We're in!

We're in our house and Will is still in utero, so it's all good. I am exhausted. This is probably the longest I have sat down since last Friday morning. I do not know what I would have done without my parents. They have been amazing doing everything from running errands, to watching Bennett, unpacking boxes, unloading cars... I could go on and on. So, a HUGE shout out and thank you to my parents. This would have been nearly impossible without them.

We love our new house and I finally feel at home in Kansas. I will post pictures as soon as I can, but all I can say is that I have a nursery! Will can come any day now, but I hope he will wait the expected four more weeks.

Tonight, to give us a break, my friends Mary and Kelsey came over to baby-sit so Rob and I could go out with my parents and have a nice dinner without a high chair and fruit snacks. After Bennett went to bed, they painted my living room. How amazing is that? I mean, seriously. Who does that?

And Bennett has hung in there like a champ. She has definitely been more clingy this week and hates it when I walk out of a room, but she's adjusting well. Her vocab is getting larger and larger every day. She will repeat nearly every sound you say and her new words are, "Brother Will." She has also learned , "No." But she drags it out and says, "noooo-ooo-ooo." But then she will laugh at you and just say, "Yess-ah." The child is clearly confused. AND she is walking a whole lot more. She's not fully there yet, but she will take 5-6 steps constantly and consistently. We're keeping our fingers crossed.

Thanks for all your prayers. This has been an insane ride and it's about to get a whole lot crazier, but at least we feel settled and ready for our next adventure.
