Big Boy Table

We made a little trip to the DIY-ers heaven called Ikea this weekend. We went to get a few things to finish off the playroom and wound up buying a TON of cute things that we couldn't pass up for young Ish (even though our bank account tried to talk us out of it). One item not on our must-get list was this little table and chair set.
We built it that night (and by "we" I mean Matt) and set it up in the kitchen. It is where Ish dined like a king the next morning.
He was just so stinking cute - sitting in his chair like a big boy, eating his waffle. I expected a lot of on-the-chair-off-the-chair-walk-around-with-my-food antics, but Ish surprised us and sat quietly (and cutely) the whole time he was eating.
I of course could not resist taking this picture - his little legs dangling from the tiny chair!
We made pretty good progress in the basement this weekend with our other Ikea finds. Updates and pictures to come!

I'd like to end this post with a special thanks to Kayla over at And Potato Makes Three (formerly The Randolph Family) - she passed on the Super Comments Award to me this weekend. Be sure to check out her blog - she has a cute new blog button and is now on Twitter! Thanks Kayla!!

I love the big boy table. I have been to IKEA once and its like a wonderland. I can't wait to get a bigger house so I can get some goodies from them.
