Oh my.. it's been awhile. we have all been sick, and are finally all feeling better. It seems like things just keep getting busier and busier these days. I can't believe that this thursday my little monkey will be 1 and a half! where has tthe time gone? he is now this little person who does pretty much everything on his own...with the help of a step stool of course. he picks up his room, puts his clothes in his dirty hamper, helps me stir when I am cooking, brushes his own teeth ( after mommy or daddy has brushed them!). But his favorite thing these days is still his cars. he always has one in each hand..more if he can figure out a way to carry them! here is picture from the other day. we were on our way home from runnung errands and he had fallen asleep with a car in his mouth!
about a month ago I rented a dumpster. I got the itch for a little spring cleaning even if it has been snowing! I threw out a lot of stuff ( and boy does it feel good!) and misplaced my usb cord for my camera. so I finally found it and can update pictures. I have been addicted to craigslist. I bought a couple of dressers and re finished them and I have been doing a remodel on our master bathroom. I have been a busy girl. I decided that If I was going to fix up and redecorate then I needed to be creative and try and do things as inexpensive as I can. craigslist if great for that. I even had some success selling a few items. I got a sewing machine for christmas so I have been teaching myself to sew. dave and I..I mean I splurged and bought riley a car table to play with. He loves it! so i have been spending many days just sitting and playing cars with riley! We are going to the doctor on friday for his 18 month check-up. I cant wait to see how much he has grown since last time!
