are we done yet???

UGH PACKING SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And its even harder with a 14 month old unpacking everything that I just packed.
This morning daddy had to go work a overtime detail so I decided to start on the kitchen and see what I can get done. I got 6 boxes from work, so I went to town. started on the junk drawer(s).
Most people have more than one of these right?!?!!? Well we have 3! Why the heck do we keep this junk??? what were we thinking?!? Never again, that's for sure!!!
Anyways. so everything I decided to keep I put in the box. Well Landon took it out of the box, and put it in the trash. And everything I put into the trash, Landon took out and put it in the box. So I'm sure some things i wanted to keep are in the trash, and some trash are packed away in the boxes to add to a new junk drawer in the new house!
4 years ago when we moved into this house, we had maybe 3 kitchen cabinets filled. Now every single cabinet was SO jammed packed! stressful!
So after 1 day, literally spending 90% of the day in the kitchen, almost everything is packed away & ready to go! This moving stuff is going to take a lot longer than I had anticipated!!!
BUT we are getting there! One box at a time!!!

house update..

we found renters! YAY! They are actually the very first people we interviewed! We showed the house 3 times, and had about 10 calls on it in 2 days!! We called and cancelled a couple of the showings because we knew that we found the right people for the house. so hopefully they don't let us down!! We are waiting to hear back from the bank.. they say it should take about 3 weeks for everything to go through. which that will be 2 weeks. and we will be able to MOVE IN!!!! our renters are wanting to move in October 1st, so by the looks of it, September is going to be a crazy busy month for us! :) So excited!!!

Hopefully our friends and family don't run from us once its time to move. lol We sure could use the help moving and painting!!!
(hint hint Cassie, Kendra, Brandi, Terri.. lol love ya's!)

mr. independent

Landon & Mommy have something in common...
our favorite food is spaghetti!!! :)

hahah! he trys to be mr. independent & refuses to let anyone feed him! SO this is what he looks like after almost every meal! lol

everyday is more amazing than the last!!

Landon is 1 year, 2 months & 9 days old today, but who is counting.. :)

He is becoming such a little man & is so smart! He is running all over the place. He is a hard little guy to keep up with!! He can tell us where his belly is, he can stick his tounge out at people ha ha, he waves hi and bye, he can say “maaa and daaa” to the correct person, finally! I have been “DAAA” for the longest time! Lol.
Tonight he was sitting on my lap and I would say ONE, TWO, THREE… and at three he would fall backwards on to the couch.. after a couple times of doing it.. Landon started to count. He wasn’t saying the right words..sounded like baaa, boo, waaa. lol but he was trying and he knew exactly what to do on three. It was cute! :)

He is loving daycare!!! It took about 2 weeks for him to settle in at Nana's,but now he puts on his book bag, walks next door, walks up the steps & knocks on the door. Nana lets him in, takes off his book bag & he goes right to playing. so cute!!
I am OK with leaving him while I go to work. Some days are easier than others. Just the other day I was pulling out the drive way & Landon walked to the front door. I stopped in front and blew him a kiss & he blew one back to me. it was soooooooo cute. I cried the entire way to work!!! Like I said...some days are easier than others. lol

It’s the little things in life that truly mean so much!! I am one proud momma!!!

Grizzlies!

I some how managed to survive a evening taking Landon, 3 of my nephews & Dane to a grizzlies game. we sat in the lawn where the boys could run free. they had sooo much fun! Landon was sleeping before we got out of the parking lot!
We had a blast & I can't wait to take them again!!!!! Before we know it, Julian will be out there with them running around all over the place!
Oh Boys! :)

NEW HOME!!!

This weekend Dane and I found our dream home in Waterloo!!!! I am sooo excited to move out of Cahokia!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Our home is still listed for sale, but we didn't want to lose the house..so we put a home sale contingency contract on the house that gives us 90 days to do something with our home..if we don't sell it within that 90 days they will extend the contract another 90 days. i posted a ad on craigslist putting our home for rent. i really didn't want to deal with renting in Cahokia...BUT we are sooo excited to get in this new house we were pretty much do anything we can!!!
The house has been built the past few months, it isn't 100% complete.. but will be ready to move in the next few weeks. so that has really got us excited, and wanting to do something with our home in Cahokia ASAP!! so wish us luck & pray we get a buyer or renter SOON!!!

here is our new home...in the waiting.. :)

Julian Andrew Belosi

video

Welcome Julian!!!

August 11, 2010 we welcomed Belosi boy #4 into the world. my 4th nephew!!! :)


This was the first birth I've ever watched and it was by far the most amazing thing i have ever witnessed!! (makes me wish i could have watched my own! ha ha )


After almost 12 hours of labor, and a lot of stress put on the baby, Brandi pushed twice and Julian was here!


Thank god her doctor had decided to induce her when he did because sometime during the process the umbilical cord had got wrapped around his shoulders, and into a knot. A knot is not known to be dangerous if it is in a loose knot, but this knot was TIGHT! But somehow Julian was still getting all the nutrients and blood flow that he needed. Miracles happen everyday!!! <3
Tomorrow we will be taking Landon to meet his new cousin! More pictures to come soon!!!!!
