29 Weeks + A New Home.

Why are Josh and I so weird? You know how we just moved back to Springfield? Got an apartment, settled in? Well, we're moving! We're not leaving Springfield, just moving into an actual house. We looked at three. The first two were these really cute / neat old houses that I totally fell in love with. (We're talking 1930s Sears Roebuck homes.) Josh wasn't as into them, though. Reason being that he didn't feel that as renters, the things that come with an old house would be worth it. I was pretty much, um, bummed.

Then, on Saturday, we went to look at another house. As soon as we walked in, I had a feeling that as long as everything worked out with the owner, we would be getting this one. (Josh told me that he'd thought the same.) Luckily, everything worked out! And so easily. We're even able to paint, which makes me so happy, because it's like we get to make it a little more our own. Love.

Our apartment is giving us a bit of a hassle (despite their 30 day trial period, which we're still in) which is pretty annoying. We're actually going to have to pay rent for the house and apartment for the month of September...So, yeah, that kind of...blows. But, in the end, it's much better that we get this house!
We should be moving in next week. Can't wait.

So, 29 weeks. Almost 30. I cannot believe how fast it's going by! I know I say that every week, but it's totally true. 

For the most part, I've had a pretty good handle on the gestational diabetes. It's been a little tough at times, but it's getting easier. 

I think Tatum is starting to live in limited space. I'm no longer feeling many kicks + punches. For the most part, I'm really only feeling lots of actual moving these days. Like, rolls and flops, that are SUPER strong. Sometimes they're actually kind of overwhelming. But I love it. (She did one today that kind of hurt, though!) 

Today Josh and I went out to lunch, and I said that it was weird that we wouldn't have too many more of these "just us" dates before we had a little third wheel hanging around. Ol' ball + chain. 
I think I'm okay with that. : )
