Wow, long time no chatty...

I won't even make any excuses. I'm a bad blogger. lol

Now that that's done with, let's see what I've been up to. First of all, we're moving north...not that far north--just up to the Huntsville/Madison area. Still, Chris says that it's like a whole different world up there and that it's much more like Raleigh was. YAY! :) We close on the new house on Thursday and we're moving up on July 5th. Our Montgomery house is on the market (has been for a little over a week now), so we're hoping that it sells quickly. We've had a couple of showings and one potential buyer who was choosing between our house and a different one (they chose the other one), so hopefully it will all go smoothly. We'll see...

Other news...Maggie's on her second round of swimming lessons. This is the second week of her second set of lessons and she's made SO much progress. She started off being a little nervous about the water, though she'd put her face in okay. Today we took the girls to the pool for the afternoon and she actually was able to swim about 4 feet (no swimmie wings or float belt or helping hands!!) with her face under the water the whole time! Go Maggie!!

Katie is trying SO hard to crawl. She's getting up on her hands and knees and rocking back and forth like crazy. Sometimes she just rocks and then flops right back on the floor. Other times she rocks herself backwards. About a quarter of the time, though, she actually lurches forwards! :) She's so funny. She'll get there soon, I'm sure. She's so dang happy all the time, even right now when she's cutting more teeth. I felt the third one (one of her top canines) poking through today, and the other canine should be through in the next couple of days.

Let's see, what else? Oh, Chris has been working up in Huntsville for a month now and living out of a suitcase in the Holiday Inn there. He's also been to Taiwan, which was a cool experience for him. He came home this weekend and the girls (and me) were so so happy to see him. He pretty much spent the whole weekend with the girls so I'm sure he's exhausted, but it was really good for them. Tonight before bed, Maggie even asked him to read a story to her, which is out of the norm--that's been my job for the last 10 months or so. We enjoyed having Daddy back here for a couple of days. :)

I've been busy, too, but I'm going to tie up this post and be back in a second with a new post about what I've been doing. :) Thanks for reading if you've gotten this far!
