"Real" Food

Sunday we decided that now that Ethan is 5 months old, we would let him at least try rice cereal to see if he liked it. Whenever we eat he always watches the fork go from plate to mouth, so we figured he understood the concept. So that morning just before his bath we mixed some cereal together and gave it a whirl! I think he got more on his face and clothes than he did on in his mouth, and he made a few faces, but at least he didn't hate it. But I think we'll wait till he's about 6 months to let it be a regular thing :) Oh yea and we'll get a real baby spoon, I don't think he liked the metal too much.

I went dark!

Oh and I decided I wanted a change so I dyed my hair dark brown. Eric says it will take some getting used to (code for he's not a fan of the change) but I really like it!
(I just tried to get rid of the white bar on the side of the pictures but I can't figure it out- sorry!)

New and Improved

We are in our new and freshly painted apartment! And not a moment too soon, school started on Wednesday. So far it's been ok, but I never knew how hard it would be juggling classes and Ethan. But we are moved in and that helps. The people who painted the apartment yellow didn't do a very good job of taping and when we painted we were very careful about taping, so you can still see yellow along some of the cracks and on the baseboards. We'll eventually have to repaint them but we are ok with it for now. Here are some pictures:

The kitchen

We painted one wall in the kitchen and part of the living room a darker tan so we'd have a two-tone effect.

The light tan turned out way lighter than I wanted- when I went with the owner to pick out paint, she kept telling me that every color would look darker once it was on the whole wall, so she made me go two shades lighter than I wanted the color to turn out. And it ended up looking exactly like the swatch, which was very light.

The bedroom- I really like this color, this is what I wanted the rest of the apartment to look like, but we weren't about to repaint.

All moved in!
(I would have taken more of the moved in house but my camera battery died.)

Perfect Fit

So I don't know if Eric looks for places to put Ethan or if he's just inspired spur of the moment, but he found a new place where Ethan fit perfectly. The bathroom sink. Surprisingly enough he didn't mind it too much so we decided to take a few pictures while he hung out. I think it helped that he has a new fascination with staring at his toes.
