The plan was to wait until 6 months, but she was ready weeks and weeks ago! She's been grabbing at our food and especially our drinks and always so excited. So, Saturday we let her suck on our apple. And today we went for some actual baby food. Sweet potatoes!

She was quite pleased!

Mommy forgot the mess new eaters make. Silly me didn't have a bib on at first!

Daddy is feeding her here...look at her eyes looking at him. "Oh thank you Daddy, I've been waiting for this!"

Eating is sooooo fun!

But I have to blow a few bubbles, like always!

"Why are you taking so long?"

Happy tummy!

First swim

Yes, she's 5.5 months old and going swimming for the first time, even though we live in South Florida.  She LOVED the water. But of course she did, she is our water baby, born in the water and everything!

The splashing, the squealing with excitement, the constant looking around and smiling. She was a happy girl!

Maybe after this fun filled day, we will get back into the routine of going swimming more regularly!

She's 5

This sweet thing is 5! So hard to believe! 

She is such a girlie girl! Loves pink, sparkles, dress up, and accessories. She wants to wear last year's dance costume all the time (like to the bus stop, to play outside). And asks all the time! For her party, she got a yes! She was thrilled!! :)

She wanted another gymnastics party!

With a ballet slipper cake!

She had a great time!!

And then she had her birthday celebration at school (a day early, because of a special event at school on her birthday)

At her request, a cookie cake, with yellow flowers (she saw this the other day at the store and had to have it herself), and Happy Birthday written in pink! According to the teacher, it was a big hit, with a very quiet room of children enjoying cookie cake!

Her school has so much fun stuff celebrating a birthday. Here they were dancing around Kaisley, as she pretended to be the candle! I was able to go and be a part of the fun, along with Sutton and Rinley! It was so cute!

Then, finally her actual birthday!!


Breakfast donuts!

Pedicure with mommy!! Such a fun girl time! She even got a flower on her big toe, which she loved!
