We got the keys to our house last Wednesday and we've been painting/refinishing/packing ever since.
Lets just say moving with 2 littles is...crazy.
Lets also say that I've been ending every day with a beer.
I'm ready to be done with this whole moving thing.

The worried look.

Everett always has a vaguely worried expression on his face.
I suppose if your big brother was as rambunctious as Cash is, you'd look worried all the time too.
It cracks me up.
In other news, he's been routinely sleeping through the night for a week (average of 11 hours straight - holla!)
He's already having teething pains, which is laaaaame. It has him crying for an hour at a time during the day, for no real reason at all. It's awesome. I vaguely recall Cash going through the same thing starting at about this age (I blocked it out, obviously.) Cash still didn't get any teeth until he was almost one. Good times.
He has a killer bald spot in the back of his head but has managed to keep hair pretty much every where else (including his awesome mohawk that strangers ALWAYS comment on. And no, I don't purposefully do that to his hair - it sticks up like that all on its own. I just comb it.)
He wants to eat real food so bad already. Homeboy needs to get some better neck control before that happens.
Most of the time, he likes to fall asleep on his own. It's freaking GLORIOUS. And completely throws me for a loop since Cash was the complete opposite. There have been countless times that I've laid him down out of frustration because he was being so dang fussy and then he goes and falls asleep almost instantly. Weird kid.
Cash is still his number one fan. The way he loves on him just melts me.
He's ticklish right underneath his 3rd chin (yes, he has 3.) His laugh is awesome.
He hates tummy time. HATES. But a part of me isn't in any hurry to have him start mastering moving around. He can stay immobile for as long as he wants.

I've had 2 sick, feverish boys the last couple of days and I'm ready to pull my hair out.
Sick kids are the worst.
I've been drinking copious amounts coffee and eating far too many cookies to cope - not good for my bedtime or my waistline.
Here's hoping this ends before I gain 10 pounds.

The pants.

I completely blame these on my bestie.
She has brainwashed me into loving floral pants.
I never thought I'd see the day where I would purchase these bad boys.
Yet here we are.

Baby E.

Oh you know, finally finishing editing his 2 month pictures. Just in time to take his 3 month ones. Sigh.

Hey, I turned my computer on!

Actually, I packed the rest of our office and unearthed my chair so I could actually get to and sit down at said computer. It's been buried for...a month. Yowza. 
We're busy bees over here packing, cleaning, touch-up painting and basically going crazy waiting to get the keys to our new house. 
Speaking of, that's (hopefully) going to be next week! We're anxious, can you tell? 

I found this picture today and it made me smile. Nate likes to take pictures of us while we sleep. Usually they are highly unflattering, but what can you do?

The saga of pippen.

So its no major secret that Pippen has been walking on thin ice around here.
From a bladder infection to fleas to peeing on my floor every morning, I was ready to give her the boot.
She managed to escape outside and Nate and I figured she was gone.
But that night she was at the back door, meowing to get in.
The next morning I realized, for the first time in months, she hadn't peed on our floor.
So I let her back outside. And that afternoon she came back in, willingly, and with a lovely present of a dead gopher just outside our door
And you know what? She hasn't peed since.
I can not BELIEVE that this whole time she has been acting out time because she wanted to go outside.
That cat is going to give me gray hairs.

-we slept in thanks to both kids having pooptastrophes at 5 am.
-I had some deer visitors in my garden nibbling my tomatoes.
-I washed walls and spackled holes all morning.
-Cash ripped yet another movinh box making a fort. And here I thought I wouldn't need to buy more boxes.
-Got news that we are super close to closing on our house.
-Cash unrolled and crinkled an entire roll of contact paper.
-I lost my temper, yelled and immediately felt like the worst parent ever. (Yes, those 2 things are related.)
-I made delicious, cheesy sauce to go with our gnocchi for dinner to make myself feel better.
-I'm going to spend my evening watching ridiculous tv and painting my nails. It's gonna get wild.
