Recent Happenings

It's really hard to believe that another week has passed since we made our big move. In some ways I feel like we just got here and in others I feel like we have been here forever. Things are really starting to come together in the house and it feels more like home every day. I can't wait to share pictures once we get everything situated. Regardless of the mess, it has definitely become home and we've all learned to love our little place.
I am very sad to say that I have not had my big camera out since we've been here. I've been relying on the trusty old iPhone which means my pictures are not the greatest and I really don't have a lot to share. I'm hoping to change that this week!

Other than unpacking and decorating, we've been staying busy getting out and about and trying to meet people. Before we moved I promised myself that I would join in as many groups/playdates as I could and that I would do it quickly. I knew that the longer I waited, the harder it would be.

So far I've been to a few meet-ups and I've already met a few really nice moms. They have all been so welcoming and I'm praying that I will be able to develop some long lasting friendships. I've really been seeking out fellow Christian moms because I feel like that is the influence I need most in my life right now.

I even attended my very first MOPS meeting. I was a bit concerned about putting Emerson in the nursery but she loved it. When I came to get her she said, "Hi Mommy!" and then turned around and kept right on playing.

We've also been taking full advantage of all the beautiful weather and the amazing parks. Emerson is loving it! It's even been nice enough to "swim" with the neighbors.
Library storytime has also been a big hit. We've been to three different libraries so far and each one has been well received by our little munchkin. She especially loves the singing, as you can see from this video:

I think one of the things I love the most is that we are so close to so many great stores! I went to Trader Joe's for the first time and found so many fun things! I've also paid quite a few visits to Target. I love that is just a few miles down the road.

This weekend was filled with a few others first that I'll be sharing throughout the week. And, of course, I'll be sharing Emerson's 22 month update tomorrow. 22 months?!? My girl is getting big!!

Happy Monday friends!

It's nice to have those amazing groups to meet knew people. :) I'm so jealous of your gorgeous 'swimming' weather. We're getting more SNOW here in Minnesota. BLAH!

That's great that you're trying to get involved! I think it can be so hard, overwhelming and sometimes scary to do that in a new place. I'm glad that you're meeting friends. :)

It seems like wherever you go, the weather is gorgeous and warm enough to swim. Can you send some of that my way please? Glad you are able to venture out and try new things around your new home.

Girl, look at you so busy! I'm impressed! You are so right, though. If you put it off you are less likely to do it later on. I hope you can find a good group of friends that will make your time in California feel even more like home!
