DAY TWENTY-THREE| JANUARY 23RD
One of our most favorite evening activities....dinner at College Hill Coffee.
This night we sat by the fire, Barrett ate Broccoli soup, and we played 'Go Fish.'
I was invited to exhibit my photography there in February and March, so we were
checking the display hardware :)
DAY TWENTY-FOUR| JANUARY 24TH
He may be FOUR now...but he's still my baby boy.
I don't mind when he falls asleep in my arms on the couch. I usually wait a little while to carry him up to bed.
You know, just for a few extra minutes of snuggling and kisses. Man, he's sweet!
DAY TWENTY-FIVE| JANUARY 25TH
Got out of the shower to find this view from my bedroom door...
My little man playing with Mr. Potato Head
Love that all our bedrooms are upstairs together and close.
Love all the natural light in Barrett's room (and the whole house).
Love decorating his "birthday" door with signs and balloons, just like my mom did for us every year when we were growing up.
DAY TWENTY-SIX| JANUARY 26TH
My little man's first trip to the dentist!
I won't lie...I was nervous about how he would do. If he would be clung to my leg, even sit in the chair, scream bloody murder. Boy, was I wrong!! He was a rockstar patient!!
We took Tiny Monkey, but he didn't even want to hold him...he tossed him to me!
He opened wide, and didn't shed a single tear. He looked so grown-up.
I almost shed a tear just because he didn't need me. Not to sit close or hold his hand.
He got to watch cartoons, so that helped!!
In the car on the way home, he told me "that was FUN."
DAY TWENTY-SEVEN| JANUARY 27TH
I opened the pantry to make lunch, and found this!
The pantry drawer was a parking garage :)
DAY TWENTY-EIGHT| JANUARY 28TH
Helping Papa put a new window in the RV.
Justin and I went to Wichita for the day (antique shopping, house stuff shopping, Abuelo's and to the new casino),
so Barrett stayed to help Papa work. He loves the RV, and loves to take his bag of tools to help "work" on things.
DAY TWENTY-NINE| JANUARY 29TH
Barrett's first trip to Walmart to spend his OWN money.
He's been saving up money in his wallet (duct-tape wallet made by his cousin Emily).
He picked out a new car, and gave the cashier his money.
DAY THIRTY| JANUARY 30TH
Beautiful afternoon! I painted furniture in the garage, and B played and played!!
This was taking a break. He told me he was going to sit down because he "really missed his daddy."
Two weekends ago, we cleaned out the garage. Made a huge garage sale pile (I am SO ready for garage sale season), and cleared out my side, so I can park in there finally. *You can see my Craigslist find from Sunday night! Two matching nightstands for our bedroom for $25! I was so excited!!
They were in Winfield, and match our bed and fireplace wood perfectly! Score!
DAY THIRTY-ONE| JANUARY 31ST
Snapped this from the front door after I got home from taking B to school.
The sunrise and clouds were beautiful! Another gorgeous day!
