What a Week!

Like the title says...WHAT A WEEK!!!  As if one life change isn't enough (and yes, I mean the baby) we are going to through a few more in the next few months.  Why?  Because that's the Bailey way we do things.  Let's make a list, shall we?
1.) baby
2.)quit job
3.)sell house extremely fast
4.)move to Washington DC for a year
5.)E goes BACK to school...yes...Again!!!

Numbers 3-5 were all introduced to us on Thursday of last week.  So my realtor is coming over today to go through the house with me and I have been breaking my back to get things ready...Why?  Oh yeah...did I mention that E had to go out of town for a week?  Yes, that's me and baby all by ourselves.  Luckily I have a friend coming into town to stay with me for the rest of the week but regardless, there's still alot of work left to be done at home.  I am feeling a bit overwhelmed.  

Well, here is Rachel this week.  She turned 4 weeks.  It's amazing how so much has changed already.  She can hold her head up and loves to do it, she held on to a rattle and shook it, we have seen several grins but can't figure out what she is so excited about (a window, the ceiling fan, gas...you never know), she is running errands with mom nicely, she is taking formula when I need her to if we are out in public on the go, ...lots of strides are being made.

She went to Ladies Lunch this week with me and a few friends so she got 2 new dresses and this is one of them. 
I always forget to do tummy time with her and when I remember, she always does something different.  This time, she laid on her belly and hum-sighed for about 2 minutes until she was ready to move onto something else.

Wow! What a list of life changing things. Good luck with the move (its too bad that you did all those changes in the house too) and being by yourself with Rachel (even though your friend is coming to stay, it'll be different). Keep us posted!

Wow! So much is going on! When I heard a hint that you might be moving I was selfishly hoping you would be moving back to Huntsville! But DC will certainly be exciting.

So much work on your house and your moving already!?! Hopefully all that work will pay off nicely. :)

I'm glad you are enjoying your time with Rachel. Can't wait to meet her one day!!
