Random Pics

Just some random pictures I found on my flash card from the last few weeks. The first two are from today. Our neighbor brought over this t-shirt her son had outgrown. Taylor was so excited over her new "Sands Mustang" shirt!!

We let Cassie in the dining room the other day while Dustin watered the backyard so she wouldn't get really muddy. I thought she looked so cute with her head up on the step!
Mom and David came to visit our new house and rode on the motorcycle. I had to get a pic of Taylor on the bike with them. It cracks me up to see my mom on a motorcycle!! (sorry mom...it's just too funny).
Taylor playing with bath foam one night after we moved...

While packing, we found lots of things I forgot we had. Taylor came across this hat she wore as a newborn and put it back on. Then she put on the feather boa and jewelry and pushed her stroller all over the house. Silly girl!

Well, I don't have any pictures to share, but wanted to update everyone on our latest "happenings." We have officially moved and are settled in quite nicely! We moved last Monday (the 15th) and are pretty much all unpacked. I have a few things to hang up on the wall still, but we are pretty much settled. The move went awesome!! It has kept me very busy and I haven't had much time to think about how miserably pregnant I should feel (which has been nice). We had great help loading everything up in a large truck (thank you Dad, Sam & Diane and Cory). When we got to Ackerly on Monday morning, there was a group of high school football boys, the boys coach, the superintendent and a teacher to help us unload. I was amazed!! Then, for the first 3 days, we didn't have to cook or pay for a meal...so many people in the community provided us with food and desserts! My mom came up Monday afternoon and we unpacked probably 15 boxes while Dustin put all the beds together. I am so thankful she was able to come help!! We are overwhelmed by the welcome we received in this small community!

Taylor got to see her new house on Tuesday and LOVES it!! She thinks it is awesome that she lives next to the playground. She is also riding her tricycle at the tennis courts and has gotten VERY good lately. Not only is she pedaling well, but she is steering so good that she can weave in between the nets and turn really well. We cannot keep her indoors these days!! The light switches in this house are lower and she can reach them. She thinks that is pretty cool and mommy does, too. It sure helps if I am busy and she wants something in her room or the bathroom. (I know this will be even more helpful when Ryan gets here). She is constantly suprising us with words and sayings she picks up on. I put her stool in front of the sink today and told her she could stand on it to brush her teeth and she told me, "That will be cool." It's so funny to hear her say grown-up things! If she adjusts as well to Ryan as she did to the new house, things will be smooth sailing!!

Speaking of Ryan...things are still a go for July 6. I am actually feeling really good. He's dropped a bit, though I am still carrying him pretty high. I walked 7 laps at the track last night with one of the coaches wives (I'm hoping gravity will take affect). Like I said, I've been busy moving, so there hasn't been much time to feel bad for how huge I am!! I'm not really swelling at all...just enjoying this last 1 1/2 weeks of feeling him in my tummy. I really missed that once Taylor was born. Don't get me wrong, I'm really ready to have him and see him and snuggle him, but there is something about having that baby in your tummy that you miss. :-) Next post will probably be with pictures of our sweet new addition!!!
