Ten Months

So, we missed nine months. Sorry Bud Bud. I'll make it up to you with these blurry ten month pics ;)

This month brought to you by the word "teething". 

Which leads to: sleepless nights and Momma's under eye bags. You have four teeth, with another four coming in.

Loves to army crawl across the floor speed racer style. 

Loves bath time.

Loves eating & bottles.

Loves getting Sissy's attention.

Hates teething.

Lincoln's nine month stats:

Height:29 inches (73%)
Weight: 19 lbs 8 oz (45%)

Zero // One // Two // Three // Four // Five // Six // Seven  // Eight

Now what?

So now do?

Well, we moved out of the house and into a three bedroom apartment in Spokane Valley. Our new house should close the middle of May so we will be here for a few months. 

Oh new house? 

Yeah, the offer we made on this house is the house we plan to make our forever house. Or at least our foreseeable future house. We have been back and forth in negotiations, had an inspection and well test and are now waiting on the rest of the VA appraisal to be done. T's to be dotted, I's to be crossed. 

I'll keep you posted. 

For the times they are a changin

We've sold and moved out of our first house. Such a bitter sweet event. 

This was the place that we brought two beautiful healthy babies home from the hospital. That sheltered us through storms. That helped us grow and learn each other. That made us a better stronger family.

We will forever be grateful to these 1,100 sq ft. They made us better people.  They made us homeowners. 

We're so excited for what the future holds, and I'm so glad you guys are along for the ride.

Another day, Another Farmhouse

Except this time we loaded up as a family to make the six hour round trip drive to view the house. Which as you can imagine meant a lot less Tom Petty jam sessions and a lot more "Mom, can we go home now?". Yeah it was a blast. 

We got to town a half hour early so we found a city park and let the girls 'shake out the crazies'.

The destination! A 1910 farmhouse on 10 acres.

The current *renters* are a bit what one might describe as "attached to their stuff" as in "they don't get rid of anything" anythiiing. Whatever. It made for an interesting walk though, and luckily we were able to look past all the stuff to see the potential in the house.

We loved it enough to make an offer, one with special concessions for debris removal and professional cleaning. So we'll see how that goes! 

The trip home seemed to go quickly, lots of naps, a little crying. But today confirmed that we do in fact have the best children in the world. They were all so good, all things considered.
