House Update, Wild Banshees, & First Steps

Our house has only been up for sale for about 7 days and we've had someone come and look at it every single day. Sometimes there are 2 people. I think we're up to about 10 showings. We did already get one offer on it - but we are waiting to see what/if anything else comes in. We've been blessed in how many people have been interested in it.

I'll tell you, though - it is RIDICULOUSLY hard to keep a house clean with three children three and under. Whew! Thank goodness they go to daycare three days a week - because those are the easiest days to keep it clean. Anytime I find out it's someone with a family coming to look at the house, I just think they're going to snatch it up immediately. I really do think our house is the PERFECT house for a family (with one or two kids).

One of the hardest things about having it up for sale is when we have a showing - because we take the baby gates down. Mr. Howard got sick of chasing kids, so he tried to put the barstools in the walkway. Yep. It didn't work. That's Aiden he was putting back on the other side. Isabella and Connor were about to make a run for it.

 It's hard to see, but then Mr. Howard got the idea to try pillows to block them. Connor figured it out pretty quickly.
I have refallen in love with my house, now that we have to keep it sparkling clean every day. We borrowed these barstools from my mom and dad for the house photoshoot and now I'm so bummed we haven't had some all along. Connor eats his breakfast on them and I blog a lot with my coffee in the mornings at the bar. We are definitely going to need barstools at our next house!
In addition to trying to keep the house sparkling clean, the kids have been wild. The time change has been just awful over here. Eeek. It's been so hard. Please tell me I'm not the only one. Our littlest littles have been wild banshees.
 But, Miss Thang took a couple breaks from being the wild banshee that she is and finally decided that she would try taking her first steps. She's done it a couple times now, but she is just petrified to try on her own. The therapist isn't worried at all, because she is perfectly capable and walks all the time holding onto stuff, but I wish she'd just get brave and go for it.

Hi there! Hopped over from somewhere and just read your story on Cole. I'm absolutely in tears and heartbroken. I do want to say that you have a beautiful family and all of your children are simply adorable. Good luck on selling your house and have a wonderful Thanksgiving week!

Those pictures are hilarious! I don't know how I would keep a house clean with a baby...let alone TWO babies.

I didn't realize that you were moving! Hope your house sells quickly :-)
