New Addition!!!

We are pleased to introduce you all to a new member of our family. He joined our family a couple weeks ago and he is an absolute to have around. I have to say he is probably my favorite child. He is easy going, polite, and very low maintenance. He also has some pretty cool tricks, like he can fly around the room (with the help of his brother).
So without further ado I'd like to introduce you to .....

Paper Landon!!

When Landon brought Paper Landon (PL) home from school he made sure that PL was assimilated into the family. He would save a spot for him on the couch, take him to bed with him, and play with him pretty much all day for pretty much a week straight. Sometimes I think it would be great to be 5 again!

I was ready to write a post about all the things I hate about being pregnant when it dawned on me that no one wants to hear me complain, so instead I am going to post about one of the positive side effects of being pregnant, nesting. I was actually a bit surprised when this nesting side effect kicked in because I don't remember ever nesting in any of my previous pregnancies. I am not going to lie I really enjoy nesting, I feel much more accomplished at the end of the day because I am getting things done and I sleep better at night because I wear myself out during the day.

Here are 2 of the projects I have completed as a result of nesting. The first are wall letters to hang in the nursery. We are pretty sure that this little boys name will be Levi and if for some reason we change our minds I can always make new letters, they were super easy. You can't really tell from the pictures but the "I" has a solid brown background with darker brown polka dots. This next project was a little more involved. My friend Lillian gave us an old wardrobe they got from Ikea a while ago. I was super excited to get this wardrobe becasue we do not have a ton of storage space in our house. However the wardrobe was a light color and the furniture in the nursery is pretty dark. Not a big deal but I wanted it to match a little better so with the help of Jared I restained the wardrobe. The color isn't a perfect match to the rest of the furniture but I think it looks good. To finish off this project I made some curtains for the outside of the wardrobe.

After:Here is a close up of the fabric that I made the curtains out of. I am using these same fabrics in the baby blanket I am making for Levi.
