And… we’re moving again!

Tomorrow the movers are coming to pack up and gather all of our stuff and then on Friday we’re in our new home. It all sounds so simple!

Regardless of the general moving stress, we are all super excited. This is a big change for me and Lily though we’ll still be staying on the UWS. It’s been just the two of us for the past six years. But we are both really excited to start this new chapter, combining homes with Stephen into a beautiful new place which is conveniently located right next to Lily’s school. I kid you not.

Lily is beaming and giggling and talking about her new bedroom and what she wants it to look like. Every time anyone speaks to her about it she just lights up. This kid is just amazing. So open-minded and invested in this new adventure. It’s almost exceeding the buildup to Christmas.

She independently navigated this page the other day when talking to Elaine, her speech therapist. (FYI this is a complex sentence to structure using Tobii/PODD so it’s pretty mind blowing.)

And then this is what she said she wants for the color of her room:

Consider it done kid!

Feeling loved

I know it’s been a while dear reader. But Lily and I have been busy ladies! Starting a new school, finding a new home have been huge endeavors.

This past weekend we moved our lives from Brooklyn back to Manhattan. We will miss Brooklyn terribly. But our lives will be so much easier. We are now eight short blocks away from Lily’s new school and 30 blocks away from the office. No longer do we have hour long (or longer) commutes. We also don’t have a third bedroom, but there’s always a compromise!

No less than 12 people physically, and at least half a dozen virtually helped us girls move our home this past weekend. And many brought, or sent flowers to make our pretty new home even prettier. Thank you is an understatement!!

We are the luckiest, most loved girls in Manhattan.
