75 Days....

REALLY?  75 DAYS?!?!  Holy smokes!  Need to get furniture for Zach bought and set up so we can move the baby furniture into the other room.  My mom came over on Sunday and we went through and organized all of Zachary's clothes into nice big clear tubs by ages.  So I do feel like we have made a little progress.  Next step, clean out the closet and break down the bed so we can paint the room.  I am leaning towards a blue-ish color.  I never got to paint Zachary's room since we had our house on the market so it will be fun to do some color this time! :)

In other news...since Matt facebooked about it I guess it is okay to share here, he was laid off on Thursday.  Trying to keep things in perspective in light of other recent events for friends, but it is definitely still a stressful situation.  If any of you know of any jobs in the supply chain/procurement/pipeline/oil&gas business...I know of one great guy who is looking!  :)

Zachary also had his first ECI appointment.  His "teacher" for lack of another word, said she could see improvement just since her last visit from the evaluation.  In the last 2 weeks, he has said "poo", "look", and "more" and is getting really good at the head shaking for "no"!  And we have been working on straw drinking like they suggested and he pretty much mastered that too, guess all we needed to do was try!  So perhaps the 18 month "word explosion" is just around the corner.  I can't believe my baby will be 1.5 in a week!  I will SO be the old lady in the "I Love You Forever" book rocking her adult giant boy!!


  1. Stupid layoffs. They're affecting everyone these days. It sucks with a little one on the way too. I know how stressful that can be. I got laid off right after Evie was born. Not a good situation. Hang in there.

  2. I'm sorry about Matt's job!!! :P It's so tough out there right now. Praying that he gets another gig real soon.

    75 days, wow!! I am so excited to meet him. :D

  3. Hey Lisa -

    So sorry to hear about Matt getting laid off. I understand how it feels!! But I found work pretty quickly and have really liked it! Tell him to hang in there and it will work out. :) But I'll make sure to say a little prayer for you guys. 75 days! can't believe the little one will be here so soon! Aren't you so excited?

    Take care!

  4. Yikes. sorry to hear about Matt's job. Praying a new door is opened and he is working again with an even better company :) Can't believe you are so close to have the new one so exciting.
