It was a really enjoyable dinner. We weren't celebrating anything, and nothing in particular happened, it was just a nice dinner out to eat.
We were there for quite a while, because with my stomach, I just have to graze all day and not let my stomach get too hungry or too full. Greg called me a 'cow.' Isn't that sweet? ;) Anyway, because of this, I took a really long time to eat even half of my meal, so we were there for quite a while. Hunter was absolutely wonderful the whole time. He ate his meal with no problems and quietly played with his monster trucks when we were finished. Greg and I had good conversation the whole time (with the exception of the 'cow' remark.)
For the first time, I realized that Hunter is at an age where we can take him to restaurants and not have to be in and out before he loses it. He's a well behaved little boy that sits there quietly until we're ready to go. So with our son finally like this, what do we think it's time to do?

Yes, we are crazy people. This will be our 6th move in less than 5 years. Thankfully out of all 6, this is one of 2 local moves. When we were looking for a place in VA Beach while still in Phoenix, we were having a really hard time finding a place we were happy with. Eventually, we found the townhome we're in now, and she was willing to do a 3 month lease for us. So we moved into the townhome knowing it wasn't big enough and we would definitely be finding a new place at the end of the 3 months.
Well, after MONTHS of searching, we have found the place! It's a 4 bedroom ranch, so there's room for the little addition AND we will still have a guest bedroom! And it's actually through the same property management company as our place now, which saved us a lot of hassle and fees. Since it's only been 3 months, we didn't have to pay another application fee. AND instead of having to pay a whole new security deposit, we just had to pay the $175 difference between the two places! GOD IS GOOD! I was becoming a little stressed wondering how we were going to come up with $1000+ for another deposit.
I KNOW this is the house God intended for us. The day after we looked at it, I was already brainstorming about how I was going to tackle the cleaning! We do have to buy a washer and dryer, but goodness, we've been married for 4.5 years. It's about time we own some appliances other than a microwave!
Anyway, our lease is up here on June 30th. We're hoping to get into the house a little before then so have an overlap to move, but it just depends on when the current tenants move out. Either way, it should be a busy few weeks coming up. I will definitely post pictures once we're all moved in though!

He LOVES the potty chart! He loves getting another sticker to put on there. It only took a couple days and he hasn't had any accidents! It was like, as soon as he made the mind change that we go pee pee in the potty and not a diaper, that was it! He's even staying dry during nap time and through the night! Pooping is another issue, and we haven't been successful at that yet, but he's doing really well with #1!
Any suggestions for helping with #2? (And please don't say an enima...I'm not really fond of that idea.)
