Moving: Part 5 - The House Tour

I think this might be the post that a lot of people have been waiting for. So, without further ado...this is our house:

From the back side. If you ever come to visit me, the driveway will naturally take you around to the back side of the house. Please use the back door. We have only opened the front door to move stuff in and other then that, it stays locked.
The living room...still a work in progress. We are waiting for some new windows that are supposed to be installed soon. So, we don't really have this room set up at all. I think it will undergo a few changes yet, but it works for now.
The kitchen when you look in from the living room.
In the kitchen looking at the living room. It is a pretty nice set up, though the stove is really far away from everything else.
The dining area. We really like the "L"-shaped counter and how it divides this space.
Upstairs now. Can you guess whose room this is? As you can see, we have a bit of work to do here. But, we have the basic elements. We just got our car seat/stroller combo and the crib is lying on the floor in the box waiting to be assembled. I will post new pictures once the baby's room is finished.
The little room, which we are using for storage and I have declared my card-making/scrap booking area as well. That way I don't have to haul all of my supplies up and down the stairs.
The bathroom. Everything is pretty standard here. Though the toilet is really close to the tub.
And our room with our new bed! There is a closet to the left and a dresser to the right, but you don't need pictures of those.

So, that is our house, minus the basement. The basement is pretty basic. It is all cement, which is nice, since we did think some of it was dirt at first. The laundry is down in the basement, but it has its own room, so that is nice.

In the next post I think I will highlight some of the interesting things we have discovered about this house. Some are really cool and some are really weird.

Nope. We are renting it. It will most likely be home for the next two years or so.

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
