We are officially out of our old house and moved into our new house. We signed the closing papers for the sale of our house yesterday. It's not quite official yet as there is still one more thing that has to go through, but we are getting close! I can't wait for that chapter to be behind us.
I also can't wait to finally be all settled into our new house. We love the house and the extra space. It's actually bigger than our old house, which is nice. However, it wasn't very clean when we moved in. The previous renters had a dog and there is dog hair literally everywhere. It also had a very definitive dog smell, and I still get a whiff of it over a week later. It has reinforced the fact that I am so not an animal person. I still can appreciate a good animal story or your cute furbaby pictures though. The owner swears they had the carpets professionally cleaned, and I believe that he thinks they did, but I think he was taken to the cleaners (pun intended). When I vacuumed again yesterday, for the fourth time and still got a ton of dog hair which I could clearly see in my Dyson.... Yeah, I'm not convinced. I told Tony that it will be worth it for my own peace of mind to pay for the carpets to be cleaned ourselves so we KNOW it has been done. Besides that, Ayden has decided that the carpet is the very best thing in the world to eat. I can't even begin to tell you how many little pieces of carpet I have pulled out of his mouth already.

In addition to the carpets, I've been scrubbing down the walls, windowsills, and cupboards. We hired someone to come in and clean our old house. I made so many day trips back and forth with the babies to just get things packed up, that I also decided it was worth it to have someone else do the cleaning there. I was just too overwhelmed to get it all done by myself. Tony's dad delivered the last load of stuff from our old house here last night. Now our garage is a mess of stuff that needs to be organized and put away.
While I've been working on cleaning and putting stuff away, Tony has been baby proofing like crazy. All the cupboard doors and drawers within baby reach. Every time we think there is a spot that doesn't need it, Ayden proves us wrong. I finally broke down and had Tony baby proof my china hutch. I didn't want to drill into it, but unless we want to leave it empty, it had to be done. I put 2 things in the very back of the cupboard and Ayden crawled inside to get them. Sigh...
Tony has a 4 day work trip to Texas next week. My Aunt D will be coming to stay with us so she can help with the babies and getting our house put together. It is near impossible to get anything done with two toddlers running around and getting into everything. Plus, my Aunt D is AMAZING at getting things done. She also cooks for us. I'm also just excited to see her. One of these days, I'm hoping she can come for a visit without me putting her to work! Haha!
Well, I should actually be getting some unpacking done while the babies are asleep. I've been dying to get back to the blogging world though and we finally have internet! I'll leave you with some pictures from this last week.
|They like the new seating arrangement!|
|Moving problems. He got himself stuck! haha!|
|These double doors push open from the outside, but not from the inside. |
He found himself stuck again! Rylee came to the rescue.
|They love having their own little play corner.|
