A few updates...

What's been going on in our house lately...

1. Grayson has officially been sleeping in his BIG BOY BED consistently for 3 weeks now! His crib has been moved out of his room and he's been doing a great job at sleeping in the bed. Every morning when he wakes up, he says, "Yay, Grayson! Big boy bed!!!". So cute!!!!

2. Emma Claire's "little cold" turned into RSV and an ear infection, so she is a snotty, wheezing, coughing MESS. Poor baby can't breathe, can't sleep, and just feels yucky. It's been one of those weeks where Ben and I are just completely drained from lack of sleep and wishing we could do more to make her feel better. Pray that she feels better soon!

3. EXCITING NEWS.....we have a contract on our house!!! We put it on the market last January and took it off of the market three weeks ago after 11 months of it not selling. A couple of weeks ago we had our friend Christie's younger brother Graham and his wife Elizabeth over for dinner and the next day they surprised us by calling and saying that they were interested in buying our house! One thing led to another, and as of Thursday, the contract is signed!! It's funny how things work out sometimes---we spent 11 months keeping the house clean at all times, evacuating at the last minute for endless amounts of showings, even having an open house when Emma Claire was a week old....and all it took was for us to take it OFF the market. Go figure! :) We are thrilled for Graham and Elizabeth and know that they will love living here as much as we have. NOW we are waiting to hear back from the people whose house we made an offer on yesterday....stay tuned for updates!

OMG- my 5 month old finished with RSV about 2 weeks ago. Same thing-a cold that lingered on and on and I finally coulnd't take the sleeplessness anymore and took him in. Ugh. Hang in there!

Congrats on the house - that's amazing that is what it took. A good friend's baby in Vermont (3 months old) is in the hospital w/RSV right now -- ack! I guess it's going around?! Hope she's feeling better soon!

Poor Emma Claire! RSV is tough. I hope you all recover soon. A big fat YAY to getting a contract on your house? Do you have any place to go to? Anywhere in mind?
