So, with the basement done, we have been spending time down there unpacking boxes and organizing all our stuff. Our kitchen in Ithaca was way huger than this kitchen, so we have mostly boxes of kitchen stuff that we don't want to get rid of but don't have room for upstairs.
Anyway! The futon is down there now, and we're starting to get Mirabel's room ready for her. Slowly. It's amazing how much more stuff there is to do with one more person in the house. We've done at least 2 loads of laundry a day, up from one load every 2-3 days.
In the midst of unpacking boxes and searching for things, I came across my wedding dress, along with accessories, some of which I never used. I gave Lili a veil that I made but didn't wear for the ceremony. She loooooves it and it will become an addition to the dress-up bin.
In other news, Mira is doing well, and Lili is adjusting very well to being a big sister. She's had spells of regression and whinyness but overall she really loves her little sister and has shown us that she can be very helpful too.
