Mia crusing in the walker at Mimi and Papaw's tonight. Notice the caged tiger in the background....Please don't feed the animals.

Hungry Jayden?? He's he cutest little guy EVER!

Excellent work!

Once again, Julie Marchese, did a fantastic job!!! Here are a few of Mia's 6 month pictures! Sorry, they may be a little blurry :) I took a picture of the picture just so I could brag about the awesome pics! Thanks SO much, Julie! Can't wait for her 9 month pics!!!

What I live for....

Mia's giggles = tears of joy for this mommy.

Yum Yum

Mia started eating stage 1 baby food last Wednesday! We started her on peas. The first night she didn't really know what to think. Our Dr. said to only introduce 1 new food every 4 days. So by Saturday night she "licked" the container clean of peas! Sunday night we tried carrots. She spit all of them out. So Monday, we tried them again, spit them all out again. So I thought, maybe we'll try green beans. Nope, spit those out, too! So, tonight we mixed some cereal in with her green beans and she ate almost all of the mixture!! I suppose we will add cereal to it and slowly add less and less cereal. Overall, I think she's doing very well. It's a huge change from breastmilk to this crazy food for her! :)

We've also started giving her a sippy cup with either water or very watered down apple juice in it. Her poops have been like clay and sometimes she cries when she poops! :( So Aunt Haley told us to give her a little juice. It worked, thanks goodness! POOR THING! :)

She thinks she's hot stuff--and this is now her new favorite toy!

Look mom! I can stand by myself!
Mia is doing GREAT! She had a little bug last Tuesday night so I stayed home with a crabby girl on Wednesday. She never ran a fever, but she was definitely trying to fight something!!
I have less and less free time these days. Usually 5 of the 7 nights (after Mia goes to bed) I am busy reading and doing homework for school. I have 2 classes this semester and they are more work than what I have had in the past! So I try and get 3 hours of studying in a night, but sometimes I just crash out early and go to bed. Things are crazy busy, but I wouldn't have it any other way!

Rub a dub dub

I should really be doing some of my reading for grad school, but thought I would post a few pictures from the weekend first :)
Mia went to see Dr. Reyes on Friday!
Weight 15 lbs
Height 26 in
Head 16 in
100% perfect!
She was too busy playing with the crinkle paper on the scale and table, so this was the best shot I got of her! Mia is now eating cereal (starting on starches 1st) every night for dinner. In about a week we will get to try her 1st vege, which will probably be carrots! She told us to introduce 1 new vege about every 4-5 days. So I'm guessing at 7 months she'll get to try some fruits!! Hopefully she'll hate junk food and be a good eater like her daddy!

Just woke up from a little nap on Saturday. She went to watch her cousin Maddie play basketball!

This was TOO funny with all 3 kids in the tub. It was hard to get a good picture of all 3 of them.
The first one is of Mia's sweet shampoo mohawk!
Finding all 50,000 of Jayden's bath toys!
Um, quit stealing my toys Mia! Cannot wait for this summer! These 3 are going to have SO much fun together!

6 Months of pure happiness

This beautiful little girl is snuggled up on my lap in her blankie. She's 6 months old today. She's just what we needed and more than we had ever hoped for.
Happy 1/2 birthday sweet Mia!

May try and post more pictures once she takes a nap and has more smiles for me :)
