 oz and 27 inches long! He is completely off the charts! Macy is 9 months old and 20 lbs. He's almost her size!

I decided not to write any resolutions this year, mainly because I always tend to forget them by February. I can basically summarize though and say I really want to focus on being a great wife, mom & homemaker. That pretty much encompasses everything that I could want to accomplish. 

I know I should have more to write about since I haven't posted in forever, but my mind is totally blank right now. I have a severe case of the brain farts. I'm sure I will probably think of 10 other things to write about tonight and be back on here with another post though. Stay tuned....
