Finally HOME...

I feel like every dream I've ever had has come true...I have an amazing husband who I am madly in love with, a little boy who makes my heart sing, and we finally have our own home:) Don't get me wrong - I'm not saying my life is perfect, but I feel blessed beyond belief! I think that everything I have gone through has made me appreciate this time in my life even more! Here are a few pictures of our brand-new home:

Our living room


Gabe and I's bedroom
Max's bedroom
Our kitchen...still have to get some island stools, but you get the idea:)

We are settling in and getting used to our new home. Each evening we have two baby deer who come into the background to munch on clover. They are no longer scared of us...just curious. Max is absolutley loving his new bedroom and spends most of his time in there. It is adjustment for him to sleep on his own, but he's been doing a great job. I lay down with him each night until he falls asleep, then head to my bed. He will wake me up 1 to 2 times during the night and I go back in his room to lay down with him again until he falls asleep. It's been a lot easier than I thought it would be, so I'm not going to complain:)

Max has also started Preschool at Odon Christian Church and loves going twice a week! The teachers keep telling me that I have the most well-behaved little boy and that he does great with the other children. Last night as we laid in bed he started singing a song he learned yesterday at school - he really seems to enjoy learning, like his Mama!

Ok - that's enough updates for now! Hope everyone is having a great week!
