Getting Settled...finally!

Ah. big sigh. We finally got quite a bit of stuff put away this weekend. It feels so good to get somewhere close to back to normal.
This move has just been one obstacle after another. The latest being that we can't seem to get our wireless router to work with the new DSL service... Of course that's after the obstacle of having to have the telephone company come out and repair wires to even get our phone service going.
Anyway... things are finally starting to settle down around here. I just hope D starts adjusting soon. He is really wearing everyone out. He is just so out of sorts. I'm sure that he's been stressed out from the move - first it was the couple of weeks spent packing, then the move itself... then the 5 or so days of staying in a motel, then moving stuff from one new house to another. He's so off schedule. He's in unfamiliar surroundings. Everything has changed for him. And everyone around him has been stressed and busy for the past month or so. He has digressed a little. He's back to putting everything in his mouth. And now he is starting to have more jealousy over baby B. This morning when I was feeding her rice cereal D came over and opened his mouth. So I gave him a bite - and he spit it right out! A little bland for him I suppose ;)
Amazingly, baby B has remained pretty content through everything. Even with teething! One of her bottom teeth broke through while we were staying in the motel. Last night dad was holding them both and B reached over and plucked the nuk right out of his mouth and laughed. D thought it was really funny too, so he puckered it out of his mouth for her to do it again. It was too cute ;)
And 10-year-old daughter M has been quite the helper! And she seems to be adjusting to the new school great. She's very outgoing and makes friends easily. The people at the school were extremely friendly and nice! I'm really impressed with the new school so far! They are much more involved and excited about everything than her school in Wisconsin was. I'm really excited about getting involved in the school here.
