It's High Chair Time

We started Goobie on solid foods one month ago, but didn't have a high chair. We tried feeding her on laps, on paper towel covered carpet, on the linoleum in the kitchen, and even on the kitchen table. She sits up really well, but her curiosity about everything around her makes it difficult to keep her focused. Usually she finds a way to get back onto her tummy, getting sweet potatoes everywhere. We decided it was time to buy a high chair.

So today, I loaded up the Goober into the car and ventured to one of my favorite stores, IKEA. They have a high chair that's very affordable and compact -- perfect for our little apartment. But to get to the high chairs we had to walk through the whole store. Pretty soon I had decorated our entire apartment a la IKEA. It took all I could to not sort through the window treatments to find the perfect fit for our new place. But, I walked away and only left with the high chair and some plastic bowls and plates for Goobie.

Lookin' good!

I've got my own chair, Mommy!

In other news, it's T-minus 7 weeks until graduation. I can't believe it's finally here! It's weird to think we'll be leaving this place that has been our first home as a little family. But, we're excited and ready to take that first step in our next adventure!


  1. I've heard a lot of good things about IKEA high chairs. At least going to IKEA gave you some quality time outside the apartment to exercise your imagination :) I'm a total sucker for Bed Bath & Beyond. I'm hoping that since my birthday is pretty soon after our move that I can get some gift cards and have fun.

  2. She is so stinkin' cute!!! Seriously! So darling!!!
