Any 5 month old babies in the house??!!

Nevaeh was 5 months old yesterday!

With J, I wasn't great at keeping a daily journal of her milestones. Oh, I would write down big ones, like first tooth, crawling, walking, things like that, but not the everyday little things.

So I need your help here. Anyone with a baby that is around the 5 month old mark, what are they up to? I know each babe is different, but I just want a bit of an idea of what Nev may be up to over in Ethiopia. I totally forget what J was doing at this stage! (All my sentimental things are packed, so I don't even have any reference to pull from!) Are they rolling over, laughing, things like that. I want to try to get to know Nev, even though we're not with her in person.

Thanks guys, I know you will pull thru for me here!

Post are a little slow around here. Things are a bit crazy, but thought I would give you a little update on what's up.

We've moved! Back to the farm house that I grew up in. We have been so looking forward to this for awhile now, and it's actually happened. My mom built a house in town in order for us to move out to the farm. Since we full time farm, and have cattle it made the most sense.

So much of my summer included packing, packing and more PACKING. Really, if I see another box or have to haul loads back and forth, I think I will have a break down! It was pretty overwhelming, but worth it. How do you help someone pack up a house that she had lived in for 45ish years. The burning barrel was going non stop it seemed! And let me tell you, we are going to have one heck of a garage sale soon! (the money raised will go to a project when we go over to Ethiopia.) It was emotionally hard for my mom at some times, but we made it through. I am so thankful to be here.

The day we actually moved was about 1 1/2 weeks ago. Adam came in to the old house and said "we're caught up combining and I have the day to move. Let's do it!!!" Uhhh, ok. It was a hectic day, but we got most things out here.

It wasn't until I was driving to the farm with the last load, while driving past the cemetery that my dad is buried at, (only about 1 mile from our farm) that it hit me. The only reason we were blessed to be able to move to the farm house was because he was gone. If he was still alive, we would not be moving. As I stopped by the grave, and had a huge bawl, I remembered how much I miss my dad.

The first night even though I was dog tired, I was wound up. It was a little weird sleeping in mom and dad's room. But such is life.

Now I am UNpacking, Unpacking and more UNPACKING!!! Once I find my camera I will post some pics of our new home.

Oh and then on top of all the other stress of moving, we got a puppy!! She is cute, and did well with the transition. But really, let's just add more to the pot!

Until a few more boxes are unpacked.....
