Oh dear, have we ever had an eventful week! The boys were rough housing at grandma's and the littlest ended up with what, after two days in the emergency, turned out to be a fractured elbow (the initial diagnosis was a pulled elbow). The poor little guy was in a lot of pain and now is in a cast. We also had a photoshoot of our home for a Finnish magazine which was pretty exciting and a little nerve wracking especially following the two days we spent at the hospital. We were also supposed to go on vacation this week, but have to put it on hold until our little one sees the orthopaedic surgeon next week and hopefully, gets the okay to go. Since our house was pretty tidy for the photoshoot, I thought it would be a good time to share a few dining room updates with you today.
One of the biggest updates are these Lucy chairs from BendGoods. I like how they mimic the white metal of the tulip table base. I do have to make some chair pads for them at some point since the boys often sit on their knees when at the table. The metal wire seat can be pretty hard on their little feet.
