Almost 14 Months!

It's been a while since I did an update.  As usual, life has been incredibly busy.  Lola turned a year old on May 20 and then we had her birthday party in Canton on May 25th. A special thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate.  I posted some pictures on Facebook, but I think this one is really cute...

 This look pretty much sums up her attitude toward the cupcake. She just didn't know what to think of it.  After spending some time squishing it around, she finally took some bites.  In all honesty, it was a little underwhelming.  I thought she would just dive right in, but she had to give it some serious inspection first.  The what-in-the-world-is-this-thing attitude was just as funny in its own way and is completely her attitude toward anything and everything.  She's a go-getter, but she loves to inspect and explore.  

A little over two weeks ago, Lola started walking.  She loves it and has even attempted running.  Unfortunately, her little legs can't keep up with the rest of her body and she has a good-sized, bruised lip to prove it.  This past week she started getting really silly and started dancing.  She's a handful, but we have SO MUCH FUN!  There's never really a dull moment around Lola, that's for sure!

I'm not sure who we've told and who we haven't, but we are moving!  We are staying in the Austin area, but are looking for about 3-5 acres.  We have found some houses we like, but nothing that says "home" to us.  I have faith we will find something, although we might have to rent a house for a while until we do because our home is currently under contract.  The option period ends soon, so I suppose it's not 100% yet.  The big issue is getting the foundation repaired, so I hope that doesn't scare away the buyers.  Obviously we are responsible for those repairs either way, so I'm not looking forward to dealing with a 14-month old while that takes place.  Lola just loves to unpack boxes that have been packed up.  She always finds something to get into and rearrange it how she sees fit :)

All is well over here, or the way I see it, as well as it could be.  Please keep our family in your prayers.  The home selling and buying process has been a little stressful.  I'm not sure how often we'll get "back home" to visit until all of this is complete.  It takes a lot of energy to pack, watch Lola and keep the house "show ready".  When the weekend rolls around, all we want to do is sleep!  Hopefully the Fall will bring us a renewed sense of energy and a new home!
