Just another day in paradise...

at least for me anyway! We finally closed on our house and now we are having carpet and laminent installed. Did I mention that we've been living here a good 6 months already, so in order to install flooring we had to "pack it all up" basically? Luckily, I have a husband who is so awesome at organizing stuff like that! I didn't have to lift a finger. Anyway, so for the last two days (and probably the next two days at least) we have been sleeping on our mattress because our bed is taken apart, and we can't get into our kitchen-because all of the family and living room furniture are in there! To make matters even more exciting, we are now worrying ourselves sick that Oso (our puppy) will come and decide to - well, let's just say leave his mark everywhere. Anyway, all that aside, I am very excited that we are actually homeowners and are starting to make plans to really make this place our HOME.
More exciting than all of that is that as I sit here surfing the web (mostly Scrapshare and SB.com) I can feel the first REAL movements of this little person that is growing inside me. I am 20 weeks and 5 days and these little bumps are no longer just "flutters" that I feel. I am happy as I sit in this quiet house, my 3 girls soundly sleeping, my dh in the other room working hard to get all of the last minute details ready for Sunday, my sweet little puppy in another empty room snoozing in his doggy bed, and me sitting on the couch in a beautiful room with the smell of fresh new carpet surrounding me and new life stirring within me. I am truly and wonderfully blessed!
