6 months old

It's actually almost 7 months but I am behind.
Such is the life of a mom. ( insert sigh)

*Is that poop or chocolate on there.....?*

Hubba Hubba

New favorite trick- foot in mouth
Way more fun than practicing crawling

Feet have never been so fascinating

He has a loud throaty laugh now too. 
I have yet to get it on video though!

Happy 6 month Birthday little man!
I can't believe he has been around for half a year!
Half a year! 
Almost the length of time I knew I was pregnant with him.
 That seemed to be forever and this has just flown by.
 I can barely wrap my head around it.

Arts n' Farts

Over the weekend a few friends and I went to a painting party! 
We bought the deal on Living Social and lucky for me the shop is just down the street.
Hopefully it is doing well and will stick around because at the moment downtown Renton is looking pretty sad.
 A lot of shops have closed, the coffee shop is now cash only (wtf) 
 is moving to Kent!
 DTR is again doomed.

The event was at Arts-n-Carafes
We got snacks and wine and all the supplies needed to make our paintings.
There was a teacher who walked us all through each step as we followed along.
Even though we  were all working on the same scene they all turned out very different in the end!

I definitely recommend stopping by for some painting fun!

Baby's first food

Hello, my name is Clark and ...

It might be the constant growing or it might be the teeth pushing through

( check out this neat chart)

But no matter how much we feed him, he seems to have room for more.
I am hoping that having some solid foods in him will help him sleep through the night as well.
I am still up every couple hours with him and it is really starting to wear on me.
I would love to get my 7 hours in one consecutive chunk one day!

Day 1

Day 2

He wants to hold the spoon and can't get enough

Fast learner!

We have been feeding him Earth's Best mixed with a little apple sauce

He is still a pro with the bottle though.
Check this out.

Now that's talent!

The nursery is done......... 6 month later

This room is:
Clark & Bentley approved

It has been almost a year since we started putting up drywall and getting the room ready,
Last week we finally finished with the last piece of trim!
It turned out pretty close to how I had imagined it.
I have no idea if Clark likes it, but he's a baby, so who cares.



My mom sewed the adorable crib skirt and shades for the room

And mustache pillow

Pleated to match the shades

Finished dresser


Now I can kick back and relax
