It is amazing how much holding a newly born inant can improve your mood. My friend had her baby three weeks earlier than expected, so I took the opportunity to visit her yesterday and meet her new little boy. None of her babies has broken the 7lb barrier and this little guy was no exception, although he did come pretty darn close. It was so strange holding such a slight little thing when I am used to holding my 10 lb plus monster newborns.
A number of you wondered if we could get another weight estimate. We did better than that and changed moving companies entirely. The lady in charge of coordinating the moves is a stellar worker and managed to get everything all taken care of super fast. My husband talked to her yesterday morning and by that afternoon we had the new company, the same moving dates (which was a great relief to us) and a walk through scheduled for later today.
If this company still has us at the ultra high estimate we will have to jettison some of our furniture. This is unlikely since a guy at my husband's shop moved his goods from a bigger house than we are occupying and was well under the weight limit. We shall see what happens.
I must say that the staff at this base has been quite stellar. We also converse a lot with the gal in charge of advising us about Tricare and she has been ultra helpful too. I am really going to miss the great service since we are moving to a very bare bones station that will not have the level of support staff that we currently enjoy.
