So it's been awhile....

Well, it has been a long time but we are finally getting around to update our blog. It's hard to even know where to start.

I will start with bragging on my very own expert realtor. We had about one month before I had to start my new job in Alexandria, we decided to try to sell the house on our own while we were still living in it. If we hadn't sold it by the time my new job began, we would just list it with a realtor. We had so many calls beginning on the first day. Within the first week, we had a buy/sell agreement on the house and the next week we had a back-up buy/sell agreement with another family. And then about 2 and half weeks later, we closed on the house on a Friday and I started my new job on the following Monday. I have a feeling that even though we saved money by not paying a realtor fee, Jennifer will make that up and then some at the Mall. Anyway, I just wanted to brag on my great wife/realtor.

We have been living with Jennifer's parents since we moved back to Alexandria while our house is being built. The walls have been painted and the tile guys finished up their part yesterday. The electrician moved back in and is finishing all the receptacles and switches and lights. Hopefully the house will be move-in ready in about 2-3 weeks.

Mallory is just a growing. She got her first tooth about 3 weeks ago (at 6 months and a week). We were so excited for her. She should be crawling any day now. You can put her on the floor and she gets on all fours and rocks back and forth. She can go backwards pretty good but not forwards yet.

My new job with the City of Alexandria is going good. There is alot to learn because my department is so big and Alexandria is a pretty large city.
