Spring Clean - Little One's Bathroom

I have been working on my Spring Cleaning, but have not been very diligent about posting my progress. So, I'll see what I can post throughout the day. I also have not been very good about taking before pictures. But, many of the rooms do not look that different from before.

Okay - so here is Little One's Bathroom. Here is what was accomplished:

  • Hung his footprint/hand prints and a picture of him in his Daddy's arms when three days old. This is one of my favorites sets of pictures - as the hand and foot prints are a family tradition. My Grandmother has a set for everyone of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren hanging on her wall. When Little One was born, we made a lot of sets - as they are such great heirlooms. The picture has a piece of velum over it and has the following verse printed on it:
I Samuel 1:26-28
I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him.
So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord. And she worshiped the Lord there.

Little One
1:29 AM
8 lbs 10 oz

This was given to us at Little One's baby dedication. And, you know, this verse was a verse that I prayed before I was married and so desired children. The family that gave it to us didn't know that - making this little picture more of a treasure. Back to the list...
  • Cleaned and scrubbed bath, toilet, sink and mirror
  • Washed all towels and rugs
  • Put all the bath tub toys in the dishwasher
  • Organized cupboard - Cleaned out medicine/first aid box
  • Scrubbed floor
Here are pictures of the end result. Look how much room I have in the cupboard! Ha, it's not that empty any more. I found some other things to fill it with. :)

Thank you for your encouraging comments this morning!

I didn't remember Little One and N were the same birth weight! BIG!

Have a good day--it's snowing here. Sigh.
