We Moved

We moved last Friday.  From the very first house I ever bought, where we lived as newlyweds, and brought our babies home. It was tiring, sad, emotional, exciting, and crazy.

It's odd not to just put myself on auto pilot and drive back to our old house.  But now that we've had what I call semi regular nights in our new house, it's feeling more like home.  Cooking dinner, bathing the children, playing, laundry, etc. These are the things that make our new house feel like a home. Doing our normal family things. 

The kids are loving every single thing about the new house that we hoped they would.  They love their giant huge playroom, where they can roam freely with all their toys in one place, their table, and kitchen.  They love the freedom.

They love the new front yard and backyard and flatness all over, no longer struggling to climb up the mini mountain of a backyard that was our old house. They love their little cars or beep beeps as they call them running around the drive way.  They've had almost zero transition, effortlessly going to sleep and sleeping through the night in the evenings and taking fabulous naps.

It's been wonderful. I'm sure I've had more of a transition then them:) 

Needless to say, I loved being able to start up and burn a fire last night in our house. It was wonderful to sit by it, chat, and talk about how this was our new home and all the great memories we will make there.

February 2014

A few notes from this month

Ella is talking a TON. And I mean a TON. She tries to say everything. And now she says "love you" which sounds more like "nah nom" It's the sweetest thing ever because she answer your I love you back.

Of course with Ella talking more Franklin has decided to talk less. He leaves the end of words of so please sounds like peas.  It's pretty cute.  Occasionally we still catch him talking in his own secret language that he did when he was little the gibber jabber.  It's so innocent sounding.  He'll make himself laugh.

We have probably a 5x6 area right now of the living room sequestered with boxes.  The twins and Gibson the beagle are unsure of what is going on.  Gibson has curled up by either my side or hubby's each night bc I think he is worried during the middle night we will just pack up and leave him. It's sort of sad.

The twins are busy. They don't go down till nap till around 1:30pm - sometimes even later. They go to bed between  8 and 8:30pm.  We recently found out Ella naps much better if she has her baby - baby Clara in bed with her:) Pretty darn cute.

Other then that we are packing our lives up into boxes one day at a time. So excited to get into our new house - sometimes it still doesn't feel real.  I look through the photos over and over, how could that beautiful home really be mine?! Dream house.

God's good. Over and out.
