Our house has the most amazing natural light ever ( and I thought I was spoiled with the lighting in our beautiful apartment! ). I rarely have to turn on a light before the evening arrives and we are loving soaking in the sunshine and light and saving on that electricity bill, wink wink!
We wondered how Graeme would do with the move and he seems to be doing rather well, aside from keeping himself awake and giggling away at who-knows-what for about an hour before finally falling asleep for his nap. Cal-girl thinks she has died and gone to heaven with our backyard, even though a little squirrel has become her nemesis and likes to run back and forth in front of our sliding glass door while she naps in the sun.
Tonight, we are happily accepting a piano into our home and I am positively giddy! We have also been looking for a guest bed as we will need one for all of our family that will be coming after Job's arrival; friends of ours are getting rid of their guest bed to make room for other things and we are the happy recipients!
Last week, I was told that local friends are throwing a shower for our Job and I was so ecstatic and thankful. There are always a few things needed no matter if it is your first baby or baby number twenty-seven, right? That brings me to a question for you readers-- I've used Target's brand of diapers for Graeme since he was just a few months old, but never used them when he was a newborn. Have any of you? I would love to hear your thoughts on how they work on newborns.
Speaking of newborn, I finally packed a hospital bag last evening and halfway expect to go into labor tonight. Kidding. But that is exactly what happened with Graeme. I packed my bag ( a little over two weeks before my due date ) and the next night I went into labor!
I hope to share more progress soon, but am really thankful for all that God has allowed to be done in the short week that we have lived at our new home. I'm hosting a painting party this Friday morning, so I will have lots of progress to report from that, I am sure!
