Well, It's official! Jud, myself and Jamin are moving to Melbourne come August 1st. We found out just a few weeks ago that Jud's company was closing their subsidiaries and moving everything to their headquarter office- in Melbourne, Fl. Melbourne is about 35 minutes outside of Orlando on the coast, and about 2 1/2 hour drive from where we currently live in Pinellas County. This is a big change and it happened quickly, but it's quite a promotion for Jud and I am so proud of him! He is now the Director of Quality.
The last couple of weeks have been a whirlwind: had to leave my job at Countryside HS (it was hard to say goodbye, theyve been great to me and so supportive!), had to clear out our house of all the junk (i.e. Saturdays garage sale), tell family and friends about our move, trying to pack (nowhere near done), and trying to find a house to rent in Melbourne as well as find renters here for our home in Seminole. Our house was only listed for rent for a few hours before someone snagged it up (so thankful!) and it took us a while to find a home in Melbourne that meeted our needs. Many of the homes wouldnt take Sawyer, our black lab, because he is a larger dog. But we finally found a great house and our move-in is set for Aug 1. Highlight of our new house include his and hers walk in closets, a master bathroom, and a pool! All fun amentities that our Seminole home doesnt have. Despite all these fun new things, I am really going to miss our house- I love it, not to mention it's in the town I have grown up in my whole life! Attached are some pics of our new house in Melbourne (not our furniture!). I will keep you posted as our new Melbourne journey unfolds!

Jud & I made $327.40 selling junk out of our garage this morning. sweet! We think we also found a renter for our home in Seminole- good day! On the down side, a garage sale shopper was excited to hear about my due date and upcoming baby. It was awkward when I explained I have a 2 1/2 month old baby. Time to only eat salad!

I'm going to vent some concern over every parents biggest wish: I think Jamin sleeps too much! On average, he falls asleep sometime between 8:30-9:30 pm and wakes up around 4 a.m. to eat, and falls back asleep. He wakes up again at 6:30ish, eats and falls back asleep. This morning "nap" can last all the way until 9 or 10 am! Thats about 12-13 hours a night! I read this could be normal for 6 months or older- but Jamin is only 2 1/2 months. It kind of worries me? Maybe it's because he is a larger baby? During the day he isnt the best napper- most of the time its a 10-20 minute catnap every here and there unless were driving around a lot (he totally crashes in the car!)
Is this normal??

Yesterday, my dear friend, Jessica, packed her bags to move to Washington DC to work for the FBI (intense, I know). We had a lovely going away dinner at Bonefish the night before and the picture is from an early send-off breakfast at Einsteins. I'm going to miss her terribly. Have fun Yessica!

Here's some motherly advice for anyone who cares to read! Just for some background info, Jamin usually poo's at least once or twice a day. Well, a couple of weeks ago he had gone four days with no signs of poo. I did my usual google investigating and was relieved to see this can be very normal for a breastfed baby. I didn't think much of it and went on with life. Well, towards the end of day 4 Jamin seemed really irritated and uncomfortable. At this point, I begin to worry and call the pediatrician. Doctors orders: 1.5 oz. prune juice mixed with 1.5 oz. water. A couple of suckles is all that was needed to do the trick. So the moral of this story- if you need to give your baby some prune juice...my advice is to lay down tarps everywhere and make sure your baby is not in a onsie you plan to keep! I would also recommend mommy not be wearing her favorite outfit either!
