Alive and Kicking!

I just wanted to take a second to thank everyone for keeping us in their thoughts and prayers over the last couple of weeks!

We are trying to get the first level of our new home livable and still are living out of boxes and eating picnic style on our beautiful wood floors that my sexy hubby just finished installing! Hehe I'm so happy to be back online to pay some bills and see how everyone is doing, but I have to admit, I really enjoyed the cyber break. It's amazing how much time this sucks out of our days.

Morgan is getting big, I can't believe he is now over a month old, where has the time gone. He has been very colic-y but we just got some new medicine yesterday and I am already seeing a huge change in his attitude and pain level, so hopefully my possessed child will get his voice back soon and will stop screaming. JK, but it really does hurt me to see him in so much pain, I'm hoping this phase will be ending and he can rest.

Grant is loving his park down the block, likes his new yard, big boy bed, and helping daddy paint, mud, and fix things. So many adjustments at once, but he has been a big boy and we haven't had any big problems, (thank goodness for living on the road for so long......this craziness just seems normal to him).

Tom is getting settleind in with residency and tonight is his first night on call, we will see how I do. The residents are great and all the husbands are very friendly. I am the only wife besides a much older couple than all the rest of us, so it's kinda weird that it's me and some stay at home (can't find employment) husbands. Only one other resident has a little boy so we are the only ones with kids besides them too, guess we are weird! That's OK.

I am really looking forward to getting to know more people around the city and get involved in some clubs and organizations, but that will come in time. After the house is put together more it will just be nice to sit and enjoy each other. I am slowing down on painting and other things on the house as I really want to enjoy this season with Morgan and Grant and don't want to look back and have no memories of our new little guy....materialistic things can wait for some other day.
I will be reading up on your blogs to see what I've missed lately, can't wait to hear from all of you! Take care!


  1. There you are! Glad to hear that the adjustment, thus far, is going well (I think I want to see pics of these beautiful new wood floors). It's definitely a crazy time--moving with a newborn and toddler...but it will all settle down with time. *wink*

    I'm also so glad to hear that Grant's transition to "big brother" is going so smoothly. You just never know how a new baby is going to disrupt the "flow".

    Morgan is so handsome...what great pictures...thanks for sharing! Praying that his tummy gets to feeling better soon.

  2. Glad you are getting settled - crazy isn't it! Addison has been quite colicky (spelling?) as well. Makes for really hard times. We'll be praying for you!

  3. Look at him. What a sweet baby boy. How is residency going?
