The dust is settling...

We've been sucked into a whirlwind the past few weeks and have finally been spit out 7 miles away in our new home. We moved over the weekend. The summer has been perfect... except for this weekend where we had record breaking heat. Luckily, we hired movers, so we just had the unfortunate task of watching large, strong men sweat like they were in Hell as they dragged our stuff out of our house and up to our new 2nd floor apartment. That's not to say it was not chaos and stressful. We're renting the house, so we've been primping and prepping the past few weeks to make hospitable. One of our last preps was to call an exterminator to spray the yellow jacket nest our poor dachshunds found under the deck; some stinger extractions, benadryl and aspirin later, the dogs are just fine but a bit more wary of where they step.

Luckily for us, my parents jumped at the chance of taking the baby and dogs for the actual move, which saved our sanity. Dillon has never, and will never be, a sit on the side lines kind of girl. I can picture her flying around the house tripping movers at every turn. Thanks, mom and dad!

Our other big news is... Dillon is 1! It was really a great day. We went to a farm with my brother, then we went to the Cheesecake Factory with the rest of the family, where Dillon ate her body weight in bread, bananas, chicken, veggies, pork, fries, and of course, banana cheesecake.

And... she taking some steps. It takes some conjuring, but she'll take about a half dozen before squatting to the floor. Crawling is still the preferred mode of transportation, but we're getting there.

One of my favorites from her birthday shoot

She was so excited to be leaning against the tree! I love that it doesn't take much to humor her still.

She's 1!
