'We’re all a little weird. And life is weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutual weirdness and call it love.'

The biggest thing that has happened lately...well, we are under contract for a HOUSE!  So thrilled about it.  Of all the homes we looked at it was my second favorite, and there were things in it that I liked better than my top pick, so I guess it was kind of a toss up between the two.  Anyway we are all set to close by August 10th.  The home inspection is done and now we are just waiting on the appraisal.  I love the house and I am really excited to be living somewhere with more than one bedroom, a real kitchen, and a yard.  I am also glad that the whole searching for a home thing is done.  After you look at so many houses it starts to get old.  

Liam has also been doing great.  At his 4 month appointment he was just over 18 pounds so at 5 months who knows how much he weighs, but he is sticking right with his 95 percentile growth curve.  He also has two teeth now.  He had is first  at 4 months and his second came through a couple of weeks later.  His sleeping hasn't been the greatest.  He was doing great only waking up once at night but now we have taken a few steps back.  He is definitely too big for the bassinet that he sleeps in so hopefully he will do better when he actually gets a crib when we move.  Yes!

We also took Liam on his first plane ride over the 4th of July up to Washington.  He did really well on the way there and slept most of the way.  Then he got to experience his longest car ride of six hours as we drove to the Oregon coast, thankfully he slept for four hours of the car ride both ways.  We spent the week in a lovely beach-house with Jeff's family.  It was lots of fun, and we were even crazy enough to get in the water.

That has pretty much been our life.  I am so excited to move and get everything all in our own space!
