I got lots of questions about the flooring in our house. The downstairs is all stained concrete. No tile, no carpet, wall to wall concrete. We love it. It's so easy to maintain. Not real great with babies, but we're managing. The upstairs is all Mountain Grass. It's a sisal type carpet and it's eco-friendly. Looks like this:
We're all about being green! I also got several questions about Hudson's paint color in his room. I don't remember the exact color, but it's chocolate brown (no VOC). We painted stripes (well, WE didn't but the painter did) using a flat paint and a satin paint. It gives off the impression that the browns are different colors, but they really aren't. Just different textures of paint. I guess you could even go with a gloss paint to make the stripes stand out more. We wanted a subtle look though. It's my favorite room in the house!!
And yes - Hudson's room is HUGE. We were originally going to use it as a guest room, but decided at the last minute that his nursery would work better in that room because it's the most quiet. Away from our deck and our rowdy friends that we love having over. :)
Last night, we went to an Open House for some of our friends new kettlebells studio. They're both certified instructors and the studio looked great! There were lots of kids and Hudson had a ball playing with everyone.
He loved this hoola hoop though he wasn't sure how to use it.
He wasn't so sure about the ropes
Sweet Lana giving a big CHEEESE!!
Hudson' favorite by far was this tunnel that attached to a tent. He entertained himself for at least 30 minutes. We'll be purchasing one of these for the house.
Last on my list is sweet pea's birthday. I cannot believe he's turning ONE!!! It seems like just yesterday, he looked like this:
We are in full party planning mode at our house. No, not really. We're keeping it pretty simple. How much will he really remember??? Probably nothing! I ordered some cute stickers with his name printed on them for the goodie bags yesterday. I was thinking I'd put bubbles or play-doh or silly putty in the bags. Any ideas from you Moms?
