Happy Friday, everyone! It’s so fun to think we’ve been living in our new house for a full two months now :) We are all loving it, and I still can’t believe how perfect its been for our growing family. The tree buds in the backyard are sprouting, such sweet shades of light green and yellow. The other night before dinner, Zack and Maxwell went outside to do a little yard work. Before we could all sit down to eat, a little blondie I know had to take a quick bath! He was so dirty, playing outside in the yard without shoes on does that you know ;) Natalie is getting so close to walking — sweet girl has taken 2 or 3 steps on her own but won’t do more than that. She has quite the team cheering for her! Each week we make a little more progress with setting up our new home. Last weekend I found a few thrifted pieces to add to our home, and the kids got a new rug for their bedroom (not thrifted). I’m still on the hunt for a dresser for the nursery (and possibly dreaming of a rocking chair in there), but I feel really happy with how our home is unfolding.
We’re officially on baby watch, counting down the days until my due date (which is officially this month, yeow!) and feeling anxious and excited and a tiny bit scared, let’s be honest, as I begin to experience all the discomforts of pre-labor. There’s truly nothing I’ve ever experienced like the feeling of holding a sweet brand new baby, so I write all of this with sweet anticipation. Zack is absolutely loving his new job in Detroit (he’s a Senior Producer at an Editorial company), and knowing just how much he loves being reuniting with a few past colleagues makes me just as happy. We’re enjoying having him home for dinner, and feeling overall less stressed about work. Life around here is good!
What’s going on in your neck of the woods that is bringing you all sorts of happy? Any exciting new changes? By the way, I read a comment on Instagram sharing a tip for keeping your tulips fresh: place a penny or two in the water vase to perk up droopy tulips. Has anyone tried that? :)
