Breakthrough

We had a major breakthrough about two weeks ago...

Drew's bottom teeth popped through without a fuss, just plenty of drool. He has really perfected his rolling and scooting which has turned him into one solid muscle that loves to play and eat.

We are right in the thick of things with school, tests, and homework assignments. My mouth is full of canker sores and my left eye has been twitching for 6 days. From what I've researched both symptoms can be attributed to stress, which is interesting because I don't feel very stressed. Spencer and I are both suffering from severe Senioritis and are anxiously awaiting graduation.

Last week I walked home 1.5 miles, uphill, in the rain.Just as I approached our apartment a $1 dollar bill floated by. I love stuff like that. I haven't decided what to do with the smelly soaked moccasins outside our door. They are most likely headed for the trash. But now I have $1 toward my next pair.
In other news we are thoroughly enjoying all the Jimmermania on campus and love this time of year with plenty of college basketball games to watch. My very talented and thoughtful cousin sent me a little something for my birthday last week which I quickly stuck on the back of our car. It has brought a lot of attention and friendly honks (at least I think they are friendly...)

Do you know where y'all are going yet? If Spencer has any questions he can call Jared anytime.
And I want new shoes too.

Oh the teeth! I'm so glad Drew's popped through without a problem! That can be the worst time ever!

He's getting so big! I am sorry to say it though Sara, I think he looks like his daddy. Wish you luck on ya'lls senoritis...with luck and patience you'll get through!

Lucky finding a dollar. i love that the money will go towards the same shoes you're going to have to throw away. Glad you like Bri's hair. Miss you too ♥

Drew is so cute!

- and your ring looks good.

Go to a fountain in the mall in your smelly shoes and you should reinact this moment until you have collected enough money in there to buy your new shoes. Just a thought

Love you!

SOooo, I totally have the same thing happening to my left eye right now...weird! Like you, I don't feel stressed but maybe I am subconsciously...Congrats on almost being done, we're definitely jealous, but we'll join in a year! We miss you guys and STILL have not seen your baby...PATHETIC. Maybe this summer we'll have time to get together. Hope all is well!

Teeth - WOW! I can't believe how big he is getting! Also, is that a diamond I see on your ring? I thought it fell off? I'm confused! And ALSO... YOU ARE THE LUCKIEST PERSON ON THE PLANET! Hahaha and i love that you took the picture of the bill floating! Haha you are awesome. I miss you!

Erin said...

That dollar was from Jimmer.

Lauren said...

Carter all the sudden grew up the minute he got teeth, watch out!!

Aubrey said...

You got a new diamond! Or you found your old one? Either way, it looks great. I love finding dollars in weird places where there's no Lost and Found around to make you feel guilty. HA!

Cat said...

Paper money...now that is a great find. Sure, finding a penny or dime is fun but anything that is green is golden :)

Congrats on the teeth...a milestone for sure :)

Cindy said...

Did you get another diamond for your ring!? And I like how I have 4 comments on my blog post...all from you! :) Love you guys!

Nicole and Ryan Wilder said...

I hope one day I will come across money like that... maybe a $20 would be nice! :) Yay for Drew's first tooth! Thats awesome he didn't even fuss about it. I love his outfit too.. Jett has that same pattern on a bib. I wish I had the matching outfit to go with it! Miss you luv you take care!
