random updates!

Plans are now in full swing for our big move back to Virginia. Reservations are being made, emails sent, and details decided. And by all of this planning, I clearly mean: almost everything is still in the air. We have absolutely zero idea when my husband will come home from deployment. Zero! But we're taking it one day at a time and hoping that it all works out.

I'm not sure what I share on my blog VS what I share on Facebook. But we're moving back into base housing! They offered us a home that we couldn't turn down, and we are extremely excited about it. Of course, we've been dreaming about decorating and what we'll do with all our extra space. I'm mostly excited to decorate Adalyn's room and our new bathrooms. More on that later when I actually see the inside of our new home.

My daughter is now a pro at separation anxiety. The second I leave the room, she cries. No exaggeration. As a result, I tote her everywhere. Including sitting her on the bathroom rug while I pee. But she's so darn cute, and I know this is just a phase!

Adalyn can now say "baby," though she has no idea what the word actually means. She is always talking - her favorite word is "dada." She thinks self-feeding is the best thing on earth and now kind of hates when I try to feed her with a spoon. She now takes big girl baths and laughs and is growing up extremely too fast. She turns 8 months old in 4 days. I'm already planning her first birthday. Even down to the nitty gritty details, including food and decorations!

That also means that we're about 4 months away from our big family cruise. I am beyond excited. I often forget that we're even going on a vacation. I guess that's what happens when you book a cruise 10 months in advance!

I have nothing to blog about these days, and it makes me sad. Sure, I have my baby, and there are loads of things I could blog about regarding parenting. But I just can't. I don't know why, but I don't even think of blogging these days. Sad.

Oh, but I did come across these photos and now realize that Adalyn looks a lot like me. I'm, obviously, the baby in the photo! We have the same hair! And same skinny arms and legs!

and just two photos of Ad for good measure:

  1. Yay! Exciting about the new house and decorating! Love all those things! If you are looking for wall decorations and what wall canvas' is a great place. They run great specials and I got a 16x20 for $13.99 plus shipping!

    Ella was the same way about self feeding! She loved it and still rarely lets us feed her with a spoon. I'm so glad it's worked out great for you like it did for us!

    Love reading your blog and updates! :)
