family family family

We've been busy this week! Since last Friday, we have been in Raleigh, Greenville, and Charleston! We are blessed with a BIG family. For those of you who care (aka our family) here's some pictures from our time together!

Raleigh, NC

Henry's G-mama

Hank's mom, Sally's side of the family

Henry's great-grandmother, Gannie

Greenville, NC

Hank's Dad, Sam's side of the family

Henry's cousins, Holland (Woody)and Jackson (Buzz Lightyear). Toy Story is their favorite movie! Holland has named everyone in the family with characters from the movie. Hank, Henry, and I are the aliens:)

David, Hank's brother and Pop

Jackson and Henry were so cute together! They would growl at each other.

Henry and Bo

Charleston, SC

Henry learning how to share. (look closely and they are sharing "joseph")

Griffin and Henry with Gigi. I hate that I didn't get any pictures of Oliver and Katie! We only got to be with them for a day!

the move and 5 months

This past month has been crazy, thus the lack of blog posts. Also, I haven't really processed the move yet which makes me not want to say anything at all. It's no secret that saying goodbye to Auburn has been hard on me, so for this internal processor, it may take a while. There is so much to say. From our dear friends giving us a goodbye party, to the Auburn team helping us move on one end and the Lifelines team on the other, to closing up our first house where we brought our firstborn son home for the first time, a lot has gone on the past two weeks.

I feel like I'm going to learn a lot of lessons about where my identity is found. There is something about moving to a place where I don't know anyone and people don't know me that has started that ball rolling:)

The good news is that the move is over! I had been dreading saying goodbye, driving the 12+ hours with Henry, and unpacking. Two of the three are done and we are about 80% unpacked!

Henry's 6 month bd is tomorrow, so i'll post some 5 month pictures while I can:) This month he experienced his first haircut! I hated to cut it, but it HAD to be done. Notice how long it had gotten in the back.
