We're in!

We just moved into our new house. The move went as smooth as it could and surprisingly everything is in place and out of boxes and organized after 1 week. Kai is having a hard time with the move and new big boy bed. He says he wants the old house and crib back. There is a lot more room to run around and more storage space. I will post pictures of the inside of the house soon. Meanwhile, here is a cute video of Kai for those of you who haven't seen him in awhile. He will be 3 years old in September. We are going to be in OC July 10-26th so mark your calendar.

I love you too

Kai has really been tugging at my nerves. I think he is the worst listener out of all his friends. He is very stubborn and strong willed. I'll ask him to come here and he will look at me and go the other way. It's frustrating! However when I was putting him to bed for his nap today I told him "mommy loves you" as I do everyday and today he said "I love you too". All my frustrations dropped and now I can't wipe that smile off my face. He is learning his independence and with that independence comes understanding.

Spring is in the air...

After the long winter months it is finally warming up! Don't get me wrong it can still be in the 30's but we've had a few days in the 70's and it's nice. It rains alot here. In 7 days there will be about 4 of them rainy.

We have set a moving date of May 17th. We have had to buy cabinets, a mailbox, hose, etc. for this new house. There is no landscaping and the grass is dead so we have some outdoor maintenance to complete as well. Luckily this is garage sale town and everyone participates in having one or shopping at one! It has now become my hobby for wednesday mornings. Kai likes to come too. He likes to point at things and say "this is nice" or "mommy would like that". We are having a garage sale at the new house this Friday with 9 other moms. I think it will be good to meet my new neighbors this way and hopefully make some extra cash.

Devin likes his job but there has been some struggles. Please keep us in prayer with how best to handle all these situations. I'm also feeling very restless as there is no place to take Kai to get out his energy when it rains. They have all outdoor parks and no nightlife. We are very limited here. Plus there is no frozen yogurt! That's my favorite food! They don't really believe in healthy foods around here.

The kids: Kai is starting to eat more foods and be less picky. He is on his way to potty training but still wears diapers and underwear. I think it is going to be a long process. Nash is cutting his first tooth on the bottom right. I'm looking forward to his new smile when both bottom teeth are fully in. He is a cranky teether though so that hasn't been easy.

We miss you all!
