Family Update

Well, the past couple of weeks have been pretty adventurous for the Allen's. James had his first high temp while his 4 top teeth came in. It's so hard to see your baby not feeling well but that only lasted about 2 days and he was up and running again. He also spent the night away from home and me for the first time - he stayed with my mom and Papa Steve for two nights. I'm sure we missed him way more than he missed us but we all made it through!! Baby Allen #2 is doing great. He's moving and kicking all the time and I'm really starting to show. This pregnancy has been pretty easy so far, in fact I sometimes forget that I'm pregnant again. Second pregnancy I think you just don't have the time to think about it all the time like you do your first. I can't believe he'll be here in less than 4 months! yikes!! I jokingly tell people my life feels like "Groundhog's Day" the movie since I am basically going through the
exact same things I was this time last year! Crazy!
We also have a contract on our house - Praise God! Most people were surprised that we were trying to sell our house with the market the way it is but I knew that if God wanted our house to sell it would - so now the craziness begins. We are buying a house on 8 acres that is a total remodel. We won't be able to live in the house during the renovation so I am praying that it is completed before the baby arrives but that may be a little wishful thinking! I've just got to be ready to go with the flow- which is not my strong suit but I'm working on it! Once again, I can see how the Lord so perfectly orchestrated everything up to this point so I have to trust Him all the way! The next several months are going to be pretty interesting!!
James is still moving around the house like crazy and is "talking" up a storm. He is supposed to be napping right now but I can hear him in his room talking to his aquarium! Here are some fun pics. As I've said before, I am having a hard time getting very many good pictures of him because he moves so fast and my camera has a delay -

"I'm coming your way momma!"
look at my two bottom teeth!

Being serenaded by daddy!

"How did I get here and how do I get out?"
"Aha- I think I figured it out!"
This is what happens when I was cleaning up his room and he crawled out - he was honestly out of my sight no more than 45 seconds at the most!

so glad your house sold. we went through the same thing with addison and, looking back, it worked out perfectly - which is hard to see when you're in the middle of a renovation.
