We had a great weekend. It was the first weekend in a long time that we hung around the house and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Who doesn’t love a lazy weekend?! Next weekend will be a busy one for us- we’re painting the living room and guest bathroom! And then, my friends, the home improvements will be complete for a long while! Yay! We are also heading to Dallas to do some shopping for the fall for Rory. I had tons of clothes for her sizes so far but don’t have much at all for 6-9 months.

Of course, I won’t leave out pictures of the little stinker. I know the grandparents only want to see her face on here! 🙂

butternut squash

Yesterday was a hard day for us. I’ve been fighting a migraine for three days and after we got home from the doctor Rory started running a low grade fever. She was so pitiful. We snuggled on the couch all afternoon.

This morning she woke up laughing! I kept hearing this noise and so I went to check on her and she’s laying there giggling. She’s been so happy all morning and its been great.

At the doctor yesterday I got the go ahead to start feeding her stage one foods. How can it be?! How is my baby already at this stage?! I cried just a little when we bought the baby food at WalMart for the first time. Just a little….

So we’ve tried some butternut squash!

waiting for the review…


She loved it. She’s eaten it four times now and she eats all that I will give her. Last night she ate a whole jar!

Well we all know she loves her excersaucer. Now she loves to look at herself in the mirror and talk to herself. Its hilarious. Yesterday I caught her grabbing the mirror and trying to kiss it. Of course I couldn’t get to my camera in time. Here’s a couple of cute pics of her playing.

checking herself out

I do believe she’s telling herself something… look at that hand, ha!
