GUEST BEDROOM MAKEOVER WITH CHALK PAINT!

Caitlin had this bedroom set as a teenager and needless to say she was rough with it! The veneer was scratched and chipped in many areas. I actually felt bad giving it to her because it was in such bad shape....not to mention CHEAP! But Caitlin had a vision which included painting the furniture. After googling ways to paint furniture, I stumbled onto Annie Sloan's chalk paint .... but hated the high price! Then I stumbled upon DYI chalk paint made with plaster of paris! We love the results!!!! For those of you interested the key is the final step with waxing the furniture for protection. I used Minwax paste/polish.

RUNAWAY BABY AFTER BATH!

Video- LITTLE SMARTIE!

NEW THINGS!

Little Miss Gracyn has turned her wonderful sleeping habits during the night upside down! :-( Over the last 6 weeks, it has been like the newborn stage again.  She refuses to sleep in her crib.  Hopefully this phase does not last long.  Mommy and Daddy are tired!

On a positive note, Gracyn continues to take a few steps here and there on her own.  She is still very dependent on cruising furniture or holding on with one hand.....but every once in a while, she gets brave and lets go!!!

Yesterday during the YOUR BABY CAN READ VIDEO....Gracyn followed along and pointed to her body parts.  She now follows the video with smiles, mouth, belly, head, ears and "sings" with the music while she dances.  Way toooooo cute!
