over the edge.

Well a few weeks ago I posted about being on the verge. And it's official. Things here have completely fallen over the edge of sanity. In the 2 days I was gone, my little man learned to crawl. He's been scooching for awhile...but now he is a torpedo on knees. The crawling led quickly to pulling up...and was quickly followed by taking steps. And I don't even have a baby gate yet.

Last week he was still a gum-less wonder...and now he is sporting 2 new teeth (and a third tooth that has cut in about half way).

Remember my new chairs? They are so groovy. I love them with my whole being. I love how they so conveniently match my business colors. They will look so very swell in the shabby studio I have yet to find. I plopped Sam up in them tonight and he began to squeal and belly laugh...about the same response I gave when I first spotted them in the antique store in Grand Island, NE (not exactly a true tropical oasis but the antique shopping is mighty fine).

So we took a couple of pictures with them for fun.

Played the "you wave to me and I'll wave to you" game.

And showed off one of our new Olive Jane diaper covers.

Then we really topped off the evening by taking a peek outside at the girls enjoying SPRING IN KANSAS.

We've got about 5" on the ground and it is still coming. My poor daffodils. They are gonners.

That may have been the clincher for me. I'm feeling more than a bit over the edge...needing some sunshine and a good dose of chocolate. Or maybe just a day of antiquing for a few more treasures.

Hurry up spring.

LOVE the chairs! What a great find and definitely worth the effort to get them home. That little S is growing up so fast. Holy cow!

Also? That's a lotta snow and freaks me out. I'm officially done whining about our five straight days of rain after seeing that.
