So excited. I’m about to have some keys in my hand.

Today is the day! We’re going to the closing at 4pm. So we’re very excited. Any local people who read this who wanna come to our painting party on Thursday evening are welcome! Just let me know if you are into it! (There’s a free dinner in it for you…) I’m just so relieved that it’ll all be over in a matter of hours!! Well, I mean, I guess we have to move too. Moving is gonna be the easy part though.

This post is really just for pictures. Lots and lots of baby pictures…

Blueberries and oats. It was a win.


It was one of those 5am days with John. It’s nice though. Hard to get up, but really peaceful and slow and dark. I just knit and drink my coffee and wait for Jeff and Vera to get up.

She got sick. Her first official sickness. Feverish and coughing and made of snot… We snuggled a lot those days. She handled it well though, but was just so sad looking. She couldn’t breathe through her nose very well, so she opted to go without her pacifier for those days. I reintroduced it afterwards and she’ll have nothing to do with it! She quit it cold-turkey! I’m kinda glad for it, I don’t have to try to wean her off of it in the future. I kinda miss the little bugger though. I guess it was a comfort to me, too. Anyway, that’s mashed up food in her hair.

 

Feeling better.  πŸ™‚

Oh it’s so close! Time to go buy a house!

      Thank you! Your offer is so sweet. How are you feeling lately?

      It took about 2.5 hours all in all. At first it didn’t even look like we’d close because everyone was so disorganized. Both our agent and the title lady said it was a very unusual sale/closing. All said and done, we made out like total bandits!

        Feeling good! I think this is the best time of pregnancy so far– not feeling queasy but I’m not so huge to be uncomfortable next.
        I’m so happy for you and your family in this new house! Can’t wait to see the first pictures! πŸ™‚

      Thanks!

      Haha, yeah, just tell everyone to wait until their kid is too stuffed up to breathe, and just hide them all… I could make millions!

    Hooray for houses! I can’t wait to see it, and if I was closer, I would totally help you pack boxes and move stuff in. But I’m not closer. πŸ™
    Also, I love your baby. I love her sick and upside down and in a hoodie sweatshirt that’s way too big. I have to say my favorite of this round is the one of her and Jeff on the floor, though the hoodie one and the one of her laughing in your arms are close seconds.
    I love you, too.

      Oh, we’d have such fun if you were here… I can see it now- I’d get a special bunch of chili chocolate just for you…

      Oh, I know. Aren’t they so sweet together? I can’t get enough.

      Oh… but bad news sorta. I am so lame and haven’t sent you your poster. SO LAME! Anyway, I got it out with very good intentions to send it before we moved this weekend. Well, Vera got it and chewed a little hole in it. I’m going to send it anyway, but let me know where you got it and I’ll do some detective work and get you another. Stinkin baby…. I’m so sorry!!!
