25 Weeks pregnant with Boo #2

I keep meaning to do a side-by-side comparison of pix from this time compared to last it will probably happen when this kid is 2. 

  • I've already explained the epic fail that was this week- all of which just lead to more exhaustion than I was already experiencing. Needless to say I feel like a zombie, but the second I lay down in bed at night, I can't sleep. It's a great combination.
  • Heartburn has been rearing it's fiery head on a daily basis now. It's worst around dinner time and when I'm trying to fall asleep, Tums are my new after-dinner snack.
  • Speaking of snacks, I want snacks all the time, but I don't really want meals... little bits of food throughout the day just make me feel better, but is sometimes hard to manage. 
  • 99.9% positive we have a name for this little bugger. While I've been calling him Teddy since I was about 6 weeks pregnant, he now has an official name... first AND middle... but we're not spilling yet :) Mostly because we got too many comments and suggestions about Fynn's name when we made that public.
  • This week little Boo is the size of a cauliflower this week, measuring at 13.6-14.8 inches long and 1.5-2.5 pounds of baby goodness.

The House Deal

I've mentioned here and there things about moving and selling our house, but I never really wrote about how this has all gone down.

Well, here it is:

Since, well, as long as I've known Drew (so 13+ years) he's been all about finding deals. I lovingly refer to him as Peddler Drew since he's the only person I know who can buy trucks, drive them for 2-3 years, and then sell them for more than he paid for them... yeah, I haven't figured that one out either.

Our house was a prime example of Peddler Drew at work. We bought our first house at auction 5 years ago for a lot less than it was worth. Since then, Drew's been keeping his eye on real estate in the area, especially more auction deals.

Which brings us to this July. In July he found this house. We went to see it, and I fell in love. The rest of the summer was spent in putting in offers, getting turned down, and eventually deciding it just wasn't going to happen.

Then, the first week of school, Drew texted me in the middle of the day to tell me the bank had accepted her offer. I actually laughed because I didn't think it was really true. Then there were more issues because it was a bank-owned property which comes with its own set of headaches, but Drew prevailed again and we finally closed on the new house two weeks ago.

With everything going on, we didn't put our house on the market yet. So the day after we closed, we put our house up. Six days later it had sold (at asking price) which was music to my ears. Have you ever tried to keep a house show-clean... with a two year old? No joke, we would finish cleaning the entire house, turn around, and there'd be a trail of food/milk/randomness all over the floor. Being told we didn't have to do that anymore was amazing... not to mention the whole sold deal.

Right now we're under contract, with the close in the beginning of December. Our plan is to move during Thanksgiving week since our family will all be here and those lucky guys have all been volunteered to help us move. If all goes according to plan, we should be good and settled before Boo # 2 makes his grand appearance!
