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.

Please don't be sad. I pray every day that you'll come home soon. Have faith and you will. Until then we'll just keep driving down to visit you. Mom

Hey! So I've tried sending you a comment a couple times but Lola always seems to get fussy when I'm writing a message and it never gets finished. How are you doing? I know what you mean about how hard it is being away from family- especially now with a little one! My mom is in Kansas and my dad is in northern ohio. Luckily, we have paul's family four hours away in cincy. It's hard I only know one person here since we just moved here in September. I really miss my family and friends too. Selling a house can be a huge pain we had to sell our place in Boston before moving here and there are definitely a lot of obstacles, but at least you guys have the opportunity to move home! I will keep my fingers crossed for a quick sell.
I can't wait to see more pics of Brady I love that he is such a big boy and so cute! When you guys get back to cincy we are going to have to arrange a couple play dates.
question for you- I saw that Brady sleeps a long time- do you pump when he sleeps that long? I'm not supposed to let Lola sleep through the night until she is 15 lbs but I was wondering if I still have to pump... does it interfere with your milk supply?
Talk soon!
