Homeowners! Caleb is super excited.
It's been a little hectic in these parts lately, with travelling, the holidays, and - the biggest news - we found our (hopefully forever!) home!
We've been looking to buy a house for a while now, and as it became late Fall, we were sure it'd be next Spring or Summer before any new homes came along. But, sure enough, a house we'd been eyeing dropped in price and we decided IT'S THE ONE.
Poppin' bottles of champagne
We're thrilled with the neighborhood of the house and that we can now walk into downtown - this was a "must have" for us because we've missed being able to walk to places like we could in Cambridge. We also have a decent-sized yard for the area and - Taras's favorite - a two car garage. As house buying goes, it's not perfect. There are a lot of projects on the to-do list and some "would be nice" items that we've decided to live without (more curb appeal, for one). But, all-in-all, we couldn't be happier.
First night + first family selfie in our new home. It took Caleb a little time to adjust to the new house but I think he's finally comfortable here - hooray! Now, to get our sleep schedules back in order...
The original plan was to move in slowly, since we still have our rental house. But after a quick move of a few ready-to-go boxes, the guys in our family decided to just go for it and moved almost all our furniture in one afternoon. The move was unplanned, and the aftermath of the impromptu move left this organizer and planner a little overwhelmed at times - we have our things in two places and most everything was out of order. But being able to live in our new home so soon, and being able to celebrate Caleb's first Christmas in our new home, was totally worth all the chaos! We're so happy to be HOME.
The best helper
And a HUGE thank you to our families for all their heavy-lifting, baby-watching, packing, and unpacking.
