MMMOOOOOVED!!!

We are moved, we did it we did it!!! It feels good to be done...well there is still a bit of unpacking and organizing to do yet but we got a lot done today thanks to my family for coming out and helping!

 It was hard to leave the old house, but we are super excited for the door the Lord has opened for us and to start making this house our home. I am excited for all the memories to be made here!

I took a few random photo's during the day...but I was mostly...you know moving :)

Lincoln telling Grandma stories


Load it up!

Packing...so much fun... :)


Lunch break in the new house, we are excited for all the renos we have planned....may take a few years to get it to what we have all dreamed...but one day at a time :)

Lincoln lifted all the heavy boxes...thanks link! :)

Of course you always need a dounut break!

A much bigger kitchen then I am used to...all my stuff fits with room to spare! :)

Josh was the most excited to move us in

This evening we said goodbye to the house we started our together in. We will miss it!

And goodbye to the tree that everybody told us to build a house tree in....but we never did... :)


The kids are in bed and I believe I hear my bed calling me as well :)
Goodnight!

Growing up

We started potty training Silas about a month ago, I was really procrastinating on starting because I am not a big fan of the process of potty training :)
I knew Silas was ready, as he would hide when he had to go... ;)
So we bought him a potty and for myself I decided to go for a very chill potty training style. I worked a little to get him to go for the first time on the potty that way he knew he would get rewarded (with chocolate of course) when he went. To my surprise and relief he caught on so quickly! He has pretty much been potty training himself, he will ask to go....I barely ever have to remind him. He still has accidents but for the most part is really good! Yay!!!

My little boy is growing up!




 I know all kids aren't this easy to potty train....so I am pretty thankful! :)

Less then a week!

I am currently blogging from my phone, sitting on my bed putting Lincoln to sleep...actually he is sleeping but I'm waiting till he is in a deep enough sleep to put him down...you know like when the soother comes out deep sleep :) 

Today we spent the day in the city getting a few things for our new house, less then a week till we move in!!!! The owners have been kind enough to let us in a little early to move a few things in the garage and also we are hoping to get Silas room painted and decorated before we move in, so hopefully it makes the transition easier on him. 
Weird emotions going through me as we get ready to leave out current home, leaving our first home, the home started our together in, the home we brought both our newborn boys to, the home where so many memories have been made. It is weird to think that both our boys will never remember living here! I'm sad and super excited at the same time...I can't wait to make memories in the new home, to make it out own.

Well those are my random thoughts for tonight. I am now going to attempt to put Lincoln down for the night....but first I will leave you with a few photos from today :)

Lincoln 3 Months

How old:
3 months

Weight:
14lbs 4oz

New Discovery:
He has started grabbing toys and anything that is near him. 
He has started giggling! 

What he loves:
Humans! :) He loves when people talk to him!
Outdoors. He can be screaming mad and if you bring him to a window or outside he often will stop immediately! 

Night Sleep:
He had a week were he was getting up every 2-3 hrs but for most of the month been only getting up once a night! Ya'll I can't tell you how amazing and what a blessing that is! :)

Nick Names:
Link, Linky, Stinky Linky, baby winken (a spin off of what silas calls him :) 

For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to wait till his grumpy time to take his pictures...so he only lasted a few mins and then he didn't let me put him down anymore :)
