The past few weeks...

We've been in Cherryville for about three weeks now. It's kind of surreal coming back to your home town after having lived away for a while. I'm thoroughly enjoying being back and close to friends and family again. We've been spending lots of time with my parents and Thomas's grandparents and I've gotten to hang out with a few friends from high school. Thomas's sister even came through town and we got to spend a night with her. She had a great time playing with her nephew.

We went to the Homecoming football game one Friday night. It was interesting to go back and experience that with 13 years behind me.

A week ago we had a little scare with Judah. He was climbing on a little chair in the living room and went over the back of it. The result was a split lip, a chipped tooth and a very bruised chin. We ended up driving to Henderson so our good friend and dentist, Dr. Burnham could stitch up his lip and take a look at his teeth. I will be forever grateful for his tender care with Judah.We're blessed to have such good friends who love and support us in so many ways. Well, two stitches later Judah was good to go. Poor guy! I was a nervous wreck over it and am still torn up over his tooth being chipped, but at least it's a baby tooth. I guess boys will do that sort of thing but I can't imagine how I'm going to endure the next 20 years of cuts and bruises! Ahh!

Still happy!

On Sunday we visited a church in Cherryville and by the time we made it home for lunch, Judah was worn out! He must have had a lot of fun in the nursery because he fell asleep in his high chair. That's the first time this has happened so we got a good laugh about it.

Judah is learning new things every single day and it's so much fun to watch. I love this age! He has learned how to: say "Shhhh" and put his finger up to his mouth, bark like a dog, pretend to talk on the phone, wash his hair, and my personal favorite, dancing. Check out his moves.


Dancing!

Today Mamere watched Judah while Thomas and I drove up the Blue Ridge Parkway to Asheville for the day and had a great time walking around downtown. I had a delicious sandwich, called Turkey Day, for lunch. It was carved pieces of turkey breast with a slice of stuffing, cranberry sauce and a side of gravy. YUM.

It's been a great few weeks. I'm loving every minute of it.
