the drawer…

jasper has gotten better about keeping barrettes and ponytails in her hair – still not great but much better…however, now once she gets tired of them being in her hair, she just goes and puts them up herself!  the drawer where i keep her hair stuff opens up a bit even with one of those child safety locks and so she drops her barrette in the little crack and goes about her business! 

i much prefer this to her old habit of eating her barrettes or leaving them throughout the house for me to hunt for one by one…nope, i don’t miss that at all!

and if i notice her barrette missing, all i have to do is ask her where her barrette is and she will go running to the drawer, open it and peer in…and lo and behold, when i peek in for myself, there lies the barrette pretty as you please – right where it belongs!  holy cow, she is good!

here she is putting her headband back in the drawer – one cute step at a time!

all susan’s fault…really!

so susan and louis at sweetpeahyams sent pictures of their nursery room (very cute by the way) and it inspired me to add some more stuffage to jasper lilith’s room!  jon was not happy about this as he tends to be very minimal about what goes into a room but i perservered (or would that be “pestered”?) and he eventually got on board and helped me out 🙂

this was the perfect time to do it because jon’s honda is in the shop for failed inspection reasons so he has been driving my truck – this means that i have been without a vehicle or escape from the house/backyard for a couple of days now…yes, i am starting to get stir crazy – we have a bunch of nice parks around us but guess what?  they only seem close when you drive there!  there is one (read:  one) park that is close enough to walk to that also has sidewalks (sidewalks:  an important, nay, necessary feature when you have a stroller!) all the way there and it doesn’t have a large grassy place that jasper can run around in!  it isn’t really a park, more of a boat launch so it is mostly parking lot 😦

i miss my truck…

so messing around with jasper’s room has given me plenty to do while stuck at home…what to do today?  we might try some toddler finger painting…hmm…

well, back to jasper’s room:  my next thing will be to cover (pale lavendar?) that horrible recliner that is way too useful and comfortable to get rid of but that will be a project in need of a sewing machine and as everyone knows, well, sewing machines and i are not on a first name basis!  so i am avoiding thinking about that recliner for now…

so in deference to jon’s wishes, i didn’t add much (still plenty of blue wall, honey) but let’s see if you can figure out what i did do!

i didn’t put those two stuffed animals down on the bottom shelf – jasper did!  i had left it empty knowing that whatever i put there would be dragged out all the time anyway but she decided that the giraffe and the dragon were supposed to be there…so now they are 🙂
