Last October Sam applied for a job at his national office located in Wilton, CT. He went for an interview in January and shortly after got a job offer. After a few months of careful deliberation we decided to go for it. He will be working here for three years, after which he is guaranteed a position back in Seattle.
On May 24 we became The Fleetwood Four with the arrival of Hudson Samuel.
First Family Photo
Now 16 weeks old Hudson is an easy and happy baby who has gotten use to his sister poking and prodding him. Annabelle has adjusted to sharing Mommy and Daddy and loves her “Huddy Buddy”, sometimes too much. Sam and I feel blessed that we got two healthy, happy kids and hope they are this easy through the years.
Won't be long until he is holding her
After Hudson’s arrival we were lucky to have Sam home on paternity leave for three weeks. Much of which he spent getting the house ready to sell; along with cooking, cleaning, and wrangling Annabelle as I recovered. Over Fourth of July weekend with lots of help from family, and a few long days we put the finishing touches on the house and placed it on the market July 7th. All our hard work paid off and the house sold in two weeks.

Garage we repainted with lots of help from Sam's Mom (our biggest get the house ready to sell project)
Towards the end of July Sam, Hudson, and I went to look for a house in Connecticut. Annabelle stayed back and spent some quality time with all four grandparents. We had a limited time and filled it looking at twenty houses. The twentieth was our favorite and the one we are living in now. (Pictures and details coming soon)
Okay, one picture taken on our trip
All Packed Up
We lived in hotels out of suitcases for a week and a half and finally moved in September 3rd. So far so good, the last boxes were unpacked this weekend and it is starting to feel like home.
