We have arrived safely here in Utah! We flew in Wednesday afternoon and can I just brag...the kids slept for the whole flights! Yup, both of them. It was marvelous.
Of course, leaving our amazing friends was difficult. But I was sent to live in this digital age for a reason. This computer stuff makes everything much easier on the emotions.
So you may be wondering how we are adjusting to our new life here and what we are up to. If you aren't wondering...then you may want to find a different blog to read, because I am about to tell you.
Connor has yet to throw a tantrum in two days! He keeps himself entertained...and NOT by "watching a show". We have only watched one movie since we have been here. Otherwise he is playing with Will and Seiji (cousins) or annoying Alex (the little dog). He spends lots of time coming in and out of the backyard and playing with the toy cars. He is in heaven. Of course, trying to get him to sleep on his own is not going as perfectly. Todd is downstairs now "sitting on the floor" by Connor's door waiting for him to fall asleep.
Abi isn't phased by any of it. She too loves the dog (I am certain Alex is just waiting for us to leave already).
Todd and I are going to be setting up his office tomorrow. That is, of course, after he enjoys a round of golf with his dad and brother (he enjoyed a round at 6:30 this morning with Grant).
I am relishing all of the help. It was so amazing to me to have Seiji call and ask to "play with Connor." I was told to just drop him off at my parents house. So I did. I had a whole hour without Connor. It was so strange.
I am trying to adjust to the time change. It was bizarre sleeping in until 9 this morning. I won't get too used to it though.
We are living with Todd's parents. They had a few empty rooms in the basement that they have allowed us to take over while Todd is still a "student" and can't afford the time to work at a paying job. My parents have an empty room in their basement that they have willingly given up so Todd can have a quiet place away from us to work on his dissertation.
All in all, we are doing well. Baby Carly is still snug and safe in her little womb and we are all feeling fine. I'll try to start posting regularly again.
