stripes anyone?

we moved reese down stairs today. it's bitter sweet. i love that he is growing up, but it hurts my heart at the same time. today we took a nap together and he said, "momma, let's not sleep, let's talk!" Freaking Punch him for me, will ya? we got everything moved downstairs and he has been excited, but i think he is a little nervous to be down there alone. i have the baby monitor all set up and i showed him, but he is still a little apprehensive. so brad is laying on the floor for a little bit. hopefully it all goes well.... so here's the grand tour:
the stripes turned out a little bolder than i had imagined, but honestly, it looks awesome!!!!! totally brightens up a lame beige basement room. a special place for my special little man.

Reese is two and a half. and a handful. and i love him to pieces. he is so sweet to me and other times so naughty i don't know what to do. some sweetness:

-he calls sacrament "big singing time"
-he follows parsley around and talks to him all the time, gives him hugs and gets very offended if parsley doesn't love him back
-when we build blanket forts he calls them castles
-he lays his head on my belly and listens for the baby
-he sleeps with at least four stuffed animals at night and insists on having a drink of water by his bed
-he is VERY excited about his new downstairs room and asks when he can sleep there, but refuses to go downstairs by himself because of monsters
-when i ask him why? he says "because, momma, because!"
-he loves to sit on my lap and says "holds me!"
