Happy Half-year!

Is anyone else as shocked as we are that it has already been half a year since Alex blessed our lives? I'm just amazed at how fast time is flying!

Today Alex had her 6 month check-up with the pediatrician and she is doing great! She weighs 17 lbs and is 27 inches tall.  She is in the 75th percentile for weight and 90th percentile for height.  The doctor gave us the go-ahead for solid foods, so we decided to give Alex her first meal tonight.

How did it go?  Well.....I'll let Alex tell you.

"Hi. I'm starving.  Do you see my tummy?  I look hungry, don't I?"

"What's that you say?  Food?! Finally!"

"Give me that bowl.  Enough pictures, let's get this show on the road, Mommy!"

"Wait a second.  THIS is what I've been looking forward to?  WHAT is this?"

"Where's the hamburger Daddy was eating earlier? I've never seen you guys eating this stuff. Did you give me Sadie's dinner?"

"Hunger strike.  This is foul.  I refuse to eat this."

Oh my poor Angel! Those beautiful little eyebrows tell the whole story! We've got to find a way to "flavor-up" her cereal. :-)

XOXO Grandma Cindy

Look at that big belly! Hahaha! Hopefully she'll find something to eat that she likes better. But those expressions are priceless!
