Apartment Life

We have been in our apartment for three weeks now & are officially settled in.   It was an easier transition than we anticipated, except for Lucy B.  She’s is quickly making it known that the city life is not for her.  She much prefers the quiet life of suburbia where she can lay in the […]

We have been in our apartment for three weeks now & are officially settled in.   It was an easier transition than we anticipated, except for Lucy B.  She’s is quickly making it known that the city life is not for her.  She much prefers the quiet life of suburbia where she can lay in the backyard at her will.

 

The apartment has many plus’, like a second bathroom.  Who knew that would be such a luxury?  We also opted for the “updated” unit that includes a washer & dryer.  With the “updated” unit we have hardwood floors (fake) and granite counter tops.  The finishes are, honestly, nicer than our house.  Right outside are door is a park, which we have used every weekend so far.

 

I feel like Matt & I have come full circle to a point…or maybe we’re back in the middle of a figure eight (which means we might be in this place again…right?).  When we first started dating, we spent a lot of time eating take out pizza on the floor of his very bare apartment watching the summer 2008 Olympics.   Currently, we have been eating a lot of take out, at the table of our barely furnished apartment watching the winter Olympics….with a 2 year old running amok screaming “ICE HOCKEY!” and a dog pacing the apartment because she’s out of sorts.

 

Life is good.

Haircut

February 21st, 2014

It’s been almost two months and time again, but Link finally got a haircut.  I thought the day would never come.  Matt has been dying to take him and doing a “hair grow” dance daily.   I thought I was going to miss all his baby curls, and I kind of do, however he’s so […]

It’s been almost two months and time again, but Link finally got a haircut.  I thought the day would never come.  Matt has been dying to take him and doing a “hair grow” dance daily.

 

I thought I was going to miss all his baby curls, and I kind of do, however he’s so handsome, I don’t care.

Matt said it was a horrific experience and he tipped the lady very well for her patience & skill (because it apparently wasn’t easy).  He said “she didn’t do a terrible job considering”…I packed lots of suckers for him, they usually keep him calm and allow us to do thing like, trim his nails.  Apparently the cape was an adult size and covered up his hands, which he couldn’t get out, so he panicked & never recovered.  They opted to cut his hair without the cape and got hair all over (including his sucker).  Glad I missed it 🙂

Money, Money, Moonneeey

I have never been so happy to see a penny in my life.  Even if it was in Link’s diaper.   Sunday AM Matt & I were packing up the last of the house when Link found a penny in the living room. Matt: Hey Linky, can I have the penny? Link: NO! Me: Then […]

Sunday AM Matt & I were packing up the last of the house when Link found a penny in the living room.

Matt: Hey Linky, can I have the penny?
Link: NO!

Me: Then can you come in your room please so I can get you dressed?

*walks the 10 steps into the room & lays on the floor*

Me: Hey bud, can you show me your penny?
Link: No!

Me: Where is your penny?

Link: Mouth mama (opens mouth wide).

Daycare has been saving his dirty diapers for me to look through.  I was ecstatic to see it today.  What is my life coming too?
