This time has been very exciting for us as a lot of this move has been with him in mind. We've gone from a condo that had no neighborhood or parks to speak of, to a house on a quiet cul-de-sac. Our neighbors have kids. We can walk to a great park with baseball fields, beach volleyball courts, a giant playground, green space, and a beach! There's also a fantastic commercial area with loads of restaurants, coffee shops, and local stores. Given the presence of two frozen yogurt shops, I foresee lots of "walks" in our future.

Part of the slowdown is due to our general sanity, but the other part is due to selling off our old condo. It's about to go on the market later this week, and we certainly have our fingers crossed that we'll be able to sell it for a decent price. Once we're free from that major financial anchor, it will give us a lot more freedom to invest in the house as well as look to the future.

As we have a brand new house with a bedroom just waiting for Dominic's future brother or sister, I know that I'm really looking forward to the days, weeks, months, and years to come in our new home! I know that Dominic is already enjoying the new digs as he's had plenty of parties with his wild stuffed animal friends :)
