I was about 3 months pregnant with Jax when we first moved in. We were both busy working and getting ready to be parents. The nursery was right next to our room, and I spent so much time in that room, just imagining the sweet boy who would soon occupy the space.
For the first year and a half, this house was perfect for us! My mom had helped me decorate the space, paint walls, and make it into our home. But once our little Mr. Moo Moo because mobile, things began to change. Our rooms were on the top floor, the kitchen on the second, and the laundry room on the base floor. Luckily Jackson mastered the stairs pretty seamlessly, but thats not to say I didn't have a few heart attacks! The older Jackson got, the more time he wanted to spend outside. With this being a patio home, we didn't have a yard. There also weren't really any kids his age in the neighborhood to play with. So after living in this amazing first home for just over 2 years, we decided to make some changes.
We knew we wanted to change spaces, but we didn't want to change our location. We have a fantastic ward, with friends who we didn't want to leave! So we decided to build a home about 5 minutes away from our current home. We put the house up for sale just after signing to start our new home, and had 2 offers the first night! We decided to accept one offer, only to have them fall through 2 weeks later. I wasn't very happy about putting our house back on the market. Showing your home with a toddler is hectic to say the least. Luckily, we sold the house again a couple days later. This time, everything went well and we closed on Aug. 12th. I didn't realize just how sad I would be leaving our home. We had such incredible memories in this house, and will always look back at these times with a smile. So Lego House, Doctor Seuss House, tall and skinnies, whatever you want to call it, thank you for an amazing 2 years!
