HUGE update

So Sorry that we havent updated the blog in almost 2 weeks. Its been busy and crazy and A LOT has happened since the last update. Well on Monday February 15 we decided to put an offer on the house that we LOVED! It was a little out of our budget but we didnt want anything else and it was just to perfect to pass up. We put our offer in and it came back a little more than what we wanted to pay BUT they were willing to pay all of our fees/closing costs and it was perfect for us. So we accepted the offer. YAY!!!!!! Then on Friday we had our inspection and it went great. There was nothing Majorly wrong like you see on the HGTV shows. We were very happy and so excited that we were able to see the house again. Of course we sat there planning where everything is going. Closing day is April 2nd (right before Jacob's Birthday). April 2nd can not come sooner. We are so excited! WE BOUGHT A HOUSE! YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY! No more rent. No more townhouse. No more little room for Jacob and DOlly to play. This house has a HUGE backyard for dolls and Jacob to play. It also has a deck. Its going to be a fun summer. We are going to do a little remodeling in the kitchen and paint the rooms. But other than that..its pretty much move in ready.
The house is in LaVergne which is about 15 minutes south of Nahsville and Yes I wil be looking for another job. We are not going to actually move into the house till the end of May. I want to finish school before we move so Jacob and I don't have to commute.
Another big change in our life right now is that Jacob is starting Daycare on Monday. We found an inhome daycare that cares for only 7 children. He will be the youngest but I know he will have a great time with other children.
A few pics of the house.

10 months! 10 months! 10 months!

Jacob is 10 Months old! WOW! He is walking and walking and walking. Its crazy how fast he walks. He really can balance himself well. He stared to play peek a boo a few days ago and I think he starting to clap a little bit. I am starting to plan his birthday party and I cant wait. Its going to be a lot of fun. Here are some 10 month pics.

Its been a while

A quick update on everything.

Jacob is walking EVERYWHERE! The only time he actually crawls is when he wants to pull up on something so he can take off. Actually he is starting to run a little bit. Its crazy. His two top teeth are coming in and I see two bumps next to those so we have a lot of teeth coming in. Poor baby. He is in a lot of pain. I am starting to plan Jacob's first birthday and so far its going to be a really cute party.

Nate got a job in Murfreesboro, Tn which is 30 miles south of Nashville but we are probably going to live in the Smyrna/La Vergne area. That is a lot closer to Nashville. We are going to buy a house. We went house hunting this past Saturday and found a house that we love but we are going back on Sat. to look at more. We hope to but an offer on a house in the next week to week and a half. I am going to commute to clarksville and work at West Creek until I find myself another job. I am def. Job hunting right now though.

Those are my quick updates. Pics, videos, and more updates to come very very soon. Keep checking back! :)

Going up!

Well, we put up the baby gate in front of the stairs as a precaution. Now it's there as a necessity. We knew Jacob was a climber, but we didn't really know if he would, or even could, go up the stairs.

We decided to find out...
