Ryland requested that I take a nap with him today. When I tucked him in, he patted on the bed and said momma. I couldn't refuse, so I cuddled up beside my bubby. He drifted off super fast, and I caught myself just watching him sleep. He looked like a peaceful little old man in his button up shirt that he refused to change out of.
Many thoughts of how quickly time has flown by since he was born started coming to mind. I enjoy seeing him grow and learn new things every day, and I just can't imagine my life without him. I feel so blessed and lucky to be his mom, and I look forward to every moment in the future. It is so funny how these special moments sneak up on me.

After our snack, we measured the back of the house where we are replacing the tile. Ryland was really interested in holding the tape measure for me and helping me take accurate measurements. It is cute how helpful he wants to be.

We painted the final coat of paint on all of the new trim, doors, and walls in the nursery. The closet and entry doors, trim, and casing took forever the prime and paint. I know Emily and I painted the dang doors 3 or 4 times before they finally looked right. It made such a huge difference and really made the room come together so we could place furniture.
The guys worked on the stair trim for a while, and in the end John Chris and I have decided that we want to redo the stairs and go ahead and add the iron balusters. John Chris saw a photo of the Kardashian Christmas card with the exact balusters and stained tread color that we That messy project has been put on the hold list until the baby arrives, and we get started again.
One project we weren't expecting to work on was the speakers on the back patio. When we moved in, there was one speaker mounted and another mounting bracket with exposed wires. Apparently one had been taken down or knocked down, and we found it sitting outside on the patio. We had assumed that the sound control knob that is by our master bedroom door operated the speakers, but we had attempted connecting our sound system without success. After a little discussion and attic exploration, the guys figured out how to correct the wiring connection. I was so excited to hear music outside! All the wiring was good and both speakers worked as well! I have no idea what the heck went on at this house prior to our purchase, but it seems as if the previous owner and her kids just tore it up. The speakers are really nice and the sound is excellent. I can't wait to hang out in the pool this summer and listen to some jams.

This was one project that we were not excited to do due to the high climbing. The roof pitch over the family room is steep, and there is one pipe on that side that had to be sealed.
The project is done, and no one was hurt. We can check this off the list.

After I wiped the blood off, I could see the gash and the knot. Poor little man. I sat in the backseat with him for a while debating if I needed to take him to the doctor or not. After talking to my mom and John Chris, I decided to take him home. I was sure to keep him awake for a few hours before nap. Dr. Momma put some ointment and a Spongebob bandage on the ouchy to help make it all better.
