Pearl – 6 Months Old

My Sweet Pearl is SIX months old.  Well, actually she will be seven months old tomorrow, but I’m looking at the bright side in that at least this blog post is only one month late!

Pearl is so, so sweet.  She is (mostly) calm and quiet and is an observer.  She likes to just take in her surroundings, she likes to look around and watch.  Mostly she watches her big sister and Emma.  They both make her giggle often.

She started eating some food, mostly purees, between 4 and 5 months and she is an EATER.  She hasn’t turned her nose up to one thing we have tried.  She loves it all and can down 4 ounces of baby food in a few minutes flat.  She loves baby puffs and the teething wafers.  Speaking of teething, she has three – the third one popped through yesterday.

She sits supported very well and spent a little time last night on the floor sitting by herself.  She jabbers all the time and loves to blow rasbperries.  She babbles “da da” and “ba ba”.  She rolls over when she really wants to, but is mostly content to stay in one place (which is A-OK with me).  She really enjoys sitting in her Bumbo seat, high chair, or exer-saucer to watch what is happening around her.

We love our Pearl Girl.  She is such a joy to have in our lives and I can’t wait to watch her personality develop over the next few months!

So proud to be sitting up.  I think she was looking over me to see Daniel Tiger.

Our second R-pod trip took us to Echo Bluff State Park. We decided to keep our trips in-state for a while, at least until we have a little bit more trailer experience. EBSP is a fairly new state park and I am not quite sure what I expected but...

Summer Skincare

I’m so excited to talk about my summer skincare routine.  I can’t believe I actually typed that!  Most of us are excited to share with friends when we find something we are excited and passionate about. I started using some Beautycounter products after Pearl was born.  Post-partum hormones wreak...

I realize a post like this sounds so extremely basic but I’m working on getting back into blogging.  For me right now that means I’m sharing what is going on in my life and right now, along with camping, I am enjoying allllll of the rosé! Until about two...

Summer 2018 – Camping @ Lake of the Ozarks

We bought a camper!  This sounds a bit dramatic, but this is a dream being realized. Paul and I have dreaming about something like this for as long as I can remember.  Read this post.  We are just dreamers!  One of the first times we spent a weekend away...
