One Month Old (August’s Monthly Photo)

As you can see, I decided to take August’s photo in the library. Can you believe he’s one month old already? He weighs eleven and a half pounds now, and is already outgrowing his 0-3 month clothes. I wish he were happier for this, his first picture, but I was losing daylight (so no time to postpone our photo shoot). Oh well — I don’t mind having the occasional crying baby photo.

Happy one-month birthday, little guy!

(I’ll be taking a photo of August sitting in the Eames rocker and wearing his pin each month until he’s two years old. I also take monthly photos of his sister, Eleanor.)

Spectator Shoes

Do I love them or merely like them? I can’t decide. It’s the cutout. The same thing that makes them awesome is the same thing that potentially makes them awkward.

Bathroom Shelving Misjudgment

I made the trip out to IKEA on Saturday with August, specifically to buy the Ekby Shelves for the basement bathroom. They’re only seven inches deep (vs. 12″ for the west elm bookcase I had been considering), so I figured that was the way to go.

Clearly a lack of sleep is getting to me. What was I thinking? It might be all right for a lady, but you know, a man needs room to stand in front of a toilet. That’s not going to happen with shelves on the opposite wall, even if they are only 7″ deep.

This half-bath is tiny. And short — I’m 5’5″, and you can see how close the ceiling is even for me. So… I guess I’ll be cutting back on the tchotchkes? On a positive note though, the eyesore vents have been painted to match the walls and ceiling. Much better.
