Living Room Makeover & Random Stuff

Here's the photo I promised of the living room. We used to have plain white walls. I love the subtle paint color. New windows and curtains help, too. But my favorite part of the room is the painting Adam & I made together.

I found some paintings I liked on Pinterest & combined a few of the ideas into one. It was a fun project that didn't cost much at all.

This guy just finished his second soccer season.

Levi hasn't had much trouble with his ears in the past, but is scheduled to get tubes this summer. He has been having problems since January with ear infections. I cancelled a hearing test for the second time (knowing that he can't do a hearing test when he has an ear infection or with the fluid that would stay in his ear for weeks following an ear infection), and a nurse called back saying the ENT wanted to see him anyway. He had just finished a round of antibiotics so I figured he was fine.  Turns out, his ear was still in bad shape. I'd have never known he was having a problem unless she asked to see him. Maybe this is why his ENT has people from California & Hawaii come to Cincinnati Children's to see her! She is amazing. I'd have never known he had sleep apnea if it weren't for her & the second sleep study she did proved that taking out his tonsils took away his sleep apnea. Click here to read more about his doctor.

Our dogwoods are in full bloom. I love how these trees change throughout the year.

I have not kept my word about blogging more. Sometimes Facebook is just faster. Sometimes, I feel like I shared everything on Facebook & have nothing left to share here. Sometimes I feel like I don't have anything interesting to say. Regardless, I need to get back to this space. Thanks for stopping by.

Love the painting!! It's so pretty, you guys did a great job!

Russell constantly has fluid on his ears so he is getting new tubes too. There have been many times we have gone to the Doctor for other reasons and they have told me he has an ear infection. He never complains, so I would never know! Needless to say I am happy we are getting new tubes.

I love when you have time to post here :)
