Studio/office space

My studio/office space is coming along.  I have another bookcase coming on Wednesday and I am in the process of getting a lateral bookcase to replace the TV stand.  I also need a real chair and not the camp chair I am using now.

I can't wait until I can get some of my prints on the wall!  :)

I have been trying to video Niko saying his first two syllable word - cookie.  He says it all the time... just not when the camera is around.

Daddy cooking?!?!

Wow... yea.  Neil cut up all the vegetables for tonight's beef stew.  Amazing!!   I am showing him that even he can cook in a crock pot.

This is probably a bad idea.. but he loves being able to see what I'm doing in the kitchen.  I think I'll look into one of those ladder/platform kitchen helper thingies for toddlers.

Valentine flowers

Niko and Neil sent me some Valentine's Day flowers.

Party plates

Someone found out where the party plates were hidden.  Our living room has a wet bar (I have no idea why... the real sink is 10 steps away) but we use it to hold all the party plates and board games.  Someone love playing with the Double Dragon plates.

Zona Rosa

One of the boys at daycare was sick so we kept Niko home yesterday.  Neil took the morning shift and I took the afternoon.  I took Niko to the Zona Rosa indoor playground.  He had fun playing with the equipment.  I think we will start to take him up here more often.  He seems to have inherited his dad's personality and doesn't really like being in a crowd of new kids.  Perhaps more play dates will help that.

New Shoes

New Bumblebee shoes!  Niko's old shoes were getting pretty tight.  He's now in size 6 and I don't think these shoes will last very long either....

New curtains

I couldn't stand having naked windows any longer.  We put these up right before our Super Bowl party.  I got everything on clearance at Target.  I may replace the red panels with the copper panels I really wanted later.  The red ones were too cheap to pass up!

Can't quite make it...

This is the way Niko looks every night when we get home.  Some nights he makes it all the way to the highway... some nights he doesn't.  The sandman wins every time.

What's for dinner?

Niko loves going through my cookbooks.  Now if I could only get him to make me something out of one of them!
