HAPPY 6 MONTH BIRTHDAY PERRY & ELLA!
6 month pictures taken at Portrait Innovations
Congratulations to Aunt Angela and Uncle Julio on tying the knot!
Ella liked touching Uncle Andrew's hair
I'm *kind of* sitting...does this count?
I don't want to sit, I just want to be silly
All right, fine, I'll sit...is this okay?
Bananas were okay, neither one of them cared much for applesauce,
FINALLY Perry likes something...pears!!! Maybe because her nickname is Pear Bear??
Day at the zoo...for Mommy's First Mother's Day
In our stroller
Taking a nap during The River's Edge
The zoo worker said elephants are pregnant for 22 months...no thanks!!!
Ella and Daddy looking at some monkey butt
Mommy and Perry with a monkey butt in the background
Addax and a Giraffe
Checking out the zebras from our stroller
Sea lions and Seals
Polar bear and Grizzly bears
Perry and Mommy with the penguins
(right before one of them splashed us)
The rest of our 6 month professional pictures
(had to keep them a "secret" because they were the grandmas' Mother's Day presents)
We finished all the stage 1 veggies and fruits (except prunes...we're skipping those for now)
and we're going through some of the veggies a 2nd time and then will be moving on to stage 2's next week
Perry is doing really well...she opens her mouth and "chews" on the spoon
Ella does pretty well too...she's a bit messier and doesn't always open her mouth, but she likes almost everything
Ella with Andy & Perry with Tyler
(1st cousins, once removed...we think)
Ella introduced Andy to her friend Ralph
(she puked on him...or as Andy said, "She yakked on me")
Combining 2 activities into 1...Bumbo seats AND the activity mat
We re-visited squash, peas, and green beans...still not very excited about the green veggies...and we tried prunes.
We had our first stage 2 food tonight (May 23rd)...cereal with applesauce and bananas. Both girls really liked it.
Apparently Ella "stripped" while she was sleeping...Perry is cuddling her lovie
Trip to the Butterfly House
In our stroller...with our buddy Jacob
By the waterfall
Pretty flower...and lake
Ella didn't want to be a butterfly
Perry & Ella really enjoyed the carousel
Bridget and Jacob...and Mommy's view of horsey butt
Ella in our "new" doorway jumper (thanks Kelly, Jim, & Jakob!)
Not quite jumping, but she sure can turn around...and get her arm through the leg hole
In our pool attire
In our rafts at the kiddie pool
Ella was so content she almost fell asleep (until a big kid splashed her)...Perry was kicking away in the water
Back in our robes to go home (note the big drool coming out of Ella's mouth)
Perry's turn in the jumper...she LOVES it!
And she can get her arm through the leg hole too
(Maybe mommy and daddy are unaware that this is the "cool" way to use the jumper)
Mommy's cousin Ashley with Perry & Ella
Great Aunt Sandy with Ella...Mommy's cousin Alex with Perry
