64.






We made it to Houston! It's been nearly two weeks and I finally feel like we're adjusting. It's been pretty rough. For me, Evie and BigBoy(you don't wanna know)! But we're at a good place now.

 Evie is so happy and finally on a good schedule. She has lots of friends out here and is having so much fun. She has gotten so independent and seems so mature. She's hilarious. Every thing she does is noteworthy to me. She keeps me entertained all day and I often look at her and think, "You just couldn't get any cuter." Like today, when we were taking these pictures and she picked a flower and put the petals in the trunk of her trike. Or how she found some toy animals that we brought along, that she has never played with before and every day she drags out the trash can(with a lid) and sets them on top, like it's a stage. She is really loving those things right now. She knows all the sounds they make. She's my little buddy and I adore her. She has her naughty moments though. (Just ask Jaycee.) 

Boyd has been doing awesome. He's selling his heart out. We're very impressed with his hard work. (Always are...)

The apartment has it's pros and cons. I've been trying to make it as homey as possible since this is the only home we have now. It feels weird. Not quite like my home. But I'll post some pictures of the place soon.

We miss our friends and family but are so happy to have the ones we have here. (Including Mandi and her family this year!)

The next 5 months are going to be an adventure! And we're going to make the most of it.

You are so brave and full of faith! Those were my first thoughts upon reading your post. From someone who has moved many times, I feel your stress and admire your strength. Make lemonade out of lemons! It's much easier than being blue.

Evie is so grown-up and darling! Loving her hair-do!

I didn't know you were going there for 5 months! How exciting, but I am sure it is hard. You're a tough girl and you'll do great. You always make the most out of every situation, so I have no doubt that you'll have the best summer together as a little family.

When did Evie become a big girl? Riding a trike? Doesn't it seem like we were just posting photos from the hospital after we had these little babies? I love her. We owe her a love note soon.

P.S. Sorry my dad never got around to getting the headboard piece. If I remember correctly, the days that he was finally going to have free were the days you were at Disney Land. We'll plan another pick-up for it in September or whenever you'll be back. :)

Good luck with everything! The first month is always the hardest. You will finally be adjusted and then it will be time to move. That's how I kind of feel. Dec. will come very fast for us!!

I'm a lurker, I hope you don't mind. I just stumbled upon your blog via Anglea Hardison's blog and I had to say hi. Your little girl is adorable. Good luck with all the adjustments. Moving is SO hard.
