We're Home!

The past few weeks have been a blur. After an insanely fast one day move, we are slowly getting settled into our new home. It's amazing how much stuff we had crammed into that 2.5 bedroom apartment. Right now, we're savoring the space and closets. I still have lots of little things to put away.

I feel horrible about where the rabbits are. I had to put them in the basement until we get a gate that has a swinging door on it for the kitchen. They are miserable down there. They've had two playdates and both have gone well.

Today, I finished the girls' room and the tv room. Tomorrow and Wednesday will be busy days, so I'm planning to finish unpacking the master bedroom Friday. It's the last room that needs to be done. Then I'll have some leftover random things to put away.

Vera's had a low fever on and off for two days. I think it's a combination of her body fighting something and adjusting to a new place. She's also been quick to scream and cry. Lots of tantrums, but once the house is settled, she'll even out. Abby seems to be fine. There was one afternoon where she cried because she was homesick, but that was it. Abby's more laid back. We started lessons again, and it feels good to be doing a familiar routine.

This evening at dinner, Penny was playing with a spoon and crawled over to Vera to stick her spoon in Vera's bowl. Scott made a small bowl of smashed avocado. Penny's first real taste of food! And, she wasn't so into it. The faces she made were a riot. The real joy was squishing avocado between her fingers. The wall to wall carpeting has seriously jump started Penny's crawling. She's a champion crawler now.
