Moving Time!

I'll be honest,
these two bums were no help in the packing process...
 The trusty Elmo car was, though!
Leon can't be bothered to walk while he has a popsicle.
OK. Finished with his treat - let's put this sugar buzz to work!
....really, Lee? common...
Welcome back, PODS
Camping out in the apartment while the movers packed us up.
 Another trip to Lowe's for more packing supplies!
 Adios, Harlingen.
We made a quick, one night stop in San Antonio
Before we headed up to Lubbock. Such a beautiful drive!
We made it to Lubbock.
Leon is loving the temporary house that we're staying in.
"Backyard. In. Play. Leon!" <---his latest catchphrase

Checking out the local parks. One at a time.

This is a sneak peek of our new Lubbock home.
Soon to be filled with all of the mess & noise that come with boys
...I'd have it no other way.
More to come!

Messy = fun

 Leon is getting frustrated that his legs aren't
coordinated and strong enough to pedal all
by himself. Here he's decided to quit and talk to the ants.

Now that he's a "big guy" at the ripe ol age of two...
No more pacifier! The first night was definitely rough.
He's gotten much better and we can call this life step a glowing success!
Leon made a "paci box".
We filled it with his pacifiers and "mailed it" to his new
baby cousin, Gabriel, in Chicago.

And Auntie Amanda sent us pics of them getting good use by the baby.

I came across these on my phone by surprise.
7:30am "Newmie walk"

The boy has great taste in entertainment.

Kelly was kind enough to share her latest playlist with us. 
It's definitely groove-able!
