What have we been up to?

Turns out I'm bad at blogging. But everyone already knew that.

We've been busy here at the Cox home! Which will not be the Cox home for long. We're moving! To Southern Pines. It's like... half an hour from here. Daniel will still be at Bragg. Did I trick you? I tricked you, I know it. We found an area nearby that we LOVE, so we're going to buy a house! I can't believe we're old enough to do that... so there will be another update on that when everything is finalized!

We're also STILL having a baby. I'm bragging to anyone who will listen that I can still touch my toes from a standing position. It's pretty sad that I now consider that one of my major life accomplishments... But anyway, we'll have a baby in the next couple of weeks! We also can't believe we're old enough to reproduce. And they're just going to let us KEEP her... no tests or anything. Suckers.

Harley is still great (except for when she eats the plants in my garden which is always). She just turned one last week and she's really the best dog for us. She loves to play, but she's also extremely mellow. She has graduated to sleeping in our bedroom (on her bed by the dresser, NOT in our bed--ew) and she weighs a whopping 55 pounds! We don't think she'll get much bigger.

We went to the beach last week with some friends--it was a blast. Even though at least four people tried to push me in the ocean because they thought I was a beached whale (ok maybe that didn't really happen). We took our dogs and Harley had a great time playing fetch in the water. It took her a bit to stop being scared of the waves breaking, but eventually she was swimming around like a champ! We got some awesome seafood (and hush puppies!!! I missed those so much...) after our day at the beach and it was just a great day!

Daniel is still playing army every day. Oh wait, he's not playing any more--he's actually in the army. He leads a team of medics and it sounds like they have some good times together. He got to learn to give an IV, which I thought was terrifying, but he thought it was pretty cool. He keeps jumping out of airplanes in the middle of the night and sleeping in fields. I always thought he was a little strange...

So we're doing pretty great out here! We're cleaning up the house and getting ready for baby (still nameless--we're hoping she just tells us what her name is when she gets here) and enjoying life!

And here are some pictures:

Beginning of the third trimester to two weeks ago (week 36). The only pictures I took. Whoops!

The lovely coffee table Daniel refinished for our living room! Much better than the ugly black one I got from Walmart...

My stinky husband :)

Sometimes I feel crafty. And I'm a dummy, so I got home buying for dummies. I don't feel like as much of a dummy any more.

Harley enjoyed playing fetch at the lake.

She always thinks she needs attention... silly pup!

There was a review of the 82nd--pretty cool to watch! Daniel is towards the front, I didn't think to take a picture until they had passed.

The lovely ocean (and my not-so-lovely feet)

My creepy husband. I love him.
