Headboard complete

After months (approx 18 to be exact) we finally put all the pieces together and got our headboard completed. Turned out perfect! Thanks to my mom who made the perfect fitting cover, fits like a glove :)

I had always loved these lamp bases from Target but couldn't bite the bullet and pay $50 for each. However, it was our lucky day last week, we stopped by a Target in Tulsa and they were on sale for $35 each! (They were destined to be ours because the OKC Target they are still $50?!) Finally I got to say good bye to the Ikea dorm lamps and got adult lamps, which I love!

Serious business

"Mom-bo" - the word we hear ALL day for ALL things existent. Ben has decided everything needs to be lawn-mowed. He is obsessed with that word. And when our neighbors mow, he has like lawn mower sensors and runs to the front window to watch. The kid LOVES lawn mowers :)

How old are you? ONE.... almost TWO!! Shoulder pads much? Its the angle, I swear he doesn't have on shoulder pads, nor does he have Hulk Hogan size upper body.

Ben has been cracking us up. For now that terrible two thing (which was really 1 1/2 yr thing) has totally disappeared (knock on wood) and he knows his limits. "Do you need to go to your room" works like a charm whenever he starts to whine or get mad. I love it!! I say it and he immediately flips back on the happy switch, all smiles and giggles. He has become our frequent bed snuggler in the middle of the night, a great lil helper and is getting too smart for his own good - I am shocked how much my boy has developed in the past couple months. He went from practically no words to bam saying everything... Reciting the entire alphabet (except W)...counting 1-10.... Harvard, Yale... nnaahhh OSU watch out!
