For the past couple of weeks, there has been a crew working on replacing the windows and siding of our apartment duplex. I was really concerned about having all the hammering day in and day out, but Lili did great and was able to sleep through most of it all. It ended up being kind of a blessing after all, because she was so interested in what was going on and we ended up referring to the group of 4 workers as "the guys". In the morning as soon as we were up, she would ask to "see guys!", and whenever she was fussy, we would just go "see guys" and she'd be happy. She is also in this phase where she is asking "what's that" or "who's that" all the time, and so we got to know the working crew pretty well. We're sad to report that they've finished today, and we didn't get to say a proper good bye.
I didn't get to take any pictures before the (really awful) old windows were replaced, but here is before and after with the siding:
