Preston's new discoveries

Not having the Internet really stinks. I hate that I can't blog all of the time. There have been big things going on here and I haven't been able to share them. And not only that, is that I can't post pictures or videos right now. (Ugh)!

Preston said his first word last Thursday! He said "Dada," and he says it all the time! It's so cute! The way he rolls his tongue when he says it is so funny! As soon as I can post a video of him saying it I will!

Preston also has been trying to walk, so yesterday we went and got him one of those push toys. He's not quite sure how to use it, but when he can get it going he's on the move! I wonder if he'll thin down! He is so fat right now! He's not growing taller, he's just getting wider!

This last weekend we were fortunate enough to go to Utah and see some friends of ours have their little boy sealed to them! I can't tell what an experience that was for me. Thank you so much Lindstroms for inviting us to your special event. It was awesome!

That's about all that's going on here right now. Sorry for no pictures, but as soon as I can, you'll have lots to look at!

fun pictures

Just some fun pictures of the boys enjoying their time at the pool! By the way, yesterday it got to 125 degrees here. Yeah, HOT!

Drew, testing out his new goggles. And, we were able to get him to wear his water wings instead of his life jacket! (This is a big deal)! Now he only wants to wear the water wings because now he can stick his head under the water better!

Drew's new goggles! He loves them!

Preston's first hair cut. He did a super job! But he did want to look at the clippers pretty much the entire time!
After the hair cut!
Loves to pull himself up on things.

His favorite room in the house...the laundry room. I have no idea why either. But whenever the door is open, there he goes!

Update #2

Well, Doug started his job last week and is loving it, and his boss loves having him there. Doug is the only one in the office that speaks Spanish and since they have a ton of Spanish speaking patients, he gets a lot of work!

He's been spending his time between the two offices, plus doing home health. They want him to get his Arizona license so that he can go see patients in Arizona. (Arizona is right next door...seriously). They have quite a few patients that live in the Mesquite part of Arizona.

The boys and I spend practically every day at the pool. In fact, last Saturday, we were able to go and spend some swimming time with some family in St. George. Drew had such a great time with his buddies and talks about them constantly! (Thanks Cavaness' for having us over)!

Everything here is so close. It takes Doug literally two minutes to get to work. He plans to ride his bike there on days that aren't so hot! Wal-Mart is also a two minute drive away and it's open 24 hours. Which helped us a ton when we first got here. We had to buy a couple of fans for the bedrooms!

Anyway, that's the update so far. I have a really cute video of Drew tickling Preston and I'll put it on here as soon as I can get it to load.

OH!! I can't believe I haven't posted about this yet. Preston is crawling and has been for a while now. He's pulling himself up onto things now...I fear he's going to be a walker soon. (Lord help us!) And he now has 6 teeth. It makes his smile the funniest looking smile ever! So that's that.

OK, so I know it's been forever since I posted last. Reason being...we have no Internet. So I'll post whenever I can, which means, whenever I can get myself to the library.

We are now in Mesquite, NV...yay!! Doug is now a licensed Physical Therapist and starts his job tomorrow! It's a day we have been anxiously waiting for. We are renting a condo from our realtor and trying to get ourselves settled. We know we will only be here in the condo for a couple of months so we don't want to unpack everything. So basically, we have all our kitchen stuff and clothes unpacked.

We just spent the fourth of July weekend in Bryce Canyon for a family reunion on Doug's side. What a beautiful place! Drew was able to hike with Doug into the basin, while Preston and I hiked the rim. We had a great time and can't wait to go again.

I sure hope it won't be forever until I post again. We are here in Nevada and are happy to get our lives back in order...for a little while at least! A HUGE thank you to all who helped us get here, and who so graciously watched Drew for us while Doug and I were moving. We love you and can't wait to see you again!
