Big News!!

So I know it's been awhile since I've really posted anything of substance but I have some really good reasons. 

Yes, I said reasons. Plural.

First, we bought a new house!! It has more bedrooms. A bigger yard. A fireplace. It's not a condo. So many pluses.

Then, we had to sell our place which meant we had to get it ready. Wow, was that not fun. We shipped our dog off to the in-laws for a week, hid all/most of Avery's toys and actually made the bed for a change. We listed on a Tuesday morning and had an offer by Wednesday night. Great!!

Not so great....the closing date for both house is the last day of school. Which I can't take off, obviously. So I'll go to work in the morning from my old house, hope everything goes well with the move and come home to a new house. Crazy.

But, I have saved the best news for last....on top of all of the house news we are also having a BABY!!

Which means that I have been dealing with all this while in the first trimester and super-tired. The baby is due in early November, so I am about 10 weeks right now and almost through the tiredness and everything else that goes with the start of a pregnancy. So far it's been so different than my first pregnancy (no morning sickness!!!) and I am looking forward to being in the new house, getting a nursery ready again and moving Avery into her big girl room. 

So much life all at once.

Congrats! That's a lot of big things happening but nice to have them all at the same time. Enjoy the pregnancy as it will go super fast, the second one seems to go faster, but with all your other excitement in your life it will just make it go even faster (or seem to).
