Open Mouth...Insert Foot & A New Area Rug

The Very Hungry Caterpillar's foot that is!

Seems this little guy can't get enough things in his mouth to help alleviate the pain of teething!  (He's gotten his two bottom teeth to cut through!)

In addition to teething, this little guy has done a lot of laying around today.  We all have!

You see, mama got a new rug!

Benjamin doing "the worm".
And no shoes allowed!  My husband thinks I'm insane for purchasing a winter white rug!

My living room transformation is coming along nicely!  Next on the agenda are end tables so that my guests actually have a place to put their drink.  Probably will not do a coffee table again.  (Our current one is in the basement kid zone.)  While the storage was nice, the square footage of this room is small and the table in the middle takes up too much room...not enough room left over for playing on the carpet!  Or taking a nap.

I know you want to!

And that big empty space on the blue wall.  Well, I've got big plans for that space.  Just has to wait on my SAHM budget!

I promise to post the total before and after pics soon!


  1. Oh my goodness, look at those beautiful eyes! That rug is awesome too!

  2. He's growing so fast!
    I love that rug...looks like a great place to lay down!

  3. I'll be over soon for naptime!
    Looks great.


  4. oh the teething days!! love the photo with his hand in his mouth. brings back memories for me. and a beautiful rug!

  5. A nice family portrait would look nice on that empty blue wall. LOL!
