Getting settled... temporarily

We got our new backpack in! If you read the previous post you can remember that we dragged a stroller and baby up what felt like a thousand too many stairs. I am probably a little too excited about this but what can I say? It's like a new element of freedom. A freedom to explore Europe!

I am also overly excited about the fact we got our "express" shipment in from the States. You never know how much you love a daily household item until you go 7 weeks without it!
Our beloved microwave! We have been cooking everything in the stove. It is such a relief not to have to wait 55 minutes for a frozen dinner. Back to 5 minute meals! Yay! However, I am sad to say our beloved microwave will only be with us for 6 weeks. We move into a German home in September and we have learned that microwaves and transformers do not mix!

I can not tell you how much I missed Miles highchair! I could have kissed this thing all over. It's so nice to be able to put Miles in his highchair, give him his cheerios, and fold some laundry! I've been having to feed him on the floor and well... I'm sure all you mommies know what happens with that.

Hallelujah! We have our TV again! Even better...We have American channels! People speak English on our TV! Back when we were at the hotel it was all German channels (which was better than nothing), but ever since we've been at this temporary housing we haven't had a TV. I never realized how nice it is to have voices in the background. It has been quite the lonely 2 weeks.

Looks like Brad is going to get to enjoy Miles playing with his ears every time he is in the backpack. I'm pretty sure I couldn't cook anything w/o a microwave, so I feel your pain. :)
