I have gotten so far behind in updating the blog. We have been so busy working on the house and starting to prepare for Bubba’s arrival. Here are some of the things we have done, that I hope to update more in depth later.
We got our grass planted (thanks to Daniel’s dad) which was a huge undertaking. Dan’s mom watched the girls so I could help outside since it took 3 of us all day to get the grass in and a few hours on several other days to wrap up the project. The result- we now have grass! I will get pictures up later.
Since our biggest outside project was finally finished, we were able to move inside to get some painting done. We got the laundry room painted, shelves moved, and new cabinets hung. All we need to get is a laundry sink and some countertops put in and we are in business! I am so excited and it looks great!
We also painted the nursery the other day (pictures will hopefully come soon). This is the first time we are able to paint a nursery in our house so we took the opportunity to make it special for our little boy. Hard to believe that our due date is in 9 weeks. Time has been flying by so fast and there is still so much to be done.
We started a MOPS program today and Savannah has been ecstatic. We missed the last meeting due to a last minute appointment with the MFM specialist (to check to make sure a slight problem would not be an issue for the baby- thankfully it will not affect him at all). She was really upset that we had to miss MOPS last time. First thing she said to me today was- “The kids there played with me Mom!”. She does not have a lot of kids around her age and Avery is still in the parallel play stage so Savannah gets disappointed often that there is not someone to play with her on her level.
That is all I can think of for now.
Here are some pictures since we have moved in. It is still kind of messy, furniture is not quite where we want it all, and we are still working on a few rooms, but here is a sneak peek:
I know. I am totally behind on house posts, but we have been super busy. I am hoping once things calm down just a bit, I will be able to update with pictures of the house, etc. We moved in last Saturday and have been unpacking and such ever since. We still have one more load to get from the other house tomorrow and that should be the last of it. Then, we will still have to clean and paint the rental and we will be done.
We are right on schedule to be done! What does that mean? It means our house will be done tomorrow! We have our walk through scheduled for Monday and then they will fix the minor things and hand over the house sometime next week! We should be able to move in by next weekend barring any problems.
Here are some recent pictures of the progress on the house:
Some of the pictures would not orient correctly. Sorry!
There is, of course, new progress on the house every day. The house is just about buttoned up and framing is about complete. We have walls outside the house, on both stories, a roof, and there are only a few more things to finish framing- like the bonus room. We should be getting our front porch poured any day now, and our windows are set to go in soon. The roof, siding, and trim should all be completed soon! When you walk around inside, it actually looks like a house now, and the rooms are easy to envision complete. We are so blessed with the progress that has been made, and are so excited for the continued progress to completion!
And here, as promised, are the long awaited pictures!
