The Green Dresser

I was on a photo walk with a friend this last summer and stumbled upon this!!! An affordable dresser. I promptly went home, had Dorian take a look at in and put in on layaway (my newest favorite thing because I only paid $15 at a time and it never seemed like I actually paid for it!!)

When we got it home we started priming it. Then Dorian had this crazy idea to maybe paint it fire-engine red!??! He was delirious obviously!! (which is so weird for him, because he usually has a great vision of things). We were thinking about going black for a while until I stumbled upon a friends blog that completely inspired me!!

This is what we finally decided on and we LOVE it!! Joni was such a help with decorating the top and was so nice to buy us the lamp as a wonderful and perfect gift for our new found love! :o)
This was the perfect piece for this spot in our house. We couldn't be more thrilled!

One small step.....

Tessa has been taking her first steps this week. It's been fun to watch her grow and learn new things. Plus, she thinks she's pretty cool stuff when she's doing it. But, with all good things there's another side too. It makes me want to cry! She's growing WAY too fast, and sometimes I just want to be snuggling my little newborn again.
Enjoy the video that we captured yesterday (4.8.10)
Oh, and don't mind the fact that she isn't wearing any pants. She decided to puke on my floor and then crawl right through it (and play in it a little too). LOVE-LY!

When Granny and Papa came (beginning of March)

For some reason, every time Dorian's parents come to visit I hardly ever pull the camera out. I think it has something to do with the fact the the trips are usually quick and somewhat action packed, and I just try to enjoy and soak in every second with them. I don't like to worry about getting pictures, but I do need to be a little better about it!

Here is Tessa snuggling with her papa

And her are the boys doing tricks with Papa. That papa sure is a lot of fun!!
