Six months has passed since our lost entry, and there is a very good reason for that. His name is Evan, and he was born November 15th 2011, the same day we closed on the house.
I think it's pretty monumental to close on a house and have a baby in the same day. It's sorta equivalent to lifting weights and fighting off ninjas.
Evan's early arrival was sort of good timing, because I was able to pitch in and help renovate more than I would have been able to if I were pregnant. We jumped right in and worked our butts off and conjured up weekend help from Aunt Lynda! Between two kids, Aaron and I working full time, and two houses to manage...it took a bit longer than we expected. When Aaron wasn't flying he was at the rental house working. And when I wasn't working, I was at the rental house too helping, or watching the kids.
Below are some pics of the carpet installation:
