Uncle Justin's iPhone

Andy loves lights, he always likes to look at them and follow them. So of course he was fascinated with uncle Justin's iPhone. He liked watching the game my brother was playing. And we don't get Justin to hold Andy too often so I had to catch a quick picture.

Andy and Jack

Last week I went over to my friend Lyndsay's house so we could make baby food together. We took some pictures of Andy and Jack together, they are getting so big! Jack is now over 5 months old, and Andy will be 5 months old next Wednesday.
Making baby food was lots of fun, probably because Lyndsay and I were doing it together. Although Andy woke up early from his nap so I wasn't a whole lot of help. Lyndsay ended up doing most of the work. I can't wait to see what Andy thinks about the food we made. We made carrots, avocado, green beans and sweet potatoes. He won't get to try it for a little while though. We have yet to try rice cereal. I am waiting for a while longer. Maybe we will try it in a week or two and then he will get to try other foods. Yummy yums!

Into the Woods

We took another walk to our local Starbucks. I just love how cute Andrew looks in this adorable bear suit. It kept him nice and warm, and lots of people at Starbucks commented on how bundled up and cute he looked.

Johnny Jump-Up

This week we bought Andrew a Johnny Jump-Up because he loves to bounce. When we hold him standing up on our lap he tries to bounce, so we figured he would love to have a Johnny Jump-up to jump in. And we were right. It is so much fun to see him jump and giggle!

I've Been Tagged

My friend Lyndsay at Handsome Little Men tagged me to post 15 things that you all might or might not know about me so here they are...
1. I am LOVING being a stay at home mom
2. I just finished making my own baby food for Andy for the 1st time. (Although Lyndsay did most of it, thanks Lyndsay!)
3. I actually like using cloth diapers, it is not as bad as I thought it would be.
4. I have started just guessing on some measurements when cooking, and it has worked pretty well so far. Why dirty more dishes???
5. I make a monthly menu of the dinners we will have, and then make a grocery list from it.
6. I wish I had more time for blogging, making cards, scrapbooking...
7. I am not a fan of spicy food.
8. If I could go anywhere right now I would go to Disneyland or Paris, or better yet Disneyland Paris. :)
9. I have watched every season of Survivor
10. I don't mind doing laundry, but don't like cleaning the bathrooms.
11. Micah and I have an ongoing contest to see who has gone to the most states, sadly he is currently winning.
12. Even though I love to travel, and have gone to many places, my favorite place to be is at home.
13. I have not gone to see a movie in the theater since before Andrew was born.
14. I LOVE coupons! And I use them every chance I get.
15. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful husband, and adorable baby!

Cute 4 Month Pictures

One of our friends wants to become a photographer someday, and so she is trying to build her portfolio. She has been doing pictures of Andrew every month. Here are some of my favorites.

Balancing Andrew

Most of you probably know that Micah is able to balance almost anything on his nose, chin, or in his hand. So of course he had to try and balance our baby. He has been doing it for a while, ever since Andrew could keep his legs stiff. Micah usually does it right before we put Andy to bed because he is wrapped up in his Swaddle Me blanket. Andrew thinks it is great fun!

When It Rains, It Pours

Last week was a bit of an interesting week for us. First of all, on Saturday Micah noticed that our hot water tank was leaking in a few places. Not good. So he did some research to find out what to do: should we hire someone to replace it or could he do it himself. He decided it didn't look too complicated so he figured we would save some money and he could do it. Then on Sunday morning I went to run the dishwasher, and it made a grinding noise. Not good. But since Micah was already trying to figure out the hot water heater situation he did not have time for the dishwasher. Then Sunday afternoon Micah went to run the garbage disposal, and it exploded under the sink. Not good. Thankfully that was an easy, although messy, fix. At this point I was almost ready to cry. Was everything in our house going to break??? Micah reminded me that God is in control and not to worry. What a wonderful husband!
On Wednesday one of our friends was able to help Micah pick up a new hot water tank and install it. Then on Saturday Micah took the dishwasher apart. He found a small piece of rock, or something like it, stuck in one of the grates. He put the dishwasher back together and it ran great. We are thanking God that everything is working well, and just hope that nothing else decides to break down on us.
