I guess I should start this out saying "knock on wood".. Kate has seriously turned a corner this week and has been dream baby. We are in Heaven! We started doing an earlier bedtime routine and it seems to be working well! She is sleeping 9+ hours a night and has been doing this for 4 weeks now. I don't know what to do with myself! Sleep is amazing and I am so happy to have it back! She is great throughout the day and smiles and coos. Today I braved Brea mall with her, our first solo mall experience and she was perfect! 2 hours in Nordstrom and not a peep. She's a mini Nordstrom shopper in training. We are enjoying each day with our precious Kate and thank Jesus all day long for this sweet blessing. I'm taking her in to see the doctor on Thursday to get her wound checked. It's still infected and is breaking our hearts. I am learning patience through this and trusting in the Lord with all of my heart. We know that He is going to heal her completely in His timing. We're thankful that she has a good attitude through all of this. She is quite hilarious actually. A true drama queen already doing fake sneezes and coughs. Hard not to laugh. Love love love her!

I dusted her off and went to town with chalk paint. Then I got rid of the old dark rug and started changing out our throw pillows. Then it was onto the fireplace. Before Chris took out part of the wood floor to extend the floor of the tiny fireplace. We also cleaned out the fireplace and sprayed it with cream paint that can withstand 1,200 degree temperatures. And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass fr
