What a big boy!

Ok, I'm gonna give it another shot. Mainly b/c I'm so proud of our "big boy" and wanted to share what all is going on in our world. Hayden has made the transition to his toddler bed. We did it Sunday night, after Hayden had spent a few days climbing out of his crib. So many people told us their child went to their toddler bed at the same age, so we bit the bullet and did it. I really was sweating it Sunday night because I just felt like he was too little and I just knew he'd be up all night. Well, two nights later and he hasn't gotten out of his bed once! Not even when he wakes up in the mornings. He just yells "Mamma!" Just as I was adjusting to the fact that my baby isn't a baby anymore, he moved up to the 18-24 month class today at Rainbow School. He just turned 17 months on Sunday, but they felt that he would enjoy the older class better than being with the "babies." Drop off was very easy this morning and I'm just crossing my fingers that I'll get a good report this afternoon when I pick him up. Big changes going on right now, but I love it!

Well, blogspot let me write two new entries with pictures and when I was finishing up my last one, it got jacked up again. So...my continuation of what's going on with us is saved as a draft until I can upload pictures again. If you click on our blog one day and it's gone, it will be because I'm angry and I've just about had it with blogspot! Grrr....

Cathing up

Ok, now that blogspot is letting me upload pictures, I can finally catch up on my blogging! Let me start where I left off. We are now in Texas and settled in our temporary home. We left North Carolina on December 21st and spent Christmas at my parents and even made it to Oklahoma for a few days with Matt's family. Matt headed back to NC on the 29th to pack up and finish his work duties while Hayden and I went back to my parents house. After 26 hours of driving, Matt arrived in DFW on the 6th of January and Hayden and I met him here. We were all very ready to sleep in our own beds, that's for sure! Hayden and I lived out of suitcases (and bless his heart...he slept in a pack and play the whole time) for 2 weeks! Our place is very small and most of our stuff is in the garage, but we've made it home for now. We've already begun the house hunt and are trying to look at homes and meet with builders (if we decide to go that route) a little bit every weekend. I'll save all those details for my next post, but for now I'll just post some of our Christmas pictures.

On Strike!!

Ok, I wrote a really long blog entry, updating everyone on what's going on with us, and tried to post pictures....and blog won't let me for some reason!! I've tried to add the pictures for 3 days now and they won't add to my entry. I'm so mad b/c that's one of the main things I look at on people's blogs...the pictures! So, I deleted my entry and I'm on strike with blogspot until this uploading pictures problem gets fixed! Ugh....
