First Major Fall

Collin fell down the stairs at my Mother-in-law's house yesterday morning. He did not fall far and would not have been hurt but his head hit the edge of the wood that the railing is secured into. So, needless to say, he got a small cut and it will probably have an ugly bruise. He cried for a while, but then we took his mind off of it with some chocolate covered raisins. He loves those things! Maybe we can't even call it a "major" fall if there was no need to visit the emergency room. I know it will probably happen, but I dread that day! He is fearless most of the time so we have to really watch him when he is climbing anything.

Hello to All!

Thought I might write a quick something. Not much is happening in our neck of the woods. Garner has started working 12 hour shifts which I think he really likes. He enjoys the two extra days he has off during the week and it's nice that Collin can stay home more. I've been doing a lot of online browsing/shopping for the new house. Garner's dad is giving us his dining room table and I bought new chairs from Kirkland's for it. The chairs are so pretty and I got a great deal on them. I've also purchased our coffee table, console table, two end tables, and a matching wall hook from Target on sale. I'm so proud of my purchases so far because they have all costed less than I was planning for. All I have left to get now is our entertainment center, kitchen table and bar stools which I have found at Target as well and am hoping they go on sale soon. So, everything is coming together nicely. I have plenty of time considering we are not supposed to move in until February, but I like planning ahead and it's been a lot of fun so far thinking about what I want to do with the house as far as decorating. We won't have to do anything as far as fixing, painting or stuff like that. The house is just as we want it and that is a relief! Well, unless we find out we are having a girl and in that case, we will paint her room. Garner is so excited we are going to have enough room now to have family holidays at our house. I think it's so cute how much he loves to spend time with family. Well, that is about all I have to say for now. Hope everyone here in the Memphis area is enjoying the rainy weather!

Stay Cold Please!

I am so ready for the weather to stay cold. There are several reasons for this readiness. One, I'm sick of having to catch the weather channel to make sure I'm dressed appropriately. Two, the constant change in temperature keeps messing with my sinuses (which by the way only happens when I'm pregnant). My third and most important reason is...most of my fat girl clothes are for cold weather so it makes it very difficult to find comfortable clothing for my expanding waistline when it's hot. I know, it's petty, but hey, I'm pregnant so that gives me the right! :) Speaking of me being a preggo, I did a really dumb thing last night. This will come to no surprise to most considering I do dumb things when I'm not even pregnant! This was pretty bad though and will give you a good laugh, so get ready. I was giving Collin a bath and when it was time to get out, I pushed the lever down for the tub to drain. Once I got Collin out of the tub, I realized it was not draining. So I called for Garner and told him the tub was clogged up. He came with a plunger and I went to dress Collin in his room. A few seconds later, Garner came in and said "it would help if you pushed the lever down for the tub to drain". I swear I pushed it down and Collin must have pushed it back up...that's my story and I'm sticking to it! It gave Garner and his dad a good laugh anyway.
Well, here is a baby update. I had a check-up last week and everything looks and sounds good. Nice strong heart beat. We go in for the ultrasound on Nov. 9th to find out what we are having and I can't wait!

Garner's Trip Across the Stage

Garner's graduation ceremony was held this past Friday night. He was so cute in his cap and gown! :) He graduated with honors and we were all so proud of him! Now he begins his quest in nursing school which I know he will do great in as well.

Sick Little Boy

Collin has been sick since last Saturday. It started out as a cold, but got worse. I took him to the doctor yesterday and he said he has a virus and his tonsils are swollen and irritated. Nothing much we can do though since it's a virus. We are just giving him dimetap for the congestion. That seems to help. He is better today and went to the sitters. His poor little nose is so raw though. Anyway, that's all for now.

We Got It!

Well, we have come to an agreement with our friends regarding the purchase of their house. I am so excited. I really love this house. So, assuming nothing major happens between now and February, we will be closing on Feb. 15th. Great Valentine's Day gift!

Possible Purchase

Some good friends of ours are building a house and will be finished with it in February. Their current house is exactly what we want to purchase and we are planning to buy in February. The funny thing is it's in the back part of the same neighborhood we moved out of. That's fine with us. We really liked the area, we just did not like living in the smaller houses in the front where we new so many people. There was a lot of parties and a lot of drama that took place that we don't want to be near. This house is located in the larger part of the subdivision in the back, closer to Macon not Houston Levee. The house is a 3 bedroom with a dining room and a hearth room off of the kitchen. It's really nice with lots of extras. It has the master suite bath with his/hers closets. Lots of storage space, a PANTRY, wood floors, ceramic tile, good sized fenced back yard, brick lined flower beds to match the brick on the house, and tile back-splashes in the kitchen just to name a few. I absolutely love it. We are making an offer on it today or tomorrow. It will be a blessing for both sides if it works out b/c they will not have to deal with the stress of listing it and hoping it sells and we won't have to worry about where we are going to end up anymore. Anyway, thats our latest news. I'll post later to let everyone know if they accepted our offer.
