Laundry with Micah

Every time I go to get the clothes out of the dryer or leave his sight, Micah gets so upset...sometimes I just let him, and I try and get back quickly. Today I brought him with me and put him in the hamper with all the clothes. I think he enjoyed it and loved that mommy brought him along.

The Home Search

The cost of homes out here in the IE have dropped so much...actually down to a price we could possibly afford. This seriously came out of no where...I thought we wouldn't even consider buying for at least a few more years. Its exciting and a little scary at the same time. My free time is now spent looking on the internet daily for forclosed homes...there are 1000's or at least it seems. I have learned a ton though, making this my job the past month. The banks price them high at first then each month the number drops...I watch and get kind of excited when they are just a little above our price range. I have driven all over the valley searching for the perfect neighborhood and home...I have come to realize that the neighborhood we live in is great. Its close to the freeway and even a little closer to the OC which is good for Shane with school and family. There are some homes that have forclosed in a track near us, and we even put an offer on one but we didn't get it. Its all good though...I love that God is in total control and where he wants us is where our family will be. It will be hard to leave this very beautiful and peaceful place we have off of Loring Rd...I love our home, but if the Lord wills it, we know it would be wise of us to buy a home now while the prices are affordable for us.

Our Little Man

He is nine months now and is developing this little personality that has us smiling and laughing each day. He has learned how to clap, shake his head "no" and can say mama. One thing he has definitely mastered is getting pretty upset every time I leave the room. We'll get through it though...I know all babies are attatched to there mommies...its crazy though, I never new how extreme it would be. Anyways...Its awesome being his mommy :)
