Soo, I know I keep saying that the house is almost done, and we honestly believe that we are so close. BUT, we are still without carpet! Our carpet was originally supposed to be installed last Monday. They have since cancelled on us Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and again yesterday!! Can you believe it?! We were ready to just say no deal, but they keep knocking $300 off the price, so we can hardly walk away now. Ed told the guy it was going to be free by the time things were said and done. It is supposedly coming tomorrow morning. We'll see if that happens or not.
In the meantime, our plumbing job wasn't so "plumb" and now we have water leaking out of our new dishwasher. We don't know whether it is a problem with the way things were hooked up or if we just have bad pipes. Oh, the joys of homeownership.
Last weekend the drywall guy brought his two kids to the house with him. Ed took pity on them and brought them over to our old house to play with Samuel. They went to the park, ate a snack and lunch, and played toys with Sam. I think we ended up watching them for about 4 hours. Here they are in the living room:
I am also having a terrible time with Joel and his sleep habits. Now, I fully admit that is is 99% my fault. He pretty much has to be held to sleep.
And he is sleeping with us at night. Our crib is still not put together (waiting on the carpet guys) and so Samuel is sleeping in the pack n' play. This leaves Joel with no bed to sleep in. I'm at a loss as to what to do about things. Our doc said to wait until 4 months to go with Cry It Out. Any great suggestions? Please give me practical, step-by-step advice if you have any. I've gone back and read all of the most popular books on the subject, but don't feel like I walk away with concrete steps. Let me know...
