Week by iPhone

So, I'm jumping on the bandwagon, even if I took a paltry 6 pictures this week.  And...ok, some of them are really weird.  Anyway.  Here they are:

These are in reverse order, so starting in the bottom right: 1) Robby giving me some attitude while reciting his favorite book, 2) Ah, work conference calls, On to Father's Day: 3) Play place at the mall while dad shops for shoes, 4) Um...this is out of order.  My parents were off looking at houses and had Robby with them, and I took a picture of the kitchen.  Go figure.  5) We were on our way to "Day out with Thomas" and Robby had just seen Thomas out the window.  He was PSYCHED.  6) Daddy and Robby riding Thomas.

Maybe I'll get better at this next week.  But, even if I don't, you should check out other people who are fabulous over at Living Like the King's Week by iPhone Blog Hop.

Random updates

Since I never write, I will do a brief rundown on all our updates.

I have been with the new company for 4 months.  I like the job, though it's very busy and the hour+ commute is really hard on me. I miss the time with my family a lot. Therefore, I'm pretty psyched about:

We sold our house after 2 days on the market. That fell through after inspection (though nothing was wrong).  We had to go back on the market for 2 HOURS.  We have ended up SUBSTANTIALLY ahead with the 2nd buyers. Worked out well.  It took us awhile, but we finally found a house, and are closing on both on the same day in about a month. We're actually downsizing a little, but its beautiful, in a great school district, on a huge lot, and should cut my commute down to around 40 minutes.  So, yay!

He seems so big!  He talks well, "gets" more and more, and has so little "baby" left.  Right now he is obsessed with Chicken Run, the pool, his truck book, Mater, and ice cream.  It's adorable that he says, "My do it."  Although he has started picking up on using "I" instead. It's a little sad how fast he learns  and grows up. He also has started saying, "Football, baby!" Which is hilarious and we have no idea where he got it.

We went to a 2 year old birthday party today, I've been working on learning to drive stick (and am almost ready to do the commute!), we gave up on potty training after 2 weeks in underwear (he never had a pee accident at school, but there's another kind ;)), we've been doing a lot of packing, and hoo-wee we're just tired. I've been pretending I'm going to get back into shape, but I don't run more than once a week, and, folks, it's getting necessary. Trying.

Well, that's about that in 30 seconds or less.
