Packing up

We are in the process of moving. Leland is lending help when she can.

Leland doesn't even have to not try in high school: she's already been accepted as a student to Central Michigan University. She got a letter in the mail today saying she's been accepted for the freshman class of 2028. It included a sticker.

She is way ahead of me.

Go Big or Go Home

That's the way we like to do things here in our household, because having a new baby just isn't enough change for us. Stephen got a brand new job and we are going to move, and all by the end of the month. Some of the details of all this change are still a little fuzzy. Like where we are going to live for instance. We are trying to decide where exactly we want to move. I think we have it narrowed down to my old stomping grounds. Cities around Wyandotte. And I think we have decided we are going to rent for no more than a year so we can take our time looking for a house. But I'm so excited that buying a house is on the near horizon for us.

Stephen got a fantastic new job as a communications planner for Detroit energy company, DTE. He will be working at the Fermi 2 nuclear power plant in Newport, MI. This is such a great opportunity for him! We are both very excited. One of my most favorite things about his new job is that he'll no longer have to work on holidays! For the last four years one or both of us has had to work on Christmas. I know lots of people work on Christmas, but with our Boston family, Shanghai family, and Virginia family coming home it makes things so much easier.

In baby news, Leland is doing great! I love being a mom. It's so amazing to see how she changes everyday. She started smiling! That's fun for me. She's also had lots of quality grandparent time recently. We've been spending a lot of time at my parents while we try to decide where to live. And Hank and Mary and Christina came to visit twice last week. On Saturday Hank, Mary, Stephen, Leland and I went to the local winery to bottle some delicious wine. We had a blast.

Anyway, that is the latest and why the blog posts have been lacking. Also, does anyone know how the heck to get a movie from a Flip video camera onto blogger? It's been driving me crazy.

Here are some recent pictures of Leland with her Grandma Mary.
