Lots going on!

It's been a while since I last blogged...so I'll catch you up on what's been going on with us! As many of you know, Michael and I sold our townhouse. Woo Hoo! We moved out on May 1 and rented a furnished corporate housing apartment in Hoover. I'll spare some details...but long story short, Bailey did not adjust well at all. In fact, we believe this whole move truly traumatized her. She stopped eating and sleeping and turned into a little monster! So, one morning I couldn't take it anymore and decided that we needed to come on home to my parents house in hopes that it would provide her some sense of normalcy. It was a tough decision because we had to leave Michael and I didn't have time to say goodbye to many of my friends. However, I knew I had to put Bailey first and take care of her.
It's been a full week home now and Bailey is back to her normal sweet self! She is eating and sleeping like a champ!!! She's so happy and just loves it at my parents house. I without a doubt made the right decision to come on home.
On Thursday we are actually travelling back down to B'ham. My sister, niece, and nephew are coming back with us. I had to come back to help Michael pack up the POD, Bailey's 2 year check-up, her birthday party, and to say goodbye to my sweet friends! This trip will be so hard on me because I know we're not coming back (at least for a while) and the life as we've known it is now over. One chapter closes and another one will open!
In the meantime, Michael will be living with Eric and Katie. He'll have a week off at the end of June and then he starts at UK on July 1. We are keeping our fingers crossed that our house will be ready by June 30! It's been a crazy summer already...but we're making it!
MiMi bought Bailey a new tricycle when we got home! Loves it!
