Greetings From Charlie

Charlie After Flipping


We now live in a community with LOTS of kiddos. We are prepared for all those punkins and princesses and ghosts and goblins...and I'm secretly hoping to see a Snooki.

~Happy Halloween~

...from our little lady bug.
Hope you get more TREATS than TRICKS!

What a Week!

Beautiful rainbow I saw last Wed.
The packing paper from the kitchen boxes only! Good thing they do recycling in Gilbert!

If only Charlie ate solids...she'd be all over that coffee cake!

Of course it didn't take us long to find a GREAT coffee shop. They also serve the cutest cupcakes that have been featured on the Food Network and Ace of Cakes!! I have found true love.

Bathtime with Grandma Jill!!!We made steak salad and it was totally delicious!
With Jill's help we are getting settled in our new home and exploring our new town...I think we are going to be really happy here! Love to you!

Home Sweet Home

I am here in Gilbert with Charlie and was able to steal Internet for now! Jordan and Wallace will be joining us this afternoon after some work obligations! We are so excited for the movers to get here and get gone so we can begin the fun of unpacking!
Last night was so strange to be in an empty house, in a town you don't know very well. It felt super lonely. Thank goodness Charlie was with me! I went to Bashas (grocery store) to get a couple things and then came home and inflated the air mattress and called it a night. Charlie was up early(4am) , like usual. So I gave her a bath and played, and now we're waiting patiently for the movers to get here with everything! Have a great WEDNESDAY!!!

In Transit

I thought I would put up a post before we leave for Gilbert. We should have Internet by Wed., but you know how that goes!

Miss Charlie has quickly become the funniest person in our household! Every day she is growing bigger and stronger and needs to be carefully watched. She has been trying to squirm out of everything. Her swing, the diaper changer, my arms, etc. She is a super active baby which is a good thing, just hard to keep up with! Our friend Claudia watched her for us on Saturday while I worked (Jordan was on a road trip) and introduced her to Baby Einstein! Charlie LOVED it! We just put her on the floor and start the dvd and she is entertained for 30 min. It really keeps her attention (more than Jersey Shore) and I don't feel guilty having her watch TV.

She is sleeping pretty well at night. Not through the night yet, but usually for a 3 hour stretch/eat/4 more hours...I'll take it! I am no longer breastfeeding...When I went back to work my supply went way down because I could not pump during the day, so I decided about three weeks ago we would be done. I'm fine with it, she's fine with it! She is now 3.5 months old and around 10 pounds --- BIG girl!

We area anxious and excited about the next chapter in our lives and would appreciate any prayers for safe travels and a peaceful transition! LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU ALL!!

Busy Weekend

Nothing but smiles from Charlie these days! 3 months old!!
Spoons at my darling friend Darlene's house

I am taking the opportunity to GET RID OF CRAP since we are moving

Until Jordan's replacement is named, he is covering the first games of the hockey season. This weekend took him to Rapid City, SD so Charlie and I had to entertain ourselves! We went to game night at Darlene's house on Saturday and then had dinner with Claudia and Caroline last night! It was a super busy weekend, one that makes me sad to be leaving our friends. This is going to be a rough week of "see-ya-laters" ...

Change...Should be our middle name

Long story short...

Jordan was offered great j.o.b. We're going to take it.

We are moving to Gilbert, AZ.

Jordan will work for Stretch Internet.

This will be our home. (hopefully)
It will be hotter than H.E.doublehockeysticks.

He's pumped! I'm pumped (he won't be traveling)! Charlie is double pumped!
