Busy pants

I've been tired and super uncomfortable and not so bloggy lately. Henry is absolutely at the cutest, funnest age and is learning new things ever single day. Some of the new things have become a real pain though. For instance, Henry is very good at moving the kitchen chairs and climbing up them now. That gives me the pleasure of removing him from the kitchen table top 500 times a day. He has also learned how to open the long handled door knobs which gives him access to the bathrooms and also the garage if I forget to dead bolt it. Yay. Other fun things to mention, the antibiotic for his ear infection gives him explosive diarrhea. Trent was gone until 10 pm two nights last week and had an overnight on Friday. So basically I am exhausted.
It wasn't all bad though. Thursday evening I was able to go to the temple while my brother took his soon to be beautiful bride through for the first time. Saturday night I got to go to dinner with Lindy and some of her friends and then we went to a movie, so that was great. Yesterday was going pretty well too, until we arrived at Trent's parents house for dinner and Charlotte puked. (She seems to be feeling much better this morning.)

This week I have a lot of things to do. Things to start and things to finish.

Charlotte's room. Check. ( I will post pictures this week.)
Pack hospital bag. Started.
Put up bassinet. Started.
Paint nursery. Started. Here's a sneak peak. That is a silhouette of a tree on the wall. The tree is the original wall color. The teal is the new color.
Sew bumper pad. Haven't started.
Buy wedding present for Ted and Lauren. Haven't even looked yet.
Clean and organize house. Always a work in progress. Never even gets close to done.
Prepare meals to freeze. Not even started.

It is going to be a long week.

I am in love with that silhouette. Seriously, I can't stop looking at it. Did you free hand it? Or was it a stencil?

The tree is awesome! How did you do that?? Sorry about the sick kids though, and I vividly remember the pulling kids off the table stage- that is sooo frustrating.

I can't get over the work you put into that tree to avoid buying vinyl! Amazing work! So excited to see it all come together!

So did the bungee idea work for Henry?
