Where have we been?

It's been a crazy few weeks around here...

We moved into a new apartment/townhouse 2 weekends ago.  With the help of some awesome new friends we have all our stuff back and out of storage.  We're slowly but surely getting settled...


Ray and I went on a cruise to the Bahamas with some friends.  It was relaxing, refreshing, and awesome to get to spend some time together. 

But we came back to a sick little baby boy :(  Sweet Cole got croup while we were gone.  So this past week we stayed in the house and focused on getting well.  (Ray ended up sick too!) 

We had a great weekend this past weekend when my mom (Mimi) came to visit.  (More on that to come) and we are ready for a busy week as we're headed down to SC soon to stay with my sister and help her with the babies and visit Ray's family and celebrate cousin Brody's 1st birthday...

I think in January life slows down... maybe...

8 months

This post is a little late BUT my boy is 8 months old.  I can't believe he is growing up.  (I think I say that every month!)  He is crawling everywhere now but he definitely prefers to stand.  He is pulling up on everything.  It is so fun watching him grow and discover new things.

Egg in the Hole

Normally I sleep until Cole wakes up (between 7 and 8) but have decided that I need to start getting up early and get the day started before he wakes up.  I also want to help my husband in the mornings since he works so hard so that I can stay home with Cole.  I made myself get up this morning and I made Ray breakfast before he left for work (around 6:30 am)

I made him Egg in the Hole because I knew he would love it. 
And he did.  He even tweeted about it. 
(And of course we needed coffee at 6 am)

And since I was in a cooking mood today and because my sweet friend Carrie was joining us for dinner I made this AHHH-MAZING Chicken for dinner.  The sauce was so great that I saved some to marinate some more chicken in this weekend.  Yummy day here!

p.s.  tomorrow is moving day!  The POD is coming. The POD is coming! yay!

We went down to the playground at our apartment to play Thursday afternoon. 

Cole chilled in the stroller.
Cole practiced his skills on the rings.  It's serious stuff.
Strengthening my core is serious too. 
and a little silly...

I like this wheel.  

I'm not sure about the slide.

I love playing with Dad.
and snuggling with Mom
