Big Girl Chair

Evalyn now has a high chair! We went today to Target to purchase it. We liked one online a little better, but this one I could use right away, and we saved a few dollars.

She REALLY likes it!

Here's a link to the video:

Go Green!

Evalyn's first food choice was avocado. Since she has been nursed exclusively for the first 6 months we are starting her into regular foods right away, no blah rice cereal. (No offense to anyone that chooses rice as first foods. We're just doing it our way.) Avocado also had lots of healthy oils and calories to it, and it's oh so yummy...even if Jason abhors it. :-) So I mashed up about half a tablespoon and mixed in some mommy milk to make it runny, since she's never had any food in her mouth, don't want her choking on it...and we got down to business.

That girl was going to eat the spoon and my hand with it on the first bite! She dove right in and LOVED it! She ate everything I prepared and then even licked the bowl some. She loved cleanup, until right at the end when she realized there would be no more, then she got mad. Hehehe
Here's a few pictures of this fun time. (Video should be up on youtube soon.)

6 Months Old

Our baby is 6 months old...that's half a year people! Time just flies by, even on the days where it crawls slower than a giant sloth. (which spends roughly 18-20 hours a day sleeping upside down from a tree. They move so slowly (if at all) that fungi and algae grow on them!) source

I can't believe that she's been home with us that long, and has changed so much during that time. Her little personality is showing more each day, even the not so fun side. She does have a bit of a temper it seems...must be because of her red hair. :-) We are so proud to be her mommy and daddy, and look forward to her calling us finally.. not just whining to get our attention.
Here's a photo right before she had her first solid food.
