Last Night At Home

It is quiet here as I pack the last of our home. David is sleeping, Greg is still in Chicago. There has been a sense of excitement here the last couple of days as I was anticipating our big move... about 10 minutes from where we live currently.
However, tonight as I rocked David to sleep a little sadness rushed in... this would be the last time I would rock him in that room. The one we planned so meticulously for him. I walk through our house among all of the boxes and see the last nine years of our lives packed.
This is the home Greg and I began decorating about 4 months before we married. This is where we came home together for the first time after our honeymoon. This was the home where we began our life as Mr. and Mrs. This home, saw great joy when we brought home our first baby after being here almost 8 years. We have planted trees and watched them grow, we have seen neighbors come and go, and now it is our turn, our family has grown and it is our turn to go. This home has protected us, provides wonderful memories of our beginning together, and this home has a new family to take our place.
Tonight with all of the excitement there is also a little sadness... this is the last night in our home.

Hippity Hoppity

Mommy was hoping for some great bunny pics this year... David was interested in everything except smiling for the camera.

While Mommy cleaned up a little these two found trouble. David decided to wear only a diaper and invited Bella onto Mommy and Daddy's bed.

New Words

We don't know where David learns some of the things that come out of his mouth. We are amazed almost daily.
While folding clothes down the hall from David's room Angie heard him playing in his bed over the monitor. She could not quite make out what he was saying. So, she walked into his room and asked him to repeat it. Upon hearing him she ran to get the camera and caught this on tape!

In case you could not make it out, David says, "Uh Oh Spaghetti O's... poopy" He was telling Mommy that he had a poopy diaper, what a little helper!

Spring in Central Texas

Last spring we missed the wild flower season because of our Texas drought. However, this winter we received quite a bit of rain and that has made for a beautiful wildflower season this spring.
We decided to take a break from our packing yesterday for David's first experience in our State Flower. We had a fun morning running through the fields about 10 minutes from our house.

Cupcake Monster

Yesterday, when David woke up Angie told him "Happy 22 month Birthday," just has she has every month for his entire life. Yesterday, David remembered those words, Happy Birthday and first thing out of his mouth was " Happy Birthday Cupcake please!" Well, by 4:00 in the afternoon he still had not forgotten. Mommy and David headed down the street to the bakery; Mommy could not hear that sweet voice ask so nicely for a cupcake anymore only to disappoint.

22 on 22

David turns 22 months old on this 22nd day of March.
As you can tell from our monthly photo shoot David is just as busy as ever. He sits still when he is buckled in, such as his car seat. However today Mommy had to pull over because it seems our clever little one figured out how to unbuckle his seat. He is very independent and is beginning to assert himself when things don't go according to David's plan.
We continue to be filled with joy every minute we get to spend with this bundle of energy and are so thankful for such a priceless gift.

All of the pictures were taken today, on his 22 month birthday, but you will notice a wardrobe change. A big mess was involved and clothes had to be changed.
