Redecorating Rambling.....

Patrick and I are currently in the process of redecorating our living room. We are painting the walls brown. I've got a little thing for chocolate brown right now(as you can tell from my blog wallpaper). So after one failed paint color we think we've found the right one. It's been giving me a headache, It's a pretty big commitment to paint such a dark color. My inspiration comes from Better Homes and Gardens October 2008 article Triple Play pages 37-40 in case you get the mag. Once we have the furniture back in the room I'll give an update. I just hope it turns out like I want it too.

Chase is 6 months!

Chase was 16 lb 15.8 oz and 27.5in. at his 6 month checkup on Monday. As you can see from the pic still plenty of drool but no teeth yet! He was my best sleeper until last night. He had the nerve to wake me up 4 times! He usually sleeps 6 to 7 hours with a feeding at 4 or 5am. We'll see what happens tonight. Hopefully it was just a reaction to his shots from Monday. He started to sit up by himself at 5 months 3 weeks it was like it had happened overnight. One day he was all floppy the next his back straight as a board.

Cereal and Water Heaters

Saturday I decided to give Chase cereal for the first time. He seemed to like it. Next it's fruits and veggies!

We have had problems with our water heater, so Patrick decided it was time to replace it. It went in without a problem. We ended up putting in a 50 gallon tank instead of the 40 gallon we had. Our neighbor suggested we upgrade to be prepared for a house full of teenagers! I have such a handy husband!
