DC Trip (5 Months) and 6 Month Review

we took a trip to DC and had a blast!  the cherry blossoms were out in full force and we timed it perfectly!  stella loved it and so did nate ... it was both their first time in the capital!


and we got to see some good friends and their baby that is one week older than Stella!  It was so so so fun to see them :)

Stella's sixth month has been full of lots of milestones - she is cutting her first tooth!  she loves chewing on those linking rings - best few dollars ever spent!

she is getting so big! i transitioned her into 6 month clothes at the end of her 5th month and she spent less than a month in them!  cute little outfits like this one were only worn once or twice!  she is now in 9 month clothes ... and counting :)

she also started "talking" babbling up a storm with ba ba ba and mum mum mum mma ... i of course think she is saying mama. she finally rolled over from her tummy to her back for the first time!  but she only does it when she really has to!  while she was an early sitter she is taking her sweet time on the rolling over.  

 she still hates solids ... she likes the idea of eating and all the trappings of it but the actual food itself - she is not a fan ... so i decided to take the stress off us both and quit trying for a few weeks.  i will try again sometime in may.  this is the progression of her first time eating sweet potatoes ...

we also transitioned her to the bath tub (this picture shows the baby tub too but now that we have a non-slip mat she is in the tub with out it) ... it is her special daddy time and she loves her rubber duckies!

we have had some nice days and been outside ... stella was not enjoying it - she must be a true Pacific Northwesterner! (to be fair, it was nap time).
