We did it!

My biggest news first....we've bought a house! :) Well we've signed a contract anyway, assuming all the paperwork gets done and goes through ok we should be in our own home by the end of January. We made a big decision and decided to move to a whole new area, because the houses there are much cheaper than they are in the Huon Valley. Although we would ideally love to find a house here to buy, it just wasn't happening so we made a move on New Norfolk. It won't be so bad, it is closer to Mum and slightly closer to everyone up North. Plus hubbies Uncle and Aunt live there too so we won't be totally alone :) I'm really quite bummed that Ben won't be attending the school I had wanted him to, but I'll just have to get over that. This is the house here.

Other than that, the breaking news is that Jake took his very first two steps alone last night :) He is just 8 days shy of 9 months. It was pure accident, he didn't realise he wasn't being held. the last couple of days he's been working on standing alone, keeping his balance. One minute he's on the floor and the next he gets himself up on his knees, then one knee and then slowly stands up! When he gets wobbly he squats a little until he gets his balance. So cute to see :) I give him the two weeks until Xmas to be walking much more. I was gonna save this pic as I'm sending it to some of you in Xmas cards but I just have to share.....

YAY JAKE!! Oh gosh you will know yourself once he is walking haha What a smart little man!! Chase was walking at 8.5 months too, he couldn't wait to be able to follow Jaidan everywhere.
Good news with the house :) Lets just hope it's really NOT haunted!!
