6 months!

Wow! Violet is already 6 months old! She is 14 pounds, 9 ounces and 26 inches. She's grown 7 inches is six months!!! She started sitting up by herself a couple of weeks ago. We're getting the carpets cleaned because it's only a matter of time before she starts to crawl. We tried our first solids today--rice cereal, which got a definite thumbs down.

She's not the tiny baby she was!
18 weeks gestation

just born

1 month

2 months

And she can sit up! (sort of)

She's spent and needs provisions.

Happy 4th of July!

Violet celebrated her first 4th of July with two barbecues. She went to sleep before the fireworks this year--we figured she would just be afraid of them. She did enjoy "Meatfest" at my friend Jenny's house.

Jenny's sister Crystal was nice enough to take her off my hands for a couple of hours. Violet loved the attention and I actually got to enjoy the party.

Next up: We're going to hit the pool later this week. I'm curious just how well swim diapers work...
