It's beginning to look a lot like.. a birthday around here! I'm so thankful to have a nice, big craftroom where I can spread out all my "junk" and work. I'm also glad it is downstairs in our walk-out basement and not upstairs where our main living areas are located. With Harbor close to walking, I know my glitter is safe. : ) My mom caught me working on some crafty birthday things and since these pictures are almost three weeks old now, I feel like I should show you some of the cute little things I have been working on. I have a lot more finished now and have enjoyed handmaking most of "theme." Hip, hip, hooray for birthdays!
I found an old post of my craft room here, but man, I need to update you with some pictures. A lot has changed down here.. I have some new furniture that is really fun!
Harbor is already 10 months old, but these pictures are from about two weeks ago when we went for his 9-month well baby visit. He is healthy and tall. I'm so happy that he hasn't had an ear infection, a cough, or a cold yet. I'm wondering if I am exposing him to little things everyday when I come home from school? If so, I hope it is making his immunse system even that much stronger. I did make the decision to vaccinate him with the flu vaccine. He ran a slight temperature for a day or so, but ended up being just fine. We are seeing a new doctor and I really, really like her. Her husband is also named David, they also waited around seven years to try for their first baby, and she is a scrapbooker. She touches my arm when she talks to me and I love it because I am SUCH a touchy-feely, "have to hug people when I leave" kind of gal. It sure makes for fun doctor's visits.
Oh my goodness... the best money ever spent was spent on Harbor William's bicycle trailer! My mom was super kind and bought it as an early birthday present for Harbor and it already has some miles on it. We ride about three times a week and just get out there and break a sweat. David usually leaves me in the dust, even though he is pulling Harbor and my zillion bags of snacks and diet cokes.. I mean water. : ) He yells, "Down shift, up shift" All I do is turn both of my gears until it sounds like my chain is going to fall off. When I hear the "clicking" sound I stop. I have no idea what i'm doing, but I think I have David fooled into believing I am a cycling genius. Maybe.
Every Saturday morning, pending we don't have to be somewhere, David gets up early and makes a big breakfast. I always look forward to sitting at the table together in our p.j.'s and discussing how we are are going to spend the day. HW really likes to eat eggs and we have started letting him have a tiny bit of sugar-free syrup with his pancake. I tell David we are getting him ready to have cake on his birthday for the very first time! : )
A few weeks ago, David hung a swing out of the big tree in our front yard. My mom and I were so jazzed to have a place outside to take Harbor without having to load up and go to the park. I really want a cedar swingset and we are thinking this spring would be a good time to invest in one. Until then, Harbor really enjoys going outside with Bichon and taking it all in. We are so glad we were able to save all of our nice big trees when we built this house two years ago. A swing in the front yard is just what I had envisioned. : )

Have a good weekend! We are booked! Saturday morning, David has been hired on to do some landscaping in another neighborhood, and Saturday afternoon David has an "engineering" cookout for the family get together from work and Sunday I am throwing Rachel and Ashley a party at their new apartment.. it is a recipe party. Can't wait!
