So it's official we got an apartment! We've been living in my dads house for the past year and it's been great and all (Cole has his own room, etc) but we really need our own space. We found a very cute basement apartment where the kitchen meets my standards (VERY important for me, and hard to find on our budget) I love it! Move in date is November 1st! Very, very soon! Gotta start packing!!!!!!

5 Months!

Coles 5 month video (will also be posted on his monthly videos page)

Okay so I know I'm 3 days early, but I couldn't resist putting this video up. I worked really hard on it, and I loooooove it!!! I've been using Windows Live Movie Maker for my videos but I think this will be the last one that I make using that program. I got iLife 09' for Daniels' Mac and I'm going to start using that instead. It has ALOT more things you can do, and I'm kinda obsessed with making videos. I really want to re-do his first month one because when I made that one I didn't know I was going to do monthly videos and it doesn't really show much from his first month of life.

Halloween is in a few days and I'm of course dressing Cole up (it's a surprise so for the people who already know, shhhhhh) and I'm going to take him to a few peoples houses, his Aunts and a few close family friends, so that the can see him in his adorable costume. I love Halloween, mainly because it means my birthday is coming up!!!!!! I'm excited I go to my favorite restaurant for my birthday every year (usually only go once a year which is why I'm soooo excited for it) it's called Babur and it's an Indian restaurant (my fav food.)

I keep seeing Christmas commercials on TV... is that CRAZY or am I just in denial? Maybe I'll like Christmas this year.... maybe.

Park, Vlogs and Sweet Potatoes

So, I realize that my consistency in blogging is lacking hardcore. Lifes busy. Cole is awesome!

He's rolling over more and somehow manages to move his head from one end of the crib to the idea how he does that! We went for his 4 month appointment on October 8th, and we found out he weighs 18lbs 7oz which is RIGHT in between what be and Daniel bet on(I said 18lbs 4oz and he said 18lbx 10oz). And he's 26 inches long. He's still a big boy.

We went to the park yesterday for our next door neighbours first birthday! It was a very cute party, of course Cole didn't get to partake in the pizza and cake eating but he did love playing on the swings and things of that sort.

I'm STILL trying to do some vlogs, but I just can't find the time. I really want to do a Nursery video for Cole's room, especially since we may be moving soon I really want Cole to know what his first room looked like. I've also been meaning to just do an update vlog, I got some new subscribers and it really pushed me to do it...but it just hasn't been done YET...

I made Cole his first batch of sweet potato food today. He doesn't really like the rice cereal and I've read up on it and apparently it's not necessary for rice cereal (or another type of cereal) to be their first foods. So today I made him sweet potato, I'm really excited to be making all his baby food myself. I feel like I kinda failed at breastfeeding, and this is something I want to do so he's getting the healthy, natural, organic foods instead of the stuff with added junk. It was very easy to make as well, I just washed and peeled one sweet potato (it's not necissary for me to over make baby foods right now because he's still getting used to it and he's not eating quite so much yet) then i cut it into little chunks and boiled it. After that I cooled them in a dish of cold water (potatoes in a bowl, bowl in dish full of cold water) then put them in the food processor and added some of the water that I boiled them in to make them thinner. After they were a good consistancy I put the mixture into an ice cube tray to freeze. Easy. I want to make all sorts now!!
