As for the little one, he is just soaking up life and learning more and more every day. He is so verbal (in a good way!) and is repeating anything and everything. As of now he is limited to about two syllable words. But we are working on putting together two word sentences ("big truck" "mama's shoes") He is very big into possession right now, so everything belongs to someone. It's very cool to see how he associates different objects with different people. Some of my favorite phrases include: Love you, Bless you (when someone sneezes), 'Scuse you/me, More please, and Thank you.
He is also currently (I believe) finishing up a growth spurt. The kid has been sleeping like a 17 year old boy! Two days in a row he woke up after 11 am. He has turned into quite the good sleeper (thank goodness!!) and is normally sleeping around 12 hours at night and a 2-3 hour nap during the day.
We have also started weekly swim lessons. He is progressing nicely and is now comfortable going to the instructor to sing songs. Still not a big fan of water in the face though. But we'll get there.
As far as the house goes...it was somewhat of a spur of the moment type of deal. The housing market was good, we found a house we liked, and we just went for it! Now, the whole "closing" process was probably the most drawn out process I have ever dealt with...but, I digress. Fortunately, with the help of my parents we successfully moved and are loving our new house and neighborhood. This is definitely a long term house, and we have so many "plans" and projects that we will stay busy!
So, I guess it wasn't THAT huge of a catch up, but in the interest of keeping you interested...here are some pictures :)
