It feels like sleeping outside is super healthy for some reason. I haven't researched this, it's just a mom instinct. Another mom, Joanna, agrees with me and I love her challenge of trying to do something outside every day during the cold months.

I am making a light quilt for my one year old boy. It is his belated birthday present from me. I have yet to start but I have a few ideas like these birds and all the fabric I need. Now it's a matter of pinning down the exact idea.

So it's time, my baby is now sharing a room with his big brother. It's going good so far with a few kinks, but overall it's good. I think the smiles speak for themselves. More details and follow up about sharing a room to follow.
To celebrate this big move and make it more special for my older son, I am redecorating a bit in there. We built a couple of headboards around my son's toddler bed. The two headboards are foam covered plywood pieces which hang off the walls. My son leans against them to look at his books and it makes his corner much more cozy and warm. I think he likes it so far. More instructions with pictures about building cheap headboards to follow.
PS. That is my older son's pajama outfit. He refused to take off his "Bob the Builder" shirt, which he wore all day long and had to wear his thick "Cars" themed socks. A week ago, my son wore his rocket pajama's all day while we went to the market. It was cute, we didn't mind.

I wanted to do an art project that captured us as a family, but wasn't the typical handprint or footprint. We painted a ceramic leaf plate using our fingers. Each one of us made a caterpillar using our fingerprints. Of course everyone was assisted by mommy and that included daddy as well. Nothing wrong with a little artistic direction. Right.

Winter is long so we have a swing in the house. It's so much fun for my kids and mommy.
And yes, we are picking out paint colour for our livingroom. I love the blue during the night and the greeny/grey in the day. It's so hard to get it right. It has been months since I've started the process of choosing paint. It's a big job for us, so we're being slow and steady.
