I haven't been in much of a blogging mood for the past week or so. I think I'm just mentally exhausted from everything that is going on around me. The biggest of which is...
We're closing on the new house tomorrow!!! Yikes and Yay!! I have such mixed feelings about this. I'm excited for the great and needed changes the new house will bring. The convenience of having the boys' rooms on the main level, and not having to walk through their room to get to ours. No more creaky stairs. A driveway and garage! A nice big yard with room for a swingset for the boys. Lots of great things.
But I'm sad to be leaving our current house with all of the memories we have made in it.
Celebrating our first wedding anniversary.
Our first Thanksgiving here when my parents brought most of the food and I made my first pumpkin pie. I was so proud of my table setting. :)
Got Mom's approval on my pie :)
First snow...and it was a doozy!!
Our first Christmas was so exciting...getting to decorate an entire house and especially the mantle. I was in heaven.
Finding out my Grandpa had terminal cancer, and sitting on the stairs crying on the phone with my mom. Not all of the memories are wonderful.
Hosting a Mother's Day tea for my mom and mother-in-law. What a fun day that was.
Finding out we were going to be parents and telling my parents that they were going to be grandparents.
My baby shower...a great day with family and friends.
Spending many warm summer evenings on the porch swing with coffee in hand and a good magazine. My favorite spot in the house and I am going to miss it dearly.
Bringing the boys home and wondering what the heck we were going to do with them.
And the past 10 months learning how to be parents and going through the biggest roller coaster of our lives.
I know we will make many more new memories in the new house, the first being the boys' 1st birthday!! I can't even believe that is less than 2 months away. Insane. I'm trying to focus on these things, while still allowing myself to be sad as well.
BTW...anyone have tips on how to move successfully with two babies?
