I'm going to move one more time in my life. It's all over but the unpacking and cleaning, which anyone will tell you takes the most effort, but you get to spread it over a longer period of time. You actually empty the last box right before you move again.

Zoe is growing and gassy, making her fun for an hour, then grumpy for an hour. But overall she's a breeze compared to Molly's first few months. I don't lie awake at night wondering if Zoe is breathing (mostly because she's in her cradle grunting and sighing and making other baby noises all night).

It's quite an adjustment living this far out in the country, mostly in how you manage your trips into town and how important footwear becomes when I check on things that go bump in the night. One cool thing is there are animals everywhere--turtles, rabbits, squirrels. A deer was eating grapes off a tree in the front yard at daybreak the other day. You don't see that in the Metroplex.

I've added a lot of pictures, which have been long in coming because of the move. I'll be more diligent about posting now that we've (somewhat) settled in.

Daddy used to walk a little trail out back and he would frequently encounter a fox which would be perched on a stump. The fox just watched so long as nobody approached. And then there was the afternoon Daddy and Kissie encountered a coyote at the back fence. Oh, Kissie wanted to be fast that day but, it just wasn't meant to be.
