In the past two weeks Jake went back to work in Boise while my mom came to stay with me in Spokane and help pack, Jake came home and packed the truck, me and my mom flew to Boise with Brayden and Bailey while Jake drove all our stuff over, we unpacked into our new home in Boise, my mom left, and I had my first week alone with two kids! It has been an exhausting couple of weeks, but we are finally settled in our new home. 

I hate starting over in a new place! We don't know anyone yet which is hard, but we are loving our new home. We have a lot more space, a dishwasher, a disposal, a back yard, a garage, and we don't share walls! Many things we have never had, and are loving! 

Brayden is still such a good baby. We feel very lucky to have him and love him so much! It is so much fun to see how much Bailey loves him too! She is always wanting to smother him with kisses and asks for him as soon as she gets out of bed. I find it funny that he likes to fall asleep when she is around him, but as soon as she goes to bed he wakes up and is happy to have the peace and quite and mom to himself. I say that Bailey has the perfect amount of interest in Brayden, she wants to see him, kiss him, and pet him, but then she runs off to play. She doesn't ever try to pick him up or care to hold him which is great!

1 Week Old

Brayden is 1 week old! Our first week has gone by so fast. It has been a completely different experience then when we brought Bailey home.  Brayden is a really good eater, rarely ever cries, and sleeps great. So far I only have to get up with him twice during the night and he eats and then goes right back to sleep. Hopefully it doesn't change!
Bailey has been a great big sister. She is becoming more interested in Brayden and wants to hold, kiss, and pet him like an animal. She does not seem too jealous yet, but she has had Jake all to herself the past week. Jake takes her somewhere every morning while I stay at home with Brayden. It does make me sad that she prefers Jake for everything over me. 
In between taking care of Bailey and Brayden we have been packing our house. Jake will go back to Boise tomorrow and my mom flies in for the week. I am sad we have to see Jake go again.  He will be back Friday afternoon to load the truck and we will move everything over next Saturday. Me, my mom, Bailey, and Brayden will all be flying while Jake drives the truck and a friend drives our car. I am very nervous to be moving to a new place and leave all the good friends we have here, but we are ready to be together as a family again! 

Bailey doesn't seem like such a baby anymore...
