21 DAYS

So I know I'm a nerd, we've been counting down for our move since February but I just can't help it! I'm sooooo excited!! I love meeting new people and getting to know my way around new places! It's been such a distracting thought for so long, half the time I completely forget I'm pregnant! (maybe that's way the baby's so active...hmm..) I'm a little nervous about Ammon though. First of all, we'll be driving across the country in three 12+ hour days I'm afraid this little active almost 2 year old is going to hate my guts by the time we get there. We've booked hotels with pools or that are close to parks so he can get some serious wiggles out but I'm not sure that will be enough. Then Jim is flying back to WA to work for the rest of June so we can pay off our car. Now, Ammon is pretty used to not seeing Jim very much, but he's starting to get supper clingy when Jimmy is home. He's started asking for "daddy" all the time or wanting to call him on my phone. And then, to put the cherry on top, we'll be having ANOTHER BABY in the house just a month after Daddy comes back. Ammon has been really sweet with other babies when I've babysat for friends but with everything else I'm afraid it might push him over the edge. I dunno, then again he might surprise me and do just fine. Any suggestions? Have any of you ever made a huge move with kids? Let me know, I think I'm out of ideas!!!

Holly, sorry I don't have any good ideas or suggestions, but I wanted to say "hi"! I miss you around here, but wish you guys the best of luck in Ohio! Can't wait to see pictures of your new little dude this summer!

Hi Holl! I was actually surprised at how much Hazen slept in his car seat when we drove here to Minnesota. He had stopped sleeping in the car and then during the drive here, all he did was sleep! Maybe it was the rocking of the car. Maybe you'll get lucky too! I hope you are all doing well!
