catching up.

Last month I said good-bye to the home we made a family in and to all the life long friends I made in El Paso.

Since it would take awhile for the movers to bring our stuff to upstate NY, Husband suggested Felix and I stay with my family in Wichita Falls. For nearly a month, we enjoyed much needed family time while my sweet husband worked and found us our new home. 

I LOVED being home. There really is nothing like seeing your parents and siblings love on your daughter. Felix loved it! and I loved all the sleep ;) It makes me sick not being close to family. Sigh. 
Oh and THIS finally happened!!! It just so happened that Phoenix was in town visiting her brother who happens to live near my parent's. It was so late when we finally met up that all we managed to take was this grainy selfie. Take my word on it, she is so beautiful and just as nice in person. Bunny, I can't wait to hug you again!

We sure missed Chip all that time. It was the sweetest reunion at the end of the month. 
Saying bye to all my friends and family never gets easier. Felix with my twinkie, her Mama Two. I am so thankful for all the time we got to spend together. 

You guys... traveling with a baby by car across country -- I don't even know how we did it! Felix was pretty great considering but there were parts were she was downright miserable (that 3rd photo in particular cracks me up!) To drive from Wichita Falls to Elmira is 21 hours. We made it in three days, stopping two nights. Lots of snacks and changing her in the car while she drank her bottle were saving graces. I am glad I didn't bother with changing tables at gas stations! 

Somehow, thank God (and my husband's great driving!) we made it to our new home. Here's to new adventures!

And of course, our biggest news... if you're a follower on instagram (@dolcemicaela) you already know this: 
 Felix's baby sister will be here in December!!! 

More on that later... 

For now, I feel like unpacking will never get done!

Eeeee, still so excited about your news and I love all your photos, seeing you and Marianne together always makes me smile. Is it weird that my inner yoga person is jealous of Felix's flexibility though? probably :)

Take care lovely xx

Claire said...

Faiza said...

So happy to hear that you made it to Elmira although I am sure it was tough to leave such a big part of your heart behind in Wichita Falls.

Hope that Elmira is treating you well Sweet Micaela!

Sandra said...

Aw, baby Felix looks so happy with her family! I'm so excited for your big move, and especially for Felix's baby sister! What a perfect Christmas it's going to be. :)

Hope to see more updates once you get all settled in your new home.

xo, sandra

Love bug! It was my absolute pleasure to give you that long awaited hug! I'm glad you posted the photo even though it was a bit grainy. I'm actually taking my time on writing you a long letter about that... :)
