I have been thinking about posting for a ong time, but as with every other overdue post, life got in the way. I really am very envious of the women whos blogs I follow that are able to post every few days or so- I have no idea how they do it! I haven't posted since December, and here it is, almost February!
Starting where we left off... as you know, Harris' birthday party was a success! 5 Days later, on Christmas day, we hopped on a plane to Miami. Harris had a cold the entire trip, but he was still as cute as a button! We arrived in Miami in the evening, and the next morning, we hopped on a 3 Day Cruise to the Bahamas! It was Harris and my first cruise, and everyone had a blast! He seemed to highly enjoy the sand under his feet and the wind in his hair!

After the Bahamas, it was back to Grammy's house for 4 more days in sunny Miami!
Here is a cute little clip of Harris having some play time at a little spray park by grammy's house. Pardon my boobage in this video- just pay attention to the little cutie who is almost walking!

When we returned from FL, we came to 2 very big "green lights" in our life. I won't go into details about either green light, but those 2 green lights mean 2 very big things for us- the sale of our current house that leads to the purchase of a new house, AND it is time for IVF!

We have been hopping and bopping around our house, trying to pare down our belongings, and put stuff into boxes for storage in order to show the house. Our goal is to put our house on the market in March. At this point, that goal is very attainable. We will need to sell our current house in order to buy a new house, and we are fully aware that this method may put us in an extended stay or month to month rental for a while. We are fine with that!

Then, we came to the IVF green light! Our appointment is actually today at 2pm. At this appointment, we will make a game plan and they will most likely prescribe birth control pills for me for the first leg of the 2 cycle journey! Wahoo! There is nothing like a doctor's appointment on your calendar to help things sink in!!

Oh, and I almost forgot the title of this post! Harris is using his first sign- MORE! more kisses, more hugs, more play, more sleep, more applesauce.... I love it!


  1. congrats on the 2 green lights! sounds like you guys have some fun in store over the next few months!

    was the water park that you guys went to pinecrest gardens? we go to miami often, my folks live there too and we take ryan to pinecrest gardens everytime we're there, she loves it!

    congrats on your first cruise! i've been on 4 but we took a week long one over the summer for our daughter's first and she loved it, still talks about it 7 months later. i'm guessing it will be something we do for most family vacation going forward, such a convenient way to travel with kids.

  2. Yay for both green lights. I'd love to talk Seattle real estate with you as we're planning on moving this year too. Hope the doctor's appointment goes well. Say hi to your family from me!

  3. wow -- so much happening! love seeing harris on his cute little feet, and when did he do all that hair-growing? so very cute. house- looking, yum. and moving to IVF, yea. just good to get another glimpse of things in the FSL family. :)

  4. AMY- that was indeed Pinecrest Gardens!

    JOY- let's make a date!

    M.- tell me about the hair right?! I was dying to trim it but Grammy made me wait until after we got back from Florida!

  5. yay for the 2 green lights! awesome!

    i can't wait to hear more!


You know I love to hear from you- thanks for leaving a comment!
