**Sleeping on stomach**Eating cereal (and her dad's)**Sitting up on her own**Rolling and rolling**Cleaning the floor with her tummy**Loving every dog she sees**Trying lots of different fruits and veggies**
This little gal began eating cereal about a month ago. We knew it was time when she reached into her dad's cereal bowl and tried a piece before he even realized it. Here are some pictures of her first taste of baby food:
|She decided it would be easier if she just leaned over as far as she could to get it in her mouth faster.|
|She doesn't like to waste a drop!|
|Oh the beauties of daycare. Can't be upset about it though because I'm sure she'll give biting a try some day.|
We took a weekend trip up to Grand Lake, CO. It was Vivian's first trip to the mountains and we had a great, little family getaway.
|First time putting her toes in the sand.|
|Our hotel room had a bunk bed and she loved hanging out on the top bunk like a big girl.|
|Modeling her new bonnet from Grandma Julie and Grandpa Fred.|
|First time eating bananas!|
|Reading the newspaper is boring, you have to eat it.|
|One of her many goofy sleeping positions.|
I wanted to do something a little special for her 1/2 Birthday and since she can't dig her hands into a big chocolate cake just yet, I decided to make some "baby pancakes" for her. I made them with half a mashed banana and pureed sweet potatoes, plus a little rice cereal to thicken them up enough to somewhat stay in a pancake-ish form. Then I cooked them in a little olive oil.
|She loved that we sang "Happy Half Birthday" to her!|
|And loved me blowing out her candle before she could grab it.|
