Life Lately

Nothing exciting is going on here. We still haven't sold our house. We lowered the price this week so hopefully we will get some action. It hasn't shown in over a month! I think we have pretty much decided to build here in Ruston. We found a neighborhood we really like (and a bonus is it is across from the peach orchard). There are only about 10 houses there right now. We have contacted a builder now we are just trying to find the perfect house plan. Our lease on our rent house is up in March so we figured if we started building next month it would be finished around March. We like Ruston I am just ready for us to be here and get involved in a church. Trey is still playing at Broadmoor until we sell our house so we all just go back to Shreveport every weekend. I am ready to make some mommy friends here. I did get good news today. When I dropped the girls off at MDO they told me they had an opening on Tuesday so now the girls can go two days a week.

The girls are doing well. Mallory is crawling all over the place. I can hardly keep up with her! She has 4 teeth and working on a few more. She talks (babbles) ALL of the time! She will be 8 months next week! Alyssa is starting to talk more - she is FINALLY calling me Mama! She has been calling me Dada forever because that was the one word she would say. She is now 18 1/2 months. Well, I better go and get some work done while I am childless!

Story Time

I love this picture! Trey was reading to the girls and I snuck a picture. I cut Trey's head off but I still love the picture. Life is busy here. We are living in a rent house in Ruston during the week and at our house in Shreveport on the weekends. I will be SO glad when we sell our house and find one in Ruston. Although the house we are renting is new and nice it is TINY!!!! Trey loves his new job. He is doing several different types of therapy and is really enjoying it. The girls will start Mother's Day Out one day a week this week. I am really looking forward to the couple of hours of alone time. I LOVE my girls but still need some me time! We have never done MDO so we are going to try it out. Well, I have loads of laundry to get done so I better get busy.

7 Months Old

Mallory is 7 months old! She is sitting up by herself and eating just about anything we give her. She is so much fun. She is not crawling yet but she is trying. Alyssa is 17 1/2 months. She just gets to be more and more fun. Her big thing right now is for us to sing to her. She gets us to start and when we stop she cries her eyes out!

We had a busy weekend. We moved to Ruston on Saturday morning. We found a house to rent and will be living there during the week and in Shreveport on the weekends until our house sells. We moved all of the big stuff on Saturday but have a trailer full of small stuff to unload today. We will not have internet until Thursday so I decided to post real quick while Trey was mowing. Trey's dad, Bryan and Christine (Bryan's girlfriend) all came in for the weekend. We had so much fun!!! We decided Christine was a keeper because she picked up on Settlers quickly and liked playing it. Settlers of Catan is a board game we LOVE to play! She also likes to play spades. Hopefully she will play with us again after Trey & I whooped her and Bryan!!! Trey starts his new job tomorrow. Well, I heard the lawnmower stop so I better get ready to head to Ruston.
