Getting Settled

April 29, 2009

Our house is really coming together and starting to feel so much more like a home. And now that we own a lawn mower and weed whacker to go with our house, we feel like real grown-ups. This is all a pretty fun experience. Everyday at least one of us takes a look around our home and exclaims, "This is our house!" It's fun!

We absolutely love our new neighborhood. It is full of young families and such nice people. There are always kids out playing and riding bikes and families taking evening walks with their strollers. And there are even three other families, just a few houses away, that are in our new ward. Our first day, moving in, two of them came and knocked on our door to introduce themselves and they even brought us some freezer jam! How great is this neighborhood? Kylie and I are enjoying the fact that there are other young moms and babies just a few doors down to play with during the day too.

Kylie is loving the new house. There is so much room for her to roam around and explore. And everyday I am amazed to watch what she is able to get into. One of her favorite places to explore lately is underneath the couches. I don't know what she's reaching for but she loves getting her hands under there and reaching as far back as she can. And the blanket that I used to lay on the floor for her to roll around on, now usually becomes an accessory that she wears while exploring or a fun new toy to drag around the room with her.

Since I've slacked on posting lately, I am about to make up for it with an overload of pictures. Here are just a few from the last couple days...

Kylie got some new jammies and Mike wanted to make sure I got plenty of pictures of her wearing them when she woke up. I wonder why...

Congrats on the house, that is so exciting. I am really looking forward to that day. You'll have to post some pics when you're all unpacked.

I ♥ Target! Julie's got those jammies, too!
