2 year checkup!

We are almost a month late on getting Jack's 2 Year Kan-Be-Healthy checkup done, but oh well. We went this morning and he weighed a whole 24 pounds 2 ounces and was 33 inches tall. I looked back and at his 1 Year Kan-Be-Healthy he weighed 21 pounds 6.5 ounces and was 28 inches tall! So not much weight gain, but he grew 5 inches! Wowza!

Jack is right on track with all of his development which is awesome! He had to have his finger pricked to do the lead test again and 1 shot in his left leg, but he did really good!

Not much else to report!

This is exactly how I feel these days, blah... I think everyone thinks I'm ungrateful or spoiled b/c I have not been excited about our big move to our new beautiful house at all and I can't really explain it. I feel like it's not my house, I fell like I'm staying at a stranger's house and don't know where anything goes or where anything is. I feel empty and alone when I'm there alone, it makes me sad.

I met a couple of our neighbors yesterday and one of them, Casey, she is and her family just moved in directly behind us about a month or so ago and she said the same thing - that it was just now starting to feel like their "home". So hopefully in another 3.5 weeks I'll feel the same way. Casey is also pregnant and is due in August with a little girl, they also have a 2.5 year old, Crew, so I'm hoping him and Jack become fast friends!

I also met Annie, her and her husband, Ryan, have an almost 4 year old, Ace, and an 18 month old, at least we have nice, young neighbors with kids around Jack's age!

The other big item weighing heavy on my mind is George. He has not adjusted well at all since Charlie went to live with Chris' brother and his wife. George CANNOT stand to be alone, at all and he gets so high strung that when you finally do get home he is "tinkling" like a puppy and it's completely unacceptable. If we are home with him he is great, no problems - the minute we leave him he is whining, crying and barking so bad it breaks my heart. I really think he needs to go to a home where there is another dog to keep him company or he needs to live with like an older couple or man or lady that are home all day, but where do you find that?!

I've ran that thought of taking him to the humane society here in Pitt b/c they are a no kill shelter, but then I picture him sitting in a cage - alone, crying and I can't do I'm crying! That's all for now...

our new yard

Our new house has a nice sized yard, not too big not too small! I think Jack actually got the best end of the back yard stick...see the last picture - yes it's staying! :-)My most favorite feature of our yard is probably our mailbox, it's so cute!
