Howdy

Wow! Unintentional bloggy break. Abby and I have been busy. We are all moved in and loving our new house. I'm totally broke but it's worth it because we really like it here. Abby loves her new house. We still have boxes here and there and pictures leaning here and there so no real pictures yet. My parents had the main rooms painted and replaced all of the carpeting for us as a gift before we moved in. All I have left to paint are the two Bathrooms and the laundry room. There are plenty more things to do as well. Our yard is a disaster but my Dad will be here soon to help shape it up for us. Boy does it need it. Have to say it is super hard to unpack and settle with a three year old assisting but we are getting there ever so slowly; Little Miss has been quite sassy since we moved in and having some serious tantrums. I'm sure some of it is the move but I was worried it might be attachment related as well. Thank goodness for the Rumor Queen forum. I put a post there and found out it seems to be mostly just age related. Yikes she can throw a fit. We were averaging about one an evening since we moved. Over little things like no pop sickle before dinner or being told she couldn't do something. Thankfully after about a month of these she seems to have settled. (Knock on wood) She has been tantrum free (of the big ones anyway) for the last four days. Will catch up and update more soon. Here are a few pictures of my growing fast little girl :)

Nice to see you back blogging :) Glad to hear the move went well. Love the photos of Abba - she looks like she's loving life.

Three is being a bit challenging here too! I'm reassured to hear it settles down again! :)

Wow-wee is that girl getting big! It's so great to see your post, and I'm glad you're settled in your new place.

Yep...three year-olds do have their moments. They sure do!!

I could really relate to this post...everything from trying to get unpacked to being broke to tantrums. Hang in there and know you are not alone!

Congratulations on your new home! How exciting and yes, a ton of work. Abby is too adorable! Ava definitely had a time where after a perfect day together, she would throw a fit early evening. She'll be 4 next week and hasn't done that in a while (yeah) so Abby will get through it. Take care! Michele

So glad to see a post! Keeping the house reasonably clean with kiddos is crazy- unpacking? Well, just keep as sane as possible! =) A's hair is getting so long...looks like she's loving the house, too! You'll need to give me all the do's and don't's regarding three year olds...two is just a warm up, eh?! Meet up soon?
