New Home Adventures

We have been busy and I am so behind on blogging... oh and blogger is being dumb today, so sorry that my paragraphs aren't separated...
Adventures of homeownership... Week one: The move was a success, but we are still surrounded by boxes! I really hope I can get organized soon... Moving for a toddler is NOT easy. I don't know if it is the fact that she enters her terrible twos in exactly one month, or if this adjustment is just hard, but I have had a demon child this week, screaming over everything and not sleeping well AT ALL! I am really regretting the big girl bed thing... She was doing great before the move with it though so maybe it is just this adjustment. Bird's nests are not easy to get out of your dryer vent. The poor baby birds keep making their way down the vent into our laundry room, getting stuck, and we keep returning them outside. Please learn to fly so we can evict you and not worry about it smelling like fried chicken when I want to dry my clothes!!
A backyard is the best thing that has ever happened to Agnes. First thing she wants to do when she gets up is run outside. Speaking of yard, it is awesome and big, but has been let go for quite some time. The grass looks like it hasn't been watered in years. Luckily we know a really awesome sprinkler guy (my dad) and he has helped us redo the sprinkler system. We found that many pipes were broken and just in a matter of 3 days that the sprinklers have been running, the yard is already looking SO much better! Oh yeah and it is good to note that running water with broken pipes may almost flood your new neighbor's basement. we love our new home though! It does need some work in places, but we are loving it. Now I am feeling a sense of urgency to get it all together because I am having a baby soon!!! Ahhh... I haven't even had time to think about this baby. Did I mention that I am 33 weeks and had Agnes at 36 weeks???!!!! that is 3 weeks potentially! ahh... Things are looking better than last time though, so we are hoping to making it much further. I am going in for weekly Non Stress Tests from now on, so we will see.

Congratulations on being a homeowner!!! That is so exciting! :) Moving is hard in general, but especially with a toddler and being 33 weeks pregnant! I hope you're starting to feel a little more settled these days and that those, little baby birds have safely started flying and are out of the dryer vent! We just moved into our new house 6 months ago, so let me know if you need some help unpacking and organizing- I am getting pretty good at it these days!!!
