Long time

Well, I haven't blogged in over a week. There are lots of excuses... mostly I never know when I am going to have to drop everything and leave the house so that it can be shown. I am very ready for our house to sell. It is difficult to be gone for long periods of time with Claire... i feel so bad for her. Yesterday the house showed 5 times!!! Someone make an offer already!!! Let's see, what other events have happened this week... Well, for one, Claire fell and landed on her nose. Blood was flowing, and of course it happened at 9pm. I took her to the doctor the next morning and her nose is not broken. She does have an ear infection though... i had no clue. She is on antibiotics for the first time. Jeff's new job is going well. He has been getting to spend so much more time with us, even with the lengthy commute! We can't wait to get over to Fort Worth so that he can be home even more! I only have about 4 1/2 weeks until the baby comes. Some friends of ours just had a baby boy, and after visiting them in the hospital it became so much more real that we are going to have a baby too! I am getting really excited! Well, II hope you have all had a great weekend. I am including a new video of Claire singing. Every morning we watch the Wiggles, her favorite show! This is her rendition of "The Flower Song."

Not so sweet...

Well, these last few weeks have been very fun, but also stressful. Jeff and I signed a contingency contract on a new home in Saginaw. We love it! It has tons of space, a great open kitchen, a huge backyard, and 2 guest bedrooms! Now we have to just wait until our home sells. Please pray for Gods timing... I am so anxious for it to sell. I want to move in to the new home before the baby comes. That is only 6 1/2 weeks away by the way! My Mom left today. It was so nice having extra hands to help me with Claire and keeping the house spotless. My belly is getting so big, that it makes it difficult for me to do simple things like hold Claire, or put her in her crib. Another new development in our lives is that Claire is not the sweet little angle that she was 2 weeks ago. Maybe she is still getting over a cold, or she is getting a tooth, or she is hitting the terrible two's way to early... who knows? I do know that she growls at me and hits me when I tell her NO, or disipline her in any way. We went to Macaroni Grill for dinner on Wed. night and Jeff and I had to take turns keeping her outside becasue she was throwing such a huge tantrum. Please pray for my patience, and Jeffs too. On a happier note... Jeff likes his new job! He even has his own office with a window! He is commuting to Fort Worth everyday, so it will be very nice when we can make the transition to the new house! Well, I hope you all have a great weekend! Here is a picture of Claire getting her hair cut for the first time this week!

So much fun...

Claire has been having SO much fun playing with her Grandparents these last few weeks. This week my parents came to visit. My Dad was only able to stay over Easter weekend, but my Mom is still here (until Friday). For Easter we went to church, and then came home for Easter lunch. After nap time it was off to the Easter egg hunt at church. Claire had a lot of fun picking up eggs... To round out the day Claire got to play in the sprinklers out front while we were watering the yard. Here are a few pictures of her fun day.

Big Post...

Jeff's parents were in town all last week. We had so much fun. We were able to finish all of the major projects around the house so that we could list it. The goal was to get the house in "show quality", and I think we did a good job getting it there. It has shown 3 times since Friday! Claire had a lot of fun with her Papa and Mimi... we adapted the names so that she could say them! On Friday Jeff and I went to Fort Worth with our realtor and looked at new construction homes. I am so excited about getting to pick out a new house! We found several that we liked, but we are still looking. On Saturday we went to Dallas Blooms at the Arboretum. It was beautiful! Claire had a blast chasing the birds and squirrels and playing in the grass. Along with Saturdays pictures I am also including a video of Claire playing you a tune on her harmonica. She learned how to play it this past week!
