Wow, what a week filled with snow, ice, and family time. We loved that we were "snowed in" for a few days and had a great time trying to keep a 2 year old busy. We went sledding with our neighbors on the first day of the big snow and had a good time. We also got paint out and let Haven do her new favorite thing over and over, painting her hands.
I nested all week and got the house rearranged and a little closer to being ready for Jovie and all her baby stuff. Haven has really been caring for her teddy bears, babies, and Jovie's teddy bear. It is so sweet to watch her whisper to them and feed them. I think she is going to be such a good big sister. Jeremy took some cute pictures with her favorites this morning.
Jeremy played yesterday at The Great Wolf Lodge for a youth weekend and had a good time. We went to visit him. Haven loved the "wolfies." She didn't want to leave them. Here is a picture of our first babies. Yes, they are extremely precious and shiny.

Haven moved upstairs last weekend into her new room. She loves her room and we are so glad. We have a cute white toddler bed that will move in there as soon as she(we) is ready. We noticed that lots of her existing stuff had polka dots, so we decided that should be the theme for now. I free handed 5 different colors of polka dots around the room and they turned out pretty cute. The original plan was to paint the whole room the lightest green color, but once I put the colors on the wall the existing beige didn't look so bad. Our inspiration pieces were her growth chart that we brought up from the nursery and the Eric Carle quilt my mom made for Haven. We added white blinds, book shelves, painted the drawers and toy box we already had, and added some accents. The chalkboard was in my room when I was little. The drawers(cabinet thingy) is actually from my great grandparent's house. Here is a picture of my great-grandpaw McCall sitting beside the piece in the 50s. I had it in my room growing up for a while.
The frame with hairbows came from my grandparent's house and my mom had it for years. I took a few years ago and I think it finally found the perfect spot in Haven's room for her bows and pins from our travel. We have bought the pins(buttons) or have been given them as we have traveled with her over the past 2 years. She has one from the Cabot cheese factory and even Yellowstone. I can't wait to see how her collection of 10 or so now will grow over the years.

Haven started sleeping in her new room Friday night. Here is a sneak peak of the room and her pitiful face when she woke up. I will post more pictures of her room later. We decided to borrow our neighbors crib for a while because I just wasn't ready to put her upstairs in the toddler bed. She does great in a crib and we weren't interested in messing that up. Yay for Haven!
