We moved in on Monday and first thing Calie did was run upstairs. We were calling her and calling her and she would not come down. She eventually came running down the steps, we thought nothing of it. Well, little did we know, she was christening the house with her smelly poop! What a stinker, she is lucky that we really love her!

We had an eventful appointment at the doctor this week with Micah. Apparently Micah is too skinny and needs to gain some weight. The doctor said to me, "Don't you see his ribs? Only african babies are that skinny!" Yes, I am dead serious, she said those exact words to me. It took everything I had to hold back the tears. She was rude and not my style of pediatrician by any means. Needless to say, the first thing we did when we walked out of there was change Micah's pediatrician. Here's hoping our next experience is a little better! Thanks mom for the pep talk and reassuring me that I am not a terrible mom, even thousands of miles away, she still cheers me up!
Lesson Learned this week: You need to strategically plan when you do your shopping at the commissary here on base. Today I thought I would sneak in there at 5 (they close at 6) and pick a few things up for dinner. Oh no, the line was wrapped around all the way to the back of the store! I snuck in the 15 items or less self-checkout line with 19 items! I am a rebel, I know! In the back of my mind, I was freaking out, thinking that once I got to 15 items the machine would shut down or something crazy like that. I am my mother's daughter, I am so not a rule breaker : )
|This would be our master bedroom, who would have thought?|
|A few bumps and bruises along the way! We started boiling water with this pot without knowing it had gotten cracked during the move. This was the end result of the pot, along with water ALL over the stove. We needed a good laugh!|
|I think this is my new favorite spot in the house, so relaxing! Even with a construction fence outside, it is still a cozy place to sit!|

|I can't believe this scenery is all around us, I feel so blessed! If you look off in the distance, our house is located at the bottom of that hill or mountain, whatever you want to call it!|
