Catch up

I know it's been a while since I've posted anything, so here goes.
Baluga eye is healed, although there is a red mark still there that will hopefully fade. She's been getting into a dress craze, so I decided to make her a few dresses (there is one dress that is purple with flowers I haven't gotten a picture of) that only cost me a couple bucks to make and required very little sewing and no pattern.

She also recently had her first hair cut ever, by me, which I don't think I'll ever do again and just leave to professionals. She got a couple inches cut off

We've also made some pretty big purchases lately. We bought a new kitchen table, since we were quickly outgrowing the one we got when we first got married. A tiny 4 chair set. We found this one and loved it. It's counter height and very dark wood, it almost looks black, but you can see some red in it if the light is just right. It has a leaf that fold into the table, so when it's open it's a big square and can fit 8 people.

Which then led to our next purchase. We didn't want the kids playing with playdough and other things (especially since it's so high and I didn't want to worry about them falling off the chairs and getting hurt) on this and wanted something they could play on and eat on when we had people over.

Now for the last pictures and last purchase for now. We got Baluga a new bed. With the baby on the way it needed to happen sooner than later. She was sleeping in the crib which we converted to a toddler bed, but wanted to get her a bed before the baby came so hopefully she would be adjusted to her new bed. The head board and foot board look the same, except of the course the foot board is smaller.

She loves her new big girl bed and has been sleeping well in it, thank goodness.
Now for the last little bit of news. We are looking for a house, which is exciting and a little stressful. I feel like I should clean and dejunk now. Then part of me thinks what's the point when we'll have to go through everything when we move. Just thinking about it makes me more tired than I already am. So there's what's going on with us lately.

Where do you even find the time to sew dresses? I'm impressed. They turned out cute! I just bought alexa a few like that. Love the table, My only concern is the fabric on the chairs, we have fabric on our chairs and let me just say never again. Way to hard to keep clean with little ones. The bed is way cute. I'm gald she is sleeping well. And hope you guys can find a house that you like and get moved before you you get to close to D-day. Maybe we will send in the troops to help you move. Cause really you should'nt be lifting anything! Congrats and good luck!!!

Here's a little trick I learned from my old neighbors. When they got a new table and chairs, she bought some plastic vinyl at walmart. They have all different thickness, the one I got is pretty thin and was under $1.00 a yard. And I covered all of my chairs, so that way they stay nice and I can just wipe them off. Otherwise I probably would have never thought of getting cushioned chairs.

The dresses are so cute!!! I don't know how you have the time to sew them. I know my kids wouldn't let me. They would be way to interested in it!
