Long Overdue Update

Sorry for the extended absence.  In fact, I've been reading your blogs between feedings, changing and walking Elizabeth, but I haven't had much time to put my thoughts together and write.  Speaking of Elizabeth, she is a little colicky, but we seemed to have turned a corner.  Luke is also well but a bit a lot more needy than he was before her arrival.

While all of this has been going on we packed and moved out of our house, put our stuff in storage and moved into a temporary rental (more on that in a minute).  We also closed on our house.  So, we're officially homeless.  Leaving our house was  harder than I anticipated - our first home together and Luke's first home made it really hard to say good-bye.

Ok. So, now for our new, temporary home.  We're staying in a 1400 square foot home on the CT shore.  It's bright and sunny home and we're really happy here.  And we're literally across the street from the Long Island Sound, with water views from our windows.  If this was summer, we could never afford this!

It's a cute cedar clapboard house with a nice stone patio which we've used for lunches.  The kitchen isn't huge, but it's open clean and bright.

And, it's open to the living room, below.

There are two first floor bedrooms (ours and Elizabeth's) and Luke gets the entire upstairs to himself!  It's his own secret hideout and he loves it.

Other than the occasional jaunts to the beach and napping whenever I can, that 's what has been going on here.

I'm hoping as we settle into more of a routine that I can get back to posting more frequently.
