Lots of firsts this weekend!
Lewis’ first Christmas was a success. He is a very enthusiastic gift receiver, cheering and yelling about each and every thing he got. It was rewarding for all gifters, I think. And magical for me and Kyle to experience Christmas in this new way.
Our first house guest slept comfortably in the guest room. I’ve never loved house guests, but in this house I didn’t mind so much. It just feels natural that it is filled up. Plus my dad was a great first guest. He pitched in around the house with things big and small. Like painting the stairwell, dishes, breaking down boxes, and watching Lewis while Kyle and I did other things. What a nice bonus!
As previously noted, our first party at the new house was also lovely. Everyone seemed comfortable in our home, and everyone left with full bellies and smiles on their faces. It was a very satisfying experience.
Lewis continues to sleep poorly, and Kyle and I continue to pull the house together despite the exhaustion. We’re happy at the end of the day. Very happy.
