Snuffing Junkie

So I've given Emmett nosedrops maybe 3 times ever. But he found them within reach one morning and gives them to himself now...whenever he can get his hands on it. Not sure what he finds enjoyable about this. Maybe just the fact that he loves taking lids on and off

Projects as of late, and of course, the Little Mr.!

Had to throw in one of the wedding, but I'll do more of our Christmas vaca later!

He picked up this little nativity (it's Mary holding Jesus)
and he did his little 'baby wave' to the baby Jesus & was kissing Mary on the head.
I don't know where he gets this from (maybe he's Catholic deep down;) but it was sweet

and for Aunt Besty Pants finally! He LOVES this hat from her
and wore it an entire weekend-helped me put it away one time, then cried when he realized what we'd done and wanted it back & tried to put it on his head

& Micah just photographed away as Emmett tried to burn down the house.
He only sticks things that are on wires or cords into the outlets, so he's kinda smart!

Micah was trying this bike around and Emmett had to get on...
& hold onto BOTH handle bars...while still trying to sit on the seat, of course

Someone likes helping with brownies!

onto some projects...
I looked all over for the right sized frame and anything new & this big was expensive, so after a few tries, I found this at Goodwill, of all places ;)

used some scrap fabric....

and came up with this to match the quilt Aunt Besty made!

Here is a before of our room...we've never had anything but a frame to hold up the mattress...

I don't have a before of the actual dresser, but this is more or less the same

When Mom & Pops came last spring, they helped me finish up the bed

& I finally just finished & added 2 nightstands

(Mom helped me pull all the extra stuff off the dresser & sand it down for the finished product!)

It needs some more color and stuff, but here you have our bedroom...
originally it was going to go into the guest room & I was going to paint the walls gray & have white furniture, but Micah claimed it for our room since it was needing (we were looking at buying furniture but haven't found anything we love, so I just started this project to see if I could do it)

and back to the real reason anyone looks at the blog...

Emmett loves Christmas lights!

Wednesday, December 14, 2011


Emmett kicks off his cover and since his bedroom stays a little cooler, I put him in this 'sleeping bag' lately. He apparently loves it and comes running every time I lay it out!


at last! Just 2 days ago Emmett really started walking!

and was back to crawling when he woke up the next morning!
