It seems like I just don't have time these days to get the things I need to accomplish done. Like blogging. Or even housework some days. We have been non-stop go-go-go the past...I don't even know how long. I am exhausted. Hubby is exhausted. We are definitely in need of some down time. A get away. Something. I just don't see that happening any time in the next...well...year.

Our offer was accepted on the house we bid on. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that the enormous amount of paperwork that goes into buying a house would be so intense. I think we see our realtor more than we see anyone else. The munchkin knows who we are visiting as we get near his office.

We have completed our inspections on the house and everything turned out awesome! There are a few MINOR repairs that really aren't that major at all. We are talking about a jammed dishwasher. A few cracked tiles on the roof. A few cracks outside the window. Honestly, all minor things that we can fix our self.

Our next big hurdle will be the appraisal. It is appraising under what we bid which may cause some issues. We are hoping and praying that it all turns out and that the bank doesn't ask for more from us than we can give. If that happens, we will have no choice but to walk. Sigh. So...toes, fingers, eyes, legs, whatever are crossed.

Speaking of keeping your legs crossed...all is good with the new baby. Or as far as we know. We SHOULD find out the sex on the 22nd. My OB said she'd try and look for it. If not, then the 31st is the "Big" ultrasound. We are still hoping it's a boy.

I am definitely carrying this one different. I am not carrying it out front - but everywhere else. I have gained 5 pounds but it literally looks like I have gained 30. HATE IT. But what can you do. I am 16.5 weeks.

So that is the latest update. I am running late and out of time (go figure!) so this must end here.

Wishing you all a great day!

keep those legs crossed, woman :p

I have this saying "Time flies whether you're having fun or not..."

Sad but true. GL on the House!!

I have everything crossed for you, regarding the house and finding out the sex.

I carried both my daughters different too, but that doesn't mean anything. I have come to understand that every pregnancy is completely different.

Glad to see all is going well for you and baby! Glad to see things are also coming along with the home!

Only 5 pounds! Lucky duck! I'm only 7 weeks and have gained about 7 pounds already! :(

I hope you get a boy, too! They are such pains, but so much fun. :)

Good luck with the ultrasound.
