Great news- we got our carpet in the basement! YEAH!! It's such a huge relief. We still have some things left to do- putting up doors, finishing outlets and things like that, but we have started moving stuff down and Grant will finally have his own room very soon. The carpet was installed on Friday and we spent a few hours down there laying on it, running, rolling and somersaulting around (well, Scotty ran, rolled and somersaulted- we did the laying!) and then we left for the cabin for the weekend. We love the carpet, our painting turned out cute and everything looks really nice. Miles did such a great job with everything. He's awesome!! We'd like to thank Aimee's friend for blogging about the polka dots she did in her daughter's room and Mel for the creative guidance.
Now- is it too early to complain about how long it takes to vacuum down there?

Scotty was very excited to help vacuum!

I thought about letting Grant lay on the carpet and touch it, but I had just fed him carrots and didn't really want a nice fresh carrot barf stain on our new carpet!

Lots of work, but worth it in the end. It's hard to tell here but the wall below the dots is darker than above the dots.

Mel gave us the idea of putting Scotty and Grant's handprints on the wall. We were scared it would be a disaster, but it was pretty easy and turned out cute!

Scotty loved the new carpet. He ran upstairs to bring toys to play with and had a great time.

Posts coming soon!

I have a few fun things to post about but I haven't gotten around to it yet because......THE BASEMENT IS ALMOST FINISHED!!!!  I have been spending every spare minute cutting out tons of circles to paint in the playroom.  We should have the painting done either Saturday or Monday and then carpet in sometime next week!  I'm so excited!!!  So, hang in with me and I'll get some posts about Scotty's first day of preschool, Grant's first taste of baby food, my weekend trip to Arizona with Grant and maybe I'll think of even more!

6 months

Yesterday was Grant's 6 month birthday - can you believe it??  We can't.  The time has flown by and has been so much fun.  Grant really is a sweet baby.  He smiles a lot and hardly cries.  He sleeps and eats well and doesn't cause us any worry.  The past month he has started playing with toys and chewing on everything.  His favorite thing to chew on is my finger!  He likes his hard toys over his soft toys so maybe we'll be seeing the first tooth soon!  We are very excited to be going to visit Aimee and family tomorrow!  And Miles and Scotty are looking forward to a fun boys weekend too.

Rice cereal face.

He had a great time playing with this Macey's ad.

What a cutie pie!
