As you can tell, blogging has taken the back burner lately! The last month has been pretty busy for us. We were getting the house ready to put on the market and then the good Lord blessed us with multiple offers a few days later. We are VERY thankful our house sold so quickly!
We have also made multiple trips to Charlotte and Winston over the last several weeks. Lots of house hunting, grandparent and friend time.
We are trying to finish packing our house but it is much more challenging this time around with an almost 3 month old. The last few days have been spent packing, eating at our favorite restaurants and getting in as much friend time as possible!

Poor little Anderson has a lot of change coming his way...leaving our house in TN, moving into a friends lake house for who knows how long and mommy going back to work. Let's hope he is much more flexible than me!

With all that to say, our house and lives are a little crazy and disorganized right now. I have a lot of blog catch up to do very soon!

Still a happy baby among the craziness

I will become a much more regular blogger after the move...hopefully!

2 Months

Happy 2 Months, Anderson!
It's been a busy month for you...travels, new faces, lots of "firsts", more sleep and a much happier momma.

We went to the doctor yesterday morning and you got your first vaccines.  The first one was oral and you gulped it down, then came the 3 shots.  Your chubby face turned bright red and you started screaming like I have never heard before.  You were so pitiful.  Once the shots were over, I scooped you in my arms and you stopped crying.  I am sure the shots hurt (and you were a little shocked) but I think you added a little drama into those screams.  You might not have my looks, but you sure do have some of my personality. 
I loved you the minute you were born, but my love for you has really grown over the past month.  You are sleeping great at night and I really appreciate that.  Every time you smile and giggle, my heart melts.  The next month is going to be really busy for us, so hope you are ready for it!
