Just Because

Here's what's going on around here this morning. Happy stuff!

Just as a side note, I am so so glad we went ahead and got this motorcycle!  It has been incredibly popular and well-used among our boys and pretty much every little guest that comes over; boy or girl.  We've had many a tussle over whose turn it is to ride.  I guess this means we're cool because we'd have to be to have such a cool toy ;)

Paint Job

It's been a couple of months now but back in January we got our master bedroom and bathroom painted and I wanted to document it here.  The story behind why we did it is long and boring and makes me look kind of bad so I'll spare you the details ;)  Suffice it to say we like it lots better now and are happy with the result.

It was quite the process picking just the right shades; one for the bedroom, one for the bathroom, one for the ceiling.  We tried a total of 15 colors which I think meant at least 4 or 5 trips to the paint store:

For the bedroom we ended up picking the shade that was my second favorite, we were worried my very favorite would be too dark (here in Oregon it's a good idea to keep things light).  I'm feeling wistful about my favorite but am loving the light airy feel the one we ultimately chose provides:


For the bathroom area we opted to go with what was basically the same color, just a shade lighter (it was one level up on the color card).  It works very, very well in this space and I think we picked the best color we could have here.  It creates a warm, soothing feel:

Caden's First Haircut!

I took Caden to the barbershop for his first haircut the other day.  We love this little barbershop, they are just perfect for our family of boys (thank you Laurie and Sarah!).  I took some before and after pictures but am bummed that you can't really tell much difference between the two.  You can totally tell in person though and it is great to have a baby with well kempt hair (it really was getting unruly).  I decided to post the pictures anyway because, well, I just really wanted to post pictures of my husband and our baby!
