DIY Wall Mount Coat Rack

I haven't posted a DIY project in a long time and this one is super simple. I used leftover wood (2x4)  from our fence project cut at 30 inches, used stain I already had (Color: Special Walnut), and purchased the hooks from Home Depot. This project cost $15 (5 hooks at $2.98 a piece)

{tip: use 3 screws to secure the 2x4 to the wall and cover up the screws with the hooks}

And there you go, a simple and practical project.

10 months


Size: She's finishing out her last size 3 diapers and then we will be on to size 4! Wearing mostly 12 and 18 month clothing. Feet are still tiny but she can wear 6-12 months or size 2.

Eyes: Blue as ever, it's the first thing strangers notice about her.

Hair: Blonde and wispy.

Sleeping: Two naps a day. 7:30 bedtime and wakes up at 6/6:30 for a bottle and then goes back until 8 or after. Mama appreciates that :) Still sleeps in a sleep sack with her blanket by her face and lamb.

Eating: This kid eats anything we put in front of her: black beans, tomatoes, fish, and asparagus to name a few "odd" foods! Her favorite lunch is: Boars Head turkey lunch meat, avocado, and cheese. For dinner she eats what we eat. Some other favorites include: cucumbers, spaghetti, yogurt, melon, and puffs. We hope your love of food stays!

-Waves bye-bye
-Gives open mouth kisses on command
-Walking around furniture
-Drinks from a straw and finally a sippy cup!
-Signs for more
-Spent another week on Tangier
-You went to your 1st wedding :)
-No new teeth this month 

Loves: FOOD, bath time and water, strolling, clapping her hands, feeding herself, being out and about, nap time, playing with her toys and loves books!  

Hates: Cleaning her face and hands after she eats, juice, laying her down on the changing table to change a diaper or to get dressed, when I put her hair into a ponytail -- she would rather have a headband on. When it's after 7:30 p.m. and it's time for bed (sometimes we push it if we are out). 

-No new words this month
-Still saying Mama, Dada, ninny, hey, and no no

Birthday planning is underway!

Minnie Mouse

Joseph's mom and dad went to Disney World in February and brought back this adorable dress and Minnie ears. We had a little photo shoot to remember this cute outfit. I want to add that capturing these pictures is getting harder and harder but somehow we pull it off. 

I can't handle her thighs :)

The sunglasses kill me and they open up hahaha. I keep looking at this pic laughing and think, this is what she would look like if she wore little glasses.

A 7 week and almost 10 month Minnie.

4th of July

The fourth is one of my favorite holidays. I love what it is, the yummy food, the beach, the water, the fireworks, everything! This holiday was the last "first" for Harlow (I don't count labor day) and it was bittersweet but exciting at the same time. Harlow is getting older and she will develop her own love of holidays. Here's some pictures from our 4th.

Uncle J and Lolo in their matching star shorts :)

Hope everyone had a great 4th!
