Claire Evelyn – 9 Months Old

Claire was 9 months old yesterday. She is the most delightful little girl and I get comments all the time about how she seems happy all the time. She mostly is, unless you get too close to bedtime when she’s just done with everything for the day. She has a lot of stranger anxiety lately, so no offense nice cashier lady at Costco who made her lip quiver and eyes well up just by daring to talk to her. Still...

Claire and Ellie Update

Claire baby is 8 months old! She has had a bit of a rough past month, with pink eye, colds, and other issues, but seems to be getting better every day. We have had some regression with sleep, and I think we spoiled her too much when she was sick. She’s just so sweet otherwise, it’s hard not to give in and hold her when she wants you. We’ve had some milestones happen the past month as well. Claire is...

Katie Kelbel Interiors Update

I’ve had a bunch of fun projects through my etsy business lately, so I thought I would share some of my favorites. This project is from a repeat client, whom I have previously done a master bedroom, guest bedroom, dining room, and most recently the den. They were so much fun to work with and I absolutely love how their daughter’s room turned out. She even had some input on the wallpaper selection and other things. In this case, her bed, vanity...

Laundry Room Upgrade

Our house is old and kind of quirky. We knew when we bought it that we needed to figure out how to make better use of the space that was formerly an attached garage and converted into living space (by previous owners). We made a few changes before moving in, but we wanted to live with the space for a while before doing too much. You can see the area I’m talking about on the far right of our house. The...

Claire Bear is 6 Months!

I love that little face so much. This girl brings so much joy to our family and we are so thankful for her. Her personality default is happy all day long and she only cries if she’s tired or hungry. I don’t have much to say without getting all mom gushy about her. Claire is my little angel baby. I love this age. She’s finally old enough to roll around and play with toys on the floor by herself for...

Claire Evelyn – 4 Months Old

Claire just had her 4 month checkup on Thursday and she’s growing like crazy. She’s 98th percentile for height and 75th for weight (15 lbs, 6 oz). She caught up to Ellie for height who was always around the 98th percent or higher, but she’s not quite as much of a chunk. I spend every day smothering her with kisses and smelling her head. It’s the best! Claire has a new trick that I haven’t caught on camera yet, but...

Claire Evelyn – 3 Months

Claire is three months old today! Before she was born, I wondered what her personality would be like, and the answer is that she is the sweetest baby I’ve ever seen. Well, maybe she’s tied with her sister, but in truth, she has an easier smile, and is far less quick to fuss. She is the most laid back little sweetheart and I can’t get enough of snuggling her and smelling her amazing baby smell. Claire is happy just to...

Ellie – 3 Years Old!

Ellie turned three at the end of August and she has definitely been living up to the term “threenager” lately. She goes from being the sweetest little helper to the most feisty, patience testing little stinker in a span of five minutes. She makes me smile on a daily basis with the funny things she says, and she makes me want to pull my hair out when she asks “why?” for the thousandth time. Sugar and spice....

House Update – Dining Room and Living Room

I’ve been waiting to take pictures of my house until everything is “done.” Well, that could be a while. I do have a three year old and a newborn to deal with, so certain house projects have had to be put on hold for a bit. There are other areas where I’m waiting to find the perfect rug, vase, art, pillows, etc., etc… you get the idea. Sometimes it bothers me to look around and see so many things I...
