Yummy, Rice Cereal

We decided since Madeline is almost 5 months old, to try to start her on rice cereal. She is drinking so much milk these days and has been watching us intently every time we sit down to eat for the last month. Turns out she loves eating from the spoon. She had no problem swallowing or keeping the food in her mouth. She is quite the loud eater. Also, just like her bottles, she hates it when the food is gone.

Our Garden

When Mike bought the house many years ago part of the back yard was sectioned off and had a swing set and wood chips. Mike removed the swing set when he bought the home and over the years the wood chips have composted in with the dirt. Mike and I worked to reclaim the area from the weeds and a large bush.

We planted a garden at the beginning of June....

We have been enjoying zucchini, letteus, lemon cucumbers, green onions, broccoli, and yellow squash from the garden. Last weekend I made some homemade bread with the Zucchini.

...and Baby Makes Three

Mike and I are happy to announce that we are are expecting our first child. We found out a few months ago and we are so excited. Mike has already starting cleaning out his "CB room" to make way for the nursery. Of course our parents are very excited as well, this will be my parents' first grandchild and Mike's mom's second grandchild.

The first few months were quite an adjustment. No more spending long days at work as I was not feeling well and I was exhausted all the time. I had a lot of morning (afternoon & evening) sickness. I am so lucky to be working from home. Now that we are into the fourth month, I am getting my energy back and feeling much better.

We had our first ultrasound at the end of May and our due date is December 31st. We are going to have a second ultrasound in a few weeks and will know if our new addition will be a boy or a girl, though Mike is sure we are having a boy. Boy or Girl we couldn't be happier with our new addition to the family. :)

Our New Home

Since we have moved back to Humboldt in January time is just flying by. I can't believe that we have been back 5 months already. We are still just getting around to doing some of our favorite Humboldt county things like walks on the beach at Moonstone, breakfast on Saturday at Los Bagels, and coffee in Old Town. It has been great to spend much more time with our families and see old friends. We are also having a lot of fun working on our home. Having been renters for so long, it is nice to be able to put a personal touch on our home. We have big plans....

Here are some pictures of our home.....

On the Move......

It has been awhile since we have posted on the blog, because life has been a bit crazy lately. We decided it was time to move back to Humboldt about six weeks ago and ever since we have been working on the house, packing, and driving back and forth between our city home and country home. :)

Mike bought a house in McKinleyville a few years ago and we have been renting it out. So, when we decided to move back in we had a lot of work to do. We have replaced all of the floors, painted the walls, and installed new window coverings. Our family and friends have been a great help and we could not have done it all without them.

As soon as we get a bit more settled I will post some before and after pics. We will be living in Humboldt full time as of the first of the year.

More to come.....
