These Walls Are Made of Blue

October 27, 2008

This is officially Day 3 in our new house. We almost have a working kitchen and were able to move the last of our belongings out of my parents’ house this weekend. We spent the ENTIRE day Saturday hanging out and getting the boys acclimated. All was fine, but I was very nervous about bedtime. Gav loves staying at Grandma’s so I was worried that come bedtime, he’d be putting on his shoes ready to head back to her house. I prepped him all evening for sleeping at the new house and when bedtime rolled around, he was grinning like the Cheshire Cat! I have never seen him so giddy to go to bed. I think the biggest thing for him was that Liam was going to be sleeping in there with him. (If you’ve read earlier posts, in the past we’ve had major sleep issues with Gav so we were hoping that by having the boys share a room, this would solve some of that). Gav got out of bed his usual number of times (to test us) but then happily stayed in bed and talked to Liam. There were both being silly and laughing. What a wonderful sound! Last night was even better. He did not attempt to get out of bed at all, but laid happily in bed until he fell asleep. Maybe we’ve found the answer. Thanks, Liam!

Gav has been extremely happy to be here and the transition for him went smoother than I imagined. His new thing these past few days has been giving tours. He’ll stand in the hallway and describe the house (all to himself, of course. If he catches me listening, he clams up). Here’s what we usually hear from the hallway. “This is the hallway”. “Behind these walls……” “This will be the kitchen”. “This will be the laundry room”. (Both of those rooms have yet to be completed, so he’s right on!). And the best one yet, “these walls are made of blue.” Think I’ve been talking about paint colors much? πŸ™‚ So if you’re ever in the neighborhood, stop by! Tours daily!
