fifteen months.

*i just saw this sitting in my drafts...was originally meant to be posted on August 12.

we stopped doing a specific monthly photo, but this one shows how much he's grown!
at 15 months, he weighed in at 24.8 lbs and 32 inches. yowza!

at fifteen months, my little guy is still running everywhere and climbing on everything. he is non stop action and definitely keeps us on our toes. saying he loves to be outside is such an understatement. he's OBSESSED with being outiside! he also loves his milk and even fakes tiredness because he knows he gets milk right before naps! he just dropped his morning nap which is very sad for mama ;) He's talking more and more. he FINALLY said "mom!" micah's current list of words ::

da-ee = daddy
dye-dye = bye bye
toe-toe = coco (my parent's dog)
na-nah-nuh = banana

i might be forgetting one or two because it seems like he's adding words all the time now! as his language skills grow, so does his love for being around people...specifically adults :) he has always been outgoing, but the whole talking thing takes it to a new level! thankfully, he hasn't discovered "no." he'll shake his head, but he hasn't said the word yet ;)

he loves music and dancing and will start swaying the minute he hears some music. he has 10 teeth including 2 molars. his hair is as curly and crazy as ever, and it's probably time for a trim, but we just can't bring ourselves to do it! he hands out the kisses like crazy and we are SO in love!

micah man, your mama and daddy love you more than you will ever know. you are a joy to be around, and we couldn't imagine our lives without you!!


a couple more.

here are two more things that have made it into our home recently...the pillow i made, and the print i downloaded from this blog. The print hangs in our kitchen and i wish it was a little larger, but both things make me incredibly happy!


labor of love.

this project was a labor of love. hours and hours went into it. mostly because i'm crazy and had to score each line before i folded it. yah. it was inspired by this post...from pinterest of course ;)

i wanted something for above our tv, and alex agreed to make the frame so that i could have a base for all of the papers. the "P" was cut on my Cricut (which i've since sold for a Silhouette). i was giddy when i finished this project. i am in love, and even my picky hubby loves it...okay, maybe love is a strong word, but he definitely likes it!


kitchen projects #2 and #3

this was another pinterest project for me. the tutorial for the zinc inspired letters is insanely easy and i literally completed this project in 15 minutes (uncluding drying time!)! i didn't take any process pics because i am really bad at that, but trust me when i say this was EASY! oh, and did i mention that all three letters cost less than one letter at anthro?! score!

for the next burst of color in our kitchen, i used left over fabric from the bunting, and put it in embroidery hoops. they are fun little pops of happiness above the sink, and above the doorway into the hall. super simple and super cheap...my favorite combo!!


kitchen project #1.

as soon as we moved in to this house, i knew that i wanted to do something different in our kitchen. when we first moved in, we had chocolate brown curtains in the kitchen, but i had dreams of a brighter kitchen, especially since we have a big window in the kitchen that lets lots of beautiful light in.

i quickly found some lime green curtains that were way more what i had envisioned. then, i found pinterest. love.

i found tons of great ideas for things i would like to do around our house! i also have some martha stewart dish towels that i LOVE and so i used the colors in them as the inspiration for the rest of the kitchen ::

i have always loved bunting banners and since i do have a sewing machine, i tried my hand at making one! i love the way it turned out...just don't look too closely at the stitching ;)


micah isn't too keen on reading books. in fact, he acts like it's torture, but i recently found (via pinterest) that barnes & noble has an online storytime with authors and celebrities reading the stories. so fun! micah made it 1.5 minutes which with 1.5 minutes longer than he normally does :)
