Once again I feel like time is passing me by. Josh and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary yesterday and in just a few days he’ll be heading out to Colorado to look at houses. I know it’s going to be strange with him gone for that many days considering we haven’t been apart that long in several years – just a night here and there. So, it’ll be little man and I holding down the fort and attempting to keep the house tidy in case someone calls to see the house.
We’ve officially listed our house – we’re doing everything ourselves in the hopes we’ll save some money, so let’s just hope we can still sell quickly enough. There are a few more steps I want to take – like contacting several realtors in the area to let them know we’ll pay commission if they bring us a buyer. In the meantime, we’re getting a storage unit to clear up some clutter and make the place a little more showeable.
Not much else is new in our exciting lives. We stayed in on the 4th as the temps were too high for our taste, plus I had a cold, so I just wanted to nap, but we did get some picnic food and had a picnic in the living room while watching Dumbo with Enzo… I had forgotten just how weird Pink Elephants On Parade was…
We did see fireworks, however, the following weekend from inside – not sure which towns they were, but it was kind of cool to look out one window and see fireworks and then to look out another window and see completely different fireworks. Perhaps we’ll take Enzo to see his first fireworks next year when it doesn’t interfere with his napping and it isn’t so warm out.
In the meantime, poor little boy has caught my cold (or has nasty allergies already), so the nights especially have not been easy. His nose gets stuffy and he hates the nose aspirator, and he roughly rubs at his face/nose with his hands while he sleeps – most likely because it’s harder to breathe. I tried elevating his cosleeper mattress a tad, but that doesn’t seem to have done much good, and I can’t tell if the humidifier is helping or not or the baby vapo rub. The past two nights he has spent a portion of on the my chest with me sitting up just so everything can drain more easily. He doesn’t wake up quite as upset, but I definitely don’t sleep as well. Let’s hope this cold doesn’t get worse and that he kicks it before the weekend.
