Packing Progress Report!

Now that moving day is a month (ish) away, my life consists of packing, organizing, cleaning, and GETTING RID OF STUFF! This is what we have packed so far:
It's mostly clothes, DVDs, and some of Konnor's toys. I can't pack most of our stuff yet because we are still using it or we are planning on getting rid of it! We are getting rid of: Our couch, 2 bookshelves, dining room table and chairs, hutch, another shelf thing, plates, pots and pans, glasses, TV, TV stand, and a bunch of other random things. Our philosophy is, the less stuff we have to move, the less expensive it will be to move (smaller moving truck, smaller storage unit, etc.)! Our moving plans aren't final, but we have to be out of this apartment on October 31st so we do know that!

Steve made a fort out of boxes for Konnor! He loved it! Notice his left hand in this picture...he was holding a gingersnap in that hand so he was crawling around on his wrist so he didn't get carpet gunk on his cookie. lol.
Here is Konnor and Steve inside of his "real" fort that we bought him at Ikea. He is in this phase where he likes to hide in little "cubby holes" around the apartment and stash his toys in little hiding places. It makes clean up time really interesting! 
(OK, I have to interrupt this paragraph real quick to say that Konnor is spinning/running around in circles right now as his way of "dancing" to "What's My Age Again?" by Blink 182 that I have playing on iTunes! He LOVES dancing! Oh, now he just fell down because he got too dizzy! Hahaha!)
Also, speaking of hiding things, here's a tip. Always check your laundry basket before dumping the clothes into the washer. Steve just threw them in there without really looking through them (I had already sorted them so I can see why he didn't think to look through them). There is a picture of my lotion up there to prove that "Clinique Dramatically Different" travel sized lotion can go through the washer AND the dryer and survive!! Konnor must have stashed this in the basket right before Steve went to put it in! After spending the night in the fridge, the lotion is back to normal! Yay!

Here are two of my favorite pictures of Konnor this week:
 
Soooo happy!!! I love his adorable little laugh and smile :D

Konnor and his glow worm fell fast asleep...


These pictures are from dinner tonight... Konnor "Pizza Sauce Face" D.!

My heart melts.

  1. So the move to Kansas is on? We have to be out by October 31st too, no idea what's going to happen with us (Maddy and I) yet since I'm still unemployed. :(

    He's so adorable.

    I will probably start packing soon, I really just don't want to think about it right now.
