Minneapolis Here We Come!

Well, we finally made a decision! We debated, talked and mostly prayed for weeks about where we should go this summer. Dallas lost out ultimately to the fact that family is in MN. Troy will be working for McKinsey which is a consulting company. He will be traveling quite a bit so we will see how that works for our little family. It will be so nice to be able to spend some quality time with family and friends over the summer. Over the next few months we will be looking for a furnished apartment that is close to downtown Minneapolis and close to the airport since we only have one car and Troy will be going between those two places each week. Crazy times ahead!! I'm so glad he is able to pursue his passion and hopefully he will find that this is the right place for him!

During February, while we were trying to decided between Dallas and Minneapolis, we had the opportunity to visit both companies. Consequently, Jack became quite the little traveler! Two weekends in a row we traveled on planes. Below there is a picture of his first time on the plane. He did so well!! We did discover the trick to having a happy baby is carrying the pre-made 2oz formula bottles so that we could feed him anytime there was an issue! :-) We don't give our kid food everytime he fusses normally, but we thought we'd preserve the sanity of those around us!! All in all, traveling with a kid is a lot more work than you'd think but now we have valuable tricks for anyone if you need them!

Below are some pictures from the past month...

Jack is wearing his Valentine's Day shirt: "I'm Banana's over Mommy!"
Sucking his thumb!
At Chicago O'Hare Airport
On the plane for the first time!
He loves the mirror - it always makes him smile!
He likes to help turn pages now during story time
Still loves the tub!
He's discovered how to play on his side but isn't quite able to roll from back to front yet...

Story time...

Bundled up for a walk!
So cute after his bath!
Mommy and Daddy got to go on a date while Auntie Amy stayed with Jack!
