Blinds to go

When we moved in, one of the first things we needed were blinds. Well, for those of you who have used Blinds to Go or Next Day Blinds, they don't have those stores in NC. So we asked the neighbors for recommendations. Everyone (and I mean EVERYONE) on our street used this one couple, Doug and Polly, who live in Topsail, NC (near Wilmington). So three weeks ago they were ordered and they finally come in tomorrow. Thank goodness, because Ashley needs to stop getting up with the sun every morning!!

Just to clarify since Dorrie asked, these pictures are not from our house but from Mom and Ed's beach house, hence the blinds already in the pictures. Dorrie is very detail oriented. :)

Here are some pictures from last week. Ashley saw all the kids in our neighborhood on bikes, and just had to have one as well. She took to it pretty quickly and only sometimes hits the brakes without meaning too. Audrey started solids last week as well. She loves it and I think she was mad that we were holding out for so long!! So far, she loves sweet potatoes and squash (I am determined to have 2 children that eat vegetables unlike their father). More updates - Ashley is fully potty trained. Last night, though, she wanted to actually see the pee coming out and ended up peeing all over the toilet seat. She finally decided that pooping on the potty was much better than in her underwear. Audrey rolled over this weekend from back to front. Yes, we are happy for her, but Ray and I want her to stay little as long as possible!! If she doesn't crawl until she's two, that's fine with us!! I think that's about it. Ray has his first settlement next week and I am chugging along at work. We meet more neighbors every day as more people move in on our street. Our immediate neighbors to the left finally came (only for the weekend, they move here definitely the end of June) and the following people will like them - Adrienne, Allen, Ed and Sean. The Dad is a Dallas Cowboys and New York Yankees fan. I may be spray painting their yard come football time......
