3 years, 11 months.
This weekend was very special. Your Nonna and Papa (my parents) drove up to see our new house we are building in Spring Hill, Tennessee.
On the way to the site, you made sure you had some Annie’s snacks, as well as GoGo Squeez, both of which are contributing to your “No Artificial Anything” 4th birthday party this weekend. (Mommy and I let you sample some from the stashes that were mailed to us.)
We also were moving most of our stuff into storage this weekend as well, but more on that in the next letter…
As for the new surprises in our house this week, we saw that our cabinets have been installed; both in the kitchen and bathrooms. It’s a pretty big deal to see them. Mommy and I are very pleased with our choice; black with these cool “scoopy” handles.
It was a decision we made very quickly, along with the carpet, outside color of our house, which type of hardwood floor, etc. So it’s good to know we made a good rash decision a couple months ago.
I stood in front of where the sink and dishwasher will go to get a feel for what it will be like to do the dishes in our new kitchen.
Mommy and I were also pleasantly surprised with the banister on our staircase. I feel that it is more elaborate than the one featured in the model home.
Another cool surprise was the storage space in the attic. I actually forgot about that!
We finally figured out what crop is being grown behind our house: soy beans.
Should I thank Monsanto for that? Oh well, it’s a pretty view at least.
Obviously, the construction is really coming along; we’re actually ahead of schedule. Our closing date is January 29th. However, our agent explained that typically the house is typically move-in ready 45 days after the dry wall is installed.
If that’s the case, in theory our house should definitely be finished before January 29th, since the dry wall was already in a week ago.
Of course, I am keeping my expectations low- to be a realistic optimist. We’ll see what happens on that…
We finished the morning with lunch at Whole Foods, where you were able to (very easily) talk Nonna and Papa into buying you a new stuffed animal; a penguin who you instantly named “Pingy.”
To be continued…
