We have been packing and packing and I feel like we have so much left! We have 1 week to get everything else done before we load up the truck and head to Pensacola. With Josiah's help we are getting so much more stuff done. (NOT) This little guy is getting into everything! I think his first word is probably going to be "No" because that is what I feel like I am telling him constantly. Josh's dad has been here since Friday and then my aunt and uncle are coming to help on Monday!

Habakkuk 2:3

"For the revelation waits an appointed time;
it speaks of the end and will not prove false.
Though it linger, wait for it;
it will certainly come and not delay."

I got an email today with this verse. I am so glad I was reminded that every dream that is in my heart God put it there and He has every intention of bringing it to pass. Even if it doesn't happen when I want it to happen doesn't mean that it's not going to happen. It will happen on God's time and that is always Perfect timing! Like I always say...He is awesome and amazes me every single day!

After almost 4 years we are making it back to Pensacola!! Josh and I had just started talking/praying about moving home. We wanted to move back so Josiah could grow up with family around! A few weeks ago out of the blue Josh got a call from his friend asking for his resume and here we are moving in just 2 weeks! I can't believe it! I am so excited, but also sad at the same time! I love it here, we have made so many great friends and we have a great Church that we love! But God has made a new chapter in our life and I can't wait to see what the future holds. We are having to make some sacrifices to move back, but it will be well worth it!

We have 2 weeks to pack up everything and to get our house rented. I have been so spoiled in the past with Josh's company always sending us movers to pack, so it should be interesting doing it ourselves this time (of course with lots of family and friends).

I am so excited to see what God has in store for our family! Life is good!

"Those moms"

It is funny how things change once you have a baby. Before Josiah I would go to the grocery store and see parents hand their kids something to eat that they had not purchased yet. Why this bothered me I do NOT know...but it did. I mean they were going to most likely pay for it, but it still bothered me. I became one of "those moms". I was in the baby isle buying some baby formula, baby food, and Gerber snacks for Josiah and he saw me pick up the Gerber lil' crunchies off of the shelf and he started to throw a fit because he wanted some of them. (I usually keep some in the diaper bag, but I used the last bit of them yesterday) It amazed me that he knew what they were and he knew he wanted some of them. So I gave in and gave him some! Oh how things change!


Monday was such a pretty day! Josiah and I played outside majority of the day! He loved it! I can't wait for the Spring/Summer to get here so we can play outside more often!

Hanging outside, exploring everything

Josiah loves both of our dogs, but I think Mali is his favorite. I sometimes feel bad for her because Josiah chases her all over the house and steals her toys and tries to eat them.

Yesterday was another pretty day! We hung outside a little bit and then we went up to the outlet mall with my neighbor/friend and her little boy! I love going up there but I usually spend WAY too much money (on Josiah). But I didn't buy anything yesterday! We got back from the outlet mall and just hung out until Josh got home.

My current obsession: Looking for stuff for Josiah's 1st birthday party. I can't believe in 4 months Josiah will be one already! I know it's a little early to start looking around, but I want it to be perfect! It amazes me how creative some people are!

Well, it has been raining all morning :( and is suppose to rain the rest of the week. I have to go to Walmart to get some stuff to cook for Church tonight, but other than that we are staying inside on this nasty day.

Josiah's Granny, Pop-Up, and Uncle Bobby came to visit us on Friday! We really didn't do too much - Saturday we drove around to a new town, we went to an antique shop, and then went and ate at Chili's! When we got home from their mom and I went to the Outlet Mall to the Carter's Outlet and got Josiah 6 new outfits for the summer! Sunday we hung around and cleaned while they played with Josiah. You can't really tell, but Josiah has 2 teeth now! Those lil' jokers are SHARP!

Picture post

I don't really have much to talk about - life has been crazy this past week! But here are some pictures... look at that sweet face!!! I just love him to death!!!

This is how I have been finding Josiah after naps! He is pulling up on everything..Crib, tables, chairs, cabinets, TV stand...i mean everything!!!

He gets so excited when Josh or I have a cup with water in it. He thinks he is a big boy and he loves to drink out of it. He throws a temper tantrum if we don't let him have some. (He is NOT spoiled I promise! haha)

He is crawling all over the place, but he would rather us hold his hands so he can "walk" everywhere.

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,' declares the LORD. 'As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8-9)

Just wanted to share this verse..LOVE IT!

11 1/2

I woke up Sunday night around 1:15 looked into the baby monitor and saw a sleeping baby! I fell back asleep and didn't wake up again until 6:00! Josiah had slept from 6:30 pm to 6:00 am!!!!! Hallelujah!!!!!!! I was wondering if he slept so good because he was so tired from our trip to Pensacola, but he slept almost just as good last night. He woke up at 2:15 and I looked into the monitor and saw him searching for his binky. He couldn't find it so I ran upstairs and gave him it and he went right back to sleep!!! Maybe this is a new beginning to better sleeping! I sure hope so!

This weekend we were in Pensacola visiting friends and family! We had a great time, but it just goes by way too fast!
Josiah loved playing at Granny and Pop-Ups back door
Friday we went to Lindsay's dad's baseball game just so Josiah could get his picture taken with Mr. Bill. After the game I went to eat at Sonny's with Lindsay, Crystal and Rachel!!
Auntie Lu Lu was letting Josiah drive (not really!)
Granny and Josiah were playing
Saturday night Josh and I went out on a date! We just went to Buffalo Wild Wings and then got some ice cream and went and hung out with some friends! We had so much fun and can't wait to go back in a month for Amber's Shower!
