A light at the end of the tunnel

We are almost done with our house projects and when I say almost done, I mean we have more done than we need to do. Josh and I decided instead of buying a newer house right away that we would fix up this one since we love the location and our back yard. We have in the past 18 months pretty much totally updated the whole house, we have painted every room, new doors, trim, carpet, hardwood, siding, air conditioner, windows, etc.... and now all we have left to do is less than 10 things. I can say that I am very glad that I married someone very handy since we have been able to do alot of the projects ourselves.

We just finished the office which is really nice since I work virtual two days of the week, the only problem is that since Josh has been working some evenings we are fighting over who gets to work in there :-) Pictures will be posted soon!

Happy Halloween from the Knight, Princess and Dragon aka the Daltons

Our little big boy

I think we are going to have a tall little boy. He was 21.5 inches tall when he was born, at his 2 month appointment he was 26 inches tall and at 4 months was 27.5. Watch out Uncle Brad, this one could pass you up!

Happy Feet!

Now that someone has figured out how to roll over, he attempts to do this in his swing when I do not strap him in. I thought the below event was blog worthy. Who needs hands when you can use your feet!!

Okay not totally, but almost!! He has been so fascinated with his toes lately.


Well this weekend we took advantage of the great weather and headed to Eckert's for apple picking with some friends and family and had so much fun!! Gideon was the star of the show, I dont think he sat in his stroller the whole day.

Let the games begin....

Dieting to me is such a bad word, I did great the whole pregnancy, I actually weighed less when I left the hospital than I did on my first ob visit that confirmed I was pregnant and actually managed to get more weight off the first 6 weeks. Then I am not sure what happened, call it post partum, busy lifestyle, birth control pills or going back to work but I have gained 15 pounds the past couple of months.

Anyone that knows me, knows there are two things I love - traveling and shopping. So Josh made a deal with me today that if I can loose the weight before Jan. 1st that we will go on a "Celebration Vacation" ( sounds like a cruise for old people) :-) to Mexico. So I am totally motivated, so let the games begin!!! Mexico here I come!!

Well its official we have it! Want details talk to Josh he is the technical person plus he gets referral points! I just like being able to watch tv while we are recording something else and we are also able to record 4 things at the same time!! How sweet is that!

Rolling, rolling, rolling

Well our little one has accomplished it!! He tried all weekend and finally suceed it yesterday. I woke Josh up early on Sunday because I was sure he was going to do it then, but no he decided to do it when no one was watching. Congrats, little one you have accomplished it, now if we can just get you to hold your own bottle :-)
