So Glad to be Home!!

I got back last night from a week in East Central Indiana surveying for work. I'm not going to mention specifics because I don't know who all may read my blog, but let's just say that this was the project from hell and I am SO GLAD to be home! I missed my baby and my husband terribly.
My brother and sister in law are also moving to Evansville this weekend, so it has been a busy week for sure.
We're leaving fairly soon for our anniversary trip to Asheville, NC. I cannot wait for our vacation!

Exciting Times

No I'm not pregnant with #2!

Alan's brother, Chris, his fiance, Megan and their son, Jayden, are moving to Evansville! Chris has been interviewing for different positions within Best Buy so he could transfer and they found out Friday that he got the position here in Evansville. I'm so excited! Chris and Megan are SO DIFFERENT than Alan and I, but Megan and I get along great and it will be so nice to have family here.  I think Alan will be glad to have his brother here to watch football without complaint from the peanut gallery (i.e. Me!). While we do have friends here, we don't get to see them all that often.
Their other option was BFE Arkansas, 11 hours away from Louisville (where Chris and Alan are from) and 7 from Cape Girardeau (where Megan is from). Having lived 10 hours away from family for the last three years, I know how hard it was going to be for them, especially with a kid.
Apparently, they want Chris to start within the next few weeks. Megan hasn't decided when she's moving yet, the last I had talked to her before they found out for sure, she had said maybe after her bridal showers in October. So, we might have Chris as a houseguest for a month or so, who knows.

Labor Day Weekend

Labor Day weekend Alan and I took a vacation day so we would be able to spend more time at the lake with my family. Despite only having one day (Saturday) of warm weather, we had a great time! I took Ewan swimming in the lake on Saturday and this time he seemed to enjoy it more. My mom, grandma and uncle came up Saturday evening and we enjoyed dinner with them.
Sunday it was fairly chilly and it rained off and on all day so we went to the outlet mall, where we got Ewan lots of fall/winter clothes, plus a few for me as well. My aunt and uncle came up and we had a cookout for dinner. By that point the sun had come out so we decided to take Ewan on his first boat ride. He LOATHED the life jacket, but he seemed to enjoy the boat ride and fell asleep. I was glad to go out in the boat (the only time this summer), but it was COLD!
On Monday, my friend Sarah and her son, Hunter, came up for the afternoon. Talk about birth control! He gave us a glimpse of our future in a few months (he's 18 months), running around getting into everything. Props to those who had 2 under 2, but there's no way I could do it!
Since we had taken Tuesday off, we spent the morning just lounging around before getting our stuff together and coming back to Evansville. Overall, it was a great weekend!

8 Months!

Ewan is now EIGHT MONTHS OLD!!! Where has the time gone? I cannot believe my baby boy is quickly turning into a toddler. I was looking at photos from when he was just a couple months old and it blows my mind how much he looks like a little boy and not a baby. I'm so not ready for him to be a toddler yet!

Things that Ewan is now doing:
army crawling everywhere, waving bye, playing peekaboo, saying ba ba and da da...there are so many other things that I can't even think of at the moment. He was 17 lbs 9,5oz at his last doctor's appointment and he has four teeth and is working on two more.

Such a big boy!
