Have you ever heard a funnier word?!

(It is dark because she was supposedly taking a nap.... I'll take giggles over naps any day!)

Uncle Dan is definitely going to be missed. He's headed to serve a mission in Guadalajara Mexico!

We'll see if Uncle Brad (who comes home from his mission tomorrow) can take the place of Uncle Dan!

cereal yum yum

I thought for sure I'd be one of those "absolutely nothing but milk for the first six months" type of moms, but I found out I'm not. (At least not yet!) I've been wanting to give rice cereal to Little E for awhile now mainly hoping it would help her sleep longer and better. So after our 4 month appointment and the go-ahead from the pediatrician, we gave it a go. And it's been fun . :) She has been sleeping better but who knows if that is the reason why!

Side note: 4 month stats-- 14.5 lbs (68%ile) and 26.25" (98%ile). Poor girl is going to be a lerp just like her mom!

Here's a video of the first time. I love the look of absolute disgust!

We've been giving it to her once a day and she's started getting the hang of it. It is a VERY messy process though!
We discovered what happens when she sneezes with food in her mouth... :)

I'll go ahead and admit that that pic is DANG CUTE. :)

au naturale

I came across this blog while I was pregnant and enjoyed reading the birth stories of these women. Hearing so many different stories really helped prepare me.

I thought I would post the link in case any of you are wanting info on a natural birth.
And some of you may wish to add your stories to it.
