Yup, that's Right... Packing Time! We're Moving!

Trev and I have decided that we are moving into a bigger apartment. Right now we are currently living in a one bedroom and we decided that Amari needs his own space. Besides, he has a lot of stuff and I need to finish nesting seeing as I never got to complete his nursery. The past day I have been a busy-bee packing, packing, packing! To bad I'm distracted by the sweetest little one year old that thinks he's helping Mommy by taking everything that I pack out of the boxes! I am aware that he thinks its a game and likes to see my reaction when I tell him to go play with his toys and attempt to put everything back in the box; of  course, he still continues to be so very "helpful".

Today we packed up his book collection and a few of his toys. I left out a few of his favorite toys so that he has something to play with until Saturday when we move completely into our new place. All I know is that I am excited to put his room together. Over the past year I've found some pretty cute things that matched the nursery theme and I finally get to complete it! I even found these awesome wall decals in chocolate brown and baby blue to bring more color to his room and I got them on clearance at Target for $2.99. Now all we need to get him is a toy chest for all of the toys that he has accumulated over the past year and a book shelf for his room to display all of his lovely books. I even get to display my best friend Pam's one-of-a-kind painting that she made for my baby shower gift. I'm even tempted to try and do a few paintings myself even though I'm not he most artistic person in the world. I just can't pass up $5.00 canvases from Big Lots that are originally $20.00.

Even though I hate moving (because I've moved 12 times in the past six years), I am excited to move into a bigger place. It just means more space for our little family of three and a new beginning. I've always been a fan of change and decorating is my cup of tea. It's the only thing that I look forward to after a big move. The rest of the week will be filled with packing some more and cleaning our old place top-to-bottom so we can get our deposit back and I hope that Amari will enjoying having his own room! Mommy is going to make it super special for him.
