Hello there! Sorry for such a slow week. Things have been anything but slow over here, and moving preparations are ramping up and actually starting to feel real.
We’re in that weird transitional pre-move period where our current house is trashed, but I have no motivation to pick up or organize everything since it is all just going into boxes in a matter of days.
Even the dishes have been embarrassingly neglected.
Our living room currently has no coffee table. Our space is really cramped in our current townhouse, and I moved it two weeks ago when I hosted moms group at my house (to make room for babies to play!). Since then, I’ve enjoyed a little more carpet space for my now crawling baby. It is amazing how much smaller our home felt the minute he became mobile (not to mention all the stairs – yikes!).
And so our bedroom is hosting a coffee table covered in junk. It is most definitely time to go.
It’s strange that our move is actually finally here, as we’ve been house hunting and planning for months. Of course in those months, Cullen has become much easier to manage and get out with, and we’ve discovered all these great things to do in our neighborhood – and now we are leaving it!
I’m excited about our new place (which is about 25 minutes from where we are now), but I’m also nervous about learning a new neighborhood, and all that comes with being a new space. Funny that I’m such a creature of habit, but change has sort of been the theme of my life these last few years. Hopefully I’m getting better at it.
I am most definitely looking forward to having a lot more room for Cullen and the dogs. That was the big motivator for us in finding a new place. We absolutely love living right here in the heart of the city, but the cramped quarters and teeny backyard have been tough on our big pups. I hope they love their new yard!
I’m currently trying to figure out how to pack our entire house, while also taking care of a little monster who has decided that naps are not fun. Do not be fooled by this innocent face.
He has grown bored of crawling and is now working on figuring out how to stand. Downward dog is the new favorite trick.
I think he’s going through a big growth spurt – both developmentally (although I’m obviously joking about him standing anytime soon) and physically. He is noticeably taller this week than last. And because of that, sleep and naps have been very unpredictable, and virtually nonexistent.
Keys to the new house in hand tonight, and moving boxes arrive tomorrow! I have seven days to get us packed and ready – wish me luck!
