A new addition...

So hubs and I have been on the lookout for a new couch....or sofa...whatever...what exactly is the difference between a couch or a sofa? Is it like Ketchup and Catsup?
Anyway, back when AJ was first born, we got serious cabin fever and hit up a bunch of furniture stores when he was only a few days old, in search of one we liked. We found a few that struck our fancy, but nothing that jumped out and said "BUY ME". Shortly after that, the boy decided to go through a bad spit-up/projectile stage, so we decided it must be cosmic intervention for us buying a new couch...and we should hold off for a while.
Last week, we decided to once again resume our search, now that he's not sooo bad at the spitting up...and after perusing quite a few furniture stores...some crappy and some not so crappy - we went into one place in SLO, and within 10 minutes found not only a couch, but also a chair that we loved and wanted to buy.
The couch will be here in a few days -(doesn't look anything like the chair, but I'm not a real matchy matchy person anyway) so in the meantime, please meet Hubs new favorite thing in the whole world (besides me and the kidlet of course...I said THING):
The best part? It RECLINES...hellooooooo lazytown!
Hubs actually comes home from work, caresses it softly and whispers "I missed yoooouuuu".
Whatta wingnut
Also? the couch is a reclining couch, which basically means we'll be in the throes of comfort over here....SIGH.
So you all remember the boy and his daddy sporting the tuxedo t-shirts right? Well we found another appropriate onsie for him:

Built in tie! Doesn't he look like a grumpy old man in this picture? hahahaha!
His newest thing is watching far - veggie tales and tom and jerry win out over everything else

and when I say tv watching...I mean for the 5 or 10 minutes that it captures his attention span. it's short lived, lemme tell ya!
And we had another playdate...he FINALLY noticed the cute girl this time...they were so funny together
Still super busy over here, but getting caught up with work - and soon I'll fill you all in on everything else...nothing major, just time consuming and alot to explain :)

Welcome back!!!!! I love, love, love the tie onesie, that is hilarious.

We need new couches (we don't call em' sofa's :) too, mine are from my college days are looking like it now. You'll have to give me the inside scoop on which furniture store you found yours at..

Love the pictures! AND the chair! We have the same one, only in brown. Great minds think alike :-) It is pretty darn comfortable with the recline/footrest action. I have been looking for new couches for a long time too. Joanna and I got ours at the same time from the same store...but it's a harder decision to make than I originally thought!

Your "kidlet" is freaking adorable! I love his tie onesie! Dang, he looks so big! How much does he weigh these days?

Glad you found something comfy. You totally deserve it!
