Long Overdue

This pretty much rocks my world and only just feeds into my obsession with Kate Middleton!  (Pippa who?) How did I not know about them before the royal wedding???  Tragic.

Sooo, on top of reading any and every royal wedding magazine there is, I have been working on our house with my new roomies, Mary and Lulu!  Mary is the project manager because without her forcing me to work, nothing would ever get done.  We make a good team because she has decorating ADD.  As soon as she starts a project, she thinks of the next thing to do and starts on that.  I'm left to finish the first project.  (hello, white trim for days!)  You can see some of our progress in this photo:

The ugly green cabinets are going to be painted white!  I'm hoping it'll look fresh & clean!  That's why we chose the celery/minty green for the tops of the walls.  So far, so good!  Also notice the paint splashed across Louisa's face.  Thank you, Scarjo!  While Mary and I were chitchatting, Scarlett took my paint cup and brush, snuck over to Lulu and wham!...painted her face.  Luckily, her eye was avoided; Scarlett is seen here assessing the damage. 

Speaking of little Miss Katie Scarlett...she's just acting so much older nowadays.  She seems more ready to start potty training, so that will be our next step.  Oh wait, and WEANING!  Geesh, it seems like it's looong overdue, but she's still needing it to fall asleep!  And maybe moving her into her toddler bed, too!  Lots of big girl things that need to happen, so I'm just appreciating her little bits of baby that are left...

Scarlett talks lots!  Much of what she says is still jibberish to us, but she does say 'yes' ("yeesh"), 'please' ("eeese"), "aaah, ruff," Rex ("eeex"), meow, neigh, uh oh, and Mummmm!  (I love that she knows yes and not no!)

She runs and jumps and DANCES all the time.  I even caught her playing pretend!  She picked up a mini brush and a small container, dipped the brush into the container and proceeded to "paint" Tyler's toe nails (hehehe!).  It was the cutest.  Smartest baby ever. 

Louisa's the smartest baby ever, too!  She is reeeeally trying to pull herself up all the way and is a little chatterbox herself.  I forgot how sweet baby babbles were!  Lucky me that I have a little little one in the house again! 

We are all missing Alyssa lately.  Disagreeing with Molly = less Alyssa love.  Wicked sad.  Buuut, while Alyssa was visiting, I snapped some fun pictures of my favorite three year old. 

jumping to Uncle Tyler!

Busted!  haha
So, aside from spending naptime stalking Kate Middleton online, completely tearing apart the kitchen, and watching naked babies playing in the driveway puddles, I've been reading MODG's blog and she's making me feel spendy...uh oh!  I'm totally off to windowshop online!  Yes!  I'll leave you with photos of my favorites:
