We finally closed on our house late Wednesday and have been busy moving ever since, hence the huge delay in posting. We have gotten so much done, but still have so much more to do. The kitchen is the most completed room in the house. We are impatiently waiting on our new living room furniture, our new bedroom furniture and Brody's dresser/changing table to arrive. Once we get these pieces in which will be delivered sometime between the 1st and the 17th, we can being placing the rest of our decorations. We do have a few items on the walls, but not many. The house is already warm and "homey" but I think it will feel even more so once more decorations are placed around the house. It's hard finding new homes for the decorations from the old house. We still need to get a dining set and furniture for the upstairs room, but I am going to finish the other rooms before tackling those two. Gabe and I had our master painted the other day and it looks great! We have been looking for someone to paint polka dots on Brody's walls, but not one is committing, so we have decided to do it ourselves...yikes! I think it will look good, just hope I don't screw it up. Pics to come later...

Good Night!

My friend Amber has this glow worm type toy, except it is a sea horse that plays soothing music. She has been talking about it for weeks now, and I finally saw it last night. I was able to hear the music and now I am obsessed with it and have to go get it tomorrow for Brody! I think it will be his new BFF.
PS- I do not know this baby! It was the only pic I could find of this super cute product!

Left Handed?

Brody seems to be favoring his left hand a little bit. It will be interesting to see if he turns out to be left handed. Can you tell so early on? Does it matter when they are so young?

I guess we will find out...

3 Months!

Baby Brody was 3 months yesterday and we couldn't love him more. Here is my new fav pic of him.
All about Brody:
~ He is grabbing things
~ He is reaching for things
~ He only fusses when he is hungry, and then he gets angry! ;)
~ He has been sleeping through the night most of his short life
~ He is "talking" all the time
~ His smile is to die for!
~ He is working on his laugh
~ He is bashful at times, which again is adorable.
~ He is beginning to entertain him self
~ He LOVES to be outside!
~ His paci or his fingers/fist is in his mouth at all times
~ He is able to roll over from tummy to back with ease
~ He is practicing rolling from back to tummy
~ His favorite songs are the ABC song and The Itsy Bitsy Spider
~ He has the biggest blue eyes
~ He has the BEST baby hair of all time!

Wow, I could go on but I must have some self control! He is the sweetest baby and I am beyond thrilled to have him in my life. I only hope he knows how much he is loved.

Happy Birthday Gabe!

Happy Birthday to my amazing husband. Gabe is celebrating his 27th birthday today and I couldn't be happier to be spending it with him and Brody.
We have had a stressful week, and hope it will have a happy ending here in a few days. Gabe and I have had delay after delay after delay. My goodness we are super anxious to get in there, with the anticipation killing us...

Little Miss Teagan should be entering this world tomorrow or Wednesday! I know mommy and daddy (Amber and Adam) are ready to meet their little girl and see what she looks like. Every mommy- and daddy-to-be feel the same way, I know we did! Especially without those 3-D and 4-D sonograms! It seemed so far away and I cannot believe she is almost here...crazy!

Bad News Bears

We are not closing on the house today! :(
Someone made a mistake on the option addendum therefore delaying our move until Thursday! Gabe had worked so hard to have all the deliveries and installs scheduled for today/tomorrow and at 5 o'clock last night had to call everybody and reschedule. Also, there is 30% chance of rain Thursday and Friday while today (the original moving day) is beautiful! Cross your fingers that this will be the one and only hiccup!

The bright side to this is that I have a couple more days to finish packing everything at mom and Ron's. It is amazing everything we packed into their upstairs area! I forgot we had so much stuff, now plus all the wonderful things we have for Brody!

Time for a break

Wow have we been busy!! Time for a break from packing and time to blog! I forget how busy teachers are at the end of the year! It has been crazy nuts. I am officially done teaching for this year. A very bittersweet thing. It has been a hard year, but I got great experience and I worked with an incredible team. There were many things I liked about my school and very few things I did not, which I believe is a school that is hard to come by. The staff there is absolutely amazing and anyone who works there is lucky. We were named Exemplary again which is super. My personal classes TAKS scores were great, much better than I thought...I must say I am proud. I moved out of my classroom yesterday and am excited to spend every day with Brody. Please let me know if you know of an open position in McK, Frisco, Allen, Prosper, etc.
We are busy bees packing it up. And Gabe has been in Vegas since Thursday, leaving me to single parent it for 4 days. Well, kind of anyway... mostly at night. Mom and Ron are the best! I am going to miss their help! We are closing/moving on Tuesday. It has seemed so far away for so long and now it is finally here. Can you please pinch me! I still don't believe we are moving again! I have the most patient hubby for living with mom and Ron since October. It takes a special person to put up with in-laws for that long of a time.
Brody is growing and developing more and more each day. He rolls over from tummy to back with ease and rolled from back to tummy today! Mom read that this normally happens at 4 months and my little guys isn't even 3 months yet. I am loving his smile, it is the best! Especially in the mornings when he is waking up. He will get to sleep in his big boy room and crib come Tuesday! What a change I am going to have to adjust to.

Here is my man sitting in his Bumbo (thanks Carli!)
