Our Apartment in Omaha

So we have been here for almost 3 weeks. Things are going well. Grant has been wonderful at getting used to different places and being able to sleep. He is starting to say many many new sounds. He will say Fish, Hi, Juice, Up, which is really a sound like UH UH UH. It is really cute. If you ask him to sing he will go LA LA LA. Again really cute. If you ask him what you say when you meet people he will say "HI". He will give a high five is to whom ever is around. He enjoys reading many books a day and pretending like he is cooking with all the pots and pans. He LOVES pens for some reason and his crayons. He still likes stairs. At the park we will go down the slide like 7 times just so that he can climb the stairs again. He also enjoys listening to music and dancing his little dance.

The weather has not been the best but it is also not 125 like in Houston. It is very windy here or at least it has been.

Clint has been working really hard and trying to get everyone in check. Grant and I have found a moms group that has activities for us to do during the week. I have to say I miss Harwin and my dollar stores. (surprise)

We are visiting churches and trying to find a church home soon so that we can get involved and meet some couples that have children Grant's age. The church we have gone to twice is very contemporary but the message is good.

Our apartment is a big change from the house. Already our sink has backed up and we have ANTS that I have called about twice. There is a grassy area outside our apartment where Grant likes to play. Our upstairs neighbor has a problem with stomping around. He/she gets up every morning at 6 so that is what time Clint and I get up. So much stomping that the ceiling fan shakes.HORRIBLE!!!

We are really ready for the house to be ready!!!

Like Lauren, I got your blog through Olivia and Ryan site. WOW! I cannot believe Grant has grown so much. It seems like just the other day he was visiting us. I'm sure you'll be glad to get into your house. I've always enjoyed Omaha during my trips to the CWS. Hopefully, if your should ever be back down around The Woodlands, you'll drop in and see Georgia and me. Congratulations and your great success together.
