Moved but not quite moved in...

Well, we have moved and are now in Hartford, AL.  This moved happened so fast that it is still hard to believe that we are in Hartford.  Two months ago if you have told me that I would be in Hartford in August, I honestly would have thought it was crazyiness.  Robert was offered a job opportunity in the town he grew up in and after much prayer and wrestling with what we were to do we felt it was the Lord's will that we move back to Hartford.

It was a VERY hard decision to make since it meant uprooting our lives with me being 7 months pregnant. Leaving our church family and friends behinds was very difficult for all three of us, but everything has worked itself out according to His plan.  Eleanor misses her friends but is having a ball up here in church.  There are several girls her age she loves to play with at church.  You didn't think she was going to have a hard time finding friends, did you? :)

Another benefit is that Robert's work is only three minutes down the road.  He was driving 45 minutes one way when we were in Florida.  We get to enjoy much more family time as he comes home for lunch and get home a little after four in the afternoon.  I have to say it is wonderful to spend more time together as a family.  Speaking of family we are now much closer to both set of grandparents and I believe that it makes both sets very happy.  Eleanor is getting used to seeing her grandparents on a weekly basis rather than a monthly basis.  This truly makes my heart happy.

We are settling in up here and trying to get everything in order for baby boy's arrival.  He is doing well.  My last appointment was on August 9 and he weighed 3.5 lbs and changed from head down to transverse (parallel to the ground).  He seems to change back and forth between the two positions making me rather uncomfortable sometimes but what a wonderful feeling it is to feel him move inside of my belly!!  Prayers that he will turn head down and stay that way.  My next appointment with my new OB is next week.  I will let you know how the appointment goes.

Eleanor is super excited about having a baby brother come.  She keeps talking about how she is going to change his diaper and teach him his letter, numbers, and on and on...  It is quite funny to listen to.

Last but not least, Eleanor had a CF appointment at the end of July and she had gained three pounds and grown a few inches.  Her culture came back normal so we are praising the Lord for such a good report.  Keep her in your prayers as she continues to adjust to her new home and surroundings.

Thank you for your prayers,
