Playing in the grass

The above picture is very deceiving.  Don't let Baby Pribs trick you into thinking he was happy here.  Because he was actually very tired and cranky.

6:30 is Baby Prib's bedtime.  Lately he's been rubbing his eyes and fussing a lot earlier than 6:30 though.  Tonight we tried to stretch him out by playing in the grass.  He wasn't so sure about it all.

Smile for the family photo, Baby Pribs!

Stand on Daddy, Baby Pribs!

Look at the sky, Baby Pribs!


Okay!  Time for bed!

this past week

 this past week was one for the books.  we got three very big things done.

1.) we finished wallpapering the Southeast attic room and put up the bookshelves (really they're IKEA spice racks)

 2.) we redid the front porch.  rented a sander from HD, put a layer of primer on it, then put that lovely grey paint on it (or is it purple?  i'm colorblind)   And while I was at it, I went ahead and painted the back wasn't in as bad of shape, so I figured we didn't need to sand or prime it.

 3.) I cleared out a whole section of weeds right in front of our back porch.  DOES WONDERS for the back yard appeal!  The hubs bought some flowers and I'll get them planted sometime this year.
In other news, Baby Pribs is not napping well this week.

It looks like this....
And then eventually this...
And just two weeks ago he was taking 2 hour naps in his crib.  What is going onnnn?  Not even the swing will he nap in.

We do have some new neighbors.  A bird decided that one of my Boston ferns was the perfect place to call home.   I accidentally watered her nest and the two eggs inside of it.  As of today though there are two more eggs and the mother bird was sitting in the nest.

And that's that!

Silas' 6 Month Check up

Our little turkey officially weighs 17# 3/4 oz and is 28.25" long.  He was too long for the weight machine.  His legs hung off and rested on the table.   He did NOT like being weighed.

Mr. Pribs was able to cheer him up after the weigh-in though.

Everyone was impressed by how well he could sit up!

If I had known....

 I had known that we would only need 1/4 of a crib, we could have saved alot of money and space!

Pizza Night

For the first time since we lived in Alabama I made homemade pizza dough.  It was delicious!

I chose to top our pizza with spinach and mozz because we have a healthy obsession with both.  Oh, and also some tomato.

I didn't think to take a picture of the pizza AFTER it was baked, so this is the closest I have to a picture of it being complete.  Woops!

Also, I should mentioned that it's been one year since I painted out countertops and they're holding up really well.  Pretty impressive!

Hanging out with Dad

The sun last week was to DIE FOR (in terms of photography).  Rob was hanging out with Silas in the backyard one evening, so I grabbed my camera and took a few shots.
