Don't mind the pose, I just wanted a picture of what the belly looks like leaning over and I guess that's my "uh oh it's getting heavier" face.

So after many months of wondering where we would live next and daydreaming about having more space I think we've found it. Surprisingly, it's not a single family home. It's a townhouse. Now I was really against even the thought of living in anything other than a house while searching, but once we saw the place, considered the going rate for 3 bedrooms in Hawaii, and weighed the pros and cons, we decided we're just not willing to risk losing this place. Especially since we run the risk of having only 3 weeks left and getting screwed in to settling for something less than satisfactory. 
I woke up this morning at 6:30 and couldn't go back to sleep because my mind had already started calculating dimensions, shapes, sizes, our furniture, new furniture, design, colors, and what it will be like living there. Every once in a while I start to second guess our decision and panic that we should of held out for a house with a yard instead of a townhouse with balconies. Or a house with a garage instead of a house with assigned parking stalls(ample open guest parking though). But in the end I think it will all work out and am reassured by the well kept interior(which is really hard to find here unless you're rich), the amenities included(HEATED pool, kiddie pool, mini-gym, rec room, tennis/basketball courts, the location, and the fact that we are still just renting and can move again in a year if we're not happy. We should be able to start moving in on the 28th and, of course, I'll post lots of before and after pictures. It's strange to think that this will be baby's first home.. our first home as a family. But exciting!
