Adjusting, it takes a while...

It's hard to find everything that you want right when you want it when unpacking, but I finally found the cord to my camera so I could upload pictures onto our computer. We are learning to adjust to life in Wylie. I lose track of time very easily and before I know it my day if half way over. Last week and this week JD is off to an event, the nice thing is that it's in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Last week he was only 15 minutes away from home so he came home one night and then we went and visited him twice. This week he is in Fort Worth so we are going tonight and spending the night with him and then we won't see him again until Saturday.

This is the front door to our lovely apartment on the third floor!!! I was so excited to put my Valentine's sign on the door, until one night when I woke up in the middle of the night because it was banging on the door so hard due to the wind. So it only goes up on non-windy days, which seems to be very few.This is the view from our stairs. It is so flat here!! Actually it's a little hilly, but I am use to seeing mountains in pretty much any direction you drive, so that's something new to get use to. And I don't think I have ever seen so many water towers in my life. I thought I would be able to easily find JD's work when we visited in November because it's right by a water tower, no there are so many, and you can't see it, but there is one off in the distance and there's another one you can see from our apartment further west.

Nixon just started on solid foods and likes them, but he loves to eat. At first he isn't so sure about what I am giving him, but he's had carrots and squash. He's getting so big and loves to be on the floor and scooch around, He'll probably be crawling sooner than I'll be ready for it.

Brooke is doing well, she has made quite a few new friends very quickly. She misses everyone and asks if we can go to Grandma's and play with Chloe or Brandon. She always talks about everyone, it just depends on what we are doing. It's been sort of cold and windy lately so we haven't played to much outside, but she has come to love playing the Wii and is getting better at golf, so look out Keith she's going to beat you! We went to a playgroup last week where they had bouncy castles and fun things like that, but Brooke didn't want to do that, she played air hockey with a boy from the ward for most of the time.

She also loves to be on the computer, she was really tired that day!!!

Our apartment is still sort of messy because I haven't found a spot for everything just yet. Hopefully when JD gets back from his trip he'll be able to help me a little. But we will keep taking pictures and posting them for everyone to see!

That's funny that the sign only goes up on non-windy days. I feel for you. I had one at Christmas, but the only difference is that I kept it on the door so that we could all be tormented by that annoying knock.
Thanks for the pics. I miss you guys. But I especially miss holding sweet Nixon. Hugs to you all.
By the way this is Candice
