Quick Update

Hey! So it has been a long long time since I updated and I thought I'd let you all know what has been happening in our crazy lives lately. We moved out of the basement of my in-laws and into their twin-home rental on the 2nd of January. It has been absolutely crazy getting everything unpacked but I am feeling at home now. It has been a little interesting getting back into the whole 'living on our own' thing again, but Josh is wonderful and really does help out alot. Lainey loves her new room and her new space and Josh and I are loving having a separated kitchen/living room/bedroom, not to mention a finished bathroom... Lainey loves having a bathtub too. Over the last month she has gone from being a baby to a toddler. She is now almost 20 months, and is talking up a storm! Josh and I love every minute that we get to spend with her. She refers to herself as 'Laineybaby' and uses that whenever she wants us to give her something. She has also learned the word 'mine' which is just too cute. She puts her hand on her chest and says "mine... momma, mine... Laineybaby" She is quite the independant soul. She knows exactly what she does and does not want and although she is beginning to throw tantrums, they haven't gotten too bad yet (knock on wood). All I can say is that she is just stinkin cute!!! School is, well, school. I am glad it is on the downhill slope and hopefully I'll survive the rest of my first year! Josh is staying really busy with Sundance Film Festival again this year, but he really enjoys his job- Hope everyone is doing well!

I'm glad to hear you moved into your own place! And I can't believe how much Lainey is doing. She is getting so big. Don't you just love when they get an attitude?

Yay for the update! I'm so glad to hear things are going so well for you guys. Lainey sounds like a cutie pants!! So do you think you'll teach next year?

Yey again for your own kitchen! :) Glad you are all moved in and I'm SOOOOOO glad I was able to come see your new space! You've made it so stinkin' cute it's almost nausiating! (Okay... maybe not nausiating, but it's still stinkin' cute!)

Quick question on your cute page. How do you get such a cute font on your header? Where it says 'The Porter Place'? Mine are all blah...

Yay your own place! Isn't that the best! I'm glad you are getting settled. That's so cute about all that Lainey is doing! Good luck with school!

That is weird to think we lived in the same place---the white twin home? We rented for about a year in 2004 I think. We called it the Porter Palace:) When we first moved in my sister lived upstairs and we lived in the basement as newlyweds. It was awful with our fmaily room/bedroom and "kitchen" and laundry room/bathroom. When we moved upstairs it was awesome! I am excited for you guys to have a place all of your own! My little 14th month old has mastered the tantrum--how did you get so lucky? I do have 2 older ones that may have influenced her:) Ah, the joys of the sweet first born:)
