I tried really hard to think of a clever title...

Well it is Wednesday, and that means it is time to blog. I have been so disorganized these last few weeks because we ran out of ink, so I couldn't print my chore chart. But things are better now that I have my chart to guide me (I feel foolish. I made the chart. I decided what went on it. I'm the one who did the chores. I could have just kept doing the things on it. But it just isn't the same if I can't check off the boxes).

Okay, so. Here is what has been happening here:

David has the terrible new habit of spitting his food all over. He takes a couple of bites just fine at first, and then his just starts blowing non-stop raspberries. (Sigh). He gets so messy, and I'm worried he's not eating enough because he's having too much fun playing. He's been waking early from naps because of it, and I just don't know what to do with the kid. I guess the answer is take a darling picture and post it on my blog. That way I vent some frustration, others can give me some helpful hints, and everyone can have a good laugh.

Erik's story is a little sweeter. Steve went to get him from a nap on Saturday and found him all curled up on his side with his blanket. We had to take a picture because he looked so stinkin' cute!

So many times I find myself longing for the time when the boys are asleep and I can get things done or have some time to myself. Then when they are in their room, they are all I can think about. Sometimes I want to go wake them up so we can play and snuggle. I don't, but I think about it. :)

Also included in this week's pictures are some photos of the babies' room. I've been working on these decorations for months, and this Saturday I finally hung them up (with Steve's help). We hung a bunch of other things too. Steve says I have used up all of my "hanging things credits," so I'll have to earn some more before Saturday.

Messy baby David! He has decided that spitting his food is the best thing in the world. Mommy disagrees.

Sleeping baby Erik all snuggled up. Steve went to get Erik up from a nap and found him like this. We had to take a picture before we woke him. So sweet!

These next two are at a baby's eye view because that is the only way I could get the crib and the name in the picture.

Please ignore the messy laundry. I didn't realize it was in the picture. :/

Angee helped me with this one a lot. The frames at the bottom are still crooked, but I haven't bothered to fix them yet. I want to get some more recent pictures in them first.

Clever titles are overrated:)

Super cute rooms for your boys! It makes me sad that my boys aren't in cribs anymore. And, don't fill bad about your chore chart. Just keep doing whatever works for you. You are a great mom and wife.

Your boy's room looks really cute...and it's called a "honey do list" Steve, I never heard of "hanging things credits." lol I'm sure he'll do anything you ask, he's nice. I love messy David and sweet Erik's pictures, so cute!

Heather, I bought the letters from Michael's craft store. Then I traced them on scrapbook paper and glued them on (my sister showed me how). It was really easy and fun.

Their room is so cute! You're so crafty! You're motivating me to finish Sam's room. :)
