Moving on up

...to a queen size bed that is! Ellery went from a toddler bed with a crib mattress to this huge queen bed that my mom and I fell in love with on a shopping trip in Austin! She loves her bed and is probably so relieved to not be hitting rails everytime she tosses and turns, which is often. She actually rolled off this bed once already, which just proves what a wild and crazy sleeper she is!

A spring in his step

We are still alive! Tired, but still alive! We finally have all of the boxes unpacked (thanks to a lot of help), and I am actually sitting down at my computer for the first time in almost two weeks.

Everyone seems to be really loving and adjusting well to the new house and new rooms. Ellery is exploring her new surroundings and Price must have whip-lash from constantly watching all of the "workers" going in and out of the house. Colby is in doggy heaven with a new and upgraded backyard. He seriously looks like he is skipping through the grass, chasing butterflies and squirrels. He really does seem to have a new spring in his step.

What a blessing.

Packing Up

Stay tuned...we are MOVING on Monday. I am trying my hardest to purge the house of all it's junk...room by room...and it's taking up most of my nights. Back to blogging soon.


A year ago today...it will be bittersweet leaving our first home.

Race for the Cure 2009





Above pictures by Ellery...and then the camera went dead! I managed to get one of the actual race.



We spent the morning with thousands of other people "racing" for a cure for breast cancer. This year was extra special for our family as we walked to support Aunt Meredith, who will begin her chemo treatments this week. We know that next year we will be walking it again with her wearing the "survivor" pink shirt. What a day of celebration that will be!

Ba!

Price said his first real "ba" today! How exciting! See, he's very vocal and holds conversations with screams, grunts, and ga's, but not much else. He is really trying to figure this speaking thing out. Our speech therapist said it is most likely a motor planning issue. He will watch us speak and you can see the wheels turning in his head, but he has a difficult time mimicking.

For about a week he has been putting his lips together but not saying anything while doing it. While we were in speech today, a "ba" slipped out loud and clear. I was so excited, and I could see the excitement in his eyes as well. I hope I hear some more sometime soon. A "ma" would be really great too!

We WILL get there!
