To say we've been busy would be an understatement -- our son, Martin, joined our crew in June, and to say we're completely nuts might also be an understatement - we started remodeling our home in September. Now that everyone's up to speed on that, allow me to make some introductions...

This is Martin Spencer BW...(and his lady-friend, Sophie)

This was our den...


and this was our kitchen...


As we approach week six of our home renovation (which will take roughly 18 weeks to complete *major sigh*), I find myself constantly having to remind myself of decorator, Tom Scheerer's words of wisdom, "Don't make too much trouble for yourself. Live life now rather than after a torturous renovation." If you've ever been through a major home renovation, then you know how this feels - living out of a suitcase, all your comforts of home packed up in an incredibly inconvenient Pod in another city, oh and with a 4.5 month old baby to boot. It's pretty darn easy to say, "when this thing is over, life will be back to normal" or the more common one around this household, "did we really think this one through?"

But what about today? Well, I'll tell you about today. Today was pretty freaking awesome. I got to make and feed this little prodigy his first taste of delicious rice cereal and apple/pear/cinnamon sauce. Judging by the pics, I'm either lousy at stewing up apples or this is going to take some practice. We're gonna go with the latter. 




Regardless of how much these pics are screaming that this is some form of child torture, we're gonna keep at it, one little rubber spoonful at a time. 

And regardless of how much our kitchen and den look like this...


I'm going to drift on dreaming that in a few short weeks, I'll be whipping up some mad baby food in this kitchen...

Here's hoping everyone has a super productive Wednesday! Oh and Happy Birthday, big brother, John! Peace out, meine freunde's.
