Milestones: Good and Bad

Well, it has been a long time since we have posted anything, but looking at Aaron and Julie's cool blog has inspired Anna. Now she will just have to figure out how to make it cool like theirs.

We just moved to California about two weeks ago and have gotten an apartment in Oakland. Tim is doing an internship for the summer with a construction company in San Francisco. He is working on a high school as Project Engineer. He is excited because he will get to see all sides of a project. He is the middle man communicator between everyone and is happy that he will get to do a lot of paperwork and organizing.

We were able to find an apartment with air conditioning and a washer and dryer (this is nearly impossible in the Bay Area) which makes Anna VERY happy! And it is a lot cheaper than living in San Francisco. Luckily, one of Tim's bosses lives close to us and they will be carpooling.

Anna had to take Abram to the doctor today to for pink eye. He's taking it pretty well, but HATES his medicine. He was also weighed today. He now weighs 20 pounds (which is what I expected)! He's a big boy and we love him that way. Whenever we go to the store we get at least two or three comments on how blue his eyes are and how chubby his cheeks are. Tim and Anna feel blessed to have a little boy that brings so much joy to people. The best part is that he smiles at anyone that will talk to him and that just melts peoples hearts.

Anna and Abram have spent the week with relatives in Fairfield, CA and Tim came to visit. He said that in the two days that he hasn't seen us Abram has changed a lot, so I know all of you see a huge change.

I am including two videos/slideshows (if they work) of Abram when he was born and now. He has definitely changed a lot.

I'm so glad to see some updated pictures! I've been dying to see how big Abram is. Your blog looks great, and if you want any tips, I would be more than welcome to give you any I have. I'm glad I inspired someone! Keep them coming, ok?! We love to know how you are doing in Oakland, and how sweet little Abram is as well.
