Another addition

by singlemomseeking on October 8, 2011

As most of you know, we’re adding onto our little home:

Recently, we found out that one of our builders from Mueller Nicholls has quite a reputation. I’m referring to the sweet guy who’s wearing the vest below, standing behind our amazing architect, Scott McGlashan as we talk about paint colors.

Apparently, something very exciting has happened at some point during the remodels of many homes this particular builder has worked on: more than a handful of couples conceived during construction. (Maybe adding onto your home plants the desire to add to your family?)

Now, we’re part of his successful statistic. Because we have another addition in the works.

As in, a baby.

The irony is that our builders have squeezed us into an even tighter space this week: a new, temporary wall went up so they can start sheet rocking, which means that the three of us are now living together in 400 square feet. My growing belly is making this small space feel even smaller.

Fortunately, Mueller Nicholls is working as fast and efficiently as they can so we can move in before our “little pumpkin” arrives in early April. We’re quite thrilled.

Congrats on the new baby! 🙂 I’m sure it’s kind of crazy going through all of the changes in your home while being pregnant.

You guys sound like you are handling it beautifully. xoxo

Wait. What?! I’ve been freelancing my butt off and haven’t had a second to read any of my favorite blogs for months. I finally get a chance, and THIS is what I find?! Holy moly, I should swear off reading blogs more often if this is the kind of amazing stuff that happens! 🙂

Congratulations! I’m so very happy for you!

@Martini Mom: You’re a few steps ahead of me, and I need you to keep up with your posts so I can learn about parenting a newborn… again! Congrats to you, too!

There are just so many exciting things to be excited about. Congratulations on the baby and your home’s renovation. I can imagine how happy the builders are to create a home for another conceiving couple.

That’s wonderful! Congratulations!

That’s great news! Make sure you add on an extra room for the giant washer and dryer you’re going to be needing. Adding a new baby *I did it last year* creates an overwhelming amount of extra laundry!

I loved the build up to the big announcement. Too cute!

Also, I love the paint color swatches in the bottom picture. Are those some of the colors you’re using?



singlemomseeking October 11, 2011 at 5:20 pm

@Camberley: Yep, we’re going with that color combo on the bottom, with “Deep River” as the main color and the other two as the trim!
