Virginia So Far

We have been here for over two weeks and I finally feel like we are settling in. We drove to Williamsburg on Saturday to spend the day with our next door neighbors from Germany. It was great to see Amanda, TJ and Jack again and meet little Henry. Maggie had so much fun playing with the boys and they were so sweet with her. We also invested in some baby safety devices over the weekend in an attempt to baby proof our new house. Maggie learned how to climb stairs after about 2 days here and now that is all she wants to do. She is totally off baby food and only wants to eat what we are having. She is also all about feeding herself and thus mealtimes are especially messy...but hilarious. She amazes me everyday with something new she has figured out. She likes to "brush" her hair with the baby brush and likes to help me sort the laundry. Just the other day she rummaged through the basket of clean clothes to find two red socks, put them together and handed them to me. I know all parents think their kids are smart but...she is really smart!! We went to checked out a new church yesterday and I think it will be a good fit for us. As soon as Maggie is walking she can go to the nursery which is also great!

Jack wanted to help give Maggie her bottle!

I miss you guys so much! I miss my Maggie, too! She already looks so much older, Erin. How are her words coming? Walking?

She is walking across the room with her push car but not taking any steps alone yet. She makes all kinds of noises but my favorite is "ohhh" (sounds like whoa) whenever something funny happens! She is also saying ma ma ma alot-yeah!!

How great you could all meet up again. I can't believe how different Jack looks from when I last saw him. Sounds like you all had fun!
