Deets for the baby:
- Estimated due date: October 7
- Boy or girl: We're not going to find out 'til delivery. SIKE! We'll find out next Wednesday, because I loathe secrets.
- What do we want: A healthy baby. (Duh) But we're both kind of leaning girl, probably just because Madison is so great! (And in my personal opinion boys can be quite gross.)
Fortunately, my weight gain is on track so far. With Madison, I gained 60 lbs (and only lost 55, dad gum it). It wasn't pretty. Hopefully, this time I'll gain no more than 30 and will still lose 55. A girl can dream!
But enough about me and my rapidly expanding waistline. Let's talk about me and my (hopefully) rapidly disappearing old house!
The big we-can't-live-in-a-one-bathroom-1100sq.ft.-house-with-two-babies blowup of 2013 happened the day before I started my second trimester. It was just as much of a shock to Patrick as it was to me, but it resulted in us composing a list of things to finish in the house that, each taking up one line of college ruled notebook paper, filled a page and a half. And most of the line items weren't little. One example? "Repair, sand, and refinish countertops in kitchen."
$500, a month and a half, and seven years off of our lives later, the house is ready to sell. It's going on the market this afternoon. In honor of the occasion, I thought I'd share some before and after pictures, taken from listing photos on the buying and selling end.
