Overdue updates from the Wilson's

>> Wednesday, March 16, 2011

First let me just say that this only blogging on Wednesday thing has got to stop! However, I'm just not sure I'll find the time anytime soon. So what has us to busy you ask, well let's see:

Oh my gosh, we're under contract on our house!!! After 6 months on the market and about 20 showing - it just took an open house on a beautiful Sunday for not one, but two different people to fall in love with our house. It's so bittersweet to think about packing up our home, but it's time! If all goes as planned, we're set to close in a little less than a month. :Gasp:

On Monday Jackson was scheduled to have his ABR test...which did not go well. Not because of his hearing, but because the terrible two's have arrived. This phase too shall pass, I just hope quickly! We kept Jackson up late, woke him up early, skipped his nap - so he was more than sleep deprived for the test. Well, a sleep deprived toddler does not mean that he'll fall asleep on demand. Seriously, the ladies showed us into the testing room. I was expecting to find a crib or a cot or a bed. Something, anything. Oh no, a chair. They gave us a minute to "get him to sleep" in a new room, with toys, and a chair. Let's just say after an hour and a half, they asked us to leave and reschedule somewhere else that doesn't require sleep to do the same test.

Jackson turned 21 months last week. Did I mention that the terrible two's have arrived?!?

I just got the call from Jackson's serum test, and he's allergic to eggs.

We had an amazing time with Stephanie and my sister. 11 straight days of company was oh so fun! You can read more about what our week was like here and here. Trust me, Stephanie's posts and pictures are amazing:)

We our currently in negotiations for our new house that I've fallen in love with. A backyard on a pond with a walking path and a neighborhood pool 5 houses away - yes, please!

Me and my boys will be moving in with my parents for a little while. While we are ever so grateful for their generosity, I'm nervous as hell that they'll regret this offer! Did I mention the terrible two' least Jackson's cute!

Speaking of cute, we got some precious pictures of Amelia and Jackson before they headed back to St. Louis on Sunday!

You've had a lot going on lady!

I have a questions about J's egg allergy...when ever he would eat eggs, would he have a reaction?

That is such good news about your house. I know you've been trying to sell it for such a long time. Poor Jackson and his egg allergy. At least you know what it is now :)
As far as the doctors asking you to reschedule, I mean what did they expect?? He's 21 months, that's what all 21 month old kids would do. I can't get our son to go to sleep unless he's in his own bed.

That last pic is so funny!

Congrats on the houses- both of them! It's always exciting when things seem to work out like that. I hope the contracts go through! Awesome that the house you want is so close to the neighborhood pool since Jackson is such a water bug :) Will you still be pretty close to Loli and Pop?

Sorry about the test- you would think a facility that is supposed to test children would be a little more equipped and flexible when working with... children! :(

ADORABLE pics of Jackson and Amelia. you can definately tell he loves his cousin!

So good to hear that you are alive and well....LOL! I am so excited for you that you have fallen in a love with yor dream house and at the same time, someone fell in love with yours. Things always fall into place. I can't believe poor Jackson and his test. I would have been so frustrated after all of that. But, that too, will work out. Poor kid :) Love the pics of him and Amelia....too precious. Stay well :)
