"Hey Mom, look what I did!"
"You missed the big moment Mom and I don't know if I can remember how to do it again!!"
"Life looks good from this angle and check out my hand down there, it can hold stuff!"
I remember when Mikayla was trying to figure out how to roll from back to front, we didn't want to take our eyes off her for fear we may miss something amazing!! This time around, we missed something amazing and really, it's ok. We properly celebrated her when we all realized what she had done!
I am happy that Caitlyn is developing normally and is experiencing all the milestones that a baby goes through. It is easy to take for granted the little things that our children do...we are so blessed.

The drywall in the basement is getting sanded on Sunday and then it will be time to paint!! The girls have chose their wall colors and I have picked a shade for the bathroom. The only decision left is what color to paint the large "media room". Any suggestions??

This week Brian painted our living room! The first color I chose went on looking forest green. I hated it. The second selection that Mike chose turned out perfect! Next project in here will be putting up all our pictures on a "family wall"!
I washed and de-labled bunch of old jars...
....filled them with spices and other items that were in plastic bags or packaging, labeled them....
...and wa -la! Things are looking much better! (I wish I had taken a before picture!)
Look at all the bags and awkward packaging I got rid of!!!

I took this picture before all the stuff was out and when Mike had a little bit left to do, but you get the idea :) This picture is taken from standing in the "media room" looking at the doorways to Mailee's room, bathroom and hallway. (l-r)
I like this tile on the floor look. Not sure how white grout would look overtime...Also, we are going to tile the entire shower area so this may be too much teeny tile...or it may look great...??
This is just completely fabulous! I love the white subway tiles, love the dark cabinet (ours will bot be a piece of furniture like this, but I am speaking of the color)..I thought I wanted a marble counter top but the stone guy said it is not durable and that was enough for me to change my mind. He did show me a grayish granite that could give the same feel.
