So it’s been 2 months since I’ve posted any updates. My last entry was short and sweet. Stefano started crawling in September. About a week or so later he was pulling himself up on furniture and shortly after began cruising.
Dante got his first prosthesis with a bending knee…. which doesn’t really bend all that much…. we have a follow up visit on Monday so I’ll be addressing it then. Maybe he’s just not tall enough?? Oh well.
We’re preggers again, as most of you family and friends already know. I’m 16 weeks along today. Yes, we’ll be finding out the sex of the baby. No, I’m not telling you all when that will be, you’re just going to have to wait until we make the announcement. Hah!
And we finally moved into our new old rent-to-own house! We’ve had the floors re-done, a painter come in to assist my dad who has bent over backwards to help with painting and some other repairs (which has been a mega-blessing), and some heating kinks taken care of. Despite the giant holes the expenses are burning in our pockets, it feels so good to be in our own house, again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What prompted me to blog, at all, tonight was what I accomplished earlier today during nap time. We have, what seems like, a lifetime of updates to get done on this house… but first we need to just get unpacked, un-cluttered, and utilize every space possible and just get comfortable, darn it! So in a little under two hours I tackled the enclosed porch that looked like this:
…and now looks like this (pictures taken post-cushion-covers-being-dried):
The kiddos appreciated the extra play-space…
Good day. Patting myself on the back. AND I made a lasagna! Come on!
