Flying with the Dove
& Her Loves

It sure has been a while...

Life as a new mom, in a new town, with a new job, has been quite a challenge and has kept me very busy. Grey is 6 and 1/2 months now and growing so quickly! He scoot/crawls everywhere, has one bottom tooth sticking out, and drools everywhere!! He is such a calm, sweet boy and smiles all day long, unless he is meeting someone new, then he just stares at them with big eyes. He also hates Walmart. It is the goofiest thing! Every time I bring him in there he gets this mad face and won't crack a smile for anything! Whenever he is mad we say, "oh he is just doing his Walmart face." He is such a goofball.

I am loving my new job and I work with really great people. I am not in love with my long commute though, I get way too sleepy driving at 4 AM. Especially now that Grey decides to crawl and play at all hours of the night. Nate is always cooking new things, yesterday was pita bread and it was pretty awesome. I told him he must be Greek or something because it was so good. He looked at me and said, "I don't even know one word in Greek." I said, "Baklava?" Yeah I am a bright one sometimes...

I took an overnight trip home to see the family and it was so great to see them. It is kind of a bummer when you are second fiddle to your baby though. Right when I walked in everyone ran to Grey! I just stood there, "Hey guys, missed ya!" and everyone was all too consumed with chubby cheeks and a blonde mohawk. I am officially chopped liver... Ha it's ok, I guess I have already had my chubby cheeked adorable time in my life and I should let others have the stage.
