Our kitchen is done! I just have a few touches left to do with the curtains and hang a couple of things up, but I'm calling it DONE. RJ put about 800 nails in last week (no joke) to get up all the floor boards, trim, quarter rounds, and trim, trim, trim. We've got a lot of trim work. And I love it! I got the job of priming and painting. We're a good team.
I'll post photos soon! I'm sure you are all dying with anticipation, right?!
I'll at least leave you with some pictures of the kiddos.
Henry talked me into buying Popsicles the other day and we've been enjoying them on the front steps. This August has been so awesome in the weather department!
My hours and hours (and years) of practicing braiding hair on my Barbie head have finally paid off. I can get Harper's hair into a french braid. One of the many (little) things I love about having a girl.
Then there's my boy. He has completely stopped napping and after a few rough weeks at first, he's doing great with it. He now just does "quiet time" either in his room or sometimes downstairs with me. One day he came down after his quiet time covered in marker:
He was pretty proud of himself and I have to admit I was a little proud too. He usually hates getting messy so this is a big step for him!
And one of the many (little) things I love about having a boy? The nightly wrestle matches. After supper Henry has started cleaning up his toys without being asked, to make room for the nightly brawl. He's always the superhero (usually Spiderman) and RJ is always the bad guy. I sit on the side lines and save them from the bad guy and encourage Harper to get in on the action too. (and she usually does...and is pretty scary about how tough she can be) I love that she has a girly side but I really love that she has a tough side. Boys, watch out.
Hope you are all having a great week!
