80 degree January, I'll take it

We moved into my in-laws house with the intention of taking over their house for a mere month or 2, at most 3. Here we are 6 months later still hogging up their house. We are so fortunate for their generosity as they've shared their space and endured our noise and clutter.

We are happy to report 2013 looks like it'll be giving us a day....maybe in the near future. We have been waiting, some days more patiently than others, to close on the ridiculous short sale we 1st viewed back in August.

In the meantime, we are doing our best to enjoy these beautiful 80 degree January days, filling our weekends with yard work, afternoons at the park, and just being silly.
 Can you believe my sweet little baby boy is going to be 1 in one short month?!? 
I know, neither can I. He has been doing his best to practice walking and is loving his towards freedom. Thomas has also been exploring with new foods and has now kicked baby food at daycare and eats all the big kid foods. He has recently developed an overwhelming love for his grandma and grandpa and WILL NOT stand to see them walk into the room and not pick him up. He is funny, happy, and is already proving to be our littlest dare devil.

          Mai had her 1st dentist appointment this past week and was such a big girl. She told all her friends at daycare "The dentist is SOOO MUCH FUN!" as she proudly showcased her special bag of tricks (toothbrush, floss, all the usuals that excite a 2 year old). She has also come into her own at school. She talks to the other kids and reminds them of all the rules "Did you hear Ms. Brenda? She said go clean up home living?" and she has even taken one of the younger girls under her wing and serves as her speaker and "big sister type". We are so proud of our confident, enthusiastic, and maybe a tad bossy little girl. She spent several days of the past week testing out the 3s room for her transition coming so soon. 3?! Again, how did this happen so quickly?
