Life Currently

Hey all! I thought I'd give a little update on life here lately. Things are fun around here right now with our home build because a lot is happening. In the past I've always popped by the house maybe once a week. Now I'm going in almost daily because so much is happening and changing every day.
Our cabinets started getting installed last week. They are almost all finished installing all of the cabinets. I took this photo of our kitchen yesterday. I've been looking forward to this getting installed since we started the process so seeing it was really exciting for me. I remember sitting in the meeting with the guy who designs cabinets for Scott and discussing the tiniest of details of what all we wanted. Seeing it come to life is awesome! They have a tiny bit more to do in the kitchen then it will be complete. As I was leaving the house yesterday, they were getting started on my pantry--another area I've been excited about since we started. It looks like they may be saving my closet for last. Pure torture! I'm so anxious to see it come together.
Once the cabinets are all in and the trim is finished, they're going to start painting. Hopefully that will be sometime next week. The boys playroom is all done. They've installed the built-in's (and I am SO SO happy with them!!) and they've done their closet in there and I love how they arranged the shelves. I know that may seem so silly but they really maximized the space so a lot will be able to be stored in there. We did shelves all over the closet but there is one small space where we did a mini hanging bar for dress up clothes/Halloween costumes to be stored. Also we're doing a pull out sofa in there so if we have guests staying in that room they have a small little space where they can hang their clothes. It's the little details like that, that make me happy. I love the design of the playroom closet. Haha!
One of these weeks I'll get organized and do a week of house stuff. So many of you tell me how much you enjoy the updates I share on here and Instagram. I think we all love seeing homes come together....which is why there is an entire channel on TV dedicated to it! Ha!
Campbell is currently spending his days doing puzzle after puzzle. He was super into puzzles around this time last year. Then after a few months the puzzle flame died off. But on New Years Eve we went to a friends house for a little bit and they were working on a 1000 piece puzzle and Campbell "helped" and it reignited his puzzle flame. He knocks out his 48 piece puzzles pretty fast so Scott and I thought it would be fun to challenge him with a 100 piece puzzle. Earlier this week I took him to the store to pick one out and he chose this butterfly one. He has completed it once a day since we got it. It's the first thing he does when he wakes up in the morning. It takes him a couple of hours but he can do it and is getting faster each time! He LOVES it and every time he gets a few pieces he yells at me "Hey Mommy! Come see this!"
Meanwhile, Bennett is still just as busy as can be. He has changed a lot over the last month and I'm happy to report he no longer screams every second of the day. I wrote a month or two ago about him turning 16 months old and that same week he began screaming his wants and it was driving me to the nut house. It lasted about three insanely long months. A few weeks before Christmas it stopped and he's been going strong since. I am now able to enjoy his presence again and not only do I enjoy him, I find him to be more adorable than ever and he is currently at my favorite stage thus far. Isn't that how it always works? Hard to be around one week, can't get enough of them the next. Toddlers...
Ivy and Madison are still just living the dream. Same ol' same ol'.
