a few more firsts

Mary just turned 6 months last week, and it's amazing to see how quickly she's growing and doing new things! We're a little late in getting these posted on here, but we'll make up for it with a few posts this week.

Last Sunday night, Mary sat up all by herself for the first time as I was feeding her before bedtime. She actually lasted a solid 2 minutes on my lap without me steadying her. Here are a couple pics from this momentous occasion. It kind of came from nowhere for us; we haven't exactly been diligent in working on this with her. Thankfully, Mary will not be held back by our negligence!

The next day Mary experienced the next stage in babyhood- eating solids! I'm still not sure why we call rice cereal "solid," but whatever. Here are a few pictures and a video from the big day.

Mary has gotten a bit better at eating, so she isn't wearing her cereal like she was a week ago. It's an exciting time for us, but also a little sad that we're moving out of the newborn stage and into the "eating goop and threatening mobility" stage. Our little girl is growing up!

As I said above, we'll try and get a few posts up this week since we've been really slow the last few weeks.

cute platapus!

i get colored onesies on the clearance rack. they usually have something cheesy on it and i cover it up.

and i put them on the top in the middle b/c the extra fabric catches drool. for real, it's cute and functional!

you are creative. everyone copies everyone. feel free to copy me!
