Change is Good

The first change for our family is Jett is 18 months!!! Yay! I think I would be more excited about this, except I've been in Nursery for the past year with him, and he isn't happy unless I'm not there.  Sad.  Jett is growing so big, he is finally getting some more teeth.  He deals with it pretty well and I think he is enjoying some extra chompers.  He still doesn't talk much which make communication frustrating for both sides.  He says "uh, oh" "hi" and occasionally momma and dadda.  He is really good at pointing and whinning/screaming. haha. Jett is into everything, like every toddler, but MORE.  I find him on the counter all the time and is constantly pulling things out of cupboards. Jett is still lactose sensitive and drinking lactose-free milk...the price for that stuff is crazy, so every once in a while I give him a cup of regular milk, but he always throws it up. He is still a great napper and night time sleeper, thank goodness.  Boys with this much energy have to crash sometime.

A couple weeks ago, I needed a change in my daily life and decided to get out of town.  As in, target and the "mall" just weren't cutting it.  So we took a day trip to Tucson.  We headed to the zoo first and Brody loved it.  I was a little disappointed that many of the animals weren't out.  Jett made a great face at the lizards.
After the zoo we headed to lunch at chick-fil-a, yummo, I so wish we had one down here.  We also went to the mall did some clothes shopping and then to world market and I did some major dreaming!

We've had some great monsoons this year, with it raining almost every afternoon since the beginning of July.  With rain comes growing grass and weeds.  We are slowly trying to pick up, clean, deep clean the house and yards before we move and another family moves in.  Here is a picture of the boys helping daddy mow the lawns.

Another exciting change is our house! It's a bit farther than these pictures.  They have taped and are starting to texture the walls today.  Then starting Friday they are going to start the stucco and the shelving in the closets.  I was trying to be the realist and say we would be in by December while our contractor said November.  However, everyone we have talked to says they would be surprised if we weren't in by October.  That would make me the happiest person!

Another change came on Sunday.  The very anticipated ward boundaries.  We decided a few weeks ago that when they realigned the boundaries in the stake that we would start going to the ward where our house is being built.  We are sad to leave our friends who are now in 1st and 5th ward, but so excited for a fresh start and new people.  We are shocked and excited that my in-laws are in our ward also.  We will be gone on our last hurrah to the lake this weekend so the following Sunday will be a first in our new Hereford Ward!
