A few more home improvements:

These past two weeks we have made some improvements to our kitchen. We first cut out part of a cabinet and put a real dishwasher in its place...it is amazing! I love not having our portable one in the corner of our kitchen and our sink is usually not full of dirty dishes any more. We also got a new sink, faucet, and garbage disposal. Not very exciting things to some people, but fabulous to me!
Then we tore out our old counter tops and replaced them. For the last project Doug and I tiled our back splash last night. We are now completely done and it feels great!
For your enjoyment, some of Beckham's "fish" faces as he eats

This is a picture of our kitchen when we first moved into our house two years ago....
He spent a lot of time in the high chair and bouncy chair. He is such a good boy to still be happy while he was slightly ignored at times.



This is our new counter top...it was hard for me to like it with the ugly wall behind. Solution? Quickly do a back splash!


And here is the final project. We are pretty happy with it and excited to have our house put back together.
