6 month update. Wow life is flying by. 6 months really does go fast! One minute your googling 'possible labor signs' the next your wiping up baby food off the walls.
Ashby is now a 6 month baby. That happened. She's growing and thriving. She's still nursing exclusively and has just started solid foods. We're doing baby led weaning so she gets to enjoy her independence by not having us spoon feed her. She loves feeding herself with the spoon anyway. You could not get that thing into her mouth yourself if you tried. I'll pre-load the spoon with something soft and then I hand it to her. Mostly she makes it to her mouth anyway. Lots of mess but it's worth it. I'm going to try to feed her lots of organic food; of course. Homemade mostly but not be to fussy about anything, which is basically how I try to live my life anyway. Not too fussed about anything. No. Drama.

We are still living in our current rental house. Our new house is being built. It's almost done - I think. I am so excited to move. Well not so much for the actual moving part, but to have our house finally. We've gone and checked on the building process a few times in the last month or so and it's looking so good! I can't wait for all the finishing stuff like trim, paint and blinds. Closing and moving should be in a little over a month. Buying your first home is obviously nervous but we are ready.
Once we move I am very excited about organizing and decorating. We'll be waiting a little bit of time to buy new furniture but someday soon we'll put new couches, rugs, beds, chairs etc in this place! Here are some update photos of the new house.
Look at this pretty kitchen! I'm so super glad with our choices we made. I love the cabinets, the colors, the lights and counter tops. The floors underneath that paper look good too. The big appliances are sitting in the dining room in the bottom of the photo.
