Things are coming on so quickly with the house and we have finally been given a completion date of the 27th September. Last Friday we took a trip out with Mum and David to check on progress. All the internal dry walls are in and walking around it actually feels like a house!
Here's a picture taken inside. As you can see we're all smiles at the prospect of the house nearing completion except one.....can you spot the grumpy face..?!
Over the last week Tabitha has taken to expressing her feelings using her facial expressions. This particular face seems to be a favourite and is practiced many times a day. It communicates many things in baby speak, namely; 'I don't like this, I'm not hungry, I'm full, the sun's in my eyes, I have a dirty nappy, I don't like that smell and I don't want to go in the car seat'.
So why am I writing this blog........?
This blog is a way for me to record and reflect upon my day to day life and all the changes that have happened to me over the past 2 years. In a nut-shell I moved from the rich, bustling streets of London to the sleepy suburbs of Washington DC all in the name of love. My biggest reward in this adventure has been the love of my wonderful husband and the birth of our beautiful daughter. However this transition is not and has not been an easy one; it's been filled with tremendous highs and devastating lows- all part of life's rich tapestry and part of my story that I want to share as a mother, wife and of course as an English girl settling into life across the pond.
