some AdveNtuRes...

just an update on what we've been up to the past little while...
Lately, we have been spending LOTS of time with Hattie... getting ready for that new little nugget to come!!! we CAN'T WAIT to snuggle and kiss it!
last week we got a group of us together to go see the butterflies at the Wild Animal Park. A whole day built around the butterflies... and Lydi got tired in line. of course, she woke up 2 minutes after we got outside. i guess the girl loves her sleep...
yesterday, i put some cheerios on her high chair while we ate dinner. usually she just plays with them until i feed them to her... but THIS time, she grabbed a few and popped them in her mouth. it's so cute how much she loves food!!!
and just a quick one of the sink bath. she jumps and gets excited when i turn the water on. SO cute.

the LAst few dAys...

Bex and Hattie took us to the beach yesterday because it was GORGEOUS! This mama got her first sun of the season (so very excited! and needed...I was definitely very pregnant all last summer!) Don't worry, Lydi was fully clothed. Hattie showed Lydi everything there was to know about filling buckets and "looking for crabs."
Lydi was in HEAVEN! Even after a faceplant, she wouldn't stop playing. she just kept grabbing handfuls of sand and staring at it...passing it from one hand to the other... she was COVERED before I could even get her clothes changed. and her leg warmers were FULL of sand when we left!

and this last picture is just tonight before bathtime. She was being so funny and trying so very hard to get from one place to another...but of course backing herself into corners and spinning in circles. Why is it so fun to watch?Bex was awesome enough to take some pictys of our family this weekend and I haven't really had a chance to go through them! Hopefully I'll get to them tomorrow...

AvocAdo!!! ANd A few otheR thiNgs...

so here's a picture update. mostly i just love this first picty because of her green dipe, halloween onesie and unmatching legwarmers... it was just one of those nights...
discovering the grass for the very first time. i could NOT get her to look at me!
i just love her face in this one! she loves sea world!
my baby girl with her sippy cup. she took to it right away and jumps and reaches out when she sees it!
and finally... her first real food. avocado. and SHE LOVED IT! true california girl right there. :)
remember when there were pictures of things other than this girl on this blog. sorry. she is our world lately. and we love it. i can't believe she is six months old. where has the time gone! i cried when she ate rice cereal. it's so hard for this mama that she is growing up! but it is so fun too. the bittersweet life of a parent, i guess. she's such a joy to have in our home. she's always smiling and happy. she LOVES to cruise around the house and follow us in her walker. she loves books and singing. she loves her mama. she makes it worth getting up (VERY EARLY, mind you) in the morning to see what she is going to learn each day. we are so grateful for this little lady in our lives!
