the movers are coming!

Although it is beginning to look that they already have...We've spent the last two evenings emptying out our stuff from our kind hosts' 12 foot house. It has been exciting, but sad in someways. I've really enjoyed spending time with our good friends (okay they are *super* good friends - could not have done this renovation without them!).
We are also excited to be moving into our new house. I wish it was *more* done than it is now, but this week has had huge progress. Hopefully our toilet, refrigerator and sink (in that order) will be in working order by the end of day tomorrow. Thankfully the shower works - and Hudson can take a bath. Talking about Hudson - with our other good friends help (Maddy - thanks for watching Hudson this afternoon - and Dan & Chelsea - thanks helping us move all our stuff into the new apartment!) we got almost all of our stuff from our current residence into our new home. After we moved in the beds, clothing and other stuff that didn't go into storage we got down to the important stuff - setting up the baby room. We've done our best to try to limit the chaos in his life - and he has been amazingly resilient. So this is the progress so far:

We had to take the door of the hinges to get the rocking chair in - It isn't the biggest room, but it will do! We hung the blackout lined wood shade and the drape for his closet. Only thing that is missing is the area rug that comes out of storage tomorrow
We installed an Ikea handle on the side of the sink cabinet that we will use as a hand towel rack...
 And the walls got painted! Love the pretty light shade of blue!
And they started painting the living and dining area. The more of the pink walls and yellow trim that gets covered, the more exciting and real it seems...

 They finished grouting the backsplash and they added trim around the new hood.
 The kitchen is coming together! Ikea gave us the wrong door so we had to exchange it today; hence the one missing panel above the fridge. The size of the space feels really good!
The movers are coming tomorrow at 9am with the rest of our stuff! Not sure where they will put it, but I guess we'll figure it out as we go.
