We have had a lot going on this past month, what with moving and all that, momma got a little behind on posting about your second month of life little one.  It feels unreal sometimes to think that you've been with our family for that long.  Sometimes it feels like it was only yesterday that we were bringing you home from the hospital, but most of the time it feels like you've always been apart of us.  Does that make any sense?
We've got you all moved into the new house...the house we want to raise our family.  You and your sister will share a room, but you are still sleeping with mom and dad, until you're a little older.  You sleep really well (a tender mercy that all three of my babies have slept so well), about 6 hour stretches at night.  I can not thank you enough for letting me sleep.  It's probably what has kept me sane through all of the craziness of moving with three young children.
At your two month appointment, you were 9.1 lbs putting you in the 5% on the growth chart.  Not surprising as none your siblings were big either.  You had your first dose of shots, which made you miserable for about a day and a half, but then you settled right back into your rhythm.
My most favorite thing that you've learned to do this month, is smile.  It goes from a sweet little half smirk to a full fledged toothless grin.  It brightens my day, and makes my worries disappear.
You are loved beyond measure little one, and an absolute blessing in our life's!
Your sweet little smiles melt my heart!

.our first.

That little place on 26 La Vista Dr was our first home.  We bought it with the idea of it being a great started home that we intended on living in for five years.  It ended up being a bit longer then that.  It was a place where we grew up in our first years of marriage, and celebrated our first holidays together   It was where we brought our three babies home, a place that only Finn may have vague memories of.  We made lasting friendships with some of the best people we've ever had the privilege to know. And as much as I felt completely crowded in it at the end, it's still hard to leave our first.  A home with lots of memories and love!
So young and innocent with the keys to our first home...classic Roy.

Moving day!
I was super thrilled about moving into our very first home.

 It has been a good 7 years, and even though we won't miss living in a condo, we will miss our wonderful friends and neighbors.
