Every week you are suddenly getting stronger and faster, and your crawling has quickly morphed into pulling yourself up to standing up at all times, whenever you possibly can. Thankfully you figured out how to sit yourself back down this week as well, because it was getting old having to “rescue” you every time you were ready to move onto something else. 🙂
We had a big weekend here at the house, because Daddy has been working on your new room! (Honestly, it’s just your old room with an upgrade.) Having your nursery be in the loft outside of our bedroom worked out great at first, but now you need more peace and quiet to sleep, so while we were in MN a couple of weeks ago, Daddy framed out the banister and built an entire wall with a pocket door. Last Saturday, we got everything prepped for the next step, and while we did that, we had you barricaded into a corner of your room. You didn’t seem to mind!
Once he was ready to texture and get the first coat of paint on, you and I took a couple hour walk around town to get you out in the fresh air and away from the fumes. Here’s a sneak peak of what the wall is going to look like. Did you know that Mommy’s favorite color is pink and Daddy’s favorite color is orange? We’re not afraid to paint with those colors either. 🙂
While we were out and about, we came across a yard sale, and you are pretty darn stoked with my $5 find. You bang on that thing and make it light up and play music to your heart’s content. It’s pretty cute.
All week we have watched you explore this new world that you suddenly have way more access to. It’s pretty cool, but it makes me a bit nostalgic for my baby. Where did you go?! You are definitely not a baby anymore.
