Sometime between NOW and the end of May, New Baby No Sachs is set to make it’s big appearance. Once it does, it will have much a much roomier space in which to roll around. Last weekend we moved the changing table, this past weekend we installed the shelf. If I’m feeling inspired (or like … More New Baby’s New Digs
Yesterday, our neighbor up the street, Lisa, stopped by with a surprise for us, a Joovy Caboose stroller. Her five year old decided he was done with strollers, and she thought we might be able to use it. She was super-apologetic because it had been in their garage so it had a little dust on it. … More We have Awesome Neighbors

He’s tested the baby monitor (it still works), … More “Nesting” in the Springtime

The discount special ceiling fan ($24 at the average hardware store – actually that one is a bit nicer than what we’ve got!) which was unsafe (and seriously unbalanced) at any speed got taken down lest anyone be even slightly tempted to use it for anything … More Mister Sun, Sun, Mister Golden Sun!

The fan will go, the lamp is likely to be swapped out with a different one from somewhere else in the house, and the bookcases will move into our bedroom. The little desk is free to … More goodbye guest room
