Sheridan French giveaway

So if you haven't discovered Sheridan French already, go to her blog immediately. She has the cutest, most stylish, make you laugh out loud blog that has become quite the staple of my daily reads. She is the mother of 2 precious kiddos (her latest was born just a few weeks after Zoester!), she is the fashion editor for FW Magazine, she has style like no other and a body that I can only dream of AND she has her own clothing line to boot! Talk about life that I covet!

Check out her blog stat, and you might even be the lucky one to win a piece of your choice from her clothing line....although you'll have to beat me to it because I think I've entered every which way I possibly can in hopes of being the lucky winner. I'm even considering opening a twitter account just so I can have an extra entry ;)

Summer Fun

We started our annual housesitting stint for the summer which means we get to have pool time! I bought swim diapers and a turtle floatie and got Zoe all decked out! I think I was more excited about it then she was though, b/c she only made it about 20 minutes and then she was over it. And I got paranoid about her getting too much sun since she can't wear sunscreen yet so it was a short lived pool party, but I did manage to get some cute pics.

We also tried our 1st rice cereal the other day. I don't really understand the point of cereal though. It looks like it has the taste of an old sock and the nutritional value is practically null also. But I guess it helps her learn the spoon so we'll keep at it. We tried some bananas today- they were met with equal indifference as the cereal- so I'm hoping as we keep it she will get more into it.


Give me that.

I think I like chewing on the spoon the best.

Zoe has also almost mastered sitting up. I say almost because you can set her down and she'll hold it for a few minutes, but you still can't trust her to not topple over and crying will then ensue. But she's getting there.

I've got this sitting thing down.

I like Roscoe.

And I'm over it now.

5 months

So Zoe turned 5 months old on the 11th....I'm a little late with this post I know. That's what happens when Mommy is in trial (and won my 1st capital murder I may add!). Last couple of weeks have been pretty busy work wise but it all paid off.

The Zoester has really been hamming it up lately. We are saying "da da da" just in time for Father's Day. We are almost sitting up by ourself- she can hold it for a few seconds and then falls to the side. Sleeping is still going great- she still is on her back, no rolling over, which is fine by me. The transition to the sleep sack was a breeze- no more swaddles for us. All it took was realizing that once her arms were free she needed something to hold on to after we left. She likes to hang on tight to our fingers and would cry when we broke free, but her little bunny friend has quickly stepped in and taken over the job quite nicely. My friend Kelly was very right about the transitions- they are much more stressful for Mommy than for baby. Now I've moved on to worrying about when to add food, I still don't think she really needs it so we'll probably wait until 6 months or right before she goes to her 6mth appointment.

I feel like this is such a fun age with her....every day we just watch and can see what she is learning. Taylor and I are constantly looking at each other and going, "well, that is new!" It really is fascinating to see how her little brain is developing and taking it all in.

we're having a moment here, can we help you?

I'll take that, thank you

these feet things are pretty cool!
