Signed- We literally signed our name about sixty times to seal the deal. And I was wishing I had a signature stamp since I had a wiggly toddler in my lap!
Sealed- There is no going back now. As long as we make our payments on time each month, this is where we will be bringing our future babies home in Houston!
Delivered-Our furniture doesn’t arrive until Monday, so we’ve been camping out on the floor of our new casa...
The thing that attracted us to this particular house the most was the apparent pride the owners had in every hook, hinge, hallway, and cranny. It is older than me, but it feels brand new because of it's pristine condition. I truly believe you can tell the moment you walk in a home if there is a positive spirit about a space, and thanks to the great people who lived here before us... the good vibrations are off the charts, Beach Boys worthy:)
I’ve said before that I feel like the wife and I have kindred hearts. She is one of the most creative and kind people I have met and I am hoping now that I'm sleeping under her old roof, her fairy dust will rub off on me:)
Yesterday when we walked in the house for the first time there were notes in several places along with house warming gifts.

I don’t have too many tips for mommy-ing. Honestly I am just flying by the seat of my pants. For now I am just trying to keep James fed, somewhat happy, and healthy. But next time I have to write a tip on an index card at a baby shower, it will say...Do something fun every morning. By first thing I mean before you wash a dish, start a load of laundry, or take a shower. It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant or complicated. For us, it's usually pretty simple like playing in the yard, a bike ride, a trip to a pretty park, and lately the zoo (since it's super close and we have a season pass). I just go some place I can feel the sunshine on my face, get a few endorphins to get me going, take a picture (or twenty), and spend some quality time with James. My favorite mommy quote says, "cobwebs sleep, but babies don't keep."
When I get home I am usually inspired by the outdoors, James has expended a little energy, and I am ready to conquer my day...or a least a little house cleaning;) Now that I've written a post for my posterity's sake:)...Come with us to the Zoobalyzoo...
