On the Move

So this was Leah and I a year ago packing up the moving truck at our house in Wausau to move to Saint Louis. Sometimes it seems like it was yesterday and other days it semms like years ago.

Well, this week we are at it again, moving that is. For a month or so now we have been looking for a house to rent as we are swiftly outgrowing our apartment and our lease is coming up at the end of Sept. We found a winner of a home over the weekend and signed a new lease yesterday afternoon. We are able to get into the new place next week so we can be settled before the baby gets here.

Interestingly, the landlord had to choose between renting to us and another family that looked at the house at the same time. He was totally taken in by Leah and "wants her to live in his house." Guess he wasn't scared off by her running hotlaps across the hardwood floors and leaving finger prints on the windows!

Now I am trying to decide if I was more crazy last year with packing up the entire house with a one year old while my husband was already gone to MO or this year with a two year old and being 9 months pregnant. I'm feeling a bit stressed now but I know that I will be thrilled to be out of this apartment and settled when this baby gets here. My other option was to wait and try to pack and move with a 2 year old and an infant which doesn't sound fun either!

So as of next week, this will be home!
