Green day!

Is it really already the end of May? How did that happen? So I guess today's the last day to get in all of the Project Spectrum Green shots in. So here we go...


Julian got to experience grass for the first time on the weekend at his grandparents' house. It was so cute. He kept trying to pull out individual blades of grass. Of course he had never sat in grass before because our own house sits in a sandbox! So imagine our delight on Monday morning when our landscaper showed up to lay the grass. It's so exciting!!! Here's what our front yard looks like now...

And part of the back:


Any thoughts on what this is?


It's a leaf canopy above Julian's crib ($10 each at Ikea).

I thought I'd show you Julian's nursery since it is green. The colour is called "limelight" from Behr and we all love it. It is very light but has and enveloping presence in there especially in the morning glow.


Here is a picture of Julian's future big boy bed. It is actually Stephen's childhood bed so it has an extra sentimental quality to it. You might recognise the quilt as the background for all my FO pictures. Like I said, the light is amazing in there ;0)


And for the grand finale: the official colour of the month book shot:


Goodbye green. Hello blue...

  5. That picture is adorable! I love watching children explore things for the very first time. It is an amazing thing. Your lawn looks great! Hooray for grass! Julian's room is gorgeous. Wanna come and do Lily's room for me? I love Behr paints, they are awesome. :)

  9. Julian looks so cute playing in the grass. Isnt it great how good your garden looks when there is actually green in it. We too only have grass in the front, the backyard is not done yet so is mud and weeds. Ugh. I love Julian's bedroom too. So cute.

  10. I remember when my nephew (he'll be 3 in a few days) experienced grass for the first time. We tried to put him down so he'd stand in it...he apparently didn't like the feel because he would raise his little legs up so that we couldn't get him to stand. He'll go in it now...unlike me who won't walk barefoot in grass...eewww, there are bugs and stuff in there!
