Fertilizer? and first time yard

In our town house we never had to work in the yard.  "We chose to do a few things."  (patio pavers Which I will share with you this summer)  However, I know pretty much NOTHING when it comes to a yard.
We just got our GRASS 2 months ago and there is still so much to learn.

When the grass was first installed I thought, ok hubby mows it and I forget about it..... It looked like this for a few months...

BUT NOW.  It looks like this.

Not bad, but getting patchy and not sure what to do. This is when a very un educated yard person asks her father in law for help.  I get to learn about fertilizer.

Growing up my dad always had someone take care of the yard so I NEVER even thought about it.
WOW people are VERY opinionated and as they should be.  I like to think of myself as somewhat green, (ie cloth diapers hippy here) but not perfect.  I have learned ALOT.
This is my favorite description of what to use and why.

That being said I will be using some Chemical Fertilizers this week to give my grass some MUCH needed food and hoping to get the spots less splotchy and beautiful green!

I totally LOVE Home Depot, that is MY hardware store! :D I'm planning to stop by there tonight after work and pick this up!
