I know every parent probably thinks this....
but I think my boy is just too darn cute. :)
Playing with his toys... he's getting too big, but it doesn't slow down.

So, I'm just soaking it all up. Heart full of love!

Feature Friday- Bathroom and Framed DIY mirror

I know you thought I'd ended this series, but apparently I like to bring it back every random Friday or so...

We actually have still been doing things around our home, but it's much harder to photograph and post and all that with a baby. Let's face it- it's much harder to do just about everything (with a baby). But everything is also more fun and cute when he's around. :)
This project has been a long time coming (let's just say we messed up on our first go at a frame, oops).

So, for the 2nd go on this project we 100% followed the tutorial from House of Smith, a DIY blog I've followed for years. The differences are - our mirror was much larger, we painted ours brown afterward and then added poly to make it waterproof. Also, our frame is actually only kept up by Command strips, in case a future buyer wants to repaint or change. Since we are in the Coast Guard, we always think of our future buyers.
Also, our mirror was longer as you can see in our before pic, but handy hubby cut the mirror using some type of razor, he asked at Home Depot and they told him how.

So, this bathroom was actually gold when we moved in-- I knew I did NOT like gold, but didn't really know what I wanted. So, we primed and painted white, but we knew that still wasn't it. We finally settled on this and we love it. I will try to remember to come back and add the new paint color soon.

First mirror shot and blank wall.

New paint, new lights, new frame, new art and new knobs and finally we've got a pretty cute bathroom. Those builder bathrooms are just so boring!

The second picture is more true to the real paint color. So, there you have.... Feature Friday. TGIF

At 5 months

- Your first little tooth broke through (I think the day you turned 5 months actually) :) And then your 2nd one a week later

-You started sleeping terrible, most likely due to the previous item. But then mommy followed the Sleep Easy Solution and things are better than ever!

- I gave up dairy, eggs, and peanut butter. And your rashy self cleared up beautifully. You finally look as smooth as a baby's bottom. Jake and I both have some milk protein allergy's in our family history, and apparently you inherited this, sorry buddy. **Post note, now I have given up wheat too, and your back to rashy. Seeing the allergist next week. :(

-You are a chatty little guy, people always comment on how you just "talk and talk". It's cute.

- You are obsessed with the iphone. You hold it like a pro. I can only imagine the future of technology with this generation of kiddos growing up.

-You have rolled back to front on occasion, but not very often. The other day dad said, he's never going to learn it, and as if on command 5 seconds later you rolled back to front right in front of him. (Showed him, ha)! Even though you don't get all the way over, you've mastered this rolling back and forth thing without turning all the way over to scoot around, it's kind of funny.

-You are just like daddy, a fat kid at heart. You try to eat any and all food you can get your hands on. Mom pretty much only lets you get your hands on banana, avocado and sweet potatoes. But you've tried to eat chips, a lemon, dad's burrito and endless amounts of paper when I wasn't looking. You eat sweet potato fries by yourself and you look like such a big boy. Slow down little man

-You are still such a mama's boy. Dad will have you and when I get home, you literally do a dance and jig. Those are the moments that make it all worth it!!

Keaton was mean mugging so hard for all these pics, this was literally the only smile out of like 30 pics.

Zoom in, to see my tooth!

That is until dad started playing with you of course...Stinker!

And just for fun, check out another baby.... or last month's post.

Holy cuteness

Do I have a cute baby with a chubby face or what?

Those cheeks and lips, if only they stayed so sweet forever. ♥
