Saturday morning we woke up and were at the Dallas Zoo by 10:30. This was Caleb's first trip to the zoo and he LOVED every minute of it, despite the chilly weather. I think my son will be a future vet or hairdresser but that is a whole other post:) Here are some pictures of our first zoo trip with Caleb.
I left the zoo a little before everyone else because I was helping host a baby shower for a friend of mine who will be welcoming her first baby into the world in just a couple weeks.
I have another very very dear friend of mine, Stacy, who will be welcoming her second and third babies in a few short weeks as well. No, that is not a typo. Stacy is having twin boys. Her twins will make three for their family. Sweet baby Jack just recently turned 2. I sure wish I could quit my job and be around more to help her out. I can't wait to meet those precious babies. They are already so loved by so many people...including me!!
We have now listed for sale by owner in hopes that our price drop will bring in more traffic. After being listed again for about 1 week we got an offer. It was just what we were asking for, but they wanted a lot for their closing costs. Alex, who could get a second career in real estate, negotiated a higher sale price, and we would still cover what they were asking in closing costs. Both sides were in agreement, or so we thought. The buyers got cold feet and backed out:( Talk about a HUGE let down. That is the part that really sucks about selling a house. In my mind I was packed and ready to move. Let's just hope that this offer was a sign of another to come, and it will all work out in the end.
