The Scavenger

How come Addie won't eat what I put on her clean high chair, but she'll eat anything on the floor???

Hmmmmm....what's this?

Looks like food to me! Yum!

Gross Alert, I repeat Gross Alert!!!! One time after coming in from out side, Brian found her moving something towards her mouth. He swatted at her hand before she got the object in her mouth and was horrified to find a wiggling silk worm on the floor!! Why? Why? Why?

I am now working part time! Yeah!!! Brian started a new job 3 weeks ago and I am now able to work 3 days a week! He works Mon, Wed, Fri and I work Tues, Wed Thurs. Addie gets to go to our friends house (The Arroyos) every Wednesday and she absolutely loves it! They have a 5 year old girl (Abby) and a 21 month old girl (Lanie) who Addie adores. She has always loved being around other kids, but she is in hog heaven having a playmate for an entire day. So, we couldn't be happier with our new schedule and feel sooooo incredibly blessed that Brian was able to find a job during this horrible economic crisis. Now, I will finally get to spend more time with my baby girl and maybe, just maybe find a hobby. Currently, I am liking the photoshop thing. This picture was at the Santa Ana Zoo on Saturday and I couldn't resist posting it.

Home Ownership

Brian and I have lived in our house for about 2.5 years and are still very much in the process of making home improvements. Since the day we moved in, I have hated the carpet in our family room. Most of the house has beautiful hard wood, but the family room had this awful forest green patterned carpet that had yellow bleach spots and felt like sand paper. When we had Addie we swore we would replace it before she was able to roll around or crawl on it. Well, she's been rolling for months and luckily was a late crawler (she was 10 months) and we FINALLY replaced it. We also painted (the previous walls were yellow complete with stains where the previous owners had hung pictures), replaced the ceiling fan and put in new baseboards. Now, we just have to finish putting new trim on the windows, hang the curtain rods and curtains we have, and figure out what we want to do with the brick shelving. I LOVE OUR NEW CARPET!!! It feels like heaven! Addie loves it too. Now maybe one of these days I will find the energy and the time to take down the fruit wall paper in the kitchen!!



Before carpet, paint and furniture that is comfortable and actually matches.

After! I also love our couch. It's so comfy and fits so many people.

Yet another angle before:

Final after!!
