weekend recap thus far

this weekend has been fabulous! first, i didn't have to work thursday or friday (i'm not normally supposed to anyway but it's been a bit crazy at work lately) so i was able to begin some new projects.

project #1 = painting the master bedroom chocolate, status = one wall down :-(

project #2 = learning to sew, status = 2 completed projects!

project #3 = date night with hubby, status = harpers, shopping at south park, ice cream and free babysitters TOTAL SUCCESS!!!!

i'm so excited about this sewing stuff. my parents have been in town and my mom has taught me some basics. i was able to accomplish a pair of pajama pants and a new blankie for parker. my next project is this super cute boutique-ish bib and then I should be able to master what i've been dying to make--this uber cute boutique outfit. now i just need a little girl to make it for!

updates on the little man--parker's been doing great. he's become quite a little helper as he likes to imitate a lot. he'll put things away on his little shelf. he'll wipe his face, nose as well as the table, floor, etc. he talks in many complete sentences i just wish i could translate. no clue what he is saying, but he really is saying something! and this boy has a lot to say! he's been great at following directions too like go get your shoes on, or go wash your hands. i recently bought parker his very own potty. i realize we're still a little ways off from beginning any official potty training, but i wanted to get him something so he could be familiar with it, plus he LOVES the elmo potty training video and i think he's really started to make the connection. the other day i asked him if he needed to "make stinkys" and he went and sat on his potty (pants and diapers on of course) and then took some tp and pretended to wipe himself. not too shabby since i certainly haven't taught him that!

that's all for now, i'm going to cuddle up, read a good book, and go to bed!
