This week, we've had each of the children's meals... One last time in this house.  It's bittersweet.  So many (all???) of the original meals were in this house.  And now, the last time.

Monday night, we had Bobby & Maya's meal: lasagna, salad, and garlic bread.  One set of their godparents joined us.

Tuesday night, we had Alexander's meal: tuna fish sandwiches and tomato soup.  It's fitting that my calm, peaceful baby had his meal after my yoga class. :)

Wednesday night, we had Nicholas's meal: pork chops, rice & beans, and corn bread.  (Sadly, I couldn't get sweet/ripe plantains).  We invited Peter's parents to dinner.

Thursday night, tonight, we are having Sophia's meal: polish sausage, pierogi, brocolli, and garlic english muffins.  Her godmother, Sarah, is joining us, after our run.

But it isn't just meals.  The entire day, it's been "the last".  Their last breakfast in the house.  Their last morning nap in the house.  Their last lunch... their last bath... their last Kung Fu Panda and last afternoon nap.  Tonight, it will be their last sleep here.  It seems crazy.  A little less than a year ago, we brought them home here for their first night and now, here we are, a few days before Halloween, and it is their last things here.

It's been a good 3+ years.  I started blogging in this house.  I had so many hopes here.  I remember a security guard at our main library telling me "New house, new baby".  How happy I was that she was right.  Sept 14th, we met Dr. Lee; Sept. 15th, we moved in.  And Oct. 27th, we conceived Nicholas and Sophia.  What a gift.  What a wonderful gift.

And so, here we are, my last post in this house...  Good-bye house.  I hope you make another family as happy as you've made us. :)
