Another 7 months go by!

Last time I wrote, Alex was born and we were moving to San Antonio, Texas. Alex is now 7 months old and doing great. He keeps us on our toes and brings sunshine to our lives. He gains more personality by the day. It has been such an amazing experience to watch him grow up and there's much more to come. I love being a mother :) We met some friends of ours at a BBQ place near Austin one Saturday called the "Salt Lick". It is some very good tasting stuff. WOW! You get to bring your own drinks, so of course, Henry Rootbeer was taken. Alex tried to lick his way through the bottle. It was hilarious! It is now one of our favorite pictures. It even sits on daddy's desk at work.

We moved to San Antonio, Lon looked for work for about 3 months and then landed a job working for Clear Channel Outdoor in their lease department. He is on a team of people working to better their leasing process so it will be more uniform. It is challenging work for him, but he is liking the new skills he is learning.

Once Lon got his job, we went to the builder and neighborhood we had our eyes and hearts set on (a few friends of our live there as well) and bought a lot. They are just about half way finished building with rumors of completion by the first of September. I am so excited to move into our very own house! Here are pictures of where it was a few weeks ago:

We know that we are where we need to be and we love it! We love knowing that this is where we will be raising our family. Until next time :)


  1. great pics and update. Pictures are worth a 1,000 words. I can't believe how big Alex is now!

  2. Alex is looking pretty cute and very fun to be building a house. Make good choices in types of carpet and paint!
