Hello Houston!

Well, we have arrived in Houston! G & J made their cross country car trip here and met E and I at the airport on Monday. You couldn't of asked for a better baby on the plane... I was sooo relieved that E did so well!

Tuesday we had the final walk through with the builder of the house. Then we closed that afternoon!

Wednesday was move in day. We were completely moved in by 2pm... our movers were great and they both were in their 60's and were some strong, fast men, let me tell ya!! Our new fang-dangle fridge and front loading washer and dryers arrived during that time too! Then with G's parents here we started unpacking! What a feat!

Thursday and Friday... more unpacking, putting away, etc, etc, and repeat :)

Saturday was a very rainy and stormy day. I did make my first trip to the grocery store... it was great to get to shop at a Krogers again!

Sunday we did a lot of little stuff that seemed to take all day! We did go mattress and furniture shopping for a bit in the afternoon. Thank goodness for online shopping... shopping in person with a 2 yr old and a 4 mth old is not much fun for anyone! ha!

Monday we finally got TV, phone, and internet. The latter being a lifesaver for me... you don't realize how much you do online until you don't have it anymore! It felt good to get "wired" again, LOL!

Today I'm going to try to have a somewhat normal day with minimal unpacking (we're almost done) and stuff. Gonna just focus on letting the boys play and try to get in a Target trip. They're one of the few places that sell my favorite planet friendly non toxic cleaning supplies... Method! Gotta get the Omop with all this tile!!

The boys are doing great! Every day J seems to get older and taller too! He still loves playing with his trucks... but his new thing is planes... loves planes! Gets a tad angry (with the emotion of a 2 yr old) when he sees planes in the sky and can't have the key to them to fly himself. Or when his toy plane won't fly in the sky like the ones he sees. Those times I'm left scratching my head... how to explain the why/how to a 2 yr old and not just say "Because, that's why".

E is a growing boy as well! He turned 4 mths last Thursday and is almost 18 lbs! We got the exersaucer out and he's loving playing with that! Right now he WAS napping in his swing... but just woke up and is trying to sit up in it! So better go!

P.S. Please ignore the mound of books and toys in the background of J's pic. We're getting a big storage system from Ikea for it all. Can't wait!

Holy Cow! 18 lbs??? Jack is 18lbs 10 oz at almost 10 months. Too cute!

You are so organized to be where you are in such a short period of time! Good Job. It is great to see pictures of J & E.

Much Love,
