It's been so fun to stay at home with Crew all day.
I love keeping up on the laundry and dishes and meals.
I know. It sounds funny but it's true! 
(minus the getting spit-up/peed/pooped on several times a day)

Along with all of my mommy duties, I have had a chance to work on some fun projects as well.

First is this huge magnetic chalk board. I really wanted a big one so I found a place online,
ordered the magnetic chalk board in the largest size it would come and then found
a frame to fit it on KSL. The guy was selling 2 gold-leaf frames, each at $75. SCORE! 
I feel like I stole the frames from him. These would retail at over $300 each. 

It's almost as tall as me!

Next, I have had fun decorating our apartment. We got a new rug from Ikea that is 
so soft and nice and a few other accessories. 

We needed an ottoman but I didn't want to buy one so instead I turned our old coffee table
into one. I just painted the base, wrapped it in foam, then fabric and used upholstery tacks to finish it off.
I think it turned out pretty dang cute for $13 bucks! And it's been really nice to put our feet up.
You can also see the side table I scored for $15 at DI and just painted the top white.

 I just love making our house feel like a home.

In other news, look at this adorable baby!
He is so stinkin cute in his little pea coat.

He has been sleeping GREAT at night- regularly going at least 8 hours.
It's the day time when he gives us a run for our money. I think the poor little
guy is just bored all the time. He is very social and is happy as long as there
is someone paying attention to him or something exciting happening to entertain
him. Otherwise, he will just sit and fuss. AH! I'm going out of my mind and
am fresh out of ideas to keep him occupied.

Do any of you moms out there have any ideas to keep the little guy busy?

{4 months}

 This adorable little boy is 4 months old! (plus a couple of weeks)
He is an absolute joy to have in our home. I simply can't remember life without him.

He is 75th percentile in height and 60th percentile in weight.
A big boy! Which is funny considering he was a little baby.
It's crazy to think he has gotten everything he needed to get that big from me :)

As you can see, he is such a happy little one. He will smile at just 
about anyone that will pay attention to him. He is also extremely active! 
It's gotten quite hard for me to keep him entertained during the day because
he is so curious and it just kills him to not be able to get around on his own.

Most mothers say I should enjoy this time that he can't get into anything but I am very much 
looking forward to him crawling and exploring his world. 

Look at those big feet!

We just adore our sweet little Crew. 
Lance has already got such a soft spot for him and Crew loves his daddy.

We just feel so lucky he's ours. :)
