7 Months & Family Update:

 Where is the time going that my sweet baby girl is already 7 months? What!? Still no teeth yet, but I imagine that will be happening any day now! She sits by herself and can sit herself up from laying. She learned to crawl! And she can now stand for several seconds at a time all by herself. She's become increasingly aware and playful with her sister, and even shows understanding like when David does this nighttime story where he tickles the girls, when she hears it start, she sits up and smiles real big in anticipation. It's really cool to watch and experience.

We celebrated birthdays,

and Sophia also attended the dentist for the first time and did a great job! 

She now is 16 lbs, and is moving into a convertible carseat!

Sophia has been working hard on schoolwork, between her workbooks and ABC Mouse, she is just blowing me away with her incredible intelligence. 

Rosalie has been eating all sorts of foods, including baby foods, puffs, pizza crusts, and

even cheese quesadillas.

Also....for the massive news that I've been holding out on sharing...David quit his job! He got a new job, and we are relocating to Austin, Texas! They flew him out a month or so ago, and made us an offer we just couldn't refuse. So two weekends ago, we got all four of us on a plane and flew to Austin to find a house! The girls did great with the trip! And in great news, despite the super short trip and timeline, we not only found a house, but came home with a key! Woo hoo! He is scheduled to start the new job on the 18th, so we will be saying goodbye to friends, family and Florida in five days. Luckily, my bestie Carrie, happened to have off, and is driving with me and the girls in the van while David takes the dogs in the moving truck! Sophia is super excited about our adventure and our new house in Texas.

We also got to participate in a photoshoot for an awesome project called the Honest Body Project. I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to join the project. Then tomorrow, we will be heading to participate in the NOH8 campaign! I'm especially excited and proud to be a part of it! 

We are obviously going to miss our family and friends very much, which does make this move hard, despite the amazing opportunity that this is for our family. It's an exciting, scary, wonderful opportunity. I think my biggest fear or concern is moreso Sophia missing her friends. She's made a lot of great friends here the past three years and has literally grown up with several of them. We will miss them soooo much! They are like family, and we will definitely be setting up FaceTime playdates, and hopefully will be able to convince some of them to come out for a visit. A few of those amazing friends banded together today to throw Sophia a going away party, which was just awesome. The kids had so much fun, and it meant the world to me. We are very blessed to have this kind of love surrounding us. 

Thanks so much you guys! We love you and will miss you sooooo much!!
