It’s been a while since I last posted. One word describes our little Davis Family right now- CRAZY!
We’ve had two major life changes. The first being (of course) having a baby and second we went and uprooted ourselves after spending nine years in one place. It all happened a few weeks after Jack was born. One evening we had a brief discussion about feeling like we needed more room and up and decided to move to a new home right then and there. Our old house was feeling a bit small with the birth of our second child and after an opportunity to move to a bigger place presented itself, we went for it! The whole move was last-minute for all parties involved and needed to be accomplished in less than three weeks. In retrospect, we probably should have thought it through a little more, but the excitement of a new home had us believing that it wouldn’t be that bad!
Boy, were we wrong. Not only did we have more “stuff” than we thought, it was over 100 degrees most of the days during the move, two-year olds don’t help pack (they unpack), newborns are needy (lol), power outages and storms caused us some damage, and surprise- many people were unavailable when we needed help. If I would have had the money to hire a moving crew, I would have paid them a million dollars.
To say the least it was a really tough move, but we did it and we love our new home! There are many great things about it. We have lots more space and there is a fantastic view of the river nearby. We are still in the same city, but in a new area which is much closer to my husbands work. Overall, we are so happy we did it, but greatly looking forward to when we can finally get settled in. We still have a little ways to go.
Jameson is now two and a half! He is talking up a storm and can count to ten, most of the time (sometimes he skips over nine and ten and goes straight to fourteen). He has a new room with airplanes and he is soon to have a toddler bed and to be potty trained. We hope. With all this moving hoopla and baby brothers it has been quite the busy summer for Jameson. But we have managed to squeeze swim lessons in there and fun times at grandma’s pool. He also continues to be quite brilliant when it comes to wearing his prosthesis. Jameson is an amazing kid with a new hair style to boot!
Jackson is now almost three months old! He is nearly 13 pounds and quite chubby and cute. He is such a sweetie who smiles all the time probably so that he can show off his adorable double dimples. He loves to watch and listen to his big brother play with Mike the Knight and tell him stories. We like to call him Jack most of the time. And just yesterday he started to giggle, even though he has been cooing and squealing for a few weeks now!
Jim and I just celebrated our ninth wedding anniversary! We have lots to give thanks for, we especially love our boys and feel so very blessed!
