Auntie Em', Auntie Em'


We moved out to join Bryan at his base in Kansas May 26th. Papa George and Uncle Joe so graciously hauled our things across country while we took a short flight out (3-4 hours tops). Edwin freaked out the first 10-15 minutes because of the cramped space, but he slept well. He was very bashful once we saw Daddy at the airport waiting for us, but they soon hit it off like old pals again. We live very near everything so it was a relaxingly short drive. Our new home is perfect for just the three of us. Edwin's room is the best part of the house.

He 'meows' at his lion

A well stocked kitchen

Sneaky picture taking...

I love nap time <3

His favorite hat

Our House in the Middle of...

A sea of dogs and excrement. Honestly, our building is nothing but other Army spouses and college kids (aka, lots of dogs and lots of poop.) The dogs down the hall are yappy little dachshunds, and they run out and lick Edwin whenever we're all in the hallway at the same time. He loves it! Most of the dogs are tiny little yappers, though there are a few bigger dogs that live downstairs. They're never out at the same time as us thank goodness. We must be the only people in our whole building without animals.

It has been an oppressively hot summer, so we unfortunately spend a lot of time inside watching his favorite shows and movies (Yo Gabba Gabba!, Pocoyo, Gnomeo & Juliet, etc) There is a nice little park up the hill from our apartment we play in each morning for an hour or two depending on the heat. Edwin picks up sticks and rocks of all shapes and sizes and hauls his goodies home to place on his windowsill. We're almost always the only ones at the park for some odd reason, though there is the occasional small herd of children or random jogger. One of our favorite indoor activities is to go to Hastings after dinner. We rent so many movies and Edwin enjoys running rampant around the books section. He likes to pick up the movie/television replica swords and 'Hi-yah!' Daddy and I.  He has a pretty consistent schedule, he's usually in bed by 9:30-10:00pm latest and it certainly helps that Bryan gets home at roughly the same time each evening.
