Growing, Growing!

I love taking pictures.
Here are a few of the happenings going on here lately!
She has finally mastered tummy time. She was about 4 months old when she did this. She went from face plants one day, to this the next. She has a "large" head.... and by large I mean giant. She clearly got my noggin & not Weston's!
She still only does it for about 5 minutes, but we're so proud!
She LOVES standing. Like a lot.
& then when she's done with it she'll start to whine.
Also her big head & smaller body make me laugh. I love it so much!
This munchkin is my favorite ever.
Also, I will take a picture & show you all these amazing jammies my mom made. As in, made & embroidered. Its the same pattern she made my sister & I jammies from as babies. The ribbing around the neck & wrists is the exact same fabric she cut our edges from, too. I'm all about that sweet sentimental stuff.
Have I mentioned we've started level 1 solids? We started at 4 months... we started with rice cereal. She hated it, but grew to like it...as in not rejecting automatically.
We also have tried green peas. I heard it takes atleast 10 times for the baby to try it to like it...well she still hates peas. We have been cooking & mashing sweet potatoes for her...she wolfs those down. Go figure.
We have a sweet potato lover on our hands.
Or, if you're from the south, sweet pahtatahs, as they're properly pronounced.
I hope you enjoy this picture as much as me.
She is all smiles EVERY TIME I come to grab her from her crib.
Such sleepy eyes!
I love this babe.
Also, please take note of all the pics of her eyes. I am obsessed with their gorgeous color & lashes. 
Mm, love her.
She really loves that rattle.
a lot.
"Excuse me, we're talking here."
We do nightly family walks. Well....one night it was really cold. I'm talkin 40 degrees people. REALLY cold.
So we bundled up. Walked to the edge of the driveway & turned around as icicles & walked back.
20 min prep time for walk. 3 minute walk.
Have I mentioned my sister & I have been working on something awesome. Note all these bows. & hang on tight.
A warmer family walk. Also, Ivy had diarrhea, so she was on a pedialyte regiment.
Sweet tired baby pre-bedtime.
Her Grandma Joanie & Grandpa Dave gave her this toy for Christmas.
It is her absolute fave!
Sleeeepy sleepy.
Very sleepy.
Remember how I told you she has diarrhea?
One night she woke up at 4 a.m. with a complete blow out. Like for reals it was up to her neck and all over the crib.
Weston was working one of his 3x/week night shifts so I was on single mom duty for this one.
I plucked her out of bed, stripped her down & put her in the tub.
This little fish loved it, as always.
Then she pooped in the tub.
I didn't love that.
I pulled her out, cleaned the tub & then stuck her back in.
She pooped again.
This time I let her sit in it for a minute in case she had to go more.
Deciding that Hepatitis B could be setting in at any second, I pulled her out after a few minutes of no pooping & cleaned out the tub again.
Refilled tub, stuck her in the tub.
She played.
& then pooped.
This time I hosed & washed her down in the sink and laid her on this towel in the hall while I cleaned everything up & then got her all dried & dressed & we were up for the day.
I was so tired.
& the first time or two I was so exhausted & not enjoying it so much.... the third time I was laughing so hard.
Did I mention we were both so tired?
Co-napping. They do a lot of that when he's home.
Poor guy is working full time & graveyards & then goes to school for class or studying every day afterwards. He is a tired guy.
Remember that 3 minute walk?
This is another set of those jammies. The embroidered cartoon character is on the back of this one...it is to die for.
That's a little of my personal life as around 4 months after Ivy's birth!

  2. Oh and Ivy is too cute, and that poop story was hilarious.

  4. I'm lol'ing about the poop bathtub. SICKO!
