Home Improvement

Most of you may know what a horror show the 2 smaller bedrooms in our new house were when we moved in. Well, the first room we tackled was the bigger of the two which is now Gareth's room. Here's a picture of what the room looked like before.

This was actually taken after we painted the purple (yes, I said purple) baseboards with three coats of white paint. And you can't really tell but the little framed space on the wall is painted purple inside too. Seriously, what were they thinking? After two weeks and a lot of paint here is what it looks like now. What do you think?

Happy 9 Months G!

I can't believe it's been 9 months since Gareth was born! Feels like yesterday. Lately, he is very "grabby" as Justin calls it. He has to hold everything (and put it in his mouth). Some new developments this month in addition to moving into his new room in our new house:

1.) He is saying "mama"
2.) He likes to stand up (while we hold him or while he holds onto the couch, table, whatever)
3.) He is working on walking
4.) He understands that we throw Zoe's toys (at least I think he does)
5.) He likes to feed himself more than he likes to eat from a spoon

Here are a few pictures from this past month!

Maryland is Not So Bad

So, for those of you who don't know, we moved to Maryland a few weeks ago. So far, I really like our house, the location is awesome and I get to work from home a few days a week. We are still unpacking boxes but so far, so good. Zoe really likes her new backyard and we finally finished Gareth's room (it was hideous before we painted it....maybe some day I will post pictures...think pink, purple AND blue w/purple baseboards...HORRIBLE!). We are still figuring out our neighborhood and haven't ventured to Baltimore yet but hopefully we will soon.

Not related to moving, Gareth has decided that it's cool to eat real food instead of the mashed up version. He still eats his baby food but he really enjoys feeding himself. He has also decided that he might like to start walking (still doesn't crawl) he just needs to figure out how to pull himself up to standing. So far, if we stand him up, he can hold on to the couch and move around a little.

And finally, I really need to get myself together and start posting more on this blog. I promise I will do it one day.
