Goodbye New Mexico

I'm sorry I have been awful about updating the blog.  In the pre-Elizabeth time I would update while Jason was napping or after he went to bed, but with Elizabeth I spend a lot of that time sleeping or holding her.  We also had my parents visiting last week so we were kept busy.  It was really great to have my mom around to help especially on Thursday when Jeff and I were both feeling sick.  We know my dad loved cuddling his new granddaughter too!

This is also shaping up to be a busy week also: we will be packing boxes all week, then on Friday and Saturday we will be loading up a truck and on Sunday we will be moving to San Antonio, Texas.  While Jeff is looking for a new job we have decided to stay with his parents.  It will give me some help with the kids while Jeff is off interviewing and it will be nice to live in a major area with shopping and an airport.  I just hope we don't have to impose on their generosity for too long.

I know the grandparents will be very happy to see the kiddos.  Elizabeth might have started out small but she is growing fast.  At her two week appointment she had gained 1 pound and 3 ounces!  Our little chubster is a pretty cute girl though.  Jason has a few moments of jealousy over mommy's time but he has been nothing but sweet with his baby sister.  One of the most difficult evenings came when Jason was refusing his dinner and everything other than Mommy.  Elizabeth needed to eat and I had not had a chance to finish my dinner.  To say the least I didn't have enough hands to make both of my children happy.  Things have gotten better as I learn what needs have to be dealt with immediately and what can wait a bit.  I also recently realized that Elizabeth may have been effected by my afternoon soda so I cut it out yesterday and we had a great night.  Hopefully it wasn't a fluke. 

Well a little boy is awake so I have to sign off now.


  1. Wow! So much has happened since I talked to Jeff. You guys are crazy :) Little Beth is so cute! Remember to keep taking pictures because so much happens this first year -- you don't want to miss it!

  2. We had a wonderful visit. It was the high point of my month, and maybe the year! Elizabeth is just one little bundle of love -- what a great blessing to us all! And Jason, for all his two-ness, has a wonderful impish smile at the end of it all. I can't thank you two enough for letting us share this busy time. Good luck on the move(s). -Grandpa.
