Living at our new place.

We have been living in our new house for about a week now, and we're getting used to it fast! We love the openness of the living room, its so much bigger than our rental house. I think everyone's favorite thing about the house so far is this giant window that lets in lots of light. Both Audrey and Kitsya love sitting on the windowsill and looking outside. 

Another great thing? We live a block away from a park with a lake. So far we've been there once, and Audrey had so much fun watching the ducks swimming around. (I think ducks are her favorite right now...)

Of course there are some bad sides to moving. All the boxes! The first couple days we were so good about unpacking, but I think now its been a couple days since we've opened a box. But Im looking forward to when we are all settled so I can work on decorating more. I have such dreams for this house! 

(Please excuse my not so clean hair in the picture above. But I am a mom who just moved... showers are not my friend right now.) :)

"A portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2013."

Audrey: She has become quite fond of brushing her teeth and chews on the brush for an hour. (I think it helps with her teething..)

On an unrelated note, tomorrow is moving day! Me and Viktor will be staying up tonight and packing like mad. Hope it all goes smoothly. :)

This week in pictures.

1. A duckie block.
2. Reading in a box.
3. Packing and empty shelves.
4. Angrily trying to take a sticker off her hand.
5. Can you see me in the clock?
6. Painting away!
7. Audrey prefers to stack this way. 

We are on track for moving into our new house this weekend! I have been packing boxes like a maniac, and my back is hurting to prove it. But I've kind of been enjoying it. I'm looking forward to organizing everything after we unpack. We have a lot of storage in the new place, so its great that nothing will be cluttered. (hopefully...) 
Thats about all that has been happening around here... Oh also I think Audrey is teething majorly right now. Her molars are coming in and she has been very unhappy the past couple days. We're trying to give her lots of snuggles and doses of Curious George. ;)

We are cleaning and painting.

My sisters came over last weekend to help with the new house. We are planning on painting a lot of the house white, because i just love how clean and bright it looks. (you can see my pinterest inspirations here.) Also our home is surrounded by lots of tall trees and is a bit dark inside, so we think the white walls will help with that.

I was a bit naive about how much time painting takes... For some reason i was thinking that we would be able to paint everything in just one day, but we were only able to finish one bedroom! It will probably take a couple days to get everything done, and I am so glad that Viktor is very patient and loving with me, because this was mostly my idea...

We are hoping to move in by this weekend, although there is still so much packing to do, that Im not sure were gonna make it. 

Oh, and my favorite thing about our house are the floors. They are so pretty to look at! :)
