Happy 4th of July!

Over the last two months we’ve been busy getting unpacked and settled into our new life here.  So far, so good.  There is a lot to adjust to here (like Target being an hour away! *sniff*), but overall we are happy with W’s new job, our location, and our home.  We’re meeting people more quickly than we did with our last move, which I find to be good for my sanity, and we’ve already even had dinner guests a couple of times.

Today, to celebrate Independence Day, we had a low-key day at home. We took LC to the neighborhood splash park and she had a ball.  We had to tear her away from the water features when it was time to leave.  For dinner we grilled hamburgers and hotdogs and LC tasted her first hotdog (thumbs up from her), and first baked beans (love at first bite), and first yellow squash (she mistakenly thought it was a piece of fruit, haha…and yes, squash is technically a fruit, but, you know…).  It was hot today (100 degrees), so we spent the afternoon in the air conditioning.  I am thankful every day that we do not have the darned swamp cooler that we had to live with for the last two years. So, so, so thankful!

Every holiday I feel the need to look back on photos from this time last year, when LC was just an itty bitty thing.  This time last year, she was 3 months old and just sitting up in the Bumbo for short periods of time.  It was really hot in El Paso, as well, so we just took her outside for a bit on the patio.  This year she’s running around, talking up a storm, and practically seeming like a grown-up compared to her bobblehead infant days.  Babies are sweet, but toddlers are fun!


I’d like to get around to writing her 15 month update before she turns 16 months.  She has grown and changed SO much since her birthday, I can hardly believe it.  Love this girl!
