The last of our boxes arrived yesterday and we are settling into our corporate apartment. We came here with 4 boxes and 4 suitcases. I feel so lost without all of our stuff. We definitely have to do some shopping for winter clothes. It's FREEZING!!!! The past few days have been pretty rough but each day is getting better. We are all trying to adjust to a new place, apartment life (our poor neighbors) and stay at home mommy-hood! It never crossed my mind that Brock would have a hard time adjusting to a new place. He is such a laid back kid I figured he would just go with it. He hasn't been eating or sleeping well which makes for a cranky baby and an exhausted momma! Last night he only woke up once and went right back down after I gave him his paci back so I'm hoping this wont last much longer.
Other than our challenges with eating and sleeping we have been able to get out and do some exploring. We went to Lego Land at Mall of America and Brock absolutely loved it. There were a lot of kids his age there that he could bang the blocks on the tables with. They also have an aquarium that I think we are going to visit next week. Yesterday we had baby story time at the library. We had a lot of fun reading, singing, dancing and playing with toys.
We are going to continue our search for a home on Saturday and our house in Florida closes next week. I can't wait to find a place of our own, with our own furniture. I feel like I'm living in someone elses place. It's weird.
We met Brock's pediatrician yesterday and are really pleased. The office is brand new and super clean. His doctor was very nice and he loved the fish tank in the lobby. :) The best part is- His ear infection cleared, so we can hold off on seeing the ENT Specialist for tubes!!!! Fingers crossed that we can make it through this winter with no more ear infections and no surgeries!!!
Nona and Grand Buddy (my in-laws) are babysitting for us Friday so Aaron and I can go see Hall Pass. I'm SO excited for a free babysitter and a date night!!!


  1. I'm so happy for you guys and we miss Brock terribly!!! But its great to hear good things! Hope everything works out soon!

  2. Aww. We miss ya'll too! We went and looked at a daycare for Brock to go to part time while I'm at home and it just wasn't the same. I compared all the teachers to you guys and they were no match. Ya'll left us with some big shoes to fill! I hope ya'll are well and Lucy better not have a new boyfriend yet! :)

  3. Haha Right now Lucy's main concern is how the heck shes going to adapt to the next room because she turned 1! lol I friended you on facebook, so I expect to see more photos there then there are on here! I miss his sweet little face so much. The room is just not the same without him!! But, I am glad to hear you are doing well there! Can't wait to see baby....Brody?? lol Miss you guys!
