Nature Walk

Today we walked around our complex looking at flowers and collecting little things.  Emmett found a flower and pine cone.  I showed him how to blow on a dandelion and he loved it. He was mostly blowing spit out but it still worked.  I said, say dandelion and he said, cacaliiio !  Good Effort!

At 19 months he is learning so much faster than before, I find it amazing!  You can tell him a new word and he knows it!  Watching your children learn is a cool experience.

 Last week my mom came with us to our mommy and me class and took some photos of what we do.
We start by going to different play/ learn stations, then we all sing songs with the teacher on the rug.  After singing or reading time is over we are broken into groups and we get to do some singing and drawing with the teacher one on one.  After we are done with that station we move onto snack and art.  Finally we end with clean up and a good bye song.

Finished Bathroom Before and After

We are finally done updating our bathroom.  We spent a lot of time and worked really hard to fix this bathroom.  Everything except the shower was done.  We started by peeling all of the paint off the walls, that alone tool forever!  The owners before us had painted the walls with oil based paint that nothing would stick to.

We then removed the toilet and plastic flooring.  We tiled, made a whole new cabinet, Grant made the concrete counter top, put in a new light fixture, moved the electric switch, new mirror and frame, and new toilet.

This took a long time, but it turned out great.

Before pictures


It is really hard to take a good picture of such a small space!  The nice thing is the cabinet is a lot higher now and there is a ton more storage.

Old Photos

My mom and I went through two huge boxes of photos the other day.  It was so fun to see them all and ask questions about our family history.  I found a few of me from when I was Emmett's age.

 I am on the left and Emmett on the right.  Just in case anyone was confused hahahaha.

Date Night

Friday night Grant and I went out to dinner to BJ's restaurant.  We were planning to go to Famous Dave's but when we got there it was an hour wait and there was no room to get a drink at the bar so, we headed next door where we were able to get 2 seats at the bar no problem.

It is almost impossible to get a good family photo.  Someone is either not smiling or looking blurry.  Here are the only few that turned out ok.  And a huge huge THANK YOU  to my mom who baby sat Emmett.

Last week my mom came to our swim lesson so we could get a few pictures and some video of Emmett in action.  Of course he decided to scream through a lot of the lesson, but he was tired.

It was also super crowded which I find really irritating.  I probably need to go on a week day when no one is there.

 We met our friend Jane and her little girl there.  Its always nice to meet up with friends.

Even though Emmett was screaming the instructor said he still did everything we told him to lol.
So I guess that counts as learning.

Store Fun

When we went to the store last Friday Emmett got to ride in the little car connected to the cart. 
He was having so much fun driving and saying beep beep to everyone.

The only melt down was when the ride ended and we had to go to the car.

Yesterday I realized Emmett can now put the shapes in the right opening in the shape toy.
I am amazed because literally a month ago he couldn't do this without getting too frustrated.
Its amazing how fast an 18 month year old learns.

 I wish I could learn new things this fast hahahhaaha!

 Here is a drawing I just finished for a customer.  Let me know if you would like a drawing done.

 It has become really hot again.  Like 100 degrees hot.  We had a huge toilet box to throw out and I decided to make Emmett a play house.  Its hard to find fun things to do inside, but this kept him busy most of the day.
 Welcome to my house!

First Week of September

Its already starting to feel like Fall, it has cooled down a lot in the last week and we finally don't have to have our AC on!  We have been working on the bathroom still and I am starting to wonder if it will ever be done hahaha.

On Thursday we went to the doctor in the morning because Emmett scratched his eye some how and the redness wasn't going away.  Once that was taken care of we went to Lowe's and I bought everything I needed to fix up our backyard. 

Of course Emmett had to pose with Mickey and Minnie in the store.

 I made some hanging cactus baskets.

Friday we visited Great Grandpa.
He has the best back yard!

 We played with cars!

 Right before bed Emmett was messing around wearing Grandma's shoes and hanging mama's keys around his neck.  I had moved a chair to get something down in the kitchen and he went running head first right into the kitchen table!  Getting a bloody lip right before bed is never fun!

I think it was a case of running while messing with your phone lol.
