As it turns out, setting up the house is taking up a great deal of my time. I’m enjoying it immensely but am also starting to crave a bit of normalcy back in my life.
The kids are having a lot of fun in their new spaces. I was a little worried about Emily’s sleep getting disturbed but she’s been doing so well with all the changes.
Luke and David had a sleepover in Luke’s room earlier this week since my parents were sleeping in David’s bed. Because of that, Luke slept on his old mattress which was formerly on his toddler bed at the old house. I think he was reminded about how comfortable it was because he requested to sleep on it again the next night, even though his new twin bed was available for him! It wasn’t a problem to do so, so Luke slept on his old mattress on the floor in his new room. It was sweet to peek in on him through the monitor and know that he was happy as ever to be sleeping on his favorite bed.
I’ll give him a little time to see if he warms up to the new bed before putting his old mattress away. He’s going from a firm crib mattress to a very soft foam mattress so I can completely understand that it is a bit of an adjustment!
David is very proud of his bathroom and has shown a great deal of responsibility since moving in. He can turn on the water in his shower by himself, brush his teeth independently, and takes care of his own dirty clothes as well. He did most of these things at the old house, but it’s sweet to see him take ownership of his new space and be proud to do some “big boy” stuff in there.
I’m hoping to get back to work on Friday and work on blog content! I’ve been jotting down topics I want to cover here and I just need some time to sit down and type it out! Thanks for your patience in the meantime, and for all your excitement and decor tips on Instagram!
While I have you, here are a few home things that I’ve either mentioned on Instagram or have my eye on!
This is such a pretty runner. I love that it’s a busy pattern so hopefully it won’t show dirt!
While browsing Amazon for towel rods and other home essentials, I happened to add this tank to my cart. I have loved the z supply t-shirts so I wanted to give the tanks a try! I’ll let you know if it’s good! It seems like a similar option to the Madewell whisper tanks, just with a more relaxed fit and longer hem!
