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 :)
