or, at least as official as i feel like these things can ever be until the boxes start to cross the threshold. we are moving, into a new place that feels absolutely perfect for us in basically every way imaginable.
all three of us are really excited, although i think that natasha will need lots of encouragement as she adjusts to the idea of going to a new school. (i have a hunch that she will do fabulously when it comes down to the actual act of going to her new school, but the idea of it all is not one that she is terribly thrilled about at this time.)
we are leaving behind a place that's given us a lot of challenges, and where we never really felt at home. leaving feels good enough in and of itself. moving into a place that we completely love is making me feel like the luckiest girl on earth! if the barrage of teeny tiny kicks and punches i've gotten today are any indication, the belly baby is pretty damn excited too.
(natasha believes she felt a kick from the outside today. i am not sure that this is physiologically possibly at 18 weeks, but she was really, really happy about it, which was incredible and awesome. seeing her warm up to this whole baby thing has been so cool. and unbelievable!)
i plied some yarn tonight, and was going to try to spin another single, but after spending the day packing and organizing and goodwilling (donating, not so much with the shopping) i am pretty sleepy. good night friends. thanks so much those of you who kept your fingers crossed for us. xoxo
