We're here!

Window cleaning

Hello all! We're finally in WI and are getting settled. We closed on 8/20 and promptly moved in. Our stuff was delivered the following Monday, so we basically camped out in our new house for the weekend. My parents were here to help unpack, and they cleaned the house for us, too!

Since then, we have been visiting with family and friends and trying to unpack. We still have a lot of boxes to unpack, but we're not in a hurry. Thanks to all who helped us with this big endeavor!

Cliff has been doing some school work prep and orientation work. We have a picnic for the new faculty on Tuesday and then Cliff starts classes on Wednesday. He says he's not nervous. . .

CJ is doing fine. He's taking some time to adjust to the new house and has been meeting lots of new people and visiting with lots of family. He's getting up a lot at night lately, which has been hard on momma. We're doing some nap training and he often goes down without fussing now. Of course, some days he cries and cries. He still hasn't rolled all the way over, but he can put his weight on his legs to "stand" if we hold him and is almost sitting up by himself.

I have been offered a casual position in Labor and Delivery at Aurora, my old stomping ground. I don't know the details yet, but should know more within the next few weeks. Other than that, I have just been having fun being a momma and visiting with everyone for the last few weeks.

Ruby is adjusting well. She likes the big house and the glass patio door that she can see out of. She sits by it almost all day and watches the animals. She isn't afraid of going up and down the stairs anymore, but sometimes she barks at us to come remind her how to get back down!

That's all the news for now. Hope all is well with everyone. I miss all my Tallahassee peeps!

Love, Dana

Glad to see you are here. We will have to get together sometime soon. However, it may have to be after the wedding. The pictures are great, especially the one of your dad cleaning the window.
