Teething Teething and more Teething....

So S is well on her way to getting more teeth, last week her 3rd tooth came in last week and we can see the white top of the 4th but I also think that we are getting a 5th on the left side, near the back. S has been having a lot of trouble sleeping the past couple of nights... last night we were up to 2 am!!! YIKES... Tonight so far so good. We are doing Tylenol, Advil and Orajel, but even with all of these remedies they don't seem to be helping much so I am appealing to all the moms out there... any tips on helping my little one feel better during this uncomfortable time for her? All suggestions are welcome! Thanks.

In other news... Sophia has her third tooth! It broke through Thursday morning. Now we have 3 bottom teeth. We are now working on getting the 4th bottom tooth to cut through the gums.

Also S is now eating breakfast, lunch and dinner. She loves her food!! She is a great little eater.

6 months old.... half a year has gone by...

Where did the time go? I can't believe that I have a 6 month old baby!!

You are so amazing and beautiful. You are already doing so much, you teach me something new everyday. Yes, you teach me... you are my greatest gift.

Things you do at 6 months old!!

  • Your eyes are a blue-gray and sometimes green
  • You crawl everywhere
  • You have learned to crawl over objects
  • You prefer to sit on the hard wood floor not the blanket we have for you
  • You love the cat, Gwen, you get super excited when you see her, but she is not sure about you
  • you even like Maverick and you giggle when he licks you
  • You are still wearing your 3-6 month clothes
  • You are still in a size 2 diaper
  • Mommy and Daddy had to lower your bed to the third notch (only one more to go) because you have discovered pulling yourself up in the crib
  • you still have a 6 oz bottle every 3 hours
  • you eat breakfast and dinner, lunch coming soon!
  • you like prunes, pears, apples, squash, sweet potatoes, rice, oatmeal made with juice or water
  • you do NOT like frozen green beans, but you do like canned green beans, bananas, oatmeal made with formula
  • you have a very determined personality... you see something that you want and you are determined to get it
  • you are a mommy's girl thus far... but I predict that in a year you will be a total Daddy's girl
  • you take two 1-2 hour naps a day
  • you sleep from 7-7 (which is fabulous)
  • you love to go swimming
  • and most of all you love to be with your mommy and daddy

Show Us Where You Live Friday... Bathroom Edition

Its that time again... here are our two bathrooms. Sorry this is a quick post... it as been a long day and I am exhausted. Yesterday Zach and I started the P90X workout and I can barely move today... I am just pushing myself to finish the day... and looking forward to the end result. My bathrooms are not very decorative, but I did paint them when we moved in... they are the same texture as my kitchen walls. Enjoy the two quick pics!

The guest bathroom, also known now as Sophia's bathroom.
