We’re finally moving!

She’s cute, yet unhelpful.

So we’re finally moving back home! We’re seriously seriously excited. Our grand plan after having a baby was to be able to move to Atlanta (about 2.5hrs from our home in Birmingham, Alabama) in the early Fall of 2011. Needless to say, that was a pipe dream. The job market in the States leaves something to be desired, and we couldn’t move home without a job offer. The hub began discussing a transfer within his company in August. Many many months (and a couple of different possible relocation cities) later, and we are actually moving to Atlanta – our first choice!

I can’t begin to explain how much this means to us. We’ve had a difficult time with Cora. She’s so wonderful, but she can’t, under any stretch of the imagination, be called an easy baby. Will detail all later, but I guess she’s what you might call a ‘high needs’ baby. Not being around family has been very difficult for me, and this hasn’t been the best eight months of my life. I’m just so so happy we’ll be in the same city as my sister and only 2.5hrs away from family in less than a month!

At any rate, we flew my sister over last week to help us pack, and our stuff is being shipped next week. No going back. It’s exciting and scary and sad, all wrapped up in one. We’ve had an amazing time in London, but it’s time to move home. The sunshine beckons.

More than a year since I posted. Pretty rubbish, I’d say. But considering I haven’t shared the blog with anyone yet, I hope to be forgiven. Um, by myself.

Well, without further ado, introducing Cora Delphine!

Cora Delphine

She’s 80% utter joy and 20% little rascal. Sweet little squish!

I plan to backlog this whole eight months, but until then, some pic spam.
