Baby girlfriend, first and foremost.... do you care to explain the following pictures????
|3 days old|
|6 months, 3 days old|
You tried "people food" for the first time this month. We started with whole grain oatmeal cereal, and though you hated it on Day 1, you started gobbling it up by the second day. However, you seem to be more interested in gnawing on the spoon that I give you, so I've started using two spoons and alternating one to eat and one for you to gum. It works out well! I also experimented with making my first food, sweet potatoes. I finally got to break out the Baby Bullet that we (you) got at our baby shower, and man that thing is awesome!! 2 sweet potatoes and some water, plus some ice cube trays for storing, and I had enough food to last you two weeks! And the whole thing took me less than 10 minutes when it was all said and done. I felt all accomplished and whatnot for having made my own baby food. I hope I can keep it up!
You are still sleeping like a champion! Sleep has changed the lives of everyone in our household, and a few times I've even worried that you sleep "too much." Seriously??? Why do I have to worry about everything? Ha. But yes, sleep is amazing and I still can't get over how gosh darn happy you are all the time. If you're not sleeping, you're smiling, and you charm every single person around you. Case in point: We went to Target on Saturday, and people kept stopping and commenting on how adorable you were. that will never get old. Of course I think you're adorable (the most adorable person ever, actually) but hearing that other people see it too makes me smile with mommy pride. You sleep on your belly now, which freaked me out at first because you tended to face plant when you rolled over and I was nervous that you couldn't breathe. But after several nights of staring at the video monitor for hours (and hours) I realized how much cozier you were in the position.
You and daddy are still best friends. It was your first Fathers Day (outside the womb, that is) and you decided to buy daddy a new golf bag and pose for this adorable photo op:
You still look like a deer in headlights when I take your picture, but that's okay. May you never become an actress, because the paparazzi will stalk you as an easy target.
Until next month darlin'....
