First of all... NO, I'm NOT pregnant (phew)! But, life has been a bit hectic around these parts the past few months. We've been traveling back and forth from Columbus (Ohio) and staying with both of our parents while we are there. There are a few reasons why we've been going so much. First, because Bill has been interviewing for a new position in Columbus (which he got! yay!) AND we've been house hunting! So, we've decided to make the move back to Columbus!!
We started talking about moving back a few months after Bennett was born. It was definitely challenging being away from family (and friends) after Bennett arrived. We quickly realized how important it is to have family help with 2 little ones and we also knew it would be best for our family to have the boys grow up being close to their grandparents and cousins that live in Ohio.
SO, we made the decision to list our house in IL for sale over Christmas break and we got an offer that week! Luckily we settled on a longer close (we close end of Feb) so we could have time to look for a new house in Columbus.
This week we are packing up pretty much our whole house except the necessities because we are heading to stay with my parents in Columbus until we move into our new home! The time frame will probably be 3-4 weeks staying with them. We are finalizing the contract with a new home in Columbus (fingers crossed financing and inspection go smoothly!).
SO, I want to apologize ahead of time if I'm a little absent on the blog and social media for the next few weeks as we settle into our new life in Columbus. I do have a really fun post scheduled for tomorrow about an awesome stroller for siblings!
Besides all that craziness, we really enjoyed being with the grandparents over the weekend. AND we loved the taste of spring weather! Camden loved being outside!
Please say a little prayer for us that this transition is a smooth one. I know it will be the hardest on Camden. He is at the age where he realizes there is a big change happening. I'm trying my best to keep his little world consistent by keeping his daily routine intact. We will be setting up both of their cribs at my parents house so that they can sleep in their own beds during the transition period. I think that will help tremendously.
If any of you have experienced moving with little ones, please let me know if you have any advise!
