Lots of doings

This week has been busy!

Tuesday and Wednesday, my mom came down to help me continue unpacking. We got a LOT accomplished! All the rooms are mostly unpacked and settling is going well.

Yesterday was a big day. Phillip worked in the morning, as usual. (His hours during the summer are 7-1.) I got Emily up and fed and got everything together for our big outing. Emily had an appointment with the doctor in Brownwood at 1 so we left about 11:45 to get there. Even though she had a check up with the pediatrician in Dallas, we wanted to see someone here just to get established before her two-month check up. Dr. Scot Morris is an ACU grad and was highly recommended by several people so we chose to see him. He was great and really took his time with us and Emily. I think we're really going to like him.

After the appointment, we went to Wal-Mart. I fed Emily in the parking lot before we went in then we began our hour and a half-long journey. I forgot how much it costs to restock a kitchen after you move! We spent $350. That did include some things for the house that weren't just groceries, but we were also stocking up on things so we don't have to go as often. It takes a little more planning when you have to drive 45 minutes to get to a good grocery store!

This is what you get when you have a silly daddy! "King Tut" Emily

Today was a "finishing" day. I finished our bathroom and bedroom (excluding hanging pictures). It feels good to have it done, but I think I worked too much and didn't take enough time to sit and enjoy Emily. Actually, I've been doing a lot of that the past two weeks and I feel really bad for it. Maybe today will teach me that it's okay to just work for two or three hours a day and not kill myself trying to get the house settled NOW.

The other big thing is that today Emily is one month old. When we took these pictures, I didn't think to have a sign made that said she was one month old, but I'll try to remember that for next month.

Enjoying my new wrist rattles...okay, so Emily really doesn't have a clue that they're even on her wrists!

Chillin' in my new hat and shades

A special thank you to Aunt Jenni for all the props in these pictures! Emily loves them!

So, Phillip has too much time on his hands, but aren't babies fun?

Emily is so beautiful! Enjoy holding and cuddling her :) I miss that the most with Colton. Now he's only still when he's sleeping.

the pictures are great!!! I am so glad that Emily loves her new stuff.... :-) give her a kiss (or 12) for me!

I remember that feeling of wanting "everything unpacked and NOW", so well. I worked too hard many days, too. Just remember that it will eventually get done (I didn't get settled until Jenna was at least 2 months old). I eventually limited myself to just a couple boxes a day.

Love the pictures! Are those cloth diapers?
