New house space: The Playroom

Let's see, we closed on February 12th.... moved in on February 22nd... I finished the playroom on May 14th. And by finished, I mean, unpacked a few more boxes, moved some garage sale boxes and organized a little.

Y'all, it's hard to do anything at all with these precious children. But on this particular day, Liam took a 2 hour nap in the morning, and a 2 hour nap while Cohen napped! Overlapping naps in our home are referred to as "golden hours". Rare, precious occurrences that happen once in a blue moon.

Alas, here it is. A very important room in our home. The Playroom. Right off of the kitchen, adjacent to the living room. Windows surrounding and glorious sunlight 99% of the day. So, so thankful this house had a space we could use as a playroom. With two little boys, we need a space to keep our most used toys. A spot to sit at a kid-sized table and color or do school work. A place to lay in a sunny spot on the floor and read a book together. A place where innumerable train tracks will be set up and played on.

From standing almost in the living room (dining table there on left, kitchen behind and to left).

I'd love to put some cute classic toys up on the white shelves, but for now, it's flowers. :) And pictures. But that would require printing. Or maybe some custom Cohen art!

There's Liam's favorite spot in the house... his jumper. He can jump in there non-stop for about an hour before he complains!

I'm so happy with the way it turned out. I know it won't always stay clean and organized like this.. but there have been gentle threats made to Cohen. ;)

Eventually I think we'll paint the walls and do all the trim white, as opposed to the natural wood color.

We've already been enjoying the room.

Sometimes we go pants-less in the mornings. So, what? 

Can I just squeeze and eat those fingers???? Gaaaaahhhh!!!

Oh, hai mom. 

Steals brother's puzzle pieces to leave his signature on them. ;)

We can eat breakfast while working logistical puzzles.

Want some apple? 

Liam is mesmerized by Cohen, all day. 


Selfie with Liam!

I can't stop laughing at this picture. Can't stop. Poor Liam's face! And Cohen doing the Miley tongue all the time now. Sweet babes. 

So there ya go! One room in our house. More to come, eventually... :)
