We Survived

Well, we are officially in our new home! The move was excruciatingly difficult with 2 babies to take care of. I would not wish our past week on my worst enemy! I honestly don't have words for our experience. But, it is over! Well, the worst part is anyway. Now, we just have to find time to unpack everything and get settled. That's what nap times are for, right?

Quick updates on the babies: Jax is teething like crazy again, and therefore very clingy and fussy. He has become quite a momma's boy and prefers me over anyone...I have to admit, I think it's pretty sweet:). Addison has begun her bedtime routine in my desperate attempt to get her to sleep easier at night. She has a bath, then a book and then she nurses...then to the swing. She does have to cry some nights, others she just goes to sleep. Her crib should be up in the next week or so, and when she turns 4 months (in a couple of weeks), it will be time to get her sleep trained, in her crib. We intended on having her swing in her very own room in the new house to get her transitioned over, but that lasted exactly an hour the first night and I had her swing back in my room:). I wasn't ready for her to be so far away quite yet. Her separation from me will come soon enough, no need to rush things, right?

In other news, Jackson's birthdad is coming to see him and hang out with us this weekend. We are very excited, as he has not seen Jackson since he was a month old! What a gift for Jackson to be able to know his birthdad - he looks just like him and he will grow up seeing where he came from. We feel blessed that we can have this relationship for him.

And that is the news for now!


  1. Congrats it is finally over!!!! Moving is the worst.
    Enjoy your weekend!!!

  2. Wow I just yawned for you! You must be exhausted! Glad the move is over and you can start enjoying your new home with your family :)

  3. I actually feel stressed out for you! You're super mom, juggling two little kids and a MOVE! Not easy.

    I think it's fantastic that Jackson will get to know his birthparents. What a blessing you are all giving him to have so many people who love him.

  4. Congrats to you both on managing the move and two babies, I knew you would make it through. As time passes and the unpacking is over, you will all settle in to your great new home. Hope you all had a great weekend.
