It's been hard lately to find a moment to break away from daily life to find time to blog. In part is has to do with still trying to get things back to normal after our painting ""adventure" labor day weekend; I'm still trying to catch up with laundry! Some of it has to do with trying to plan and get things ready for Evelyn's birthday party which is a mere 3 weeks from this coming Saturday. In any case it seems that most of my posts lately have been checking-in sort of post. Oh well that's were we're at right now I guess.
-This little one is getting braver and braver. Still to scared to actually try and walk, but standing and doing various different things have become the norm.
-She also took her first big tumble this past week. We even ended up going to the doctor to make sure she was ok. Thankfully it was just a bump and even that was pretty much gone by the next morning.
-See that diaper box there. Well Evelyn decided to push it to the rocking chair and use it to hoist herself up there. Thankfully we noticed before anything bad happened. Now you see how she fell and got hurt. The girl is a climber!
-It's thankfully getting cooler around here. Cool enough that I'm evening drinking warm coffee sometimes; like now for instance. It also means we don't have to run our A/C. It gets so cool at night that I open the windows and as long as I make sure to close them before it gets too warm the next day the house stays nice and cool.
-We've been trying to spend as much time with this guy as possible! Since he had to work this last weekend we've only had evening to catch up, but that's better than nothing. Evelyn loves her daddy so much. She even waves and says, "Hi, Daddy" whenever he gets home from work. I can't get her to say "momma" to save my life.
-See that lovely embroidery hoop filled with beautiful vintage fabric and the word "beloved" embroidered on it. Well that my friends was made for me by my very special blog friend Gina. I have been oohing and awwing over her embroidery ever since she shared some pictures of it a few months back. She offered to make something for Evelyn's room and I just leapt at the idea. When it arrived in the mail I was so excited to put it on her wall I found a nail immediately. I think it fits her room perfectly. Thank you Gina!
Well there you have it friends. That's what I've been up to as of late. Tomorrow both Nick and I are getting out eyes checked so that means new glasses! I'm so excited. I'll be sure to share pictures once I have them.
Also I haven't forgotten about sharing pictures of our painting project. We still don't have chairs at our dining room table or in our living room. Once that happens expect a post devoted solely to our painting "adventure".
What have you all been up to lately? I'd love to hear from you!
Have a wonderful weekend!
