packing up..

Well we are just about ready to leave Florida. In just 2 days we start the drive north to Delaware. We are getting more excited as it draws closer.

Not sure if I shared this but Jack decided last week that we would be able to do the move ourselves. So instead of the military coming to pack up our belongings we have done it ourselves. Or should I say I have done it. I found out on Wednesday that we were going to do things ourselves. Jack rented a Uhaul and I have packed our entire house in just 5 days time.

Tomorrow we pick up the truck and load it. I have to clean out the fridge and vacumn the floors but other than that we are as ready as we can be. Jack plans to drive the uhaul and I will take the Prius.

Bentley is going on vacation for a week with our amazing babysitter. He is going to drive up our other car and Bentley and meet us in DC in a weeks time. We are quite excited about this.

So yeah the journey begins in 2 days. Wish us luck.

Hope all is well with everyone!!

4 Months

So Baby A is almost 4 months! Crazy huh! She will be 4 months old on the 24th.

We went to the doctor for her 4 month checkup. Little miss is according to her doctor "perfect". We couldn't agree more.

She is now 11 lbs and 7 ozs and 24 inches long. She is in the 10th percentile for weight and the 50th for height. I see lots of dresses in her future. Her pants don't exactly fit. They are too short. So dresses it is.

Daddy was not the best when she had to get shots. Baby A took it like a champ. Daddy on the other hand couldn't even watch. He doesn't like seeing A cry and of course she cried when she got her shots.

We are still in the process of getting the move organized. But I wanted to give a quick update on our little peanut.

Hope all is well with everyone!

10 on..

Ten on Tuesday!!

1. I have an amazing husband. Seriously. He is handling our move. Its enough to make me want to pull my hair out. He is doing it calmly and with such attention to detail. I <3 it!

2. Bentley is in for a rude awakening when we move. Hopefully our little crazy man likes cold.

3. Baby A is getting so big. She smiles and talks and rolls. She makes us smile so much.

4. Baby A also likes to talk at 4 am. Although we enjoy her talking 4 am is not exactly the best time.

5. I got Jack underarmour for Valentines Day. Not exactly romantic but useful. He got me the same thing. I love it. We may be geeks but thats okay.

6. Today is my parents 36th wedding anniversary. Crazy huh? Happy Anniversary to them.

7. We have entirely way to much stuff. Yeah for the military packing and moving it for us.

8. Yeah for owning a Prius. My trip north will be so much cheaper because of it.

9. Finding daycare for my child is proving to be difficult. I am not sure I trust just anyone. Ugh.

10. We are ready for our Delaware adventure! Lets hope Delaware is ready for us!!


I fully get that I stink at updating. I know this. But in my defense we have been pretty busy. But still I should have taken some time to update. I know this.

Anyway we have big news. That seems to be the trend with me. I don't blog for a bit and then come back with big news. Apparently that works for me.

Anyway I have been super busy because of this big news. See planning a move that is a 16 hour drive away takes time. Thats right, we are moving. To Delaware! Delawhat you may ask. Delaware. Crazy I know. What may you ask is in Delaware. The answer to that is that I am not yet sure. I know that Jack got orders to the air force base there. I know that my job is super amazing and doesn't care where I live so that works. But other than that we have no clue.

We are busy preparing for our move. I have an amazing husband that has handled most of it. I am working on preparing to move my office to another state. My counterpart at my job has decided to leave the company. This has increased my workload but thats okay. I have a super amazing boss who is supportive and helpful. She is doing a lot of my traveling for me. I am blessed to have this job and such a great boss.

So we still have a ton to do. But we have got some things handled. Just a small sampling of our list is:
Find a house - Done! Thankfully
Contact Moving companies - Done - Thank you military
Get a hitch for our truck - done
Rent a trailer - done
Decide what we are taking with us
Pack said stuff in the trailer
Buy warmer clothes for all of us
Try Bentley's coat on - if it doesn't fit we are going to need to work on that
Drive 16 hours with a 4 month old and a crazy Chihuahua. Should be fun.

So yeah that just a small sampling of the things we have to do. I did find a church and working on getting A's baptism arranged. She has a beautiful dress thanks to my sister.

Other than that we are working on getting stuff done and saying good bye for now to our friends.

Any moving advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hope all is well with everyone!
