What's been up

So the reason why we've been such slackers in the bloggity blog world is because I decided to take on a project. It involved transforming our kitchen table. I've been surfing some do it yourself blogs and I snagged the idea of painting our table and chairs. What color? you might ask, DIFFERENT colors. I will say! So Nathan and I sanded down the chairs and table, primed and spray painted them. It was a lot of fun. Minus the sanding part. Not my favorite thing to do. Piece by piece it started coming together. It took us about 2 weeks because we could really only work on it when Amelia was napping or after she went to bed. It sure was fun working side by side. Hope you guys wanted to see photos because here they are:
So thats what Nathan and I have been up to, I know you probably want to know what's new with Amelia. Amelia is almost 11 months old and she keeps us on our toes! She's cruising along with her push along toy. And she's even had some sweets. GASP! we gave her a taste of my birthday cake, SHE LOVED IT (now we have high expectations for her smash cake), she had a mini oreo, and part of a cupcake (I had to share my love of Sweet Tooth Fairy, if you haven't been GO!). Nathan has also taught her how to go down the stairs and give high five's. I can't believe she's almost one.

Amelia loves to read books. Amelia loves to pull the books off the shelf. I pick up said books many times a day. (usually they are all on the floor unlike this pile)
Amelia really likes to play with wipes. She likes to wipe things. Carpet included. Pretty sure she picked this habit up from me. But I don't wipe the carpet.
After the mini Oreo.
Going down the stairs.
