Happy Belated New Year!

We're a week and a half late, but Happy 2010! We have been so busy these past few weeks but we're finally able to settle down and relax with baby Grace.  After Christmas we went back to Lubbock and began the horrible horrible process of packing up our apartment to move down to Midland.  You don't realize how much stuff you've accumulated until you pack it into cardboard boxes and haul them down a flight of stairs!  But thankfully we had a close friend and Jonathan's mom, dad and little sister come to help us out.  We are getting things put away here at Jonathan's parents pool house where we will stay for the coming months until dental school starts (where we get to pack again and move to New Orleans--fun, fun).  We are so grateful for a place to stay!
Grace is growing so quickly, her face is so much chubbier then even just a week ago.  Tomorrow she will be 4 weeks old! I can't believe it! Since we moved we had to change our pediatrician (Dr. Stripling was amazing) but we were lucky enough to get my old pedi doctor Dr. Nabulsi, we have our next appt. on Feb. 16th.  She is sleeping up to 5 1/2 hours at night, which doesn't sound much to people who don't have newborns, but it has been a blessing for our sanity!  Jonathan and I joke that she must be very curious because she always has her hands up to ask a question, even in her sleep.
Yesterday, Jonathan and Pops put together the crib that Nana and Granddad got her, Grace watched/slept through the process of assembly.  Last night was her first night in a real crib and she didn't seem to notice a difference.  I'll post pictures later when I can figure out how to transfer them from the camera by myself.
Well, we are off to HEB to get groceries, have a blessed day!
