Moved my BLOG

So, for those of you who read my blog (if anyone) I have decided to move to a new one. Well, at least for now. We'll see if it's any better.

Hope to see you soon.

We're moving...For reals

So, everything is lining up. We just signed off our condo yesterday and will be moving tomorrow morning. Our new home is done minus a few little things the super needs to work on. We passed underwriting, so we are on our way to closing on this new home on July 5th. We are really excited.
This move is bittersweet. I am sad to leave our condo and the memories and work we put into it, but excited for our new home and the memories and work we will put into it. I am excited for more space, a washer and dryer (no sharing, having my detergent stolen, or losing quarters to these things), a backyard for Sydney to play in, a garage for Josh to work in, and a bigger kitchen (I am excited to learn how to cook). We are lucky. Lots of exciting things. Well, I better get back to packing.

Here's a photo of Sydney trying out the sliding door in our new house.

So, we had our walk through of our house yesterday. It felt so much more real. Maybe we will get this house after all. Both Josh and I were so giddy yesterday. I spent several last night looking up paint colors and trying to coordinate everything. I still am not certain on anything yet. Things are progressing with the sale of our condo. I want to find out if things are solid by the end of this week though. I am not going to pack everything up only to find out we aren't moving. If this loan falls through we will sure be dissapointed and man that would be some bad luck. Anyway, we are hopeful and very excited. There are some good changes coming ahead.

Last week I took Sydney to the doctor because she has had this cough for several weeks and she needed a check up anyway. Luckily she didn't need shots, but the way she acted there, you'd have thought she got shots. I knew I was in trouble when the nurse asked me to lay her down on the bed so he could take her measurements and she flipped out. The other nurse came in and she was so nice and Sydney was so terrified of her. She cried and wouldn't hold still the whole time. So, we bought Sydney a doctor's kit to get her used to the tools. Hopefully that will alleviate some of her fears of the doctor. I'm pretty sure this fear stemmed from the last appointment when she got 5 shots. That was awful.

I have been playing in Photoshop with some photos of Sydney. She sure is a sweetie lately. Here are some cute ones of her and her daddy. She loves being outside, she's defintely not like her mommy in that respect. We got this bubble blower and she loves it, so do the dogs. While we were at Josh's parent's house, we showed Sydney Shauna's turtles and she loved them. She kept wanting to touch them. I was afraid she'd fall and crush them, but she was pretty careful. She is definitely an animal lover too.

I can't believe how old she is getting. And smart too. I will probably start working on teaching her the ABC's. She is starting to learn some numbers and she knows several colors as well. Little smartie. Josh thinks we should teach the Presidents. :) I don't even know all of the presidents. :0 She also has some cute quirks. She crosses her legs a lot, expecially when she's drinking her bottle. She just started really getting into coloring. She found a lid to a box and colored the life out of it. She also likes to hold our hands. Whenever we go in the car she has to hold both of our hands, regardless if we are driving or not. She is still pretty shy around strangers, but occassionally she will forget about being shy and become totally goofy around people. She warms up to her grandparents pretty quickly. She especially loves her Uncle Devin and I think he really likes her. She sure is a special kid. I love her more and more.

I like this shot. It looks like they are carrying on a conversation.

Sydney loves giving kisses.

Classic belly laugh. I can hear her laughing just by looking at this photo.

Ball! Ball! Ball! She is obsessed.

Here's the little guy. Sydney's newest pet.

I was kind of nervous the turtle would try and bite her finger, but he didn't. He really like Sydney.

So, Marie (my sister) and Brian welcomed their new baby boy on Sunday, June 10th.

He was 8 lbs 8 oz and 22 inches long.
His name is Aiden (not sure how to spell it yet).
He looks like Marie.
He looks so small compared to Sydney.
He is a quiet baby.
He is the cutest baby I have seen for a long time.


Sydney was not happy to see mommy holding another baby. Let me just say that makes me sad, but I am sure she will be fine WHEN I have another one.

Josh, can I get this?

Love Keith Urban

So, if Josh sees this post he will totally be jealous, but we just went to a Keith Urban concert last night and it was so good. It is definitely one of the top favorite concerts I've been to. He is such a good singer and I like when they sing how they sound on their cds. There's nothing worse than having a favorite artist and then hearing them in real life and they suck. He put on a great show. He played every song I wanted him to. It was definitely a toe tappin, feet stompin, hand clappin show. He seems like a nice guy and very down to earth. My favorite part was after they exited and everyone was just screaming for him to come back on stage and when he did he got all choked up. He must have been so overwhelmed.

Josh and I had a great time.
