We have signed a lease agreement and have an apartment to move into. We decided to move because our little one-room apartment right now is not very baby friendly.
So after looking and looking, we found a place. It’s old, built in the late 1930s, but I like old. There is all this built-in storage. The carpet is green. There is a formal dining room, two bedrooms, a living room, and a kitchen (with limited counter space). It’s in the basement of a duplex.
The rent was cheaper than anything we had seen, and it’s not in a terrible neighborhood either. It’s sort of far away from campus, but there are buses. It’s within walking distance of the library.
And we just feel completely blessed. I did want to stay within our ward, but it’s okay that we’re not too. The apartment felt right for us. We also have a few weeks overlap between moving in and moving out, so that’ll be nice.
I finally feel ready for baby to come, and I still have seven more weeks. She can keep growing for a while more.
