About Me

My photo
I try to be superwoman. I like iced cappuccinos, photography, design and being neat and tidy. My husband and I are homebodys - even though we've been together for 10 years, (married for three) our life is never boring. We have an almost two year old daughter who is the center of our world. Join us as we make our house a home and juggle parenthood for the first time.

Happy 6 Months Sophie!

Is it really halfway until your first birthday Sophie?! You are discovering everything with a big smile on your face. I live for those smiles. Six months has been a fun month!

This was one big month of learning and new experiences for you. You tried fruit for the first time! You are also a pro at eating your veggies. Mommy and daddy are so proud. You like squash the best along with peas and green beans. Unfortunately the green veggies are constipating for you, so we have to ask the doctor about that issue. You've also eaten carrots and sweet potatoes too. You also will be trying some avocado this week since I want to start making and freezing more of your food.

You were sick for the first time with a stomach bug that lasted for 2 weeks! We had to give you probiotics and change up your formula to a gentler, soy formula for sensitive tummies. At first when you were sick we thought you were in pain because of teething, but still no teeth yet! You also got a very bad diaper rash because of your upset tummy so we used a special cream to get rid of that.

You are still a pretty good sleeper, but when you were sick for 2 weeks, you didn't like falling asleep on your own. You now like to wake up around 5:30 am when daddy leaves for work and toss and turn a lot. I take you into mommy and daddy's bed so you can finish sleeping. You practice crawling in your sleep and toss and turn quite a bit.

You are an expert roller now and can get to anything you want by rolling to it. You scoot while trying to crawl and rock while on all fours. You go up on your hands and knees and then drop down to scoot with your head down and inchworm to the things you want. We are waiting any day now to see you take off!

You are still in size 2 diapers and are eating 5oz. every 3 hours. You have 2-3 tablespoons of rice cereal and 2 tablespoons of veggies/fruit at dinner. You are a pretty good eater. We're going to ask the pediatrician if you should start eating cereal or fruit in the morning too.

Sophie, you are wearing 6 month clothes now. In a span of one month you outgrew your 0-3 and 3 month clothes. Even some of your 6 month clothes are getting tighter! You must have had a big growth spurt. We even put you in a couple 9 month outfits.

It looks like you are getting a lot more hair this month too. It is very fuzzy and thick and daddy likes to style it often. You can officially sit and will play for a few minutes sitting, but you sure like to be on your belly to (try to) crawl.

We took you to your first football game this past weekend. You really enjoyed it! You liked looking at all of the people and the new noises. You helped the cheerleaders with some chants even! You looked especially adorable with your fleece outfit - you had everyone coming up to you to say hi! We also took you to the pumpkin patch to pick our pumpkins. You liked sitting with the pumpkins and touching them. You also like touching cornstalks. It is a new texture for you! We also went to the cider mill. We went twice so far. We will definitely go again. It is our favorite time of the year. You had a little bite of a donut - didn't seem to faze you!

Sophie, we love you so much. You enrich our lives by just being a part of our family. We share in your joy of every new experience with you. These past 6 months have been the most rewarding months of my life. I am so proud to be your momma.

What are you reading?

What are you reading right now?

I am trying to get through my mound of Glamour, Real Simple and BH&G magazines.

What are you and baby reading right now?

We're starting the Madeline Complete Collection - The book was a gift from our shower from Sophie's Aunt Jaime. (My best friend/sorority big sister)

Tell me what is on your reading list!

Run Around....Sophie?

Sophie recently likes this song - I had to tell my dad since he is actually close with Dion from Dion and the Belmonts. The word spread and so did this video straight to Dion's computer. He loved it!
