Even though there is another dusting of snow this morning, we have definitely been seeing signs of spring. Here are the kids enjoying a sunny afternoon last week...
It was a busy weekend of renovations. Our original plan was to complete the painting on Saturday and leave the floor for another weekend, but with the help of Erik's family the paint job was done in no time and we were inspired to finish it off with the laminate. We took a quick trip to IKEA on Saturday night to pick up the flooring in Erik's suburban and the boys are laying the last of it this morning. It looks great. Before and after pictures are yet to come since our house is still a disaster zone but here's a little preview: Erik laying the first piece of laminate and then the finished living room:
The toughest part was keeping Micah occupied. Here he is eating his Sunday morning breakfast in the kitchen - literally.
And some good news to report on the sleeping front. I've had Keziah on her 4-hour daytime routine for a week now and I've noticed a definite difference in her nighttime sleep. Last night she woke up once about 3 hours after she had gone down, but she took her soother and fell back to sleep for several more hours! So, I haven't been reduced to trying the "wake her up" technique and I'm praying that I won't have to :)
Micah is still a bit of a challenge - we've gone from having a toddler who begs to go to sleep to having one that refuses it. So, it's a bit of a mind shift but hopefully soon we'll have this sleeping thing figured out.
