Maren's nightly routine

Pull out the boppy. Climb on mommy. Ask non stop until mommy gives in. Listen closely to the beginning, its the best.

Someday soon my cute little baby will have a room to rest her weary head, instead of falling asleep on a little pillow in the living room and being transferred to a pack n play on the landing to the basement. Maren Potter shall have a room of her own! (she used to sleep in the master closet in Texas) but alas, no master closets for Maren in this house! Come to think of it, no big master closet in the new house either, but a bedroom of her own will be a lovely upgrade. ;) Oh, and Preston and Maija won't be complaining either about having their own rooms again.

We found a house!

5 months of looking and we finally found a house! If all goes well, we should be in our new house by the beginning of November. We are very excited.

Its 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 family rooms, eat in kitchen, formal dining room, nice big basement, rough in for another bathroom in the basement and a door that leads outside down there, 1965sq ft of space. The yard is lovely and has a super duper party deck! We even get to keep that neato entertainment center you see in the video below and the hammock out in the yard (thanks Pete!). Adam wishes the TV came with the entertainment center. Might have to get something fun to fill in the missing TV space. ;) YES, I AM BRAGGING, I AM EXCITED!

It does need some work to be done before we move in. We are going to paint the red walls in the living room a lighter color to brighten up the room and tile both of the bathrooms. The bathroom upstairs has carpet! Ewwww! We do have to make some changes to the railing on the stairs since the slats are a little too far apart and Maren can fit her head through them. Shouldn't be too hard though, I have an idea for that. Then we will take our time doing some other little updates here and there.

I forgot to tape a bunch of areas in the video, but at least you get the idea. Don't mind the mindless chatter on it either. :)

Whaddya think?
