Our Neck of the Woods

9.20.2013

I realized this morning that the blog has been pretty quiet this week. I do have a bumpdate post that's ready to go but it's missing one important thing: the picture! Hopefully I'll get my act together today and get it taken and posted. In the meantime, here's a little bit of what's been going on in our neck of the woods:

-Emerson has been sick with a nasty cold since Tuesday. I hate it because there's really not anything I can do for her. We've been doing lots of cuddling on the couch and taken plenty of warm baths. The last two nights she got a full 12 hours of sleep and she seems to be feeling a bit better today.

-Last night our little neighbors rang the doorbell and asked if E could come and out and play. Even though she was already in her jammies and probably still a little bit sick, she was so excited and I just couldn't say no. They did bubbles and sidewalk chalk, as evidenced by this face:


-We've made a couple of outing without diapers and she has been pretty successful. The first was to Chick Fil A and she stayed dry for over two hours. I was a nervous wreck though because I was terrified that she would pee up in the play structure! But she didn't and actually waited until we got home to use the bathroom. Yesterday we went out to breakfast and to run a few errands. She used the potty out in public for the first time so I was super proud of her! Unfortunately she had a little accident on the way home but I know it will take time for her to get the hang of it.

-I have been searching high and low for a dresser for Adelyn's nursery for the last month or two. At first I planned on buying one and refinishing it but I realized it probably wasn't feasible with everything else that is going on. So I found this little shop in the town next to us and went to check out their stuff yesterday. They buy furniture and redo it and they had so many cute pieces. I came home with this little gem and I am absolutely in love. The nursery is only 10x10 so I knew I needed something a little bit on the smaller side. I think this piece is just perfect!


-I'm thinking it's time to pull out the Fall/Halloween decorations. Even though it's still 90 degrees here, I've been waiting three years to decorate for fall and I'm determined to do it. Hot weather or not!  I guess it's also time to get started on Emerson's costume. I'm attempting a DIY- we will see how it turns out. :)

And I guess that's it for now. Check back later for my 22 weeks bump date! Happy Friday, friends!

Such a cute dresser.

Hope Emerson feels better soon. Nothing worse than a sick kiddo!

I know what you mean about fall decorations. Even though its still in the 80s here I couldn't resist decorating. We haven't had fall in Africa for two years!

I LOVE that dresser and it will be so sweet in a girl's room. We bought an already finished, older dresser for Haley's room and I love it. But I love the one you found with those adorable knobs too! Good job E on the potty training!
