Baby E's First Present

Baby E isn't quite sure what to do with the things inside the coolest part of Christmas - the wrapping paper and bows!! Mommy and Daddy will keep them for her when she will become more interested in them onstead of the paper!

This Candy Cane is Tippy!

G had a candy cane wrapped in tinfoil so it wasn't so sticky. She kept telling us it was we took off some on the tinfoil. Turns out a tippy candy cane is better than no candy cane!

Happy 5 Months!

Baby E -

We missed your 5 month birthday yesterday because we were so busy! We ended up at the doctor's office because you have sensitive skin. Doctor O. thinks it's eczema. Great - just like momma! While we were at the doctor's office, you were weighed and measured. What a surprise - you've gained weight. You are at 18 lb 9 oz with your clothes and shoes on. Yikes - that's more than 2 lbs since your last visit, less than a month ago! And you've grown almost half an inch.

This month we've done some fun things - we've joined a Mom's group, so we are making friends for both of us. You've started really trying to get around - you are up on your hands a lot trying to figure out how to move. Sometimes you sleep on your tummy, but you always do it face down, so it makes momma and daddy worry. You got to use your jumper seat even though you haven't figured out how to jump yet. You had your first Thanksgiving and tried to get a drink of Grampa's wine. You've eaten a bunch of rice cereal, mostly the kind with apples.

We also met two very important people. One was your 'cousin' Gwen that lives in Lake Orion. You pretty much just stared at each other, but we are looking forward to you tow playing together. The other was SANTA!!! You sat on his lap and didn't even cry. What a brave girl :-)

Now we are looking forward to Christmas and New Year's with you. It's going to be an exciting time!! Happy 5 months E!!

She Really is a Princess

We saw this bed at Art van when we were buying our bed. Isn't it perfect for our little princess? Just like Cinderella....

The One You've Been Waiting For...

Here's Baby E's picture with Santa. She wasn't scared, but she was obviously none too pleased either! Isn't this Santa so real? He's a big hit at the mall.

Baby E is Reading Already

While we were eating out last night, Baby E decided to get some reading in. This is her favorite new toy - crunchy fabric books. Thank goodness they absorb so much slobber!

Baby E just finished up some rice cereal (yummy, right?!) and has a few things to say about it...

Baby E's Big Mess

Baby E has been doing pretty good with her rice cereal (her favorite is Rice and Apples - yum!). But today was a different story - she put her hands in her mouth then proceeded to rub them in her eyes, on her forehead, and apparently, behind her ears. I'm still finding dried cereal on her little head!

Tummy Sleeping - Not Happening Lady!

Baby E has been flipping herself over from her back to her tummy when she wakes up in her bed. Then she does pushups like this and yells until someone gets her. She will not relax and just sleep on her tummy.

Here she is peeking over the top to see if anyone is coming to save her. Silly girl!

Jump, Jump, Jump

Baby E now holds her head steady enough to use her doorway jumper. She hasn't figured out the jumping yet, but she likes to twiest around on her toes - it's pretty cute!

Baby E and Kiara

Kiara and Baby E have kind of called a mutual, unstated truce. Kiara will come up on the bed, but stay far away from Baby E. So, one day, I moved E over to Kiara, and she got to pet her! I think Kiara has finally decided that E isn't going anywhere, so she might as well be friendly!

E's Turkey Dress

Baby E's Turkey dress was quite a hit! Isn't she pretty? She had on little white shoes too, but she kept kicking them off. Just like Mommy!
