Full Speed Ahead... now that we have internet again=)

We are back up and running.... the cable guy showed up about 3 hrs ago ( only approx 3 weeks AFTER we moved) and just finished connecting our internet- HALLELUJAH!!! I have felt so out of the loop! It has been a crazy month and this weekend looks to be just as busy so it will still be awhile before I get too many posts up but don't worry- house pics and Tallon's 3 yr post are coming soon. Can you believe my baby boy turns 3 on Monday!! YIKES- where is time going.

We are VERY thankful for all the help that people gave us moving, loading and unloading the truck and getting situated!! a BIG thanks to our small group, family and friends!! My parents have been soo giving of their time and graciuous to step up and help Reeves paint as I am "out of duty with painting due to the pregnancy"! So far... they have painted our den, foyer and upstairs hallway, Tal' and our bedroom, 2 bathrooms and have put 3 coats on the baby's room ( it had dark wood paneling! I just need to pick out bedding and a paint color for the baby's room and we will be set!!

but for now... the following will have to suffice....

A funny story- Tallon woke up from his nap 1 day and proceeded to go potty by himself and get his underwear back on by himself ( notice- they are inside out and backwards!!!) . I heard him playing and came upstairs and this is what I found......Tallon had found a paper towel roll and put it on the end of the paint roller and was "painting"!!

Tallon started school the first week of September- he is going to Calvary Baptist Preschool 2 days a week and is in a "late 3's" class- ( it is for kids whose birthday falls after the school cut-off). It has been such a blessing- I think Tal really needed the time away from home and the socialization and I DEFINITELY needed the time to get things done around the house, work and start to prepare for baby sister. He absolutely LOVES his teacher and whenever we ask him who he wants to pray for- he almost always says Mrs. Floyd and his school class. He has had absolutely NO PROBLEM getting out of the car with a stranger and walks straight into the school ( I, on the other hand- have had a LOT harder time watching my little boy do this). When I pick him up- he is smiling away and happily tells me about his morning ( who he played with, what they read, what activity he did). I am soo sooo thankful that we put him in preschool there!
Tallon often walks in our new home telling me - "I like my new house" and I am enjoying having a playroom!!!!

We got to see baby girl yesterday morning- she weighs 2 lbs 8 oz now! My total weight gain is now 10 lbs and I am happy with that. I reached 27 weeks this past Tues- hard to believe how quickly the months are going. Having LOTS of braxton hicks contractions and I failed my 1 hr glucose test yest so now I have to go BACK to Dr office for the 3 hr test- PLEASE pray I pass.... not sure what I will do if I have to watch what I eat!!! She is quite the little mover and we are all enjoying feeling her kick and move across my belly. Tallon is soo sweet and often asks to see Baby sister and loves to put his hand on my belly and give it kisses. He is constantly telling me my belly is "going up"- Yes Son, it is definitely getting bigger!

I just love her little nose and lips!
This is her arm ( you can see her fingers were wrapped tightly- she was holding on to her lower leg/foot)
We can not wait to meet you little one.

The 4D ultrasound is incredible!!! I'll have to look in to how much that costs! The picture of Tallon 'painting' is too cute! Glad to have you back in the blog-o-sphere!

By the way...tell Reeves we really enjoyed the weekend!

Glad you all are getting settled and Tal is loving school. We have had trouble in the mornings the last two weeks, but she is happy when I pick her up. I totally agree that this is a great place for them. The staff is SO loving!

Can't wait to meet baby girl and I am a bit jealous of your nice images, we couldn't tell anything in ours due to his/her position.

Can't wait to check our your new house. We need to get together soon!

This is the funnest, craziest, most memorable time. New house with playroom, new school, a 3-yr-old, and a new baby. We are celebrating all your "new" great changes! And so happy that you can blog again!
