color me happy:)

so first i have to tell you that i'm beginning to get used to the fact that noone in my house is taking 3 hour naps anymore. since we put sarah in her toddler bed, she's been waking up early in the mornings and taking 1 hour naps. isaiah doesn't take a nap at all now. i always relished the afternoons when both my kids would sleep for 3 hours. it was my mommy time... i could take a shower, read a book, read blogs, watch oprah. things have changed and for a while i was frustrated. but i think i've accepted it... okay, so i have to share about how proud i am of isaiah. every summer we take swimming lessons at texas tech. two years ago isaiah was the kid standing on the side of the pool screaming his head off. he wanted nothing to do with swimming. last year was better, but he was still apprehensive. he's a different kid this year! he had two weeks of swimming and although he still wouldn't put his face in the water, he loved it. so we signed him up for another session. watch the video to see him jump off the diving board!!! amazing.
and check out my new coffee mugs... we found them here. so every morning, when i visit this little corner of my kitchen, i get to sip my coffee out of a color just as yummy as my cinnamon island blend coffee:) mmmmmmm.
here's my big bathroom reveal... (note: images are a tad funky b/c the lighting is weird, but you get the idea, right?)

and my new stitched up burp cloths... the "ella" flower is an elsie design. all others are my own:)
