Mommy - Boy date!

On Friday the boys and I joined Auntie Nicole and Cousin Candon for a movie theater date at Monster's University. It was a hilarious movie and so cute! The boys enjoyed it, once it started, we thought there would be a long line, so we arrived extra early... Turns out there was not a line and we ended up having to kill time in the theater instead. Once the movie started it went great. It was Porter's first time at the movie theater and he is already plotting his next go around, he doesn't care what movie we see, he is plotting the snacks he wants! We will be putting this on our calendar's to do more often, it was a great evening... Thanks again for joining us Coley and Candon!

Looking very cool in their shades!

I blinked and 18 months flew by...

I went shopping for some more summer jammies for Adalyn today, and I found myself in the "toddler" section of Herberger's searching for 2T pajama's!!!! Yes 2T, my baby is less then a baby and more of independent, career chasing, boy crazy women! She is filled with so much life; she is surely our easiest child yet, but she has so much spunk (Ben calls it drama and usually refers to her as the DIVA)... Lately it is blowing my mind as she starts to repeat everything and talks our ears off. She will say every single word that we say, except Porter... She calls Porter Bray, we correct her every time, but she still insists on Bray. She calls Braylon, just that Braylon. I think she is a little confused, especially because 90% of the time we call Porter, Maxie. We have heard her say Porter 3 times, but everything else she says and she says it very clearly. I wish I could rewind the time, because I miss my chubby check, rolly polly little girl! I have captured these few pictures over the weekend and thought they were worth sharing :)
She didn't want to sit with Mommy and Grandma at the Softball game last Tuesday night... She wanted to sit all by herself!

She really loves her Giraffe and sippy cup! Walking around the yard enjoying being left alone.

She looks 15 years old in this picture... No longer my baby, she sure is adorable though! One of my favorite pictures.

She even insists on sitting at the table, she kneels at the table the entire time we eat and she does such a good job. Ben said he isn't ready for this yet, but I can't keep her sitting nice in her highchair, so it might be the perfect time!
I am so excited for the women this little girl is going to become, but I would be okay if time just slowed down a lot first.

Life Happenings...

Well life has been extremely busy for the past month in a half! It is hard to believe that it is the last week of June already... I feel like it should be the last week of May, I feel a little cheated out of Summer this year! The reason for us being so busy, is because we are MOVING!!!! We have been searching for a home that suited or needs... and wants, there are always wants, for over a year now. We finally found the perfect home; it has every need and a lot of our wants all wrapped into one fabulous location! There were a lot of steps to get this house, and everything feel perfectly (not really perfectly, nothing happens perfectly; but I am going to pretend) into place. We will be moving in less then 3 weeks, 17 days to be exact! We will be closing the week that Ben is in DC, we close on a Friday and he gets back late that Friday; which translates to me having to pack everything and move everything with three children by myself (not really by myself, our families would be more than willing to help; but I don't want to burden them with our move), so Ben and I have been busy moving what we can to our rental property garage (which just so happened to open up last weekend, see perfect...), before he is gone for a week. We spent the weekend moving things, lots of things, out of the house, I want as little in the house as we can manage to get by with. The less I have to move alone the better; because although I have 17 days before we actually are out of our house, with Ben gone for 5 days, it is like we have 12 days.
We are so excited about the new house and all of the wonderfulness it is going to bring to us and our family! I already dream of Christmas, Prom's, and Graduation's in this house. Along with the few minor things to make it our own (Ben made me promise NO projects until Winter)... :)
First load to the Duplex Garage...

Dreaming of Paint colors... This is when Ben told me NO projects, not even paint until Winter...

Sold Sign at our new house.... This was a VERY exciting day!

Sold sign at our house! Adalyn loves to walk to the front yard and touch my picture and say MOMMY!

Our empty Living room!

Hauling the guest bed to the garage.

Daddy even hauled the Four Wheeler to the Garage. I told him all of our spare time was for packing and moving, not riding the 4 wheeler...
Stay tuned, we will definitely be posting pictures as soon as we have the keys!!!
