We're Moving to Nashville!

Eric has decided to accept a job offer from Select Medical Corporation (Long-term acute care hospital system) after much prayer and trusting in God's perfect timing. He will be training in Nashville for at least 3 months starting January 12th. Nolan and I will move with him and we will continue to travel back to Birmingham on the weekends until our house sells. Once his training is complete, he will be the new CEO of Select Specialty Hospital in Gulfport, MS. It's an amazing opportunity for Eric and we will only be 1 1/2 hours away from each of our families...which will be such a huge blessing with another baby on the way! So looks like we'll be season tickets holders this year for Southern Miss! We're really looking forward to being a lot closer to college friends and finding a great church to quickly become involved with because we're going to miss Highlands like crazy.. (I'm sure we'll be watching the podcast weekly!!).

Anyhow, we've got a lot going on in the meantime with Christmas, traveling, and packing! We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and will post pictures soon!

We're expecting again!!

Looks like Nolan is going to be a big brother next summer!! We went to the doctor today for my 1st prenatal visit and I'm measuring 7 1/2 weeks with a due date of July 31st. The baby had a heartbeat of 156 (Nolan's was 132) and everything looked perfect :) This pregnancy has been very different from the last and I've been very nauseated mostly in the afternoon just about everyday. I was never sick a day with this is all new to me! Hopefully, it will all pass soon and I'll get back to feeling normal very soon :)

We also may be moving out of state for Eric's job sometime shortly after the New Year. We will keep you posted on our whereabouts and will email out our new info. Please keep us in your prayers as we are about to make some life-changing decisions.

O' Christmas Tree

Eric and I decided it would be fun to actually go to Old Baker Farm this year and cut down our Christmas tree ourselves. Nolan had so much fun walking through the tree paths and Frankie was excited he got to come along and assist Eric in using the hand saw. It was a really cold day here and perfect for staying indoors that afternoon to decorate the tree and watch the SEC Championship game between FL & Bama. I'll post some pics later of our finished tree. It's perfect!

16 months old

Tomorrow Nolan will be 16 months! I cannot believe how much he is changing everyday and developing such a little personality!! He is definitely the life of the party! He's such an outgoing and social toddler and has really advanced his vocab lately and likes to speak in Chinese (as Eric would say) as he's trying to form sentences. It's so funny listening to him blab away. We are really looking forward to the month ahead and can't wait to see his face on Christmas morning :)

Eric came home from a diaper run at Wal-mart the other day with the cutest Superman pj's for Nolan. We couldn't stop laughing once we put the outfit on...especially b/c it came with a little red cape!! It was so funny watching him at Nommie's house getting into everything with his special pj's on! We had a great Thanksgiving break, but I am so glad to finally be home from last Sunday. Eric and I are looking forward to running this week and eating lots of fruit and veggies!!

Nolan at 15 months

Nolan is growing up so fast these days! He's at such a playful age right now and is picking up on things a lot faster. His newest things are: playing kitchen at school, pointing to all his body parts, drinking out of a straw...finally!!, pointing to and saying "moon" at night, coloring & painting, climbing on everything, understanding simple commands like bring me your ball, or turn the water off, putting big wood puzzles pieces where they go, and of course our sweet love bug is blowing lots of kisses and giving hugs! He's still such a social butterfly and is quickly walking everywhere these days!!

Go Eagles!!

We enjoyed a long weekend in Hattiesburg for USM Homecoming and were able to visit with our family and close friends. It was a high scoring game with an easy victory over UAB winning 70-14! Wow, huh! It was well worth the last minute tickets we got on the 50 yard line thanks to the Baxter's :) Anyhow, Nolan had fun running around while we tailgated and was making friends with every child out there. He is VERY social! I also had fun at lunch with a few of my sorority sisters from college and had a date night with Eric after we left the game...which by the way was so nice :)

Learning to play the harmonica

Eric brought home a bluegrass harmonica the other night and Nolan was so tickled by the noise it makes! After a little practice with daddy, Nolan picked up on how to play it...and has been having fun with it ever since! Check this out...

Boo at the Zoo

We took Nolan to Boo at the Zoo last night with our friends Joy and Ash and their little girl Mallory. We rode the carousel, walked through the petting zoo, and took Nolan on the train. He had so much fun and pretty much walked the whole time, not wanting to ride in his wagon! Nolan was such a cute spider and Mallory was the prettiest peacock ever!

Zachary Thomas Oglesbee

My sister Allison and her husband Jeff were blessed with a beautiful baby boy on Friday, October 10th at 7:27am, weighing 8 lbs. 1 oz. and was 19.5 inches long. We were able to go home this past weekend to meet the little guy....who is just precious and sooo tiny! My parents are so happy to have 2 grandsons now and Nolan can't wait for him to get bigger so they can play!

Old Baker Farm Pumpkin Patch

Today we took Nolan and Nommie to pick out pumpkins at the Old Baker Farm. We had such a good time taking pictures and enjoying the nice weather. Nolan went on his first hayride and loved the petting zoo! He was really walking all over the place and made it easier on us not having to carry him everywhere :)

Race for the Cure

Within the last few months I've started running again and ran in my first 5k today since I've had Nolan...the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. I ran along with 13,000 other people who came out for this great cause and I finished in 29:06...with having to walk just a little. It felt great to be out there this morning and it motivated me to run more.

Spooky but Cute!!!

We picked up Nolan's Halloween costume on Sunday from PBK and couldn't wait to try it on him that night. He lasted about 5 mins before he threw the hat down on the floor! I sure hope it's cooler when we take him to Boo at the Zoo in 2 weeks....we've got one spooky little spider!
