So we have lived in Morgantown for about 2-3 weeks and have already been in most of the hospitals in the town. Our first visit was a week ago Sunday. Jayden was in the nursery room and sitting on those little kid chairs and had a crayon in each hand. He went to get off the chair and lost his balance and wouldn't let go of the crayons and fell. His head hit another chair and he split open the skin by his left eye. It wasn't very deep but we felt we should have it looked at so we went to the E.R. They gave him 4 stitches. He did pretty good....until we had them removed. He remembered and freaked out! The bad thing was I took him by myself and when I got home I cried and we all went out for ice cream. (for Jayden's sake :)

Then this last Saturday I went to a walk in clinic because I had a UTI. And I was nervous because I heard that was not good while pregnant. While in the clinic my back started hurting pretty bad and I had the fever and shakes. I was pretty scared and I think I scared the doctor there who said I needed to go to the hospital to have it checked out so that we could be sure no harm was coming to the baby. Well three days later I was released from the hospital. I had a pretty severe Kidney infection and they were worried it would start preterm labor so I was monitored pretty carefully. I am grateful for little things (tender mercies) like that it was Valentines Day and Colby was a tropper and there for me, I am thankful for great pain medicine, I am thankful that we have such a supportive ward who has taken care of Jayden, Colby and me while I recooperate, and I am thankful all is well with the baby.

So, I haven't quite decided yet if 2009 is officially jinxed for us just yet. It has only been two months out of 12, we will just cross our fingers and hope the good luck continues. Thank you again to all who have helped us out during this time!

The move was successful!

One of our first outings in Morgantown. It was Amy's Birthday and we celebrated at Chili's, it was a lot of fun.

He loved this shelf and kept climbing through.

His favorite thing to do when I am trying to put laundry away!

Jumping in one of the boxes as we were packing.
So we are moved and it went good. We were able to move in one day and are moved in except for some boxes to organize and figure out how to store. I can not lie, I am tired but so glad we did this now instead of waiting till I am farther along. I do miss Colby on the days he has to commute but Jayden gives him a big welcome when he gets home.
Jayden is finally feeling comfortable here and realizing that this is home. He loves that is toys and room is all on one level, so am I! We sure appreciate all of the support and help during the move!
