I don't have a lot of coherent thoughts to share, but I thought I'd update on our "status" as we have repatriated back to the United States.

The boys LOVE it here.  We were at the mall recently, buying maternity clothes for me, and the boys found a little fountain that people had thrown money into.  They wanted to make a wish.  Levi wished out loud that "we would never leave Texas."  He's pretty happy to be here, which makes us really happy, too.

We have eaten a lot of Chick-Fil-A.  Now that they have grilled nuggets, I can actually eat there (gluten intolerant)!  And I have been craving their waffle fries!  But...Levi hates it.  He won't eat anything except the applesauce.  He'll actually tell you it's his favorite restaurant, but that is only because of the playground.  After several years of trying to get him to eat chicken in every form imaginable (grilled, baked, breaded, plain, fried...), we've finally just resigned ourselves to the fact that the kid won't eat chicken.

After 4 days of being in the country, Levi and I picked up a virus my nieces were passing between themselves. Thankfully we didn't get a bad case, but my poor 5yo niece, Ava, got it so bad that it took on a life of its own and she lost 6 pounds (she only weighed 41 to begin with) and had to be hospitalized.  We're thankful she's on the mend and back to being able to play (mostly) with the boys.

On our third day of looking at houses we found one!  We are set to close on April 5, and we are so ready to be settled somewhere!!

The same day we found our house, my car broke down.  Thankfully we have a great, trustworthy mechanic friend who had it back to us the next day!

I had to quickly find a pediatric dentist that will be on our new insurance plan when a piece of Caleb's molar broke off last night.  He has a cavity that started between his molars, and now he will have to have a silver crown put on it.  He also has several more cavities between his molars, despite our brushing and flossing.  His baby teeth are big and they are incredibly close together.  On April 11, he will go in for a big morning of dental work.  Fun times.

It's been nice being 10 minutes from my sister's house, and I've been able to watch my nieces while she runs errands.  It's really great to be near family again.

In the last week I've started to feel the baby move, which is always reassuring.  I go to the doctor next Monday to see my sweet OB that delivered both of the boys.

We are doing well, despite all the craziness of the last week and a half.  It's still weird that we're here indefinitely and not for a few weeks.  I don't need to stock up on a year's worth of clothes and toiletries, which is nice, but still strange.  We live here again.  Yep, still weird.
