Eli loves to "help" with the laundry. He hasn't quite figured out the order of things yet. Sometimes things to into the washer from the dryer, or straight from the hamper into the dryer. When he's extra "helpful" he'll get Ben's socks out of the drawers and try to put them in the washer, dryer or hamper! I guess it doesn't make much sense to him, he knows we take things out of some places and put them into others. Thank goodness he can't turn the knobs yet.

I bought this cute little arm chair at Goodwill last week. It was covered with the ugliest fabric ever, and had a bunch of holes on the arms. I figured since I've never re-upholstered anything before, I should give it a shot. I love the way it came out, and Eli loves to "lounge" in it. He sits in it so much we think he's always wanted to sit down, but just didn't have a chair his size.
Like most projects I've attempted over the years (stripping paint, refinishing furniture, sewing various projects) I'm pretty satisfied with the result, but have no interest in ever attempting upholstery again.

We have a set of foam letters for the bath. I am amazed every time we play with them of how perfectly the name Elijah works with them. Not only does Elijah not have any repeat letters (the set has only 1 of each letter), but we don't repeat any colors. To top it off the colors are almost in order backwards: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Purple and Blue.
Heavy thinking is going on during bath time supervision at our house.
Next to come: fixing the national deficit.
