Spit Up

Well, I decided I had better blog about this before it's too late. It's such an important subject, you know, how would you all live without hearing about Genna's spit up? :)

Let's start here, with her first spit up, while we were still in the hospital. She quickly realized that Dad was her favorite person to spit up on (especially during church...on his suit...)

Here is a beautiful close-up of what we loving call the "Spit Up Goatee." Self-explanatory.

This one shows off what happens when Genna spits up, I don't see it right away, and she decides to crawl right through it. All of her clothes now have black tummies. At least she is smiling!

Here is the evidence, when I did catch her before finger-painting in it.

And, last but certainly not least, the evolution of spit up. Anyone want to guess what she had for lunch?

I Feel Pretty...

Oh so pretty! These are some cute pictures of Genevieve in a new onesie from her Aunt Holly. In case you can't read it, it says: "This is my little black dress."

I decided to complete her outfit with a pink headband, some stick-on earrings, and a sparkly purse.

"Mom, can I eat my purse?"

Thanks Holly!

Taste of Fall

This summer has been quite hot, especially with no air conditioner or swamp cooler...and we are missing quite a few screens, which makes it difficult to keep the windows open for a breeze. I had assumed that August would be hotter than July, so all through last month, I kept thinking - how are we going to survive?

Well, I am happy to say that I was wrong! After some research online, I discovered that July had higher temperatures than August last year. That pattern seems to be true this year as well: the next ten days are forecasted in the high 70's to mid 80's. Yesterday, it only got up to 70! (It was a cloudy and rainy day.) It was so interesting to feel reminded me that summer is drawing to a close, and that before I know it - fall (which is my FAVORITE season) will arrive!

I know that there will still be some hot days to come, but I believe the worst is over. I am ready to appreciate the end of summer, and prepare myself to enjoy a beautiful fall.

First taste of yummy...

These are two fun videos of Genna's first tastes of real food - strawberries and rice cereal. This first one was taken when we were eating dinner at the Cluff's home, and Reid let Genna suck on a strawberry. (I later read that it's a good idea to hold off on the berries...oh well, she didn't die.) Reid kept pulling it out to make sure that she hadn't bit off a piece, but she kept grabbing Reid's hand and pulling it back!

This second one is Genna's first taste of rice cereal. It's so fun to see the confused look on her face - what is this stuff?
