Single Digits... T-9

Wow... We are in single digits now.  The move is just slightly over a week away.  I continue to pack, and Peter & I load the POD (not that there is a lot of room), when we can.  We are going appliance shopping on Saturday for our new Fridge and Washer/Dryer. Then, dinner with friends.  But, at that point, we will be less than a week away.  I can't even fathom it!  I emailed with our mortgage person yesterday, and we are done...  There is nothing left to do but finish packing!  I can't believe it.  All the paperwork, etc,- finished.  Freaky!  In   9 days, we'll be first time homeowners! (Well, technically, the bank will be the homeowner, but we are 30 years away!)

Sunday is the annual NICU Halloween party.  Maya is dressing up as a tiger, and Bobby will be a monkey.  Seeing as he is learning how to climb over anything and everything, it's a fitting costume.  Initially, we had thought just PJs, but the ones I bought (his were 18m and hers 12m) didnt fit!  We had to cram them in for this picture!

So, we went to buy larger ones, and saw the costumes instead.  Happy Halloween indeed! :)  And they were half off because we waited to get them.  I can't wait to catch up with the nurses.  I'm also excited to see other parents and NICU babies, both to see how they are doing and to give hope that you baby/babies CAN come home and be healthy to other NICU-newbies.  That was always such a sigh of relief for me.

Well, the monkeys are currently playing in the former dining room/current play room, and, as much as I'd love to catch up more, I am really enjoying playing with them. :)

9 more days... Wow... Can't believe it!

It should be a fun time and becoming home owners is awesome. Wishing you happiness in every room of YOUR new home.

are their halloween pjs from old navy? all of their clothes seem to run really small! (my peanut naomi wears size 2T at ON!) good luck with becoming homeowners and your move. :)

Michele said...

Yes, they are ON. Bobby is in (gulp) 2T and Maya is in 18-24! She's wearing a pair of 12-18 jeans that are handmedowns from her godsister and they are tight! In Carter's, which is what she normally wears, she's a 12m even, and Bobby is 18m.
