4 months old!!

I can't believe that Reed is 4 months old!! It keeps going so fast and he is learning new things everyday. He can now roll over from his back to his tummy, he has been rolling over the other way forever! He also has discovered how to lift up his feet to help his grab is toys hanging above his head. He laughs and talks to us all the time, and is finally on a good sleep schedule. Which has been so nice.. We went to his 4 month appointment on Monday and he weighs 16.8 lbs in the 80%, he is 26 1/2 long in the 92%! So he is growing fast and he is healthy. He now gets to eat rice cereal, he really likes it, but he is still trying to figure out how to swallow it.. but he is getting better everyday.

everything is changing..

So sometimes I feel like Jake and I are some of the craziest people I know. We bought our first home!! So exciting! We love it so much, it has so much room!
The problem is that Jake and I seem to get restless, and need change in our lives. We've been doing the same thing now for 2 years. So Jake decided it was time for a new job. He's been trying to buy the water store where he works for about a year now, and it just isn't working out. So he decided that he was done with that job (his boss is a joke) and needed to find something else to do. I know what are we thinking in this economy.. I don't know either. But he has a friend that he has worked with before and he got talking to him and he has been selling security systems for 3 years now and has done really well. So Jake decided that this is what he wants to do. I know I thought he was completely crazy when he told me this, but after much thought and prayers we are packing up and leaving for the summer and headed off to Pittsburgh, PA. Jake actually leaves tomorrow, and I won't go out till June 15th. Hopefully he can make enough that he can go to school full time and not have to have a full time job too. Wouldn't that be nice. So yeah here we go on our next adventure! I'm excited and scared all at the same time! I will post new pictures of Reed and the new house soon!
