I have been asked by 2 friends to help with their baby nursery designs this week. I have painted at a friends house in her entryway. I have painted my own baby's room and am helping make decisions on Amy's. The paint ideas are flying all over the place! It's been so long since I was able to paint that I am overloaded with things I want to do! I've been playing with some ideas to change up my bedroom and living room, but haven't decided for sure what I want. I was scouring the internet today and found some things I really want to play with! Here's the best of what I looked at.

This one was done with paper in a guest room, but I like the idea of doing it with paint. Maybe in one color but different values on an accent wall. It could be VERY cool!

This diamond design was acutally on Home Depot's site. I love the harlequin idea and being in a different color than black and white makes it super cool.

This idea was done by painting over labels cut to look like silhouettes. I love the idea of a gridded wall, but this was an interesting take on the same idea. Would be cute in a kids room with bright colors and cars, trains and boats instead of people.

And these are all the chalkboard paint ideas! A globe??? Could be really cool in my art room! And I am dying to make these calendars! They are really sleek and different! I dont have a pic of it, but I also have an old door I am painting in chalkboard paint to put in the entry with colored chalks. That way visitors can write a message!

Where do I start?? I am playing with paint we still have right now, before I buy some new colors. I am working on wide stripes in our bedroom and thinking through some ideas for the living room. hmmmmm....

My days are running together

How does time go so quickly? My boy is almost 3 months old and my days are all one big blur now! We are having lots of fun rolling over, razzing, standing with some help, laughing and smiling at Momma and sitting in our bumbo seat.
Zeke's favorite toy is Mr.Monkey on his play mat. He grabs his tail and swings him around and hugs him. he also like to hug and chew on his handmade burpcloths to soothe himself. He's become very drooly and makes us wonder if he's gonna be an early teether. We are working on giving him a feeding on a bottle every day to prepare for when Momma goes back to work, but we are failing miserabley.
We've started running at night and take Zeke in our new jogging stroller. We all 3 love it! It plays music and has great shocks, so Zeke isn't bouncing out all the time. Zeke's a real trouper and goes to parties, restaraunts and shopping with Momma and Daddy all the time. He loves being passed around and admired by everyone and only cries when he's really tired or hungry.
We are having so much fun watching him develop his personality and I know Daddy is ready for him to be big enough to really play with. We are enjoying nights of good sleep since he began sleeping through the night (at 2 months people...that ROCKS!) He's just a great baby and keeps us busy but happy every day!
