We're relocating!

Hi everyone!  So obviously it has been FOREVER since I've posted, but I figure since we've been in GB mostly everyone knows what we're up to anyway.  I had gotten a lot of requests to put pictures up somewhere that people would be able to order/print them off, so I created a shutterfly page.  As it turns out, I can also use that website for as a blog, so we will be moving over to that site.  Since it includes a lot more pictures and info, I have decided to make it a private  site, so you will need me to invite you.  I would LOVE for everyone to still be a part of our blog, so please, please, please leave me your email address either on here, facebook, or at so that I can invite you to our new site!  Thanks!  Looking forward to getting this up and running again and sharing all of the adventures that Connecticut will bring us.

Getting ready to move

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, but honestly nothing all that exciting has happened lately!  Although I have heard from my parents that even if it isn't exciting to us, it may be to everyone else, so I'll try to be better about posting more pics and videos of Ethan :) We're currently just trying to get everything all organized for the movers to come next week.  Our travel plans for next week have gotten a little complicated, but we were able to work everything out.  Looks like Ethan and I will be getting to GB next friday afternoon, and Zach will be there probably the following Monday or Tuesday.  He needs to take a trip up to Groton to look at some houses that we are interested in renting.  We're very happy that Pam and Chelsea will be coming down to help us out while we're moving.  At least we have our trip to Atlanta this weekend as a break from all of the craziness!  Our friends from college, RB and Steph live there and we are so excited to go visit them!  Mr. Ethan is getting so big!  He has started to walk holding our hands, so I'm sure it won't be long until the day when he just lets go and keeps going by himself!  He is also starting to eat a lot of table food, and isn't all that interested in baby food anymore.  We're really looking forward to Ethan's first Easter and have already bought all sorts of goodies for his Easter basket!  I'm also looking forward to being able to celebrate Easter with our family for the first time in a couple of years.  Looking forward to seeing everyone in a few weeks!

Here is the link to a video of Ethan walking:

Almost done....

Zach is almost done with school!  If all goes according to plan, he should be pretty much done after Wednesday.  After that we will be in full out move mode.  Our plan is to leave South Carolina on April 6th and be in Green Bay in time for Easter.  We don't know exactly how long we'll get to spend at home, but we're hoping it will be a couple of weeks before we have to head to Connecticut.  We had a great visit with my parents last week--we were sad to see them leave!  Here are some pictures of their visit.

Ethan can push his walker

Today Ethan started walking using his walker!  There is no holding him back now, he'll be walking in no time!  The video is only his second attempt....he's already much better at it.  We're looking forward to  my parents arriving on tuesday, so I should have lots of pictures to post next week.

Teething Sucks

Sorry I haven't exactly been keeping up with the blog.  We've had a rough week or two.  Ethan got another tooth and has been super grumpy!  He wakes up multiple times during the night and screams when I set him down.  Things seem to be getting better though, and I was actually able to clean up my house today!  On a brighter note, Ethan is now very very good at pulling himself up.  All he needs to stand up now is the wall....I imagine it won't be long until he starts walking!  He also has started babbling and making noises up a storm!  Zach has been working pretty much non-stop, but it will all be worth it when he gets done with school a couple of weeks early!  Here are some pictures and videos of Ethan's new accomplishments.

Goodbye Wisconsin :(

On Monday we said goodbye to Wisconsin after a wonderful trip home.  We had soooo much fun and miss everyone already!  Now we're counting down the days until my parents come to visit in February. (If anyone else feels the urge to travel to SC, we like visitors)  Ethan was such a trooper on the plane ride home, since we missed our connection in Atlanta and had to hang out at the airport for a couple of extra hours.  He is really crawling EVERYWHERE now, and even starting to pull himself up on furniture!  He is growing way too fast!!  Here are a few recent pictures of him.  I almost didn't want to post the ones of him in his Packer jersey, since I'm still a little bitter, but he's just too cute to pass up!
