Ok, so I've been gone from the blog world for a few days due to the fact that during my shower on Monday night at 9:00 our power went completely out. I finished the rest of my shower in the dark and then found Gavan in the living room trying to finish feeding Jaylen and lighting candles and getting batteries in the flashlight. We called Jeffrey & Miranda to see if they had power; they did and said to come on over. So with a flashlight we packed some things and headed to their house, which is only like 2 blocks away.

Now, 2 days later we are still living at the Lawrence Motel and have completely invaded their space. It's been interesting living here with a 3 week old baby! She's such a good baby so it hasn't been too bad. Miranda was off work Tuesday, Jeffrey has test block this week so he hasn't been here that much and Gavan went to work Tuesday at noon and today. We are just going to our house each day to get more clothes, bottles, burps, formula, etc and checking to see if the power is back on. I had to go empty the freezer/fridge today so things don't start stinking and leaking. It was 51 degrees in the house today and I was there for about 45 minutes, which was plenty cause I was freezing.

There are only a handful of houses on our street without power so I'm sure we won't be on the top of the list to get to. We are so thankful for Miranda & Jeffrey for opening their home to us and can't thank them enough for putting us up for the time being. Jaylen had a doctor's appointment today to make sure she got above birth weight and she was much above it! She was 6 pounds 2 ounces today, which is 10 oz gained in the last wee! She's getting bigger everyday and we can't believe how much she has already changed.

Oh yeah, did I mention that we brought Paisley (lab) over here and they have Cooper (morkie)? We'll just say that they don't get along too well so it's like we have 2 toddlers we have to keep from fighting constantly. Fun for us!!!!!!
