To the Park

We have been lucky enough to enjoy some warmer weather, it is been in the upper 40's lower 50's this week. We have been taking the opportunity of our very close park. Keagan has enjoyed climing up and down the stairs, going down the slide and swinging. I can't wait for spring to be in full swing so that we can go more often.

Helping my Daddy

Earlier this week, Andrew spent some time out in the garage building some shelves for storing things. Well, of course, Keagan just had to be out there "helping" as well. I couldn't resist going out and taking some pictures of them.

That part of the garage looks really good. Next step...building a work bench. It is a good thing that there is a house being built right next to us and the builder told Andrew that he could take the scrap wood.

Keagan's Owie(s)

Keagan has been quite the climber for a while now and the more he climbs the more daring he gets. Well, he has now had two pretty big accidents, thank goodness nothing worthy of having to go to ER or Doctor. The first one happened on Saturday a little over a week ago. Andrew and I were in the Kitchen and Keagan pulled one of our dining room chairs into the kitchen. He climbed up on it and then started to push on the back of the chair and rocking against it, the chair fell over and somehow his bottom lip got split open in a couple of places (maybe with the help of his teeth). He started screaming and then we noticed lots of blood coming out of his mouth (for those of you that really know me, knows what blood does to me!). We were trying to get his lip washed off and the bleeding to stop, but whenever we tried to put a washcloth by his mouth, he would start crying again. Later that night and the next day, he had quite the swollen lip. I, unfortunately forgot to take a picture of this.

The second one happened this past Saturday (do I see a pattern), but this time at Andrew's parents house. Keagan was staying there that night so that Andrew and I could celebrate an early Valentines Day since the day after Valentines Day we will be heading to Salt Lake to see my whole family for my sister Jeanette's wedding. Well, when Andrew picked Keagan up on Sunday morning, his parents showed him Keagan's ear which had quite the bruised spot. Once again he was on a chair, fell off and somehow bruised his ear. Here are some pictures that we took yesterday (Monday). You can see the bruise from both sides of his ear.

When we got out the camera to take some pictures of Keagan's ear, he got excited and kept putting his whole face at the camera and wasn't all that happy that we only wanted a picture of his ear. Hence Andrew's hand holding Keagan's head and the funny look on Keagan's face. The second picture, Andrew was holding Keagan upside down so we could try to get another decent picture.

Pictures of Our House (Finally)

Yes, it has taken us quite a while to finally get this done, but it seems there are very few days when I actually have the motivation to do things. So, here are some pictures of our house.

Front Door/Entry

Living Room & Sitting Area
Kitchen (I love it!!!)

Master Bedroom & Bathroom

Nursery--The only thing we have done is paint the stripes. All the big stuff for the nursery (Crib & Changing Table) is still in Keagan's Room.

Keagan's Room--We have some decorations to hang on his wall and then I am making a quilt for when he goes to a twin bed. Then the crib and cribset which doesn't match the blue won't be there anymore.
