Blog Break

I fell off the blogging bandwagon for a few weeks and I actually started missing it and I especially missed reading everyone else's blog and seeing what their little kiddos have been up to. I have a little bit of catching up to do.

Within the past few weeks:

-We decided that we are moving. Again. We moved less then 2 month ago but our neighbors are horrid. They get upset at us and stomp on their floor when Everett cries. They do laundry until 2am. The daughter's ex-boyfriend broke into their apartment and the cops told us that he hides in the bushes at night and to call them if we see him. We don't feel safe here anymore. With the property being brand new and nice, I didn't think that there'd be riff raff. Guess I was wrong. We're in search of a house where we won't have to share any walls, floors, or ceilings with anyone.

-Everett went in for his 15 month check up the other week. He weighed in at 20.18 lbs (14th %) and is 30.8 inches tall (40th %). He has adjusted well to whole milk, considering he had been on soy formula as an infant. He has also been a wonderful eater, eating anything and everything I give him. I've been trying to give him a wide variety of foods and I recently bought him some baked, organic sweet potato fries and he loved them. Moms, try them for your little toddlers. I think they will love them!

-We are planning on putting Everett into daycare. We've noticed that his nanny's heart doesn't seem to be here anymore. She did mention awhile back that she was interested in focusing more time into her photography business and I've recently received the notion that she'd like to move on. Not only that but we think being in daycare and being amongst other children will stimulate his social skills. He loves getting out of the house and being around other people.

-I came down with the flu and was bed ridden for almost a week. Never did I know that the flu would make you feel like death. About the 5th day, it got so bad I rushed into an urgent care. I've never been more thankful for my health than I am now. I have a lingering cough but it should be gone within a week or two.

Here are some photos of Everett from these past several weeks. Enjoy!


  1. I can't believe they stomp on the floor when E cries!! I would take a broom and pound right back! That's pretty bad. I hope you guys find the perfect place to rent soon. I'm sure Everett will love day care and I think it will be a good thing for both of you ;) Woohoo on eating anything and everything. And yay for no reaction to the milk! Glad you are feeling better.

  2. Wow...sounds like a lot of stuff going on. Sorry your new place wasn't working out for you, but it's better to be in a place that is a little more family oriented.

    Cute pics of Everett! I am digging the hair cut! I love the label pic... haha

  3. Good luck on the new house hunt. We lived in a Townhome before our house now and I hated sharing walls with other people... I still lay in bed and have to remind myself the wall is to the outside, not someone else's home. :) It's a nice feeling. Too bad that people are so rude as to pound on the floor over a baby crying. Some people are so sad and inconsiderate!!!

    I was sick for almost 3 weeks and finally took my butt into the Minute Clinic and I was so thankful that I did...I needed antibiotics!!! :) Glad to hear you are on the mend!!!

    Good luck finding a good daycare for Everett!!!! It's a tough search but you will know, in your heart and your gut, when you've found the right place for your little guy. :)

    Also, glad to see you're back blogging. Missed your posts!
