Growing up







MC is growing up overnight it seems. She is learning to stack and build blocks and she even put a puzzle together all by herself! We are making SLOW progress with food, but at least it's progress. She gave me the best Christmas gift ever by letting me sleep late and then eating my breakfast casserole! We even started planning her "big girl" room upstairs. I was reminded yesterday that the guest bed was a DOUBLE bed...so MC will inherit that one even though she's nowhere close to getting in it. And she is experimenting with her new potty seat!

We had a great Christmas! MC loves all her toys (even though all of them are not out of their boxes yet...we're taking it one day at a time). A tornado hit my house sometime this week and I have been cooking and cleaning ever since. Seriously, I can't find the floor of my living room or the bottom of my kitchen sink. Matt and I did manage to sneak away for a minute to go see the movie 4 Christmases. I saw an interview with Reese Witherspoon and she said "Escape from your Christmas chaos to our Christmas chaos and just have fun!" Very cute movie. We took a trip to Bay Springs today to visit the Miley extended family. It was great to visit with Matt's cousins and their kids (MC's 2nd or 3rd cousins???).

Quitting my job was weird. My boss took it WAY better than I expected. I ended up having to work with him for 2 straight days after Monday. He kept smiling and telling me I was doing it for the right reasons and he understood. After about the 10th joke, I realized...'he doesn't take me seriously!' The other pharmacist on duty told me he was in denial. Possibly. He's leaving me on staff as "active" so I can help out if I want to. But his response made it much easier for me. I can make jokes and not cry when I see him now. Again, the best boss ever.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Townsend family. I can't imagine what they are going through. I got to visit with them last night and baby Cole is adorable. They are under so much stress with a new house, new baby, holidays, and the death of his brother. Keep them in your prayers please.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOY!

We enjoyed our visit with you and MC, too! Would love to have seen Matt, too, but we know how that goes.
