Yup! Here we go again! I have no idea how pregnant I am but that happened… again:
Best I can tell is that I am between 4 and 12 weeks, that’s quite the large swath… which is downright amazing to me, I know exactly when I got pregnant with Hazel because I was SICK immediately and ALL DAY. I am definitely having different symptoms this go around. Including those wild dreams you hear about, crazy and irrational food cravings and just a touch of ‘ucky’ in the afternoons, NOTHING like little miss H’s pregnancy. I still don’t ‘get’ why some people claim to like being pregnant but I don’t ‘hate’ them for lying about it now either… so far things are pretty darn smooth… Must be a boy :).
To handle the immediate question: No, we’re not moving out of the tiny house. We ARE adjusting things to accommodate us better! I get to go into this one knowing a little bit better ‘what kids need’ than the last so that is a big plus. We are making some adjustments currently to make things a little more comfortable for the pregnancy.
Mainly, I am getting my king size bed back!! (I am currently sitting on it in my loft for the first time in over a year, SO excited!) Hazel has just crawled out of her co-sleeper for months at this point and slept, mainly ON me… She’ll just span the gap until she has her own room in the extra two feet of comfy bed! Don’t mind the mess, it is totally ripped apart currently as I am in the midst of a DEEP clean!
What was going to be a breeze got a little complicated, we were going to just swap out the mattresses but as I moved the mattress it smelled a little musty. I looked and thought I saw mold. I pulled up the floor board and saw a wet spot in the subfloor below… Total freak out.
I ended up ripping up my floor boards to see the damage only to find out in the end that the one little spot where I saw moisture was a ring of orange koolaid stain that happened when I was first pregnant with Hazel and hated the taste of water so I had to drink koolaid. There was NO water damage. All the mold I thought I saw was just dirt and feathers from my bedspread that had been collecting in the corners around the mattress. So, no need to panic but now it’s nice to know things are working well and I have a brand new fresh subfloor and a very clean floor! To handle the musty smell that just comes naturally having the mattress sit on the floor James and I designed a little frame for the mattress to sit on and still allow airflow below. So now I will be sleeping in my UBER comfy king sized bed once more! And Denver has his own comfy (9 inches of foam) bed to lay in, which he does, ALL. DAY. LONG.
Here are some fun shinanigans from our sleepover in the studio while we tore the tiny house apart yesterday! Hazel’s smile is my favorite, goofball!
This week I will be going through the rest of the tiny house and giving it a DEEP cleaning and making sure things are holding up ok before we start our renovation, so that we can update anything we need to! I’ve also been getting ideas together for Hazel’s room/baby nursery? (maybe the first tiny house nursery, I’ve seen at least!). I will definitely be doing some glow in the dark murals! I am thinking this is the right paint? Does anyone have experience with these? I would love to know insider tips to make it awesome! Lastly, my mom turned 29 again! We all got together and went out to eat. I dressed Hazel in this shirt and waited to see how long it took for them to notice:
Mom took three minutes, through a hoodie mind you! Dan and Jeff were about 20, Nate and Gia were at a disadvantage on seating arrangements but eventually saw it too! Everyone is happy, most of all James and I. Here is my wild and crazy mom being a good sport at dinner!
I hope you have all been having as much fun as we have! All the best!
