I love this time of the year, all the Holidays and parties! We went to a Halloween Party with the girl scouts. Sarah’s troop invited Samantha’s troop and we had a lot of fun! Both girls won in the costume contest. Samantha got best overall costume, and Sarah the cutest costume. I kinda knew Sam had it in the bag though. She looked awesome.
Shelby loves to play, dance, and talk. She finally has been saying “mama” again but crawls around saying “dada” all day long! She also is finally enjoying baby food!
oh man, tomorrow Shelby hits 31 weeks old! I a behind!
ok, so last week Shelby started getting up onto her knees and pulling up. She falls over very easily of course but she is so darn curious she has to know what’s going on with everyone. She puts everything in her mouth and loves water.
She also has started saying “mama” but it sounds like “mmmmmmm” and when she is REALLY mad or hungry.
She is not a fan of food at all and hardly eats any baby food.
We have officially outgrown all 0-3 month clothing, and a lot of 3-6 month stuff.
Samantha and Sarah had their first girl scout meeting! They had a blast. I also signed up as the assistant troop leader.
Ok so technically Shelby is 6.5 months now, looking back how can it possibly have been six months already?
This past month Shelby has learned so many things, from crawling to giggling all the time. She has also started making tons of funny sounds and loves to laugh at herself or shriek at herself in the mirror.
We don’t have 6 month stats yet, but I weighed her yesterday (6.5 months) and I got 17 lbs. I think she is about 27 inches long.
We are still slowing introducing her to solids, she doesn’t have solids every day yet. She isn’t really interested in eating food yet. we are still breastfeeding and she also refuses to take a bottle. We have tried a few times and she just turns her head.
Shelby loves to sit and play with toys. Her favorite toys are those that light up and make sounds. She also loves to be entertained by people. talking to her, playing peek a boo and watching you clap or sing.
She can sit up by herself and this past week has learned to lean forward to get onto her stomach and crawl. She army crawls and can move quickly on her tummy. She is fascinated with cords and outlets… time to baby proof things!
This week the kids started school! They were so excited to start. Hubby and I decided the Sunday before school starting we would take them down to San Antonio and visit the Alamo and Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! We all had a wonderful last day of “summer vacation”.
Both girls LOVED their teachers, so I am excited to see how this school year gos.
On Shelby news she can sit on her own. On the 29th she started sitting for a few minutes at a time and every day since she sits longer. She doesn’t know how to get into the sitting position but she loves to sit and play.
My girls started school on Monday at a brand new school in a new state! I was very nervous for them. I know how scary it can be going to a new school and sitting in a classroom full of kids you don’t know and have no friends yet.
I couldn’t wait for 2:45 to come so I could pick them up and see how their day went.
Well both girls made friends, love their new teacher and Sam was beyond excited to tell me about her music class and how she wants to try out for choir next week!
The have music class, art class and PE twice a week (I believe). I am looking forward to back to school night next week to learn more!
