Catching up...

In the past month, so much has changed in our lives. First, we now have a (somewhat) mobile baby. We took a trip to Orlando to visit my friend, Diana in mid-October, which was so much fun. C and I spent the first day there at Universal, and we got to do all the big rides because T was with my friend for the day :) My ultimate nerd dreams came true that day because Harry Potter World. Enough said. The next day we went to Magic Kingdom for the greatest thing ever, AKA Mickey's Not-so-Scary Halloween Party! We went a couple of years ago at Disneyland and absolutely loved it, so we wanted to check out how things are done at Disney World. Ashton dressed up as Mickey and T was Minnie. I had found this super cute Minnie ears headband on Etsy that was specifically for babies, but it didn't come until the day after we left for Florida, so that was a bummer. But then we got a bunch of candy, so win!

The party actually goes until midnight, so T fell asleep in her stroller and slept from about 8:30 until the next morning. When I went to get her out of the pack-and-play, she had rolled completely over from her back to her front. That was the first time she had ever rolled over! She did it once more while she was awake that day, but now she is a champion roller and will pretty much get to the opposite position ASAP. It caused some sleep issues for a little while, because I would lay her down on her back and she would immediately roll over and then start crying. But now she seems to like sleeping on her tummy.

We also had her 4-month check and she is growing like a champ. She is still only 18th percentile for weight, but she is increasing at a good rate so that's all they care about. T also loves to blow raspberries, talk to herself and to the monkeys that hang from her bouncy seat, and smile and laugh when C gets home from work.

I also left Intermountain and took a position at a software company called Infinisource. I was super nervous about leaving what I know, but am so so glad I made the change because I love it. I am a marketing writer and basically have fulfilled my other lifelong dream of being able to write for a living. Oh, and I get to work from home a day a week, so that's one more day I get to spend with sweet T.

A couple of weeks ago, C was talking to the superintendent at his job site who mentioned he was selling his townhouse. Fast forward to today, we have accepted an offer on our condo and are planning to close on both on December 9. So that's another crazy thing that is happening in our lives. We will be sad to leave the place we have loved and called home for 4.5 years, and there is such a heart-wrenching sadness that comes along with leaving a home that you have loved. But T's room is currently a combination nursery/gym/laundry drying area/office, and it just isn't working. We need more space and this place met every need (and want) we have. So on we go to the next adventure!
