Shower door

We got a new shower door installed today! As you can see the tile is also off the walls. We are in the process of prepping the walls to paint.

Wrapping up Five Months

Just wanted to share some photos from my camera. I've been pretty good about capturing daily events via phone and uploading to facebook. I have been trying to keep up with the photos on my camera as well, there aren't as many, but here are a few.

We are gradually starting solids, went ahead this past week or so as he's sitting up and definitely ready. I read a great book that I recommend about baby-led solids title Baby-Led Weaning by Gill Rapley. So he's gotten a few items down out of all he's explored. I think his official first was rice at an Indian Restaurant we ate at on May 14th to celebrate Kyle's end of semester. Since then he's experienced broccoli, spaghetti noodles, apples, cantaloupe, pork loin, sweet potato puffs, green beans, and I think that's all for now. Some has made it down and some has just landed on the floor :-)

Mothers Day

Kyle gave me a wonderful Mothers Day gift! A few weeks ago I had said I don't really want something that costs money... Just something thoughtful. (although i did get a new kindle cover) Mothers day morning he said his plan was to get pictures of me an Isaac, what a wonderful plan that was! He takes the photos, I edit them and viola a free photo session :-)

It might have to be a yearly tradition now ;-)

Evening walk

We went for a short walk along Lake Harriet tonight. It was fun being out enjoying this warm weather. But it felt oh so good walking into the A/C when we got home. Isaac of course is cuter than ever!!

Bath time fun

He is too funny.

During his bath today he was trying to put as many toys as he could handle into his mouth! It was so funny.
He was sucking on the dog's foot, it was quiet entertaining.

Isaac 5 months

I got set him up near his blocks again. But this time as soon as I sat him on the couch he couldn't take his eyes off the blocks!! I can tell it's going to be harder and harder to get him to sit still each month :-)

Dining Room

Two weeks ago we posted the bakers rack and china cabinet on craigslist to make some room in our dining room. We saw these new doors at Ikea to go on the bookcases we already had so our idea was to revamp the bookcase corner. We got the doors and moved our china hutch items in there and then also got two small book cases to put in the corner and on the south wall.

When we first got the china hutch (off craigslist for $20) we knew it was just temporary as it didn't really match anything we had but I wanted a place to put our wedding stuff. Now the dining room is coming together nicely. I'm a little bummed that my collage of photos had to get taken down, well 2 of the 5 photos had to be removed as the new book cases are taking up more space on that wall. I worked so hard measuring and getting everything just right... Kyle says I should leave those three still hanging even though they are not in the exact spot they should be, but we also don't want a million holes in the wall. Hopefully no one will notice that they are not measured out as they should be. I'll have to figure out what to do with those other photos, maybe on another wall in the dining room.

We put together the bookcases two weekends ago, and then last week I was searching craigslist for a piece for our entryway. I knew what I had in mind, I just needed to find it. I found this GREAT Crate & Barrel 'hall tree'.  We love it! For a few reasons, one being it's a good "by the front door" piece of furniture and it has a mirror on it. Since we are redoing our bathroom we are getting a new tub door and will no loner have the full length mirror in there. I was concerned about this as it's the only long mirror we have in the house. This will replace that concern perfectly :-) It is also a great place to hide away our shoes!

We've started the bathroom remodel. We are taking a break right now since Kyle's folks are coming up this weekend. But we have almost half the tiles and wallpaper down. I'll have to post photos. Once the walls are cleared up we have to clean the wallpaper residue off, make sure it is good and sealed with a quality primer (since it is the bathroom!) and then paint!  The guy came to measure for the shower door today (we are hiring that out to get installed) then we plan to tile the floor ourselves, install a new mirror, vanity, and light fixture. And we haven't decided about the toilet. We might get a new one or we might just use the one we have.... we both hate that toilet as it clogs up ALL THE TIME! And the tank and bowl are filthy even after many efforts of cleaning. We'll see. I'll have to post with some progress photos soon.
