Colby and his suitcase

This kid. He's completely crazy.  Who knew a suitcase would entertain him for DAYS?!? He has always loved playing with ours, but they were so big to push around that he would always need help.  Well finally, i came up with the bright idea to get him his OWN small suitcase.  I tell ya what, I'm pretty sure he thinks i'm #1 mom.  This thing works great to entertain him AND to bribe him :) haha.  He didn't even ask me to go in the backyard yesterday (the 100 degrees may not bother him, but it bothers me a great deal. so whenever we get to stay inside i'm happy). I thought this video was just so great (ignore the mess). Colby took this suitcase everywhere, he sat with it on the couch and would even sit on it to eat. The first thing he says to me in the morning, wanna guess? yep. "suitcase? where is it?" yeah buddy, good morning to you too.

Colby's room

At 4:30 on Saturday evening, we decided THEN was a good time to paint Colby's room, FINALLY. We only had enough time to pain 2 walls, and then we finished the other two walls on Monday.  We even found the perfect storage unit that we have been searching for at Costco, so of course we had to purchase it.  I feel that his room is now way more organized, but more than that, our living room looks a lot less like a kid tornado now that we are able to put most of Colby's toys in his room. SO SO happy with his room now :)
