Yes I know I have not blogged in a long long time. I really have no excuses other then I am lazy. So just for Lisa Harland, I decided I would update my blog. The nice shout out she gave me on her blog has pushed me to write.
There has been a lot going on in my life. Virginia turned one years old September 22nd and we had a great party at my sister Lisa's house. It is hard to believe it has already been a year. Looking back on all of our photos it is crazy how much she has grown up. She is learning new things everyday. She is saying mama now. We are working on dada. She is getting closer to walking, but for right now she is happy with cruising. The most exciting news is that we went to RockHill with my parents and Susan and got her first pair of shoes. She was not a fan at all of the nice woman trying to measure her feet. She screamed the whole time until we got out of the store. We did end up walking out with some super cute white stride right shoes that have flowers on the sides. Maybe with new shoes she will take off running.
As far as Reiggin and I go we are attending a new church, Harbor PChurch in Mooresville. It has been nice getting back into the routine of going to church. Virginia is getting better about going to the nursery. She still cries as we are leaving, but the nice ladies say she is fine after about five minutes. Everyone has been super nice at the church. I really love the preacher and how friendly he is. I am hoping to find a good small group to start to attend.
Reiggin has moved to a new store in Mooresville on Brawley School road. I am glad he is back down in Mooresville and not up in Hickory. He seems to be liking the new store. He has been working extra hard lately, but that's just Walgreens during the holidays.
I am still loving our new house. It is so quiet and our land lord is perfect. I will be sad to have to leave whenever the day comes that Reiggin gets his own store.
Like Lisa I am glad to see Fall is here and the weather is slowly getting colder. I do enjoy wearing jeans and a long sleeve shirt. We will see how well we stay warm in our house. But so far the weather has made for some great blanket and movie time on the couch.
As far as entertainment in the future. I am excited to say we have tickets to The Avett Brother's new years eve show in Asheville. Now we just have to find someone to keep Virginia over night. We would love to be able to go to the show and stay the night in Asheville. I would probably not know what to do with myself if I actually had a night where I didn't have to get up every three hours. But first we have to get Virginia ready.
My goal with Virginia is to get her sleeping though the night. Hopefully soon she will start to like the taste of milk. Virginia did have her first year check up and passed with flying colors. She is 20lbs and 29in. tall. It was pretty sad she ended up having to get 4 shots and blood work done that day. That was not a fun visit. Also Virginia is moving up to a front facing car seat. Oh yeah my baby girl is growing up.
Also a side note is that my mom is on Facebook. Yes Myra Ford has taken the jump and joined Facebook. With a little help from me mom decided to join so she can see all the awesome pictures that Susan and I post. I tend to put pictures up faster on Facebook then I do on my blog. Now we just have to get Lisa to join the band wagon and get on Facebook. It is much better then Twitter. There is all kinds of stuff to do on Facebook. I tend to spend all my time playing games. Yes I am very addicted to all the games on Facebook. I just can't say no to a good computer game. Lately I have been spending all my time playing Cafe World and another computer game called Evony.
Well I think that catches everyone up. I know this blog post has been all over the place. So maybe in the future I will try to post more regularly. Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the nice fall weather.
