We put our house on the market a week ago yesterday. The potential buyer that looked at the house just minutes after the sign went up made an offer and we signed a contract on Sunday! Only 4 days on the market in this economy is amazing! Aaaand we have a contract on the house just up the street! We're closing on both houses 7/24! God was definitely looking after us! I figure we deserved a break after dealing with Katie for the last 16mo! I just hope we haven't used it all up because I'm really praying for an easier baby this go around.
I'm sad to leave my wonderful laminate floors, but I'm most bummed to leave our garden. Eric and Kelton have put so much work into it. I don't think we're going to get to pick any corn before we leave, but I know we'll get plenty of onions, potatoes, yellow squash, zucchini, cucumbers, tomatoes and probably peppers.
I love getting mail. That must be something you never grow out of, because it's still totally fun even when you're old. We got this box in the mail from Carrie on Tues. I could smell the coffee beans before I even got the mail box open. I cannot wait to try the gluten free cinnamon roll mix, but I think I'll wait until we have a day where the high is less than 100 to turn my oven on. You know I'll put those Gymbo coupons to use and the little baby card she made about had me crying.
I've decided to start weaning Katie now so that we can take it really slowly. I'm not pumping anymore, so she gets 100% coconut milk in her bottle or sippy. We're lucky we have that alternative. We buy the original. I think because it's very slightly sweetened, it's a lot like breastmilk, which also has a sweet taste. I won't lie, I'm extremely excited at the prospect of eating normally again.
Right now I'm just eating whatever sounds good, which includes subway veggie delight for breakfast, graham crackers with frosting for dinner, peanut butter smeared on frosted mini wheats for lunch. I cannot wait until this passes as I've had some pretty rough days.
I've linked to my sister in law, Carrie, several times, but my mother in law, Yvette, is blogging now too. Check it out!
Tomorrow is weigh day for Katie. She was 19lbs 1oz last month and I really feel like she's gaining, so I'm hoping for 20+lbs! Keep your fingers crossed.
