The only thing left to do is find a way to cleverly hide all the cords hanging down from the computer. And I also want to do something fun to the new lamp that's sitting on the desk. I'm hoping that will be an April Project.
The cushion was the last part to be completed. It's just a piece of plywood with a foam pad glued on. Then I stapled batting around it to soften all the edges. Finally, I stapled the pink fabric on top. The great thing about this is, when I redo Leah's room in the future, I just rip out the staples that hold the fabric on and put new fabric in its place. The trim around the top comes up to form a bit of a lip to keep the board from sliding off the bench.
Just a funny thing about the fabric: I tried picking something green and white with a bit of a fun pattern, but Leah didn't like what I was choosing. We finally agreed on this pink, which was great because it was really cheap. As we were buying it she said to me, "Mommy, I don't like pink, but I really like the pattern on this fabric." She's funny.
I do have to add that my brother Mike helped me a ton with this project. So I guess it could be considered as his February project too.
They made Leah's slippers do a little workout.
They got the stuffed animals in trouble by letting them play video games and watch TV. That's not allowed on Saturdays unless chores are done first. I don't think they did their chores.
They did a bit of redecorating. I don't know why they think it's so funny to put shoes on the doorknobs!
They did help out our 100th day friend by helping him find the bathroom.

In my post about being pregnant, I said that we were going to have a boy. That's what I thought. I've always just "known" what we were having and I was always right. Well, I messed up this time. We are not having a boy. We are having a girl. Here's the proof: (I hope it's not too small to see)
I had pretty much told everyone that we were having a boy. Now I have to tell everyone that we're having a girl. We were very surprised, but happy and excited with the news, well, at least most of us were. Mike and I, of course, are thrilled. Leah is so excited that she finally gets to share a room with someone (I wonder how long that will last). The boys however, were not so thrilled. Eli said, "AWWW, boo!" And we can't even bring it up around Noah. He just shouts, "NO! It's a boy baby!!" They'll come around eventually I'm sure, once they see how cute she is.
