Catch Up

I have got so much to share here.  Over the next few weeks, I'll try to write up posts about the things we've been up to, like:
  • Building a bench
  • Staining said bench
  • Cleaning out our garage
  • Painting our garage
  • (Barely) relocating our washer/dryer
  • Buying Craigslist chairs
  • Refinishing Craigslist chairs
  • Reorienting our office
  • Building/Painting a desk
  • Rearranging the Nursery
  • Black Friday deals 
  • Repairing our mailbox (more fun than it sounds)
and so very much more.  I've been so busy DOING all this stuff I haven't had time to write about it!

I'll be back later with the first of many catch-up posts.  But for now, here's an update for our girl.  She is getting so big...seventeen months has flown by!  Her new favorite thing is climbing.  She gets in her high chair by herself, goes right to the top of any play area, almost climbs on our bed, and she surprised me yesterday at the park by doing pretty well (considering limited wingspan) with the rock wall!  She says "peese" and "tankyu" for pretty much everything, and stopped using all her baby signs except "all done", which she does throughout every meal (it can be confusing).  I love that she gets so excited now when Daddy gets home.  He was able to take off all of last week for Thanksgiving.  Before that nine days off, she had become a little indifferent to him.  Now she is a TOTAL Daddy's girl.

And, without further ado, the pictures!
 Happy Thursday!
