this and that

Please excuse the color of my photos. Sometimes I am too lazy to set the white balance when I am taking pictures, and then I kick myself for it later when I am editing.

:: Ryann tried sweet potatoes this weekend. She is a HUGE fan. Seriously, she looked like a hungry bird and was opening her mouth so wide! It was awesome.

:: Umm, Ry has been getting to her hands and knees pretty frequently lately. It is freaking me out. I'm not ready for a mobile baby. I mean her log rolling has been enough trouble. She is all over the place. Last week I caught her eating the curtains by her playmat, and at one point she had ahold of the charger cord for Chris's iPad. Both items were out of her reach, so she had to get there somehow! She tries to go forward when she is on her hands and knees, but unless something is behind her to push off of, she ends up scooting backwards.

:: I am trying to create a facebook page for the blog but for some reason I have no idea what I'm doing. I am also thinking of creating a twitter account. I said I never would because I thought it was stupid, but I kind of want to see what all the hype is about :o). Anyone really love twitter? Or is it a waste of time?

:: This weekend we went to my parents house so my mom could babysit Ryann (read below to find out why!) Here are a few pictures from the little trip.

oh you know, just checking out the Sunday morning ads

she was playing peek-a-boo with Grandpa :o)

:: On Saturday Meaghan and I traveled to Marysville to visit our friend Katelynn and participate in the Highway 36 Treasure Hunt. Long story short it is 400 miles of garage sales and yard sales. We only looked around in Marysville, but if you made a weekend out of it all you great thrifters and yard salers could find some awesome stuff. Before we got there Katelynn and her mom scoped out the PERFECT bookshelf for Ryann's room. It was only $5, score! It needs a little help. I'm trying to decide whether to paint it white, dark grey or a color. Also if I should paint the back a different color. What do you think? There is a big ding on the top that I'm going to have to repair, but does anyone have any other brilliant ideas on how to fix that? I thought about doing tile on the top...

:: Ryann is in love with the ceiling fan in our bedroom. She has been for a while, but I thought I'd mention it so I remember it. She looks at it and does this really awkward laugh. Cracks me up every time.

:: And just a couple other pictures that I feel like posting...

About the bookshelf ding; I was thinking you could just fill it in with some nail hole filler or even Liquid Nails. Hope it helps. :)

These pics are SO cute! She has the sweetest little expressions.

The bookshelf is such a great shape, can't wait to see what you do. My only advise for color would be to use something that can grow with her so that you don't have to change it.

Sweet potatoes are the best! She looks so cute with her mouth open and the potatoes all around it.
I love the way babies let you know they want more of the food by opening their mouths like little birds!
For the bookshelf I would use some wood putty it and then sand it(that's if you are going to paint it. It will make it smooth and you can't tell the difference. Home Depot or Lowe's should have it.
Good Luck and post pictures after you redo it.
