Sitting Up!

You have been sitting up on your own for a minute or two for about a week now but today you sat up for a long time, so I think we can say you are "sitting up" now!

5 months old

You are 5 months old today!

You have been having so much fun doing so many things!  Lately you have started to really "shake" your rattles and toys to get them to make noise.  It's pretty funny to Mommy because you bang those toys on everything, including your poor head!  Thankfully you don't seem to mind when you hit yourself! =)

You also are starting to really notice and love the dogs!  You sit on the floor in your bumbo and they come up to you and you scream and talk to them.  You hate when they go away and to get them back you scream at the top of your lungs. It's too funny!

Today was technically Daddy's "first" father's day! 
Last year Mommy surprised Daddy with this gift for Father's day...
This year we spent the day together with YOU!  On Friday we went shopping to get Daddy a new watch for father's day so we gave it to him this morning and then decided to go run errands.  We went to Buy Buy Baby and ordered you a jumperoo then had lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings.  Daddy had his favorite Buffalo chicken sandwich, which I am sure he will one day he will share with you!  After lunch we hung out at home then we went to visit Papa and had steak, baked potato and chocolate had avocado for dinner. One day you will get chocolate cake, don't you worry.   ;)

ThE CoOKs gO TO thE zOO!

Today Daddy surprised us and took the day off work to take you and I to the ZOO!! Mommy and Daddy were pumped, more so that you were, you napped the whole way there.  Once we got there everyone put on sunscreen and we were on our way.

Our first stop was Nikita the polar bear.  He was HUGE and so fun to watch, you were very intrigued to see hime jumping off the rocks into the water. =)  It was so funny to see how big your eyes got the closer to the glass he came.

After Nikita we went to the Sea Lion show.  You didn't get to watch too much of it because at that time you got hungry and Mommy had to feed you. 

 Daddy snuck a picture of us over in the shade while you ate.
After the sea lion show we went to "Africa".  You like the silly monkey!

You didn't make it much longer after the monkey exhibit before you fell asleep.  You were able to see the elephants, some birds, and a leopard.
We took the tram back to the entrance and it wasn't long before you were asleep in Daddy's arms!

We had a GREAT day!

~afternoon at the pool~

Today Mommy and Daddy took you SWIMMING!  The water wasn't the warmest BUT after the initial shock of the cool water, you started to really enjoy the pool!  Mommy moved your float around the pool and we sang Row Your Boat (that was the only song that came to my mind for the occasion) haha
After being in the water for a little while you were ready to eat then take a nap! 
On our way to the pool

Getting ready

The water was a little chilly

Gianna tries PEAS!

Today Nani came over and we made you some peas and avocado.  It's so exciting for Mommy to be able to make your food, rather than buy it in jars and containers at the grocery store, that way Mommy can get the best produce for you!  Here's a picture of Nani with your peas. 
After Nani and I spent the evening making and freezing some baby food, you were ready to try peas the next day.  After the first bite, I would have to say you liked the peas!

4 month Dr. appointment

Today you went to see Dr. Beardman for your 4 month check up.  She was so proud of how much you have grown and developed in the past 2.5 months.  You weigh 13.7lbs and you are 24 in long.  Still a little peanut but you have made great growth since you were born. Dr. B also said we could start you on veggies, then fruits.  She told us to introduce a new veggie to you every 4 days to make sure you aren't allergic, then after 4 days try something else.  So we are going to start with peas,  move on to avocado, then zucchini...After the green veggies, it's onto the orange and yellows. =)
 You also got 2 shots today, it was very sad for Daddy and I as you cried so hard!!!   But after a few seconds of crying you stopped and took a little nap.

You're on a BOAT

Today we went to Aunt Nancy and Uncle Joe's lake house.  You were a good little girl, and enjoyed sitting with Daddy and I on the dock looking out at the lake.

Mommy and Daddy were excited for you to take a ride on Uncle Joe's boat!  At first you weren't so sure about your massive life jacket, but after you got use to it...You REALLY loved the boat.  You even took a snooze once we got moving a little faster.

18 weeks old

This week was our very first week of SUMMER vacation together!  It feels soooo great to get to stay home with you again, I sure have missed it!  So far this week we have played (of course), worked on taking naps in our own bed, met your cousins from Colorado, went back to our breastfeeding support group and went shopping at Zona Rosa.  We've been busy!  Here are some photos from the week!
