Yesterday, Will started a new job that we are so excited about. We truly feel that it is a blessing from the Lord that the whole thing came about. For the past two years, Will had been working doing litigation type law- and although he loved the people he worked with, the type of work was not what he had wanted to do. We prayed about all different directions we should take, and even came very close to moving to New York. Fortunately, God opened up a door using a friend from law school that allowed him to get a job here in town doing transactional work. YEA!!! I am so thankful that we are able to stay close to family, friends and our church- and we don't have to go through the headache of selling our house. Hallelujah!! For those of you that have known about our crazy roller coaster ride, I wanted to thank you for all the prayers and encouragement- I love and appreciate you all!!

I'm so excited Catelyn actually has enough hair to do piggy tails. That is one of my favorite things to see on little girls. I also coulnd't resist the wedgy picture. I always remember thinking how cute it was to see a little baby running around with a little wedgy that they could've cared less about. Yesterday at the pool, Catelyn was definitely one of those babies. I couldn't help but laugh and take a picture. I'm sure she'll thank me for it one day. :)

Catelyn had her picture taken for the first time (well...by someone other than a family member) since she was born at the end of May. A friend of mine's cousin, who is wanting to get in to photography, took them & did an amazing job. Here are a couple (or a lot- hehe) of my favorites.

Today, a group of us from church, got together and took the kids to the water area at the zoo. They had a ball! Catelyn liked the water ok, but she somewhat kept her distance. After they finished playing, we fed them lunch, and then strolled around the rest of the zoo to check out the animals. Catelyn must have had a good time, because by the time we got in the car it took her a whole 60 seconds to fall sound asleep. It was a good day!!

This past week, Will and I had the opportunity to take an awesome vacation with just the two of us!!! My wonderful sister, along with my awesome mom, kept Catelyn, so we could go. (Thanks ya'll!! You're the best Mom and sister EVER!!!!!) The vacation was like a second honeymoon, and we had the BEST time!! We headed to Orlando to stay at Disney's Beach Club Resort. We got park hopper tickets to the Magic Kingdom, MGM/ Hollywood Studios, Epcot & Animal Kingdom- and had an absolute blast! While we were at the Magic Kingdom, Will and I wanted to take a picture that we took almost seven years ago, when we were just dating. I couldn't help but laugh that Will had on the exact same shirt as he did the previous time we were there. I'm posting a picture of the two pics, but the one from 2001 is pretty blurry. I had to take a picture of a picture, and it didn't turn out so hot. Oh well. Anyways, by the time we got back, we missed our little girl tons, but it was so nice to get a way for a while and do nothing but relax. Here are a couple pics of our trip. Enjoy!
