Anikka Turns 1!!!

Remember my sweet little newborn lady? The Peanut, as I fondly called her. We're celebrating her first birthday today! We love you Baby Nanny!
You are the happiest baby we've ever met and you especially love: bathtime, clapping, your big brother, and FOOD!
You will eat almost anything (except pureed green beans, but honey, I don't blame you!) and like to pretend you're making it yourself. The "kitchen" is one of your favorite toys!

And you with your pigtails? I DIE! Look at how sweet your little face is! We love you so much, Little Beaners! We know your next year will be wonderful, too!
Stats: We got to the doctor for her one year checkup on Friday, but last we checked (which was a month ago) she was around 22 lbs!
Blue eyes and auburn/red curly hair.
She's not walking yet but soon, she cruises everywhere and can walk with her walker by herself for long periods of time and loves to do it!
Anikka loves to clap and "dance" to music, and has a very jolly personality, and giggles ALL THE TIME :)
Nicknames: Nanny, Ani, Little Bean, Monkey, Goober Girl, Cheekies, Sweetzie, and Bumperina. We mostly just call her "Nans"!

How To: DIY Sand/Water Table

How To: Build A Sand/Water Table for Under $30!
Sorry this took me so long to blog, but I had to have a tool list and full instructions before I could do so.
A little history on my love for the sand/water table. I love the idea behind tools for tiny hands, i.e. the Montessori Method, and like to have Lukka 'figure things out for himself', even when he is playing. I try to have the most simple and basic toys available for 3 reasons: a) simple toys generally have less parts, which means less of a hassle for me
b) simple toys inspire way more creativity and imagination than do 'exact replica' toys
c) they are much more aesthetically pleasing to look at, therefore, not making every nook and cranny of our house an eyesore!
I know the last reason is just for me, but it's true. Plastic things don't generally last 1/2 as long as wooden or fabric toys, and they are unattractive. For this reason, I started to look for a wooden sand/water table as opposed to a plastic one …
