New Adventures and baby update!

Where should I even start?

Patryck at 5 months 02/01/11

Let’s see, since the last time I’ve posted was Christmas. It feels like it was such a long time ago. I can’t believe it.

Our monkey (I’m talking about Patryck of course) has grown so much since then. Patryck is 5 months, 1 week and 1 day today. He is so big already; you have to see it to believe it.

He’s doing a great job at rolling back and forth from belly to back and then back to his belly. He also has 2 teeth already. Those came in around January 15th when he was about 4 and a half months. Both bottom teeth are completely out. It’s amazing how fast they arrive and how fast he’s using them already.

My teeth are out!

Patryck loves music, he can be super upset but if play some music or put a music video on, he’ll stop and just pay attention. It’s amazing how much he loves music.
We took him to see his pediatrician this past Monday, he’s been fighting a cold, and he’s weighing at 17.4Lb!!!! My little baby is not so little anymore.

I'm a big boy already

We’re still working on sleep training as he wakes up in the middle of the night still and he still wants to eat at night. But we’re working on it.

Now onto the BIG changes in our lives!!! Ready??

Tom received an amazing opportunity/promotion at work and was asked if he would relocate. He said as long as I could come with that he would strongly consider it.

Well, guess what? They promoted me too (we work for the same company)

With that being said, we had anticipated that we would have about 90 days to get our things together and move but they want us to start right away and we only really had about 40 days.

I know, insane right?!?

Where are we moving from and where to?

We are currently in Sunny California and we are going to be moving to Snowy Indiana!!!

It is amazing how fast things are progressing and even more amazing how things seem to be falling into place. I truly believe that this was meant to be and that we are making the right decision and the best one too.

From today we only have 10 days left in California. That saddens me a lot since I’ve lived here in CA for 10 and a half years, but we have a little one now and we have to do what’s best for Him and our family.
We’ve always talked about moving out of California since the cost of living here is so darn expensive and the truth is that if it was left to us to make that move we would probably never do it or it would take a very long time.

On the bright, good side is that my parents are living with us and they have been an amazing help through all of this (of course stressful at times too). I don’t believe that we would have been able to pull this off if they were not with us.

So, for now the plan is for the movers to start packing us up on the 17th and they should leave our home with all of our things on the 19th. My mom, Patryck and I are flying to Indiana on the 19th first thing in the morning and Tom, my dad and the dogs are driving our cars there.

It’s been a world wind but I’m sure that it will all workout.

That is it for now. I sure hope that things will go smoothly and that we’ll be settled in with no problem.
