Trying to be crafty

The other day one of my coworkers posted an inspiration picture from Pinterest and it got my creative juices flowing. I am not a very crafty person but I would love to be so I try things every once in a while. I am really glad that I tried this one because I LOVE how it turned out.

I am still trying to decorate Harpers room and slowly it is coming together, other then the fact that I have decided to repaint it so that has slowed me down for sure. I saw the picture and decided I would love to make one similar for Harpers room. Well here is my finished product:


So what do you think? I really like it and I think it will make a really cute decoration in her room.

4 months & 22 months

Can you believe I have babies that old? We are nearing the 2 year mark for Kalen and while it is so exciting it also makes me a bit sad. He is so much fun right now (not always fun let me clarify) he laughs like every one should. He is so smart and getting smarter by the day and somedays he amazes me with the things he knows.

I took Harper for her 4 month vaccinations early this week. She did really well was a trooper for the most part. Her 4 months stats are:

Weight: 11 pounds 14 ounces
Height: 22 3/4 inches

She is still small but proportional so we are happy. She still has a flat spot on her head so I am trying to do everything I can to get ride of it. Let's hope I can get rid of the flat spot soon.

Just as a fun comparison here are Kalens 4 month stats:

Weight: 13 pounds 4 ounces
Height: 24 inches

One year ago today...

We learned that our world was about to take a big change. I had been feeling off for a few days but kept convincing myself that I was wrong.... no way.... not possible. I told M that I thought something was up and he said "no way, not possible". I decided that I was going to buy a test just to make sure I was wrong. I peed on the stick and it immediately showed two lines..... I just stared. It had to be wrong...... NOT POSSIBLE I thought. We went for dinner at M's dads house trying to forget what we had just seen the whole time we were there. We came home and I took another test, this one too immediately showed two pink lines........ we were expecting baby number two. I was so scared in that one moment that I did not allow myself to think of the good things to come...... the joy this little baby would bring to our home...... I am so glad she is here. She loves us and we all love her.

Kalen turned 10 months old on that January day. Our baby was going to be a big brother.....

Bath time

Kalen loves bath time. Kalen and daddy are bath time buddies and I am so happy that they have some time that is "their time". With Harper here we have started to have two babies in one bath but that only happens every second or third night. As a special treat we started using bubbles in Kalen's bath when he is in there alone. Let me tell you, he LOVES them! Here is the proof:
how cute is this kid!
eating the bubbles
he did not want the bubbles on his head
a bubble mustache like daddy
playing away
cleaning his hands with the bubbles


I love this little guy SO much!
