We're here...

... We moved this weekend. For some reason, it's just now hitting me. Maybe it's because Carlos blogged about it, but I just realized... we aren't at our house any more. We aren't going "home". I'm cool with it, just totally weirded out.

Besides the total craziness of moving, we have enjoyed a couple of walks, a new (to me) park, and a the heavenly-ness of a king size bed. I love being here, the move is going to be an adjustment, but I am loving the change. The girls are adjusting great. Farrah has started sleeping so well in the past week or two. And she's continued here. She's loving crawling around on the carpet. Bella played in her toy kitchen like all day long.

One thing that is cool is doing things with Bella and Farrah that I did growing up. It's simple things. But tonight I gave the girls a bath in my parents bath. Where I used to love taking a bath. I dried Bella's hair as she sat up on the sink. Where my mom spent hours and hours doing the same for me. (Especially the years I hated my curly hair and would beg her to straighten it - before flat irons :)) We took a bike ride/ walk up to the cul-de-sac. So many memories. And now I'm 30 with my own kids. Wow.

Anyways, this comes at a good time because my mom is having back surgery in September. So I hope to MAKE her rest - rest she needs for recovery. Please pray for a quick recovery for her - and little pain.

So many crazy feelings going on right now. I am totally excited but anxious about our next step. Feeling blessed to be here, but a crazy that we aren't going "home". But overall, feeling great about it!! It all happened so fast, I'm just now really processing it. :)

And... on a totally other note... Farrah has developed a HUGE FUN personality over the last two weeks. She is awesome! Look for pics next!!!

way to go on the move! And so funny what you wrote about Farrah's personality because I literally just in the last week have noticed that about Lindy! This age is just precious. They'll have fun playing together in weekday tomorrow. =)
