For Lars and I, so-called “minimalists” (okay, more Lars than me)…we have way more boxes stacked up in our dining room than I thought possible! Packing away your life blows. However, its mitigated by the fact that we’re, on Friday, moving to a fantastic little house on the west side of Ann Arbor where we’ll have a basement and oodles of storage so that we can tell people we’re minimalists but then hoard like crazy in the knooks and crannies.
Moving is made a little more difficult by Bjorn’s increased desire to be mobile. We used to be able to just set him down and he would kind of play within the circumfrence that his arms would reach but now he is getting into everything. Especially electrical sockets. I mean, no joke, it was the first thing he went for when he realized he could move forward.
Safest way for Bjorn to keep from going AWOL is to put him in his jumparoo. Sometimes the transition into the device is not always the easiest but he doesn’t seem to mind. Just a new challenge for Special Agent Jensen.
We’ve also had the added bonus of having all of Bjorn’s cousins in town for the past week! Ryder, Mats, Anikka, and Geddy have been chilling Ann Arbor style. Its been a crazy couple of days and we’ll hopefully have more photos to post later–but we’re so happy that they made the trek out here to see their Michigan family.
And, just when you thought we were done with the fun, we have Nonni coming out tomorrow for a whole week of fun with Bjorn. An extra set of adult hands to keep Bjorn out of trouble and harm’s way should be awesome. We also think she is going to LOVE our new kitchen (and hopefully make us many good things to eat).
We have a couple more photos to share here. No updates on the Bjorn site–Daddy has been busy buying a house, renting a condo, and keeping madness and mayhem at bay.
