It's Just Nuts!

Things have just been nuts here lately with the McDougal Family! Last weekend we got my sister moved to Kansas City for school. This is one of those things that I'm cautiously optimistic for her. I'm excited for the new chapter that of her life that she has started and yet hesitant to the change. For any of you that know me totally know that I'm not a huge fan of change. Now on top of my sister moving, my brother has moved to Jeff City to go to school at Lincoln. I'm very proud of him and know he will do just fine. I know that he loves it there and I think that God has a huge plans for him there as well. Oh wait forgot one more thing....Mom moved too! By the way all this moving happened in the same week. So anyhow, everyone is pretty much moved and situated for the most part. Mom's place we still have some work to do. It's really weird to me being the only child around my parents at this point. I keep wanting to call my brother and sister and say hey let's go grab lunch or go to a's not that easy anymore. As far as I'm concerned I have just been busy working and taking care of Lorelai.

Lorelai is doing well. She now has 8 teeth and loves to eat just about anything. She is attempting to drink out of a big kid cup without a straw or lid. So I'm excited for her but don't necessarily like the mess that goes along with it. Although at the same time I think it's totally adorable! Lorelai had another fashion show this past weekend at the Kid City event that the Holiday Inn Expo Center put on. Which seems to really enjoy all the attention that comes along with it. I do have to say though the most exciting part of it was when Lorelai and I were sitting on the floor to take a break I looked over at her and she was totally standing up all by herself without holding onto anything for about 10 to 15 seconds. I have a feeling walking will be occuring soon. It's so exciting to watch her grow and discover new things. It's also kind of sad to see her grow up so quick. I just want to keep her small! Lol I'm working hard on getting ready for her first birthday and I'm pretty excited about it. I should be getting invites out soon!

That's all I've got for now! :)
