Gearing up for the Move

The move is only two weeks away, so James and I are trying to get as organized as possible.� While we're not moving far (about a mile away), September 1 is the busiest move-in day of the year around here because of the college crowd, so we're trying to mentally prepare for a couple days of craziness.

In anticipation of having a moving truck on moving day, James and I went couch shopping this past weekend, and whaddya know? We found one! It's mossy green, very comfy, it fit our budget, and it definitely beats the crummy futon we've been hurting our backs and butts on over the past year.� We bought it at Jordan's.

I also finally had a chance to refurbish the coffee table I bought for $5 a couple of months ago at the Goodwill store.� A few screws to fix the wobble, some sandpaper, a few fresh coats of black paint and some elbow grease later - BAM - a beautiful "new" coffee table!� It's a bit large for the living room we have now, but it'll be just right in our new place.

James and I are looking forward to moving to a bigger space soon, and Emmett should be, too.� It's fully carpeted for the little guy to crawl around to his heart's desire, and there's a lot more room for him to get into trouble.

On another note, he's really been enjoying his solids lately, and he's truly starting to get the hang of it.� Here's a lovely pic of the aftermath of a meal of sweet potatoes:

Emmett in the Nursery

What a little weekend of milestones!� Emmett turned one month old yesterday (can you believe it?) and spent his first night in his very own bedroom (which I think was a lot tougher on mommy than it was on baby).

James and I pretty much spent the whole weekend planning and rearranging the furniture in our apartment with the goal of finally setting up the nursery (for the most part).� To make the transition from our bedroom to the nursery a little easier (again, probably just for me), we've left the crib in our room for the time being and set up the Pack 'N Play in the nursery.� I figured this would make things a lot simpler if I decided I didn't like how things were going after the first couple of nights and wanted Em back in our room again.

I'm happy to report that the night went pretty well (normal behavioral hiccups aside).� It may have taken me a little longer than usual to get to sleep due to worries about possible baby monitor malfunctions or kitty mishaps (thankfully, Oliver kept his distance), but in the end, it seemed to work out pretty well.� I like to think Emmett enjoyed his independence, too.

Maybe I'll still give it a couple more nights before we move the crib into the nursery for good.� You know, just to be sure ...
