Going "Wild"

*Since we found out the baby was a GIRL my mind hasn't stopped. (not that it really ever does but...) I am constantly planning the nursery in my head. It's something to keep my mind from wandering else where! Mark gave me the "go ahead" to do whatever. LOL! I think I have mentioned before about the canvases my sister-in-law painted a few months ago. She painted them with no intention of them going in a baby's room but we love them! Now that we know it's a girl we are going to add a few extra to make it a little girly...*insert squeal here* As I started looking around at different ideas (thanks Pinterest) I fell in love with animal prints. I am pretty sure I am not going to have trouble finding any right now as it seems everywhere I turn there are animal prints. I am not usually one to go with something that is already everywhere but I have a few ideas up my sleeve to make it extra special! I can't wait....I want craft, craft, craft. AHHH!!!

*On another note Wyatt has been so sweet lately. He is growing so fast, ya...blah blah I know...but really. He is all about kisses and hugs. He loves playing with his cousins too. The other day they were over hanging out and Wyatt and Cruz were playing together...like really together. They were laughing, running, chasing, and "talking" together. It was precious to see. Shelly and I did mention how crazy it will be when they can really talk back and forth, we are gonna be in for it for sure! I can already see Wyatt and Cruz being crazy boys while Ariel holds our little "ladybug" so quietly. (Yes, ladybug...that's what we are calling her. Thanks Eesie!) Wyatt has also been eating so much better lately. I could actually just say he has actually been eating. Ha! We reverted back to the highchair and it seems to be working! It keeps him contained and focused on the task at hand. LOL! Saturday morning he ate 36 blueberries and half and egg...that is A LOT for him!!! Maybe at his 18 month appointment he will break 25 lbs!?!!?!? We took Wyatt to Chuck E Cheese last weekend. It was overload...in a good way. He wanted to do all the "big kid" stuff and he even ate an entire piece of pizza! He or his competitive daddy won 200 tickets. You know what that bought him? 4 stickers, a whistle, and a plastic lizard...prizes are terrible these days! I am pretty sure when I was little 200 tickets could get you a b-day party at Chuck E Cheese or something. HA!!!!

*So I have talked about ladybug and Wyatt now...onto to Christmas. When I haven't been thinking nursery I have been planning and decorating my house for Christmas, in my head of course. I am a HUGE lover of Christmas but I just CAN'T bring myself to decorate until after Thanksgiving. Pretty sure Mark would say Thanksgiving is is favorite holiday so I don't think I could ever do that to him. Plus I have such great fall/Thanksgiving decor I am not ready to take it down. Anyway...back to decorations. Since I watch a little girl at my house 3 days a week and since I have a Tasmanian devil for a toddler I am going to have to approach this a little different than my past years as a homeowner. I have decided my "colors" to be will be red and white with a touch of silver and gold. Original I know. IKEA brought out their Christmas last time I was there...you bet I snatched a few items. It was really neat to see some different items I hadn't seen before. IKEA is always so cleaver. ;) We go back this Saturday...already so hopefully they have more stuff!
