The time has finally arrived to leave Oklahoma!
Don't get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed where we lived and all the great
people we met,
but it will be so nice to be close to family now.
We celebrated our last night by going out for pizza at the
same place we ate at when I went into labor with this little cutie!
Last time I was there I really couldn't enjoy the pizza very
much as I was breathing through contractions.
We've come full circle!
So we finally got all packed, the house cleaned,
and Scarlett dressed in her warm PJ's for the trip
when she decided to perform a little magic trick and defy the law of gravity...
How this is even possible, I don't know....
But of course ALL of her other clothes were packed away
except for an emergency onesie in the diaper bag.
So I was the mom who had the baby out
in the cold with nothing but a short sleeve onesie and no socks.
My mother would be so disappointed in me.
Goodbye to our cute house!!
My cute lil truckers :)
This was the worst part of the trip.
Chris had to drive our moving truck ahead of us towing his car
and I followed behind with the babe.
It should've been about an 18 hour trip, but stopping every 2-3 hours
to feed the little one turned it into about 24 :/
Scarlett had her fill of the car seat after about the first 8 hours....
My husband doesn't like me haha.
He is so spoiled with our king sized bed that he refused to
share a queen with me at the hotel, and therefore had to get a room with two beds
so he wouldn't have to snuggle up ... so ridiculous lol.
Had to document the granny pants!
Our choices for clothes were quite limited.
Oh but don't worry, she pooped all over this one right after we put it on too.
All in all we survived the trip,
we only had around 6 diaper blowouts,
1 wrong turn,
0 flat tires,
5 emotional breakdowns
(1 from me and 4 from the babe....the last one lasting the final four hours of the trip)
3 sketchy gas stations,
4 hours with no internet connection or cell service,
1 dinner comprised of vending machine snacks,
about 40 girl scout cookies (not so delicious after the first 20 or so),
3 sore tushies from sitting so long,
4 phone calls to the parents to try to remember how to get back
to the house I grew up in (I know...it's sad)
but one big happy family reunion when we finally got there!
It was so fun to unite the little one with her extended family :)
Her soon-to-be best friend, Cousin Aspen
Of course, my dear friend, Stacy.
In heaven cuddling with these two cuties!
My cute dad absolutely adores Scarlett.
He's always wanting to hold her, comments on how cute her clothes are,
and even changed her dirty diaper today :)
That's love, I tell ya.
And of course, had to include our first family photo with Santa!
We went to the fun center's Christmas party last night,
and my dad said that Santa would be there to take pictures,
but we were lied to.
So my dad was a champ and dressed up himself just for us!
We're so happy to be here
and start this new chapter in our lives!
