It’s been a while since I’ve added a post – I’m sorry about that. Things have been quite busy lately and I haven’t had much time to do anything other than “work work” and “home work”. The job has been particularly demanding – to the point that I’ve actually started to wonder if it’s time for a change. Still, that’s not the point of this post so we’ll come back to that later (if I feel the desire to write about it some more).
Outside of work we have been quite busy! Next week is your mom’s baby shower, which you’ll read more about in a future post. We, especially your mom, have been busy planning for it and preparing the decorations, favors, and other items. However it’s this other item we’ve been working on that is most exciting for me to share (well I guess technically we’re “working on” Faloo but that doesn’t count here). I am excited to tell you that we believe we have found your first (or second) home!
Thus far, your mom and I have lived in various apartments as we’ve formulated our long term career plans. We weren’t sure that we would stay in our current town (honestly, I’d prefer other areas around NYC) but recently decided to commit for 5 years. In fact, we were just about to start looking for a place when we learned that your mom was pregnant with Faloo. This sped up our house hunt and, after a lot of searching and research, we came across a home we loved. The nice thing about it is that it’s new construction so we’ve had the ability to customize a lot of items around the house. A lot of this is with Faloo in mind and making it as comfortable as possible for him (and any future kids) to enjoy.
I’m really excited to watch you grow up in this house. It’s a 3-story townhouse so, if you’re anything like your old man, you’re going to love running up and down the stairs. Meanwhile, I’m going to seriously stress about it since the place has hardwood floors and I don’t want you to fall. <sigh> All the stupid and bold things I did as a kid are about to catch up to me in the form of a son. I know you can’t read yet (hell, you’re not even out of the womb yet) but do me a favor and try not to break anything, dirty the walls, knock over the trash, play with the toilet, climb on furniture, etc. It would really make life easier for your mom and me 😁
Unfortunately this house won’t be ready until after you’re born so you’re going to have to live with us in our current apartment initially. Hopefully the house will be done on time and, within a couple months of your birth, we’ll all be chillin in the new place and enjoying the comforts of a brand-new home!
