Tricycle

Someone is learning to pedal!

Here's Bella on her pink RadioFlyer from Nana and G-Daddy. She's just figured out how to pedal herself.

Speaking of - "I'm gonna do it by myself!" is a phrase we hear a lot these days. I have to say, Potty is my favorite thing she can do herself (meaning, getting the stool to step up, undressing, wiping, flushing, and then moving the stool to wash her hands).

"You stay here! I do it myself!!!"

2.5 or 16??

Geez. Too big, too fast.

I have always complained about our favorite restaurant not being child friendly. You have to bring your own booster or clip-on high chair to Taqureria. Then, BAM! they are all grown up and can sit in their own chair, eating chips and dip with you. Stop growing, little one!

I think this is why I complain far far less about anything Farrah does (cry, spit up, etc.) because all of a sudden, they are grown.

Is it possible to live in the moment too much?

Athens

We visted our friends in Athens the weekend before last. As usual when we visit each other, Morgan, Kelly, Bobby, Chris and I went to Taqueria. Our entourage is growing!

The next morning, the boys played golf and we sewed. We are so domesticated. Not.

The only thing missing in Athens was my sister. Love you, Chelsie.

Also missing was a visit to Allison- Happy 30th, Allison!!!

Mother's Day weekend 2010

Mother's Day weekend was so nice. We relaxed at the Green's on Saturday, and at Kristy and Paul's on Sunday. So great to be with our Mama's!

Farrah is 6 MONTHS!!!

IMG_3909

Half a year!?!!? I can't believe it.

IMG_3896

Farrah is sitting up for short periods of time, with lots of pillows for protection.
After a month of rice cereal, she started with some sweet potatoes yesterday and LOVES them! I was in no rush to do baby food this time around... mostly because it's just another thing that I have to do. I love making the baby food, but it's super easy to just have her on milk... I don't have to prepare anything... food is always with us :)

At her 6 month appt, she was about 18 lbs (only gaining 1/2 a pound in two months). At dinner, she eyes us eating food. So we started and she loves it. And she slept better than she EVER has last night. I might be questioning why I hadn't already started solids... that was the best night sleep in about 8 months! :)

Farrah is such a bundle of joy! I don't know how else to say it. She's just a sweet baby, and I'm soaking up all the baby stuff before she gets any bigger :)

She has two bottom teeth in. I feel like she has a bunch of teeth about to come in, but the doctor said she thought it would be a while by the looks of them. She has started refusing the paci this month, although she'll chew on it and pass it from hand to hand. She has found her "voice" this month as well - really squealing in delight at her favorite toys.

I feel so blessed to be a mom, and particularly to Farrah and Bella.

Pictures of the girls at 5 Months!

Pretty cool to see them in pictures at the same age...

It's funny, one second I don't think they look alike... then the next I do! This age is fun, for sure!
