My little home body started preschool and was convinced that school was going to be "stupid and dumb" and he just wanted to "stay home with mommy." You could take him to Disneyland and after an hour he'd ask how long it was going to be before he and I could go home and hang out together. I love that he wants to be with me all the time because he's such an easy-going child but I knew he needed to get out and get socialized so preschool was a must! And here's how excited he was on the first day...

I am happy to report that two weeks later, he has decided he likes it and doesn't cry at all when I drop him off anymore. He just asks me if I'm going to wait on the preschool porch for him the entire time he's in there.

On Sunday I set the camera on the BBQ to get a self-timed picture of our family -  the last one as a family of four!

Le Nursery
Again, just documenting what's got to be taken down and moved in the next few weeks. I wanted bright, fun colors and pretty much repurposed stuff I already had, except for buying a new crib and painting the walls.

The white dresser was mine when I was a little girl and the old scooter belonged to my mom. I gave the dresser a fresh coat of white paint and replaced the old wooden knobs.

Even though this will be baby boy #3, I wanted to do new crib bedding. I bought inexpensive, plain white bumper pads from Ikea and covered them in the scooter fabric and then made a new crib skirt.

Our house has been for sale with the listing set to expire at the end of the month which was fine since we didn't think it would sale in this market and who wants to move at 8-1/2 months pregnant? I joked that as soon as we combined the two boys into a new room and did the nursery, that we would get an offer. And then that exact thing happened. We are super excited about the new house we found, but all the work I put into these two rooms over the last two months makes me want to cry.
