27 Days and Counting...

27 days until we take possession of our new house!! It is going to be the longest almost 4 weeks EVER!! We don't move in until 2 weeks after that because in that 2 weeks David and his dad have to install the bamboo floors, the carpet company needs to install the carpet, the concreters need to put in the driveway and patio, we need to lay the top soil and turf in the yard and then we need to move out of this house and have it cleaned. It is going to be a BIG 2 weeks!!! But I can't wait!!

Mia is still walking up a storm. She just goes from 1 corner of the house to the other and back and forth and back and forth. She loves carrying things while she walks - everything from the phone, remote controllers, books, stuffed animals etc. You name it - she will carry it! She has recently become obsessed with my iPod and loves to make the screen light up.

We took Mia to the park a couple of days ago and it was late in the afternoon. She couldn't get on a swing straight away as they were occupied but eventually she got on one. When it was time to go we took her out of the swing and put her back in her bike and she cried and cried. She didn't want to leave. We gave her another few minutes of swinging but it was definitely time to go as it was getting really cold and starting to get dark. We put her back in her bike for the walk home and she cried and cried. She didn't want to leave!! She stopped crying when we carried her but it was too long a walk to carry her the whole way so she just cried and cried. Here is the before and after...

Not much news other than that. Things are quite busy getting quotes for various things having to do with the house but that will be over soon enough!! Thank goodness!!
