5 months old

To my sweet Sophia,

You are 5 months old today love bug. You are growing so fast!
Can you slow down just a bit?

Some of your favorite things:
Your feet
My hair
Going for walks
Going to Target
Reading books
Playing pat-a-cake
When daddy whistles at you
Sitting on the front porch

You are still sleeping like a champ, at night that is. During the day, not so much! We're working on it.

We started solids a couple of weeks ago and you are really enjoying your food. Peas and sweet potatos are your favorite. (That's my girl)

You are starting to sit up, you are still a little wobbily but I think you'll get the hang of it pretty quick!

You giggle all the time now, it makes my heart smile.

Sophia's visit with Nana

My mom flew down from Michigan last Wednesday for a visit and left yesterday. The trip was short but sweet. They had such a great time together. We stayed quite busy in those short 5 days, they were filled with morning walks, shopping, lots of mexican food, naps, shopping, cooking, and more shopping! Sophia was wore out!

Eating big girl food!

When we went to Sophia's 4 month appointment, her pedi told us we could start solids after she does good for on the rice cereal for a while. Well she has done great! She swallows it very well instead of pushing it out with her tongue and even cries when it's all gone. She does great with the spoon! I decided I wanted to make her baby food so I busted out the blender and made some peas! They were so easy to make and it was actually kind of fun. I'm so exctited to make her all sorts of other foods now. I think we might head down to Central Market today and see what kind of fruits and veggies we can find.

The many faces of my daughter...

She keeps us very entertained to say the least...

This is her most recent face she likes to make, we call it her monkey face :)

Silly face

Giving me the "side eye", I don't think she was too happy here

When she was younger she always did what we call, the baby bird

Her serious face

Sleepy head

And this is my absolute favorite!

First trip to the park

Friday when Rudy got off work we decided to take Sophia up to Holland Lake Park so she could get out of the house and see the ducks. She loved it! She wouldn't take her eyes off of those ducks. We'll have to go more often. Here are a few pics :) Enjoy!
