House Hunting

This last month has been so emotionally exhausting.
Living the life of nomads is not easy- I miss being surrounded by our "things". I miss having macs sweet room set up and all of his toys and clothes accessible. I know its all just "stuff" and it shouldn't matter- but it does...

We have been house hunting and have already had our hearts broken once- we had an accepted off on a sweet little gem of a home - one that we thought would be perfect to grow with our little family. However, the inspection did not go well at all- so many issues bug and small that the owner had tried to cover up. Things that as new home owners we never would have guessed could be wrong - and things that even our realtor had not anticipated. DISAPPOINTING!

So we have been out looking again for the last couple weeks- tonight we went to see 2 houses and we both feel that we may have found "the one".

Tomorrow morning we put an offer on this beauty. I am PRAYING HARD that everything goes well and the inspection has nothing surprising in store for us.  I don't think i can handle another heartbreak- not to mention that all these inspection costs add up quickly and take away from the down payments funds that we have available!

Hopefully in a weeks time I will have some fantastic news to share!

Sweet Moments

I so love these shots.

we left Toronto for our journey to New Brunswick.
Something about it feels so simple and vulnerable.


Growing So Fast!!

Our amazing little man turned 5 months old on the 19th!
I still find it incredible to believe that so much time has flown by- so sad when I stop and realize that I only have 7 months left to completely devote to him .

This last month has been wonderful. Macalasdair is interacting so much with us. He has started reaching for me when i am close by- which is something I didn't expect to happen for a  few more months! He has had a few milestones this past month that I will touch on in a later post with pictures!

Where'd I go??

We are currently living the life of nomads- bouncing from house to house while we look for the perfect home for our little family. This has left me little time to upload pictures and keep thing up to date on here.

Things seem to be getting more routine now though so  expect a full disclosure on this last months activities soon!!

PS. Little Beanie turns five months in 2 days and this last month has been full of first for him!!!
