My Dearest Grant,
You light up my days and sadly still my nights. Did we really have to get up at exactly 2 am last night to relive your birth?
At one you are:
Inquisitive - you crawled over to the fridge and put your ear right up next to it when it started making noises
In love - with your siblings
A talker! whoooboy. A new word every single day.
On the move - crawling at lightening speed, standing up and starting to make your feet move
A worrier - about places and sounds that are new
An eater - everything in sight
An explorer - you love opening doors and cabinets and finding all sorts of new and exciting things
A builder - trying hard to put big legos together already
A thinker - I can see your brain ticking away in there
And my sweet little pile of yummy, chubby baby love.
It might have been hard work getting you here, but you are worth every minute of it my sweet.

Done and dusted. My last first birthday party. It makes me sniff just a little.
Orange and aqua elephant party this time. Picture overload.
*Almost all of the party supply stuff came from oriental trading. They have a new line of orange and blue striped/dotty stuff. I used oilcloth for the table covers this time so that I can actually reuse the fabric for something rather than just throwing it away. Little blue elephants are from Gymboree, wind up elephants from dollar tree.

Dave indulged me over the weekend and moved all the furniture and our giant ass tv. (Yes, do not be fooled by pretties, I have a 42 inch tv in that room. Hey, we live here!)
Out come more quilt tops from the cabinet. I want to live with them and love them every day.
LOVE IT. I want to get more photo booth pictures taken of us so I can hang them up there.
So, a fun and funky bedroom makeover for ZERO dollars. Score!
This wall is next up on my "hit list". It no longer looks exactly like this, but I am dying to put something funkier up there too.
