Macinaw pictures- finally!

Life in this hotel while Aaron is at work all day is boring. REALLY boring.
To make it worse, we don't have any of Elliot's favorite toys or his walker or anything, so he wants to be played with or carried around all day long. Seriously. He cries or whines the SECOND you put him down, walk away, stop looking at him or playing with him, etc. He's such a high needs baby. I really love spending time with my little man, but it's hard to get anything done!
It's good to know he loves his mama, though ♥.
He also happens to be the cutest, happiest, friendliest baby I know- as long as he's getting attention. So that's great too. Don't get me wrong- I have a REALLY well behaved baby. I just wish I could get a break every once in awhile, that's all.
I'm really loving Texas so far though! The weather is beautiful! We're moving soon. The waiting list was significantly longer for bigger houses, and to be honest I don't know how much longer I can last in this hotel, so we're just getting a 900 square foot 2 bedroom house. It'll be small, but cozy. We move in August 5th and I can't wait!. Everything will be better when we have space and a yard to play in.
I FINALLY edited the Macinaw pictures last night. Here are some of my favorites:

Family picture in the Butterfly House. Elliot was WAY too distracted {and hot!} to look at the camera.

  1. Alyson tends to get that way too when we're in an unfamiliar place. That will be good that you get your own house soon though! That's one good thing about the military! You'll always have a place to live as long as you're active duty from what I hear. Good luck with the move! :)

    Oh Jazmyn

  2. He is changing so much. So cute! It's great to see your family back together again. :)

  3. what a beautiful family!! :) I don't live too far from ft hood. I love it here in TX. The heat, not so much LOL

  4. I absolutely love the picture of the butterfly, and Elliot is blurred in the background!
    I'm so happy to see you and your family back together again!

  5. Ooh I love the butterfly shots! Great job! I bet you are dying to get into your new house! That has to be hard living in a hotel for that long :(
