We have heat!
Just in time for the impending cold snap, our heater is up and running! It only took 2 visits from NW Natural, 2 new ignitors bought online (which ended up NOT being the problem), 3 visits from Pace Heating, 2 new circuit boards and 1 big credit card swipe and we are now warm in the whole house (not just downstairs next to the fireplace!
In an earlier post, I mentioned how God gives and takes away.....well He gave again today when the Pace Heating guy waived the initial $79 diagnostic fee! Such a blessing! God is good.
For the purpose of documentation, Cayden and I developed a new game today. She has gotten really attached to her rubber ducky, and so I put it up on the 4th stair, and she learned how to crawl all the way up the stairs to get it, and then we practiced coming back down on her bum.
She wanted to do it over and over again, and even showed the kids when they got home from school! She is very careful when going down, a little nervous even, but she is brave.
