It is crazy to think that the Malligator is 5 1/2 months and Alligator is almost 2. TWO. 2 years old. Amazing! (Oh also notice how original I am in hiding M's name? I know some of my readers know my kids' names, but some don't, and I'd like to keep some things a bit private.)
So we are doing pretty well around here! Everyone is sleeping better at night. Our days and nights are way more predictable. I kind of feel like I have the hang of things around here. It was right around this time with Alligator I felt this way too.
A lot of people have asked us about solids for the Malligator because she's 5 1/2 months and a lot of people start at 4 months. We are not those people. ;) We are waiting. It is much easier to give her a bottle or a boob right now, why mess with that!? With Alligator we waited until nearly 8 months and it did not harm her one bit. She eats almost anything. She loves some vegetables. She loves fruit. And she will tear up some BBQ meats. Her favorite veggie: lima beans. For real. She will pick them all out of the mixed veggies first when we have them with dinner. She is such a silly girl sometimes too.
Here are some pictures I have to share, finally.
Here she is! So excited to be 5 months old!
Not quite sitting up on her own yet, but very very close.
I have a picture of myself in a grocery bag when I was about Alligator's age. My dad was holding m e and I had a similar smile going on. Well this is MY grocery bag and here is Alligator in it. I made this bag and I suppose I made it pretty well. I was swinging her around in this thing for a good 15 minutes. She weighs about 29 pounds!
bokeh going on. Next I need to figure out how to do some good Photoshop tweaking. Not bad though? I have a good subject. ;)
Malligator sticking out her tongue. She loves doing this right before I hit the camera button instead of smiling.
Here are some very cute bibs a friend of mine sent me. You can get your own custom bibs here: http://stores.ebay.com/Deals-by-Kathy

I also was looking through my pictures on my computer and found THIS blog entry from last year around this date. Amazing what a year does. Here are the pictures from that post. This kid cracks me up!
