Solid foods...not for me

A few weeks ago, Mommy started giving me a little bit of rice cereal a few times a week. I tolerated it, but wasn't overly impressed. Today, she decided to try something she thought I would like (as in she thought it might taste better).

For the record, I'm not a fan of solid foods!!!! Sweet potatoes aren't that sweet!! I clamped my mouth shut, but Mommy kept trying until I put up enough of a fuss.
We all agreed to wait a few more weeks before trying again....I can hardly wait.

This morning when I woke up, Mommy and Daddy were really excited. They said that it had snowed!! While I'm not exactly sure what snow is, since they didn't let me play in it (they said there wasn't enough to play in). I'm looking forward to it snowing again soon, and a little more, so that I can play in it!

20 Weeks

Today I am 20 weeks old, and I sure am growing fast. I keep Mommy busy during the day, and some at night too. I haven't been sleeping through the night the last few weeks, and I think it is starting to wear on Mommy and Daddy. I just like seeing them in the middle of the night, and need my pacifier, and they are nice enough to give it to me. I'm not sure how long they are going to put up with it, but I do let them have a few uninterrupted nights, so they really shouldn't complain.

My shirt says "Wiggly and Giggly" and I have a little room to grow into it. Daddy says my middle name should be Wiggles, so when Mommy found this shirt, she had to get it. I'm not really giggly yet, but I'm working on it. When Mommy blows on my tummy she can usually get a couple of laughs.

I guess I'm not quite as camera shy as I once was. Mommy thinks I'm a bit of a ham, and she calls me a "silly little girl" all the time. I'm just showing her the things that Daddy taught me!!

Quick trip to Charlotte

We mad a quick trip to Charlotte on Sunday afternoon, because Grandpa was in Atlanta all weekend and he drove up to see me, I mean us. We all stayed at "Uncle" Jonathan and "Aunt" Brittney's house. (They aren't really my uncle and aunt, but Daddy and Jonathan have been really close friends since they were little, and lots of people think they are brothers.) It was really fun having Grandpa to play with, and he held me lots, but I was sad that Grandma wasn't able to be there (she had to stay home and work.)

This is Carley, Jon and Brittney's dog, checking me out. I was checking her out too. She reminds me of my Lily.

New Adventures

I got a new toy!!! Well, actually, it is a bunch of new toys...and Exersaucer!!! I sit in the middle of all these fun toys, some of which light up and play music!! I can spin around to reach them all, and bounce up and down (which has become my new favorite activity, so my new nickname is Tigger.) Mommy lets me play like this a few times a day, which she is excited about, because she then has her hands free for a few minutes.

My friend Ava

This is my friend Ava. She is the daughter of Mommy and Daddy's good friends Trip and Andrea. She was born two days after me, and lives just down the street. We went to their house the other night, and I finally got to play with Ava for a few minutes. Then it was time for bed for both of us, but they promised we could play again soon.

I voted!!!!! (with Mommy)

Well, today I'm 18 weeks old and I went with Mommy when she voted!! I was a big hit, of course, and Mommy let me wear her sticker, and I got to wear my elephant hat!!!

So here are my 18 week pictures.

Look what I can do now!

Getting to spend some quality time with Daddy on his day off.

Trying out the Jolly Jumper Grandma and Grandpa gave me. I like hanging out it, but I think I need to grow just a little more before I can really put it to good use.

Its official. I now try to put everything I grab onto in my mouth...Daddy's fingers, Mommy's hair, toys, bibs, blankets...

And I am even starting to feed myself, well sort of. I like to hold the bottle, but sometimes I end up pulling it out of Mommy or Daddy's hand (just checking their reflexes!)

What an eventful week

So here we are on Halloween. Nana and Papa came up to see me, and then we all went to have dinner with Daddy, since he had to work. I'm dressed up in my Lady Bug outfit. (Aren't I cute!!) Daddy was so glad he got to see me in my costume on my first Halloween.
So, this past week, I finally got over my cold, and passed it on to Daddy. Mommy stayed well, which is really good, because somebody had to take care of me and Daddy. I got lots of comments from people at church about how small I am (I not very chubby, but hey, look at my parents) and about how I'm strong, but never still. (I think they called me wiggly, and Daddy says he should have named me Wiggles, because I'm never still, not even when I sleep!)
I went back to the doctor for my 4 month checkup (yup, its been 4 months since my grand entrance). Doc said I'm doing well. I'm 24.5 inches and weigh 10 lbs. 2 oz. I have some dry skin, but nothing that some good lotion won't help. I got two shots, but I did much better this time and didn't turn purple from crying so hard, so that was an improvement.
On Friday, I hit another big developmental milestone. I rolled from my back to my front for the first time!! I surprised Mommy when I did it...I had just gotten a bath and Mommy was putting lotion on me on the kitchen counter when I decided it was time to make it all the way over (I had been trying for a few weeks, but couldn't quite make it all the way until yesterday!)
