First, I'm so proud to have an article I wrote in the first issue of the online newsletter Crunchy Carolina! Yay! I'm sure I'll learn and grow a lot from reading the other articles.
Suzi's Nana and Papa came today to put up her swing set. I didn't get a good picture of the whole thing, but it's a sturdy wooden four-swinger with a landing and a slide, and it was given to us for free! Jordan and his dad worked their butts off all afternoon to put that smile on Suzi's little face (see above). I'm pretty sure Jordan and Suzi are passed out in the recliner about now.
Speaking of the recliner, which is practically the only new piece of furniture we own, and we bought it last year to rock our baby... Well, it's officially earned its title of wise purchase.
We are mostly finished with painting the living room and I love it. The extremely high over-the-stairs area was tricky, but we worked it out. It's been a big weekend of waiting until Suzi falls asleep, sneaking off to paint, finishing each other's sentences (and singing), arguing and making up. Less than a week until my baby's birthday!
