Happy 1/2 Birthday!!

Our itty bitty little baby is growing up. Six months old, I can hardly believe it.

First time sitting up by herself for one of these party pictures. I'm in awe as I snap her picture. Josie on the other hand, acts like she's been sitting up like this her entire life. "What's the big deal?" she says.

"Here mom, look! It says I'm 6 months old today. Do you want me to hold it up so you can see it better?"

Getting bigger by the moment, but not quite as tall as the tulips in our backyard.

Mmm...chocolate cupcake with sprinkles. Delicious. Good thing Josie doesn't know what she's missing. Otherwise, we would have had to split that four ways. Not fun.

Four ways because Todd's dad celebrated Josie's 1/2 birthday with us. Thanks for being at our party, Papa John!

I heart cereal; sweet potato, not so much

Josie was so excited, as was I, for her second round of food tasting. Cereal was a big hit, now on to bigger and better sweet potato!

I'm thinking, "We've got this in the bag! She's gonna love it. She's gonna do so great!"

Hmmm...not so much.

No really...not so much.

Dear Josie, I didn't mean to torture you with apparently disgusting flavors, like sweet potato. Don't worry your little heart, I'll try something better next time. Maybe decadent squash or savory green beans?

Easter and the Tongue

A bizarre title for a post, I know. But here are a few pictures to show why I labeled this entry as "Easter and the Tongue"...

Josie is going through what I think is an adorable stage of sticking out her tongue all the time. I love how the tip of her tongue elevates so perfectly. It's helping with our "l" sounds...something only a speech pathologist would say. :-)

Finally! Two shots where Josie is NOT sticking out her tongue. One with cousin Luke. I love his little hand on her shoulder.

One examining our first Easter basket every so intently.

And one where she is off in her own world, just thinking about how cute she is in her little Easter dress...

I heart cereal

So, Josie had her first bowl of cereal a few weeks ago. And come to find out, cereal for babies is very a thin and runny, almost oatmeal like substance VS you know, your typical Lucky Charms or Todd's favorite, Fruity Pebbles. Fruity Pebbles? Really? Anyway, cereal for babies...Josie loved every drop!

Well, at first she didn't love it.

But very quickly got the hang of it. After taking a spoonful, she could barely open her mouth fast enough for the next bite. She's daddy's little girl. :-) And of course, Todd and I took turns feeding her because we BOTH love doing everything when it comes to this little stinker.

And below, this is the face she had after I had given her the last bite. That is, this is the face she had before she KNEW it was her last bite. Once I said "all done!" (I swear she knows what this means already), then the smile QUICKLY turned into a terribly annoyed cry. Which then lasted until I refilled her cereal bowl. This girl's gotta eat!
