Is all over the place. I woke up one morning he was standing in his crib and he has been trying to walk ever since.
Has broken a lamp, his humidifier, accidentally tried dog food and ripped his baby monitor off the wall.
Still hates being strapped into anything, making car rides interesting.
7 teeth and more coming in.
Oh and he is huge. Literally, 23 lbs and 30 inches at his appointment.
Parenting in a nutshell:
Somehow I have managed to accomplish everything and nothing by 8am each morning.
Nothing like getting a blizzard, dressing your baby up and hope that he will love snow. It was anti-climatic and ended in 3 minutes after 20 minutes of getting ready.
Again, do not understand that when my diet consists of string cheese and cheerios, why I am not super skinny.
Have found myself driving extra mileage when Grady does fall asleep in the car. Normally results in a fountain soda drive thru for me.

In other randomness, I have just been running around trying to grab as much stuff for Lucketts as possible. The weather has put a damper on everyone. I have managed to snag a few cute things here and there:

I am normally not a fixer upper or one to like things beat up, but occasionally there's something broken that just need a little fixin. The other day there was a huge leather chair just sitting there. It was in great shape, but one of the feet needed to be screwed in. He was still only $35. A chair that a one point cost at least $1500. I immediately texted everyone I knew to see who wanted the awesome score:
I have an over-organization problem. My friends make fun of me. I also have a dish fetish. So seeing bowls in a fridge was too much fun for me. Do not judge, anyone that likes home decor has bought fruit to put in a bowl at least once. Use these pretty images to go and spruce up your fridge:
Last year I had an image in my head for our narrow porch to make it cozy. The image did not turn out how I had planned. The process started and I basically ended up with a lot of rattan in different shades from Craigslist. I loathe painting, but it is time to face the music. I am thinking about using my good friend Chocolate Froth by Behr:
