6 months!!

Andrew is 6 months old today!!  Wow 6 months of changing two sets of diapers, wiping 2 noses, breastfeeding, and getting up around 2am every night.  There are days that just drag on and on and I wonder if they will ever end.  Then there are moments like right now when I look back and think where did the last 6 months go.  Andrew can now sit up by himself and get up on all fours and rock back and forth.  He is so close to just taking off.  Andrew is the sweetest, easiest baby.  He is such a cuddle bunny.  I can't wait to show him and Aaron off on our next trip to Kentucky!!  Andrew thinks Aaron is so funny.  Everytime he sees Aaron he just jumps and grabs for him and gets so excited when Aaron talks to him.  Andrew's 6 month appointment is in a few weeks.  Last app. he weighed 19 pounds.  I am sure he is over 20 now.  The closer our trip to KY get the more homesick I become.  I get a little sad that my family and friends back home can't be around for all of those special moments.  I am also so thankful God has blessed us with such a wonderful church family.  I really have come to love our church more and more the longer we are here.  I pray this is where God has us for many many years to come!!

Our new house!!

So Alan and I have made the big plunge and are finally buying our first home!!  We have been renting for over a year and a half and have finally found the house we want!  I am so excited.  It's four bedrooms, 2500 sq, feet, 3 full bathrooms, a open split floor plan with an extra room off to the side in the front of the house.  We are still deciding weather to make it a family/play room or an office.  We will probably turn it into a play room for now.  It is absolutely beautiful on the inside and has a very large screened in back porch perfect for entertaining.  God has truly blessed us here in Florida and I am so excited to move in. We will close the first week in August!!  I will post pictures of the inside soon after!! I will have a guest bedroom and bathroom ready for visitors so come on down!! The beach is a very easy 45 min drive away!!
