It has been a while so I figure Id do a mini update!
Our house is still coming along. It's been difficult with trying to tackle everything with long work ours and a toddler... no family nearby to help. But, we are making progress! Here is a picture of our mantle. My husband is super talented. Next, is to hang the tv in the top!
The before picture, which is from online :) You can see it was a brown mantle..We painted it white and then we created a separate piece up top.
The wall paint color is Mink by Sherwin Williams.
Once, everything is hung up..I will post more pictures!!
I went back to work 2 days a week! Wow, what a transition.. it was about 2.5 years since I worked and I won't lie..I almost quit! So glad I didn't. I am an OTA and I've met some very nice people...great therapists and my patients are just the best. Well, most days they are :) I work in an Alzheimer based facility. Some days are fun..others are sad..but I always leave with the feeling that I hope I gave them purpose today. 2 days a week has been great...allowing me time with my little man...and getting back to work has helped me regain who I am... who I used to be... I'm not just a Mom! Plus, bringing in some money doesn't every hurt!
A few weeks ago I entered to win a Joovy race-car and a gift card to SwimZip...and I won!!! I couldn't believe it..I never win! Isn't that what we all say? :)
Andrew starts school in two weeks!! Its a preschool class designed for 2 year olds. Two hours a day...Two days a week. He has been in Speech Language Therapy for the past couple of months, due to delayed speaking. The boy understands what we are saying..requesting.. He is super verbal...but just not saying specific words. I think we are up to 6 words now..Which is amazing considering all he was saying was Hi and bye...The Speech Therapist is very excited for Andrew to start his school, and she tells us its the best thing for him. To be around other children his age who are speaking...allowing him to observe and learn. Physically, the kid is amazing. He kicks a soccer ball better than me.
We went to the beach last month for a couple nights and wished we could have stayed longer!! We only had one great beach day..and this was it!
We went to Bethany Beach, DL..where I went every year as a child. So naturally I took my kid to all my favorite places! One being the Candy Kitchen!!! This is also the beach I went with my Grandmother..who passed away this past April. Wow, it was definitely emotional walking around and remembering those specific moments...
The Husband and I are finally getting away at the end of the month. We are headed to the beach. Just the two of us. I can't wait!!! It feels like forever since we have had a a few days to ourselves. Between his crazy work schedule..me working...Andrew..house projects... Its been really busy.I miss us!
So, that's about it! I can't wait to share pictures of my Little Guys..First day of school!!! I'm already emotional just thinking about it. I mean ..its only 2 hours a day.. but still!!!
