one night we are at a hockey party and the next day we were moving!
we had been planning to move for a few months and then bam it just happened! i had nothing packed or anything planned because it happened so quick. so, needless to say, the past 2 weeks we packed everything, moved it all and unpacked everything. pretty much all on our own. my sister helped me with cullen and helped us move a load or two but otherwise we did everything. b is some super human, he lifted pretty much all of our furniture on his own!
view out our back porch beautiful pink sunset and a windmill...
btw, how in the world did my cullen turned ONE! my baby is no longer a baby, he's a toddler! he's been really clingy lately, i hold him a lot. he still wants to be rocked to sleep and he still sleeps in a pack n play. it's what works for us and i wouldn't change it.....or maybe i would, if he was ready! as for now, he's not and that's ok. our poor little guy just cut another tooth as well, that makes 8! he got another on the bottom. a great thing though, a few days after C turned one he instantly started eating more solid foods! his favorites right now are mixed veggies, veggie pasta and diced up potatoes. i can't believe how much he loves peas, it's so stinkin' cute watching him eat.
my sister turned 21 TODAY! so crazy!!! i feel extra old now ;) she is the best sister and best friend ever! i love that girl to pieces. if she hadn't been here the past few weeks to help out i'd be so lost! she has been a blessing when it comes to caring for cullen. she works a crazy shift at work, 5 in the morning until 11 so she is up every day by 3:30 but she is still willing to come over after work and help with cullen. i appreciate her so much.
i have been painting, putting loads of new toys together, organizing, shopping for some home decor, organizing, putting together furniture, planning cullen's first birthday party, organizing some more, doing laundry & CLEANING. with a larger house comes a lot more cleaning. i swear i hardly ever sit down, it's nice to stay busy but the days go by so quick and before i know it it's 11:00 at night and then midnight and by the time i lay my head down i'm so dead tired. unfortunately C still wakes 2 times a night, at least. i can't believe that even though he eats so much during the day and gets right around the recommended 16 ounces that he still wakes at night and wants a bottle. if i don't give him one he wakes up all the way and is then up for hours.
new table, my handy work put this together...
today i am patiently waiting for mr. ups so i can put together some furniture. that is my new expertise and painting. i told my bloggy bestie i was considering going to work for santa's workshop ;)
we now live 30 minutes from our families which kind of stinks but so far it has worked out just fine and b is only 5 minutes away from work so it's a great commute for him and he has already been home so much more!
i have 4 giveaways to post about, all of them are fabulous! i will hopefully be posting all 4 of them next week!
i will post pictures of the new house soon! like as soon as our living room doesn't look like i'm running a daycare! UPS man just left me 7 boxes. time to get my party started! hope all is well with everyone!!
