Time Flies: Week 20

Big stuff happened this week, with the introduction of solid foods!  We were really surprised at her four month checkup when Dr. Hutton immediately observed that she was functioning like a six month old, and that it was definitely time for her to be eating.  I had been doing some research for whenever the time came, and was a little uneasy about starting with rice cereal.  Without sharing my opinion, I asked Dr. Hutton what we should begin with, and she said sweet potatoes or avocados, which made our decision an easy one.  I had sweet potatoes at home, so we fixed some up and she never looked back.

This week brought a break in the form of cooler temperatures and a slight reduction in humidity.  The mosquitoes have been horrendous this summer, which meant being stuck inside most of the time.  Ben is a part of a trio (Mr. Goodstache) that often plays on Sunday afternoons at a local coffee shop, Kudu.  It is one of his favorite ways to unwind, and Olivia and I have been going out and even staying the whole time because she loves it so much.  The music, the outdoors, and the constant view of her main squeeze makes a pretty great afternoon for her.

It is so much fun watching the enjoyment that comes from the new flavors!
I love looking in the backseat and finding this.
God is the most incredible creator.  Look at those lips!!
Waiting for her lunch like a big girl.  (In her Halloween PJ's)
Used to holding Mommy's hand while she eats...
Reading about Uncle Marky at the Doctor's office.
Such a sweet personality.
Listening to Daddy's music.  Oh, and Uncle Micah and Christian!
So happy for cooler weather (80's).
