...on car seats and furniture

I woke up early this morning and couldn't go back to sleep so I decided to get up early and take advantage of some quiet time.  Really, I should get back into the habit of doing this every morning....
Man, the wind is a blown' this morning!  You know it's going to be an icky weather day if the wind is already blowing at 6:00 in the morning!  I suppose that will make for some creativity on my part today!  Thank goodness for pinterest, blogs, and the experience of working with toddlers for 2 1/2 years!

Yesterday was kind of a big day for our little toddler-we finally turned his car seat.  Yes, I know, I know, you are technically supposed to wait until 2 but he was just looking crunched back there so we flipped him around.  It was so fun driving yesterday and easily seeing this sweet little face behind me.

Jack, on the other hand, was playing it cool.  I think he was just trying to act regular like, "yeah, I'm a big boy, no big deal."  Probably in his head was thinking, "really mom?  Do we have to take a picture?"  Well, I don't know if he really cared either way but we were very excited.  

(note the pink smudge on his cheek-I'm pretty sure that is lipstick...)

On Sunday my mom headed back to Phoenix, did I mention she came out for a visit?  She hadn't seen Jack in a while so she made the trek out here for a quick little visit.  Hopefully Dad can make the next trip!  Sunday we also headed over to Adam's grandparent's house one more time to pick up some furniture.  We decide to try and salvage some pieces which means that we now have a garage full of projects.  I'm super excited about these for a few different reasons.  1:  They are family items and while they probably aren't fancy or worth much, I think it's great to have pieces of furniture that have some kind of story or meaning behind them.  2:  Adam is actually excited about refinishing furniture!  My dreams have come true!  and 3:  I get to do a little sewing-they had this lovely chair that is in great shape but in need of new cushions.  I'm especially "psyched out of my mind" about this project!  Hopefully we'll get them done sometime in the next month or so, give or take a little because I have pretty much lost my husband to tax returns for the next month and half.  

P.S.  Parenthood season finale is on tonight!  I just love that show-kinda sad the season is already over!

  1. When did Jack get so big? It looks like he grew up over the past week!
